Hello BeoWorld!

 

I have a following equipment:

LG OLED77G1

BeoLab 18 & 19

Palatial BOP LCR66 - front

Celestial BOC86 - surround

Celestial BOC62 - 2nd zone

 

How would you connect all of this? AV receiver, BeoSystem, …?

You have many options! A recommendation would depend on your answer to these three questions:

1) Which remote do you want to use? The LG remote or BeoRemote One or Beo4/5/6?

2) If you want to stream music, do you want the LG to remain off or can you live with the screen coming on and using the LG as your AP2/CC/whatever endpoint?

3) How do you want to use your second zone?

1. I like the design of BeoRemote One very much. What I know about it is that it can replace all the remotes for AV system, but I don't have much experience with it. And I can live with LG.

2. Better if it’s off. Also I like Sonos app for iPhone for streaming services.

3. Second zone is for music in dining most of the time.

I find it hard to give any advices for this without knowing more about your wishes/requirements.

I you are thinking about sound from the LG TV, your problem is that you have no ‘AV receiver’ with the described setup!

I assume that you want that, since you describe the speakers as the channels of a ‘surround setup’.

(What did you do before the LG TV, and how were the 18/19  used previously)?

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Everything is new here, bl 18/19 wasn’t used before. 

I had a recommendation to buy Onkyo TX-RZ740, but there’s no supply in my region for a long time. Also Marantz SR5015, but there’s problem with connecting xbox x. And BeoRemote One is a good idea.

Okay, here is a suggestion. I'm not sure where you are located and if you can source the components:

- Almando Multiplay Surround Switch with Wisa. This is both a surround decoder and an AirPlay 2 or ChromeCast endpoint. Connect the BL18 and BL19 via Wisa and the Palatial + Celestial via an amp (e.g. BeoLink Passive or BeoAmp 2). If you want Sonos, you can add a Sonos Port.

- Drive your second zone through an amp of your choice and add a Airport Express if you want AP2, CC Audio if you need CC or a Sonos Port.

This is what I would get:

1. Beosystem 4 as AVR

2. Sonos Connect Amp for second zone

Using Sonos with B&O as well.
