Hi

 

I'm thinking of buying a second hand beolab 7.1 sound bar, but wanted to make sure all I needed to connect to it was a power cable plus a input signal  din plug ( with the 5V trigger signal as part of it )

Is my understanding correct?

Thanks

Hello, yes there is some option, especially with arc/E-arc, some cheap and some more expensive, if you want to use the TV's remote control

a good option is HALL audio which comes with a splitter 8 din around 235 euros, with this one you can also add a subwoofer-

Like written there is also cheaper arc audios out there, others will have to tell how they are working

 

Regards

Ol

Thanks for your answer.

 

Do you know if I can use a beo remote to control the soundbar volume or is it a "dumb" device and driven only by the din plug audio input?

No beo4 , it is control by the Tv's remote, I don't know anyway of keep using Beo4 to control the volume on the Beolab 7.2 without a B&O Tv---Btw the HALL audio also have Bluetooth and Wifi streaming, just a bonus.

 

Regards

Ole

So LG tvs only? We have a samsung tv that it would be good to use with.....

Our older 8-32 used to lose some of the screen so my wife asked if we could get another tv. But I still miss my B&O and the fact everything integrated.

Its a nuisance having to mess about with multiple remotes etc.

Maybe have releases for the BM7 that can be set up by on-screen menu, so you tell the BM7 what tv you have, it then downloaded its intructions from internet, so it can work with that tv. Job done. I think that would make it very valued by people like myself who want to protect our investment in our B&O gear.

Hi

We could release later on support for Samsung, Philips and more

You will be able to switch between TV brands in a setup by the remote

Congratulations, Rudi - your BM7 adapter seems to be a really great product!

You can control the motorized stand, the LG TV and the BL 7.x, all with Beoremote.

And I like your CX speakers, especially the active CX with support for Spotify, Airplay....and even Roon!

Are these speakers two way active or one way with passive crossover?

Are you working with Beocreate? What is BM Radio?

Sorry for so many questions, but I think, BM7 and your other products are really exciting, and maybe a nice christmas gift....

Hi Stefan

You seem to know more…

The website does not list a lot of specs on the BM7!

What is the CX speakers that you mention?

 

But interesting ‘project’ - I am also eager to learn more about the BM Radio.

Surely something to watch out for…..for those, who don’t want to get into the current BV line from B&O.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.
