Hi, I am a newbie from Stratford-upon-Avon, England here. It's nice to be a member and I hope someone can help. I have just inherited my father's old Beosystem 2500 unit though it does not have speakers. Rather than getting the 2500 speakers I was thinking of getting the B&O 6000 speakers. Is there any reason that this would be a problem? I am assuming not, but would appreciate some advice.

I also would like to bluetooth my iPhone to the unit. Is there a recommended solution or product available for this?

Many thanks for the help.

Hi Andrew - no problem at all connecting any Beolab speakers, including BL6000.

I’ll let someone else respond re. A Bluetooth receiver. I only use other Beosounds for this, e.g. Essence, Core.

With an iPhone, I would consider an Airport Express rather than bluetooth, probably the A1392 version that supports AirPlay 2.  They are no longer available new but often pop up on eBay - just make sure it's the later A1392.

EDIT: And add one of these to connect the Airport Express to the BC2500: https://soundsheavenly.com/bang-olufsen/67-298-minijack-to-aux-in-ipod-to-beosound-beomaster-beocenter-using-aux-din-socket.html#/2-length-1m

Many thanks also Guy. I'll start looking for an Airport Express.
