Apart from the fact that FM radio – where I live – is almost dead, the only and main drawback of this unit is, that the AUX has no autosense.

 

I’d prefer to use the headphone out to a Playmaker’s line input…..which has line sense.
And then connect a set of e.g. BL8000’s there.
This way you – in addition – you are able to use the AUX of the BS1 for a turntable or maybe even for a small tv!

Even better would be to use an Essence MK2/Core – this way you could  transfer the CD playback (and the sound of an optional vinyl player) to a modern NL/Mozart based setup in the home.

 

If this just is about a simple ‘first time B&O unit’, I’d personally recommend the Beosound 8 instead of the BS1.
This has autosense on the Aux/line-in…..which makes it very handy, if you connect an Airplay/Chromecast/BT device there.
And it should come with its own small remote control.
The BS8 is in my opinion a very underrated unit.
