Hi B&Oguys,

I am going to buy Beolab 8000 and Beosound 9000 later this month and I wonder about connectivity.

This will be my first B&O gear of this kind so I have no experience. I learned that there is one powerlink and one cinch on each speaker. Plus there is one AUX on Beosound 9000. Now, I have 3 sources of sound: Beosound 9000 obviously, my Apple Airport Express (3.5 jack out) and my Tv (not B&O, 3.5 jack out).

So my question is, how do I connect these 3 sources to Beolab 8000?

I reckon I can connect Beosound to Beolab's powerlink, Airport to Beosound's AUX input and my TV to Beolab's cinch input, but then I would have to switch the connector in the back of both Beolab speakers to the Line position everytime I would want to watch TV, I am right?


If I am, this is not very practical solution. Is there something I am missing or is there some kind of HUB for this?

Thanks very much and excuse my english.

Look for Almando switches for auto sensing (almando multiplay or stereoplay (?))


Get some sort of Aux Ecpander that needs to be switched manually
