Hello all

Well I just bought some RL45.2 speakers on eBay to recover and use with my V1 to give it some whelly

I have not even heard them and the piers that be at home have already said those ugly things can go.

Oh dear, maybe some 3000 or 5000s then.

Has anyone got a picture of some beolab 3000 on a wall next to a V1?

I haven't got a pic, but I can assure you, that it looks kind of weird - two completely different design languages.

When I still had my 3000/5000's I did not even bother to try that out.

Get a couple of BL6000's instead ;-)

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Yeah I think 6000's will more than likely be the best idea or some 4000's on floor stands

Go discrete - CX100's!  They're an awesome little speaker...

Yeah maybe the 100's will be a good idea.

Do you have a picture of the V1 with CX100's next to it?

Then they are future proof I suppose and I can wall mount next to the V1 or Horizon in the bedroom

CX100 is passive speakers. How and why do you need speakers to your V1? Maybe the white Beolab 12? Or is it a black tv?

It's the black or grey TV

I just find the V1 speakers gutless, it's alright for watching TV but any music playing and it sounds awful with no bass

Okey so just add a subwoofer :) beolab 11 is probably suitable for it. Or make everything shake with a beolab 2! Or go cheaper and buy a mainstream subwoofer that goes into standby when no signal is there. There are adapter cables and you can hide it behind something. That would be my recommendation.

I heard one with just a BL11 added. Sounded pretty good for TV and music.

I tired the 11 on loan and it didn't really help. Maybe I need a new TV like a Horizon to replace the V1 altogether once it's a little more stable

There's nothing else for it. You need a pair of BL90s.

Why not BL3000/4500/5000 ???

Those are very good sounding speakers and probably one of most beautiful B&O ever made.

This pic is not V1 but BV7-40 with BL4500 but maybe it can help you to decide. I can warmly recomend them!

Basicly the same audio engine working in both.

So you would not benefit from that.

They look great wit the 7-40 perhaps they will be the right choice.

Does the display work with the 7?

Someone said the new avant works with the Penta displays

I am sure they would look great with V1 too!

Yes, the display works. Of course you need Powerlink MKII cables to make this work..

The sound off these speakers is amazing. So much sound and a good range

Feels really warm.
