The Core has IR support now - but in a transition period, a store might have both versions available. The IR support is great news for BL5 owners, too.

How can we tell the difference between the two variants ? I seem to remember it’s not obvious ...

No, I have 2 with IR. the DPL port is used but it still says DPL not IR.

I do have to say it works fine.

The old one became obsolete in mid-May (ie sold out from DK). The new one has the following type no. 3051 (replaces type no. 2797)

I am confused.

Is the older one an IR Core?

And the newer one wasn’t IR but is now?

Thanks,

AM

IR was a feature requested at the very first dealer meeting after the launch, but it took its time before they got around to launching it. 

But just to be clear as mud: the old one did not have IR, the new and current one does have it. It is a very nice device now for owners of the BeoLab 5 as they can use the latest technology to stream and listen to music.

Hi

How does that work when a Beolab 5 needs a CD signal to use the SPDIF input?

Very interesting indeed.

I suppose, that you mean the possibility to connect ‘via digital’?

Could you write a few words about how to connect and control - does a small guide exist?

Normally you will have to use the CD command to open the BL5 for the digital connection.

So....how are the BL5’s activted, when connected to the Core?

Do you have to connect via ‘digital out’ and via PL from the Core as well?

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

I just set up a new Core with Beolab 5's. The speakers power up the Core is activated via the app. As far as I'm aware, no need for the digital out connections to be used in this configuration. 

Sound quality is brilliant via Spotify!!

How is your Core connected to the BL5’s?

The recommended setup is to use the digital end-to-end signal from the Core to the BL5 (via optical-to-coax-converter) and at the same time use the PowerLink connection in parallel to maintain data communications. This setup avoids static noise.

How does the BL5 get to know to use the SPDIF input?
