If they work they sound absolutely fab.

but.....

quite often I have one of these two problems (or even both)

1) No wifi connection, so no way of controlling it via the app. where as my home wifi network is stable.

2) No sound/activity at all. They are connected through a high end RCA cable to my Marantz SR8012 receiver.

and it drives me crazy up to the level as being ready to sell them off. Despitethe great sound.

any thoughts, help?

thanks

Peter

Thanks allot Michael, Have you tested these on the USB port of the 50's? I dont really fancy putting an ugly cable from my router to the 50s.

Unfortunately not, I don’t have those speakers myself. I have Beolab 20s. Beolab 50 would be nice but a bit to expensive and from what I gather not really well designed :/.

I think they would work but I can’t say for sure. I hope so :)

I forgot that they are only 300 mbit but I guess the network connection will be used mainly for remote control of them and not for any heavy data transfer?

300 mb is still sufficient for most streaming so I don’t think it should affect them in a bad way.

So I was finally home again to test the wired setup.

I plugged in a network cable and one speaker (the master) started to ply straight away.
So I did a factory reset in the 50's and now everything is working fine again.

I did a room compensation calibration with the mic and created a few presets. (Movies and Hi-Fi)
Now let's hope all stays fine with the wired connection.

If anything does go wrong again I will report back, so no news is good news!

Thanks for all your help and support.

Hi, My problem with my Beolab 50 is that they sometimes randomly looses contact between slave and Master speaker (fast orange flashing light in Master-speaker).

I got my speakers replaced a couple of weeks ago but last night it did happen again with the new speakers.

I wonder how many Beolab 50-owners who really suffers from this unstable connection between Master and slave-speaker. I hope that as many as possible is complaining to B&O Support so they finaly will fix this issue. Otherwise it is a fantastic speaker.

I thought it was a very well reasoned and thought out comment. 😉

Do you happen to have the Eclipse in the setup, maybe?

If yes, this might help:

Hi MM,

I dont think that my problem with BL50 has to do with the Eclipse (Master looses connection with Slave).

I have also have an discussion with Mikipedi4 regarding this BL50 issue.

I use Powerlink to my BL50 and hardwired both Eclipse and Bl50 with Ethernetcable. I avoid Wifi as much as I can!.

But Thanks anyway.

Have a nice weekend!
