I have noticed the Beolab 50s sounds rather flat when playing streamed sources even with Deezer (both iDevice and app within TV) where the sound is better when streaming directly from Apple TV music app. The 50s are connected to Avant NG. I have played the same song using the same source through the Beolab 50: and Beolab 5s - have to say the 5s sounded better. 

is this a setting problem that can be fixed?

The beolab 50 sounds a bit harsh before breakin. Took me maybe 100 hours of playing. You must have some setup issues.

Beovision 7-55 MK1 red, Beolab 10 red. Beolab 50, all black. Beolab 17 broken ice. Beolab transmitter. Apple tv4 and apple express 2.

Room compensation not done properly?

I would say the BL5s sound different. 

The ALT lenses distribute sound in a certain way and this effect will be more pronounced in the BL5 over the 50s.

Additionally, the 15inch bass brought a real thump to the 5s, whereas in the BL90s (my reference), the bass is significantly less but much more defined and structured. 

Takes some getting used to and some reall consideration in setup, but with the 90s (and I assume with the 50s) a far more natural sound full of image, depth and detail will come with experiment.

Couple more points, 1) IMHO, Beovisions are too dominant in effecting the sound quality of the BL90, you need to optimise with a very good digital source, 2) I don’t like listening to low res Deezer/Spotify (especially via a Beovision). To that effect, the BL5 is probably more forgiving

The beolab 5 is firering the sub against the floor and probebly shaking it all up unless you have concreate floor. It vill also have a deaper inpact ond the rest of the room structure. Beolab 50 and 90 have active room compensation and less impact.

The beolab 9 and 20 have the same difference.

The old speakers feels like the play louder because of that.
