Hello B&O Lovers,

I have the following setup and would very much appreciate any help setting up the BS3 to achieve 7.1 surround;

Sub is Beolab 19

Center speaker is 7-4

Front L & R are Beolab 6000

Surround R and L are Beolab 8000

Back L & R are Beolab 4000

what is the ideal set up for surround sound in the BS3 with the above speakers.

Thanks so much

Good morning/afternoon BEOVOX141,

The BS3 Type I have is 7716; so what are the cool tricks???

Thank you again for any feedback you might extend.

If you look at the connectors at the back side you will notice a second output. Display two. If you enable this output in the connections menu you can connect a second screen. Switching between the two of them is done pressing FORMAT 0. Complete with curtains closing on one screen and opening up on the other.

You are in luck since your BS3 has HDMI OUTPUTS, and they both carry sound as well, so you could connect a TV elsewhere using a just a HDMI cable.

In this particular setup (My Daughters room) she can move the TV picture to her computer monitor when doing homework. In this setup there is a master link to an Ouverture running the red BL4s. Sound can the be switched from the TV 5.1 set to 2.0 Overture and vise versa with the sources of the Ouverture.

I like to use 4 speakers mode for audio on my BS3. Have you tried it?

Select "speaker" on your remote and then press the number 4.

You can try other modes as well, from 1 to 5.

As written on the previous page, I refer to SPEAKER 4 as "POWER" mode  Smile

Good morning Dante and BEOVOX141,

You are both correct; Speaker 4 is "POWER", Love it!

Listened to Miles Davis Doo Bop and it was awesome.

Thanks a million

Not necessarily, but there is a lot more punch! 

The funny thing is no matter where you are in the room you still get the stereo effect. Going mono on all four speakers proves that point!

Guess that makes me a "sweet spot" denier,-  or perhaps a "mono" slayer? Big Smile
