Hi all! 

 

Hope I ask this question the right place!

I recently purchased a couple of BeoLab 6000's, and I am so impressed with them. 

 

However, I'm facing an unfortunate situation. I don't have anything to connect them to, other than a Logitech BT adapter, through 2 phono to minijack. 

 

And that works pretty well, besides when I need to connect to them. 

The Logitech BT adapter plays a hysterically loud sound to announce that it's in pairing mode. After that, if I want to remove it from the Bluetooth receiver to bypass that sound, they crackle. And I know you are not supposed to do that to speakers connected via line in, but it's the only option I've got if I want to avoid that loud noise. For a starter, that sound the Logitech adapter plays, is (I guess) played at full volume through the BeoLab 6000, and while that is a horrible DB level to reach, I'm also afraid that it'll damage those beautiful 6000's. 

 

My question is, what are you all doing when connecting BeoLab with Phono? 

Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I really couldn't find any relevant posts for me.

Your problem comes down to this: You need something to work as a preamplifier that will give you volume control and that it will be connected to the input of your Beolabs. As far as I know the Beolab 6000 does not have volume control , thus is set to maximum gain.

That makes sense. However, I can't really find a suitable product, can you recommend any?

Well, that doesn't really matter to me, as long as it's a good and reliable solution. 

 

Mostly, I just need to know which kind of product would work for me. And that's very difficult, because I don't have too much knowledge in this area!

Take a look at the Yamaha WX-C50 for example. It combines Bluetooth and network music streaming and of course it will give you the necessary volume control.

Here is one location to buy,  others offer price down to 80euro,  it comes with a remote control, which also has bass/treble eq, sound level output.

I'm using it for a beomaster 4500, didn't try it on a line in on speaker,  but sure it will.

I use the WXC-50 for exactly that. I have the TV connected via optical and use Spotify Connect and USB (via a memory stick).

Comes with a remote control but I always use the App. Slight issue was that I had to separate the my 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wifi as the WXC-50 only uses 2.4Ghz and it didn't like it if my phone connected to the 5Ghz signal.

Sound quality if really good.

Currently saving up for a Beolab 11 to complement the 6000s (recommended on this forum)

Yes, so many ways of using line in, if you are in doubt if Any of the suggestion are working the way you want it, just  connect a phone with a headphone jack to line in, then you have volume control and music, if thats good, it is up to you,  technisat or yamaha.

Both have volume control, the technisat is cheaper, up to you

Have music and fun

Hi,

why don't you connect the BL6000 to a Beosound unit ? That is afterall how it was intended to be used.

Connect with Powerlink cables.

Connect your Bluetooth receiver to the AUX input of the Beosound of your choice.

You can now control master volume directly on the Beosound or via the world's best remote: Beo4

Beosound 4 is quite cheep second hand.
