For aesthetic and sonic reasons, I recently bought a pair of Beolab 6000s to use as rear speakers. I use the RCA inputs.

They look and sound just fine.

But the auto on/off system is driving me nuts.

Even with no sound, both speakers turn themselves on and off with an audible Click.

Is there a way to have them always on?

Hi and welcome to the Beoworld forum,

you don’t mention what the source for the speakers iswhere they are connected.

The problem is not the speakers, but (probably) a somewhat noisy output where they are connected - that is a common problem.

With the B&O stuff you normally use the PowerLink connection - the PL cables can provide an on/off signal.

Since your source (probably) delievers too much ‘noice’ to keep the speakers off, when there is no ‘normal’ sound signal, you’ll need an external trigger solution.

There are different solutions there....some DIY.

You can also buy something like this:

Thanks.

Unfortunately, the speakers have the same issue when there is nothing connected.

For my understanding....do you say, rhat the 6000’s click on/off, even with NO cable connected?

In that case they seem to be faulty - I would contact the seller!
