Nkhort:

Thanks for that hint

No problem.

You do need to find a BL1000 or a newer (min SW3.4) Beo4 to get the PC function.  You can find them easily on eBay and probably sell your old Beo4 for a similar amount.

Thank you very much for the advice, I will then buy a newer one, and then try to sell the old one!  Thanks again!

Good afternoon! I sold my old Beo4, and bought a newer one with the PC function. Connections are being made. Please tell me is it possible to somehow connect according to this scheme, so that 4 speakers play?

Yes, you can drive 4 speakers.  If they are BL4000, 60000 or 1s, you can "daisy chain" them on powerlink.  That is, these speakers have both an input and an output so you can run a powerlink cable from the Active to speaker 1, then from speaker 1 to speaker 2, and so forth.  The speakers have a switch to select whether it plays the left or right channel as the powerlink cable carries both channels.  

If you have BL8000 or some other speaker that doesn't have the output PL port, then you need to buy 3 powerlink splitters, and the cable goes from Active to splitter1, the output of splitter1 goes to speaker 1 and splitter 2, the output of splitter 2 goes to speaker 2 and splitter 3, etc.

Obviously, you can mix and match daisy chaining and splitters to meet your requirements (maybe you first split the PL and have one side go to your R speakers and one side go to your L speakers to make your cable run easier.  Again, the PL carries both L and R channels and you need to set the switch on the speaker appropriately regardless of daisy chaining or splitters.

Thank you very much! Yes, I have such an opportunity to connect in the speakers. I thought that through BeoLink Active I would be able to control the speakers so that two speakers would play first, and when I wanted, I could also use BeoLink Active to add two more speakers. So not how it is impossible?

Maybe I misunderstood your question.

If you connect all 4 speakers to the Active, then all 4 will always play. 

If you have 2 speakers connected to the Master (Beosound / BeoVision) and 2 connected to the Active, then you can listen to either 2 (2 at Master, 2 at Active) or all 4.  The Master can play any of its sources, but it cannot play what you have connected to the Active through the PC port.  The Active can play any Master source or the PC source.
