Hello all

I have a pair of BL5 that have sounded great for many years. One experienced a problem of making crackling noises even when not connected to any source. A replacement of the chassis was performed and it has been flawless since.

Now the other speaker is making the same noises. My local B&O authorised repairer however has said that chassis availability is now taking a very long time to be delivered. He has several customers who have been waiting three months so far and still no chassis from B&O.

Is anyone else experiencing these issues? Is it just an Australian problem?

Hope to hear from you :)

Kind regards

As I understand it there is a difference in availability based on what version of Beolab 5 you have. Mk1 should be running low, while mk2 should still be fine for availability. But maybe that has changed?
Do your Beolab 5 have a pincode? If not they are mk1.

Beovision Eclipse gen2 (GX) w/ floorstand, Beolab 14.2, 4 speaker Shape and ATV4/Chromecast.
