      Hi

      Beolab 8000 + beolab 2 good setup or does it need center speaker? one person wacthing tv. I’m quite happy with 2.1, been thinking to update 3.1. For center speaker need to raise tv 4 centimeter or wall mount tv. Any advice in mind?

      Current setup: tv lq 55″, Almando Multiplay Surround Decoder 3, beolab 8000+beolab 2

      In local store there is one beolab 7.1 for sale.

        Although I generally am an advocate for having a center speaker in a video setup………in your case – with one viewer, I think that will be alright………as long as you sit in the sweetspot.

          Get BL 7.1 (or 7.2,better,to fit the screen).I prefer TV wall mounted.Think about two people watching tv…

            Hello,

            There’s nothing wrong with stereo tv, but if you’re thinking of going 3.1 I would recommend a Beolab 7.4 for the centre.
            The 7.1 is a glorious speaker on its own, but might sound a bit muddling with the BL8000s as buddies.

            (BL7.4 is mono, clear, fabulous. BL 7.1 is stereo, musical and ace on it’s own.)

              Hello,

              how do you control the sound volume in your setup? I have the same. LG magic remote does not work for me. TV is LG Oled G2. The soundbar appears on TV, but the almando decoder does change the volume. The Almando app works OK.

                Running a single BL4000 as center speaker with BL 8000s as front l/r.  Had this config forever, and I’m very comfortable with it.

                  Audio going out from tv to almando hdmi cable->hdmi (arc) port. From almando to beolab 8000 + beolab 2, rj45-powerlink

                  Tv audio settings, audio output mode optical/hdmi arc. Output format PCM and SIMPLINK (HDMI ARC) need to be active.

                  To control volume i use magic remote, i’m only use app to control subwoofer. When i turn tv on, almando turn green and beolab 8000 + 2 pop green.
