    So mk2 & mk3 do not have data-link on the Aux input as I understand. But how about mk1? I have an ouverture where I can control an beogram 4500 (record player) via remote, also step back & forth via remote. Is that possible on beosound 9000 mk1 while connecting via aux input (and select PHONO)? Anyone knows?

    Sure….that is well known (amongst those in need of datalink).
    In retrospect it is a pity, now that the Beogram/vinyl players have become so popular.

    If you don’t need Masterlink, you could however, use the Phono socket on one of the older Beomasters (3500/4500/6500/7000 etc).

    I think that the early BS9000 may have datalink.  The service manuals on site show datalink present in the Mk1 (Types 2521 to 2530), but not present in the Mk2 and Mk3.  However, B&O service manuals have been known to be wrong in the past.

    I think datalink was dropped from most products as N.RADIO and N.MUSIC compatible products were introduced, such as BS3000/3200.  N.RADIO used the old PHONO IR command.

    The early BS9000s Mk1 were not N.RADIO/N.MUSIC compatible, hence required a SW upgrade.  Perhaps such a SW upgrade disables the datalink capability.

    Interesting….worth investigating!

    Anyone with a MK1 here to test it?

    I bought my first BS9000 while it was introduced to the public. Even this mkI version did not support datalink on the AUX.

    Even my (gen 1) BeoSound 1’s service manual shows the AUX datalink pins connected to its processor.  As I said, there seem to be several errors. (BS3000 service manual likewise)

    I would quite like to control my BG6500 via my BeoSound 1 😀
