      Having both a Beogram and now the Beotooth 5500 from Pilatomic which both are controllable via datalink I was wondering if it was possible to have 2 external sources connected to a Beosound Ouverture, or a Beocenter 9300 at the same time?

      The sketch below is jus to show the concept

      I have tested it with a Beogram CD 4500 and Beocord 4500 connected via an Y cable with only ground and datalink, and the control functionality seems to work which I was also expecting as both the BS Ouverture and the BC9300 sends Tape and CD/phono commands to the AUX connection (Tape2/phono connection on the BC9300).

      What I am in doubt of if it is a good idea to connect the sound outputs from two sources to each other? Could I potentially damage something? Being datalink controlled none of the devices will play at the same time, but the sound could still travel from one unit to another…

      I have not seen any official setup schematics from B&O, and I guess the official AUX Y-cable was intended for other purposes.

      Anyone know something please let me know

      Thanks in advance

        Might have found a little info regarding this. According to Soundsheavenly’s product page regarding an AUX Y splitter https://soundsheavenly.com/bang-olufsen/11-7-pin-aux-splitter-dual-aux-tape-input-sockets.html

        mains hum can be introduces if two mains powered sources are used.

        Any thoughts are welcome
