    Hi alls,

    Just out of curiosity, can a Beolab 3500 serve as sound bar for a Beovision 7?

    I don’t know if it make sense and quite sure it won’t be pretty but Id like to know if it could work by itself without converter.

    Thanks.

    Hi Matador,

    In theory, yes this could work, as long as you don’t have any other speakers. However, it isn’t ideal and I would suggest that there are much better options such as Beolab 7-1, 7-2 or 7-6 depending on the TV screen size.

    Beolab 3500 is a very poor performer compared to other Beolab speakers of its era, with little bass output and treble that isn’t optimal for TV dialogue. Connection would be via Masterlink, so the speaker would only get a stereo downmix (not true front or centre channels). Control would rely on both the TV and the speaker receiving remote control signals at the same time, so some issues may arise when trying to operate it, change volume, etc.

    Hope this helps!

    Kind regards, Steve.

    if both response to the same remote it will (sometimes) become a mess.

    Example: command next channel will be received twice. So not the next channel, but the channel there after will be activated! Etcetera….

    The way out would be to put one in option 4. But still not the easiest way to control both.
