      Hallo liebe Community,

      Ich habe folgendes Setup:

      Beosound 5 mit Beomaster 5

      ML/MCL Converter für mein Multiroom System

      Almando Multiplay Surround Decoder III

      MCL2A? ( Diesen jedenfalls: )



      Nun habe ich an meinen Beomaster eine Behringer Soundkarte angeschlossen.

      Nun habe ich es hinbekommen, dass in jedem Raum die Quelle A.Aux ansteuerbar ist und auch die Lautstärke steuerbar ist.

      Nur der Raum mit dem MCL2AV macht Probleme. A.Aux wird nicht erkannt und die Lautstärkeregelung ist umgekehrt. Das heißt, dass wenn ich leiser mache wird es lauter und umgekehrt.

      Nun habe ich noch einen von den  oben beschriebenen MCL2A  übrig. Von der Verkabelung im inneren sieht der ja sehr identisch mit dem MCL2AV aus. Nur der MCL2AV hat noch ein Netzteil.

      Kann ich einfach den MCL2AV mit dem MCL2A austauschen?

      Und woher bekommt der MCL2A eigentlich den Strom?

      Hello dear community,

      I have the following setup:

      Beosound 5 with Beomaster 5

      ML/MCL Converter for my multiroom system

      Almando Multiplay Surround Decoder III

      MCL2A? (This one anyway:



      I have a Behringer sound card connected to my Beomaster.

      Now I managed to control the A.Aux source in every room and also the volume.

      Only the room with the MCL2AV causes problems. A.Aux is not recognized and the volume control is reversed. That means if I turn it down it gets louder and vice versa.

      Now I have one of the MCL2A described above left. The internal wiring looks very identical to the MCL2AV. Only the MCL2AV still has a power supply.

      Can I just swap out the MCL2AV with the MCL2A?

      And where does the MCL2A actually get its power from?

        Before I can understand what you want to do (and the setup in general) – and maybe make a suggestion – I’ll have to ask where your MCL2 devices are connected?

        Normally the MCL bus is connected to an old audiomaster e.g. Beomaster 4500/6500….

        The MCL2A does not need any power – it merely provides an extra set of speakers connected to the audiomaster with the option of muting/unmuting and controlling volume and changing sources of the audiomaster.

        Only the 2AV version needs power (and active speakers connected).
        It also has an option to act like a 2A (then without local sources).

          As MM said above. But the MCL2A does indeed get power from the Audiomaster over the MCL cable. Pin 2 (pink) provides 7.5 to 8.5 V.  This is also the extra pin in the left hand speaker connection at the audiomaster.

            Well I should have written:

            “Does not need power from an external powersource”
