      There is no problem to use the Lyngdorf with Beolab 5, I did it many years, it is absolutely transforming the sound coming out from the Beolab 5 after running the RoomPerfect setup, it is really night and day. As long as you don’t use the Speakers output, you only use the PREAMP part of the Lyngdorf.

      I don’t have experience connecting them by line in, possibly you will be able to control the volume with the Lyngdorf and power them on. Give it a try and you will see, don’t forget to set the Lyngdorf not full range and start with volume at -50.

      But it would really be a pity to not use the full path in digital and use the BL5 internal DAC that is truly excellent. But you will need a Beo4, that’s for sure.

        Think I pretty much said that…..

        “Do not send an Amplified signal as this will damage the BL5s. IIRC 2V is the max analogue voltage.

        If there is a non-DAC coax output or line level it should be OK but please please confir with BnO”

          Thanks for the replies!

          I will connect the BL5 from RCA line out (not speaker connections!) with variable level and not set to full range (max volume). Will give it all a try and let you know of  the results.

          Question 1: is there a way to factory reset the BL5’s, i.e., neutralize prior room/bass adaptions? Would prefer to use only the Lyngdorf’s RoomPerfect instead based on a neutral BL5.

          Question 2: is it possible to make adaptions to the 5v trigger signal from the Lyngdorf to become 2v (B&O standard(?)) to activate the BL5’s when starting up the Lyngdorf, and thereby avoid the necessary use of a Beo4 remote?

           

          Thank you again!
