Edge is not a GVA product so I don’t know how or why Google could ever be involved in setting up or using the product.
As I said in our Discord forum, I’m very curious how they are managing all the processing and multichannel decoding without a Beovision. B&O doesn’t make an AVR currently. Must be some type of third-party solution but… that being the likely case… does it seem a bit disingenuous to showcase a theater like that which requires either a component not available for sale or third-party products to allow for the integration?
That said… amazing looking, overkill in the best way, and I’d love to watch an action movie there. 🙂
Post interior photos! 🙂
Beautiful! Interesting looking! Excited to learn the specs.
Apparently, raising prices and then offering sales more frequently is the new marketing strategy.
Two sales in two months, basically… And not during end-of-year holidays…
Sorry to hear about your misbehaving 28s, Raz, but I hope it gets sorted quickly.
Thank you to everyone! I’m excited for my little prizes! I love this board and am grateful for the friends I’ve made here as well as for all I’ve learned. Thank you!!
Totally off topic and I apologize but I’d love to hear your impression of BL28 vs. BL20…May 24, 2022 at 10:12 am in reply to: Question for Geoff Martin or other very knowledgable people re Beolab 17 #5234
You’re preaching to the choir. As I said, if I stepped outside of B&O, I’d go Bluesound via NAD in a heartbeat. The app is fantastic. It was the easiest thing in the world to use AND is much more featureful than anything B&O has. I am with you on this one.
The TVs are very, very, very expensive. I’ve done the math, too, and it hurts.
Not much more to say, I guess. Value is subjective.
I’m glad you like your 17s so much. I love them. What a fantastic, fantastic speaker. Perhaps you need a BL19 to add to them in your large room?

I found the old thread! Not on Google but by actually searching the Archived Forum. A big job well done to Keith and Lee and other moderators who brought back the forum but also made revisiting the forum before the switchover so easy.May 23, 2022 at 9:16 am in reply to: Question for Geoff Martin or other very knowledgable people re Beolab 17 #5221
On the old site, I began a fairly extensive thread detailing my experience swapping my Core for a Bluesound Node 2i in a BL17 setup. Unfortunately, it is not showing in my Google searches but it was called “A Day With a Bluesound Node 2i”. If you have better search capabilities than I, it may be worth a read.
I was interested in determining if I could hear a difference between CD-quality and higher-rez music and bottom line, I could not tell a difference. I ended up returning the Node 2i to retain the Multiroom functionality of the Core, among a few other minor details that just made it more pleasant for me to stay within the B&O ecosystem. But if one day I buy non-B&O equipment, I would get an NAD M10 or M33 and stay within the Bluesound world without a second guess. It was a fantastic user experience, IMHO.
As for adding a sub, sadly, B&O never made this easy outside a BeoVision TV. There is no way to manage the subwoofer crossover frequency in a 2.1 system, say, consisting of BL17 and BL19 if you’re using a fully wired setup. You’d have to use a third-party product of some type to do this. (I believe the Node 2/2i has a subwoofer out and bass management in the software, BTW.)
Alternatively, if you get a B&O Transmitter 1, you CAN have bass management capabilities. The T1 will crossover automatically at 120Hz. This is not adjustable. But of course, it requires using WISA and not cables.
Hope this helps! I love my BL17 but I use mine in a 12×12′ bedroom currently, so the bass is superb. In a larger room like yours, I’d probably just try to find more full-range speakers rather than deal with using non-B&O equipment if I didn’t have a BV TV or using a Transmitter 1 and WISA.

I can confirm the Core has a setting within which you tell it what BeoLab speakers are connected to it—but I don’t know what this does, precisely.
I, too, tried using a Node 2i with a pair of BL17 but did not notice any change in the sound profile so sadly, I can’t be of much help there. 🙁
I suppose there is the 15% off BeoLabs through April 30th taking place now. That doesn’t seem to me like a significant discount, however. Maybe I’m just out-priced by the new prices!
My understanding is this is somewhat of a consolation prize to North Americans who signed up to purchase the expensive 4000c reboot. B&O canceled all 4000c orders (except one) for the USA. Instead, we can spend more on the 72-22.
Amen! Thank you to Keith, Lee and the team. So glad to have everyone back!
There is also a new Discord app forum we’ve been using in the interim–you all may wish to join that, too.
