      It is not the starting sound LEVEL, but the sound QUALITY that seems have to been improved.

      Overall: I still like the system

      In addition the BeoSound 9000 as a stereo system for my BeoLab 9 is well integrated and also controlled by my BeoRemote 1.

        Am I right?

        After the last software update the sound seems to have improved (Life TV (Satellite), B&O Radio).

        Sound of Bluray and Apple TV was always ok.

            Dear 9Lee, for about 15 years I am a member in this forum.

            Many thanks for the great support I got by many members, for great entertainment in the Wednesday group, for the prize draws (with my Christmas present in 2017: BeoSound 5!) and for the Beoworld tour to Struer in 2012.

            Sorry that I am not the guy to take over.

            But I hope that this forum will prevail the next decades.

            And I hope to see some members in real life again, for example maybe in August near Deal where I am going to watch the Recumbent Bicycle World Championship in Betteshanger Park. It doesn’t look too far away from Eastbourne.

            At last again: Great thank you!

              Merry Christmas to all!

              Here with Udo Lindenberg:
              Last night at a quarter to four
              I had an apparition
              Suddenly an angel stood at the door
              and asked me for my opinion

               

              IMG_2040 Kopie

              He was pale as a sheet with a white robe
              and he raised his shimmering silver hand
              and he said: Good day, you have been chosen
              The world needs a new Messiah
              And then he shaved my head
              and said: Your name is no longer Udo
              your name is now Jeremiah

              Then he asked if I would agree
              and I said: Yes, that would be okay
              At first I didn’t think it was so cheerful
              with the bald head and all that
              but then I said: Yes, I’ll go like this
              The ceremony went pretty quickly
              because he had to leave again straight away
              but then a wing got stuck
              and he was desperate:
              Jeremias, what am I going to do now?

              Then it worked out with the take-off after all
              and I was alone again
              and only then did I realize
              what had happened
              and a tremor went through my legs
              and now I’m standing here
              and my name is Jeremias
              I don’t know exactly what you do there either
              but somehow, of course, somehow
              we’ll manage
              there was one before
              who did that too

              Hallelujah, hallelujah!

              May this one, whom Udo Lindenberg mentions in the third verse, still contribute to a peaceful union in the one humanity. Belonging to a particular association is absolutely not necessary for this.

              Text: Udo Lindenberg
              Photo: A door in my appartment. I discovered the angel just a few days ago.

              Here the text by Udo Lindenberg in German

              Letzte Nacht um viertel vor vier
              da hatte ich eine Erscheinung
              Plötzlich stand ein Engel in der Tür
              und fragte mich nach meiner MeinungEr war kreidebleich mit ‘nem weißen Gewand
              und er hob seine silbrig schimmernde Hand
              und er sagt: Guten Tag, du bist auserkoren
              die Welt braucht einen neuen Messias
              Und dann hat er mir noch den Kopf geschoren
              und gesagt: Du heißt jetzt nicht mehr Udo
              du heißt jetzt Jeremias

              Dann hat er noch gefragt, ob ich einverstanden wär’
              und ich sagte: Ja, das wär’ ganz okay so
              Erst fand ich’s nicht so heiter
              mit der Glatze und so weiter
              aber dann hab’ ich gesagt: Ja ich geh’ so
              Mit dem Zeremoniell ging es ziemlich schnell
              denn er mußte auch gleich wieder los
              doch dann klemmte ein Flügel
              und er ganz verzweifelt:
              Jeremias, was mach’ ich jetzt bloß?

              Dann hat’s mit dem Abflug ja doch noch geklappt
              und ich war wieder alleine
              und dann wurd’ mir erst klar
              was geschehen war
              und ein Zittern ging mir durch die Beine
              und nun steh’ ich hier
              und ich heiße Jeremias
              ich weiß auch noch nicht so genau, was man da macht
              aber irgendwie, na klar, irgendwie
              krieg’n wir das schon hin
              da gab’s doch schon mal einen
              der hat das auch gebrachtHalleluja, Halleluja!

                    To be sure: The price tag of 5,000 € will be for one speaker?

                        Sorry for the multiple posts, but this topic got me to do some thinking! What if the somewhat affordable Theatre was a problem for B&O. Like many people who already have B&O speakers and wanted an update to the Beosystem 4, the Theatre was a dream come true, albeit we had to stretch our budget for it quite a bit.

                        A dream came true, for me too, as i own the right spekers for a surround system.

                        But the price increase will be a nightmare coming true for some who just wanted to wait a little bit to see the experiences of us early adopters.

                        All in all I prefer a brand for people with exquisite taste to a brand for people with extraordinary high income.

                          Before you visit the store, be warned. Unless you get there by bicycle your purse will be lighter and your car heavier. 😇

                            Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.” (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.”

                                          It even happens when the PUC-cable is loose (happened with my BluRay player). I hope for a solution (my dealer too).

                                            First: Thanks to the moderation team!!!

                                            Up to now I won three times:

                                            1. Cool Brands 2011/2012: Nice reading including my BV 8 (now my sister’s)
                                            2. BeoSound 5: What a nice Christmas present!
                                            3. Struer trip 2012!!!

                                            The third was the most important experience for me worth quite a bit more than 30 £ a year.

                                            My recommendation: Prize draw only if the team does not have to invest its own money. More opportunities of meeting in real life (Annual meeting in Struer? Local meetings? Meetings at certain venues with B&O like IFA, CES (for me a little bit too far from home, as Peter Parker would say)).

                                            PS: This forum helped me much to make the right decisions concerning buying B&O items, avoiding disappointments.
