Well, quiet in terms of actual listening impressions. They’ve mostly been product announcements. I enjoyed your latest video, but I was hoping for something more like the video where you compared the Beolab 18 and Beolab 8000 (without all the traffic noise!) I felt that I got your true feelings about the products and it made me feel safer for just having purchased the Beolab 18s! (I have not received them yet.) I’m sure that the Theatre is going to be an impactful speaker, it would be fun to hear what people think for music and movies. This is a very major purchase for me, the Theatre and Beolab 18s and Beolab 19, I’m hoping it will be everything I am hoping! For me, sitting down and listening to music is my number 1 desire for this new system.
I’m glad to hear that John hasn’t given up on making videos! The supply chain issues are really getting annoying! In truth, it’s your’s and John’s videos that really look forward to watching!
I should add, this is a completely blind purchase for me. I am not able to hear them in the showroom, so these videos are the closest thing I will have for that!

I’ve got a bit of a wait before I get my gold theatre, but I am excited about it! It seems to be everything I hoped it would be and more. I’ve enjoyed people talking about the new B&O products after they’ve been released but there seems to be complete radio silence on the Theatre. The usual YouTube sources are quiet too. I hope that’s not a bad sign.
I am now going to have a similar setup like Severed hand… After ordering my Theater I had to take both of my Beolab 14 subwoofers in for repair for different problems. I received a less than optimistic prognosis for their repair which got me to rethink my layout. After some careful consideration, I decided to buy a pair of Beolab 18’s, and then talked into a Beolab 19. I already have a pair of Beolab 17’s that I will use for the rears. Along with the Theater, I think this will give me a completely different sound environment than I have now. I was wondering how to use the Theater since I will have the 18’s up front and fairly near the Theater. Hearing that there is a LWide and a RWide channel available could prove really interesting! I will have a lot of experimenting to do.
I currently have a 65″ LG C6, but it’s time for a new TV now. I am leaning toward the 65″ LG G2. It’s a huge investment for me. (both the tv and the theater!)

I ordered my gold 55″ Beosound Theater with the oak grill today, a gold Beoremote One and the USB-C to mini-jack adapter. I will table mount it on the entertainment center under the TV so it doesn’t have to be the same size as the TV. The current estimated delivery is mid to late November.
It’s too bad I can’t use my old IR Beoremote One!
The quote I have for the 55″ gold Theater with the oak grill has the grill for $1300. I suppose this will be the price to buy it separately later.
While I am getting the Theater for my main TV, I would be interested in a Mozart Stage.
> What will a Mozart version of the Stage bring you?
Mostly perceived peace of mind.
- There would be a good chance that the new Stage would be upgradable.
- There would also be a good chance that the performance would be tweaked.
- Software upgrades would be the same as the rest of the Mozart platform.
I am also interested in a new version of Core on the Mozart platform.
It looks like you can have 8 wired speakers through 4 powerlink sockets and 8 wireless speakers. I was hoping for more powerlink sockets but I think I can work it out with my two BeoLab 14’s if I scrap the center and subwoofer channels.
Why use USB C for analog in? This doesn’t make any sense to me? They’ve always used the mini plug before…
I’ll keep these options in mind. My first preference is to use the minimum number of cables needed, but if I can’t find a stereo RCA to 9-pin mini din cable then I may have to go this route.
That actually helps! If I can’t get a cable from my dealer maybe I can get one made. It looks like the mini 9-pin dins to make your own cable are a bit hard to find.
I’ve contacted my dealer and haven’t heard back from them yet. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that they still have it available. It’s definately not their standard DIN!
I am very pleased with this 8002 as it has been refurbished and seems to work very well. This will be my second 8002 from eBay. The first was nothing but trouble, and the old B&O repair shop around here (when we had B&O dealers) had it several times for different issues and the fix never lasted! Probably needs a capacitor overhaul.
It’s nice to have a record player again!
