        I received an email from my dealer in the USA offering 90s, 50s, 28s, and 8s at 10% off.

          Thanks for the detailed comments.  I have a Theatre with 28s and 9s as the rears.  Was going to trade the 9s in on 8s. But after disconnecting them and installing 4000s temporarily I missed the bass of the 9s.  Decided to keep them. I have the 9s set as subwoofers in the Theatre when listening to music on the 28s.

          Still contemplating a pair of 8s to add to the system.

          How would you compare a pair of 8s for music to a pair of 28s?

            Thanks for the comments about the the 8s, 28s and Theatre.   I have a pair of 8s ordered to be used as rears with my Theatre and 28.  Will be replacing the 9s I am currently using as rears.   I want the added height of the 8s and to match the 28s visually.  Never thought of moving the 28s to the rear.   Do plan to keep them in the front as I like the way they look and am guessing I will prefer them for music as opposed to the 8s.

              I believe so.  I have Beolab 9s connected to R1s and was able to select 9s in the menu.  However, I am not sure if it has been fixed in just the Beta releases or if the regular releases have it now also.

                The pairing should remain wherever you move the BR1 but that does not mean it will still be connected.  If you move the BR1 too far away it will not work. However, once you return it to the same room, or general area where it has worked before, the pairing will remain and it will work again. By way of example, I have a pair of Emerges in my office at work. I have a BR1 paired with them. A coworker asked about the BR1.  I took it with me to a connected building and a different floor.  That was much too far away for it to connect to and control the Emerges.  But upon returning the BR1 to my office, the Bluetooth pairing was intact and I could control the Emerges. In my house I have three BR1s. I keep one in each of three different rooms.  If I take one to another room, that will get it out of range and it will not control the paired products until I return it to the room, in range.  The Halo connects by Wi-Fi so it can control B and O products on the same network regardless of distance.
                To pair using the app (iOS in my case): From the Home Screen touch the person icon (that is what it looks like to me) at the top right….then touch settings…then Products….then select your Emerge…..the next step might be slightly different as my Emerges are at work so I am looking at my Theatre, BL28s, and M5 and they are slightly different…once you are on your Emerge’s page….there should be threes dots at the top right….touch those….one of the options will be Beoremote …select that…if your BR1 is already paired it will show it. You can touch on it and will get options for remotes list and unpair.  As you are having problems you might want to unpair. Also on the Beoremote page you will see and option to pair a new Beoremote….touch it and then touch the Pair Remote option that will appear.  Also, go through the settings on the BR1 to select open for pairing. Settings….Pairing….Pair….open for Pairing.

                  Bluetooth is the correct and only way to pair the BR1. But, you can pair it by Bluetooth using the app.  It will not list the BR1 but rather will give you an option to pair a new remote in the settings menu for the Emerge.

                    It should not lose the pairing.  It should stay paired no matter where you move it to.

                      I have the same issue periodically with my hard wired 28s and Theatre.

                        That works.  Thanks!

                          I use a BR1 paired with a pair of Emerges.

                            I have a pair and am very happy with them, but have no experience with a Level or BS2.

                              I see there’s a new app update today that adds headphone support for the Theatre and manual speaker setup. It looks like there is now a place to add third-party speakers when adding speakers. Also, there are two new speaker roles “left downmix” and “right downmix” with this annoying scrolling list at the bottom of that page that covers up part of the page.I can’t seem to figure out what those two new speaker roles are for. Has anyone noticed any other differences?

                              Just installed it. Where do you see the option to add third party speakers?

                                I had both 20s and 9s at the same time. I traded in the 20s and still have the 9s. Also prefer the 9s over 20s.

                                  Need to add 6000s and then 1s to the beginning of the list.  Also a couple pairs of 4000s and a pair of 12-3s as rears and/or link rooms.

                                    Not the exact answer you are looking for but here is my experience.  I had Beolab 9s.  Wanted 5s. Dealer brought a pair to my house and let me try them out for a couple weeks. I heard a difference, but not necessarily an improvement.  Even with the great deal I was offered, I sent them back. I then got 20s, that were traded for 50s, and then replaced the 50s with 28s.  I absolutely love the 28s.

                                      Thanks!  Although it would be nice if pressing CD on the BR1 would start the CD through the Theatre, as it does with my V1 and Essence.   Sounds like to get the same direct functionality with the Theatre as the V1 and Essence have, a BLI is needed. I can’t remember the last time I listened to a CD, but do like having the option, and a little B and O magic having the old integrated with new.

                                        Sounds like your system is working the same as mine.  Perhaps the Theatre does not directly support the converter.

                                          If I start a CD playing through my Essence, I can then join the Theatre using my Halo and get the CD to play through the Theatre.

                                            Curiosity got to me. I reconnected my 3000.  CDs play from it through my Beoplay V1 via the converter, but I can not find a way to get it to work with the Theatre, yet.
