  • Re: BeoLab 3 vs HomePod

    [quote user="Sal"] I have read reviews where the "stereo" sound with a pair of Homepods sounds different than "stereo" that we're all used to. Haven't experienced this myself, but I think we all may be comparing apples / oranges; pardon the pun. I still contend that traditional stereo should sound better on a pair of Beolab 3's than two Homepods. [/quote] Is stereo pairing of HomePods available to anyone yet? I thought that Apple stated that this was available

    The only information that I have to go by is the statement on Apple's Homepod page: Create stereo sound with a second HomePod. Put another HomePod in the same room and they automatically detect and balance each other. With advanced beamforming capabilities, a HomePod pair is able to create a wider, more immersive soundstage than a traditional stereo pair. I hope this means that the right channel information will be processed by one speaker and the left channel will be processed by the other.

    [quote user="jimcaj"]To my surprise he said that he thinks Apple should not use the term Stereo, because it’s not, he said. Not in the ‘old’ way of thinking - two speakers right left Stereo hi-fi setup. He phrased it, IIRC, like ‘more sound’ DSP’ed .. as you add more HomePods.[/quote] If you are looking for "true" stereo as it is recorded in the studio, then there are lots of options for that. Even on my main system, two sets of BeoLab 14's

    I received my two Homepods today and hooked one up for now. - I am not an Apple Music subscriber - I do have my iTunes library in iTunes Match - I mainly listen to my music with iTunes Remote on my iPad using Airplay to the speaker(s) I want it. - I have no reason to use Siri to select my music, I gather it would be more frustrating with Japanese words and Japanese names which is now a good portion of my library. But it is fun to ask Siri "What's playing" and hear how Siri handles the

    I completely missed the fact there wasn't a power cord! So is that a Beosound 8 mk II or an early prototype??? Lucky!!! Now I want one.

    So back to the original question: Will HomePod 'kill' BeoPlay? I think that Apple Marketing will not let that happen! It looks like the main purpose of the HomePod is to increase the Apple Music subscriptions. Where B&O targets the BeoPlay speakers to: Apple Users with AirPlay Google Users with Chromecast Everyone else with DLNA TuneIn listeners Spotify listeners Deezer listeners Everyone else with Bluetooth Apple targets the HomePod speakers to: Apple Music subscribers shhh - people

    [quote user="Aussie Michael"]@mark. I think they are released here next week. [/quote] Looks like a two week wait for mine! No rush though, it will only get "exciting" when I can stereo pair them!

    I don't know of any Airplay speakers that has Home Sharing. That is normally on the device that is playing the music and sending it to the Airplay speaker such as the iPhone or iPad. I think there is a lot of information out there from people who are incorrectly interpretting certain statements from Apple, since it is not out of personal experience. I just can't believe that Apple would do that! Edit: Thinking about it more, Home Sharing would be used by Siri to access your local music. Since
