  • Re: Will HomePod 'kill' BeoPlay?

    [quote user="Roger"]$279 to replace the power cord? To remove it is a straight pull: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjxILSOfJmQ[/quote] I've read that $279 is the standard out-of-warranty repair cost. If the powercord gets damaged the cost is $39 to replace it, upon assessment on how it got damaged. I guess if Apple believes the way it got damaged doesn't fall within its criteria to be a $39 repair, that will open up a market for 3rd party power cables that can easily be replaced

    [quote user="Sandyb"] for those who value the "smarts" of these speakers[/quote] And for people like me who only use Siri to hear her mangle Japanese names and words. "Hey Siri what's playing?" Actually she doesn''t do too bad, but to hear her say "Kyary Pamyu Pamyu"...

    [quote user="Sandyb"]And the review below is much more lukewarm, and is a proper test from an audio sensitive guy. [/quote] I've read a lot of love for the HomePod and a lot of hate especially in comments. I wonder how much of ones opinion is what you wanted to walk away with initially. It's not suprising that one $350 speaker will have some limitations that some people will focus intently on, but what's it going to be like when you can stereo pair them. And... if Apple decides

  • 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

  • Re: Beosound 8 Problem... [:P]

    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.
