  • Re: Beolab vs Dac

    Update: HDMI ARC and toslink also works. Hall streamer automatically switches input source. Volume control via TV remote works. Very pleased with the Hall Wifi Streamer!

    So the Hall Wifi Streamer has arrived, and it works like a charm. Y-splitter powerlink cable from Hall Streamer to a pair of Beolab 6000s. Setup was easy. Airplay 2 works flawlessly, also in multiroom/sync with other Airplay speakers. Only thing I haven't tested yet is TV sound input via hdmi arc and switching between TV and music, I assume it will work. I am changing the bass driver rubbers first, and changing the speaker covers from black to white.

    Nevermind, I am getting the Y splitter. (I was worried if maybe a daisy chain would send the 5V trigger signal from Hall streamer and wake up the 1st speaker, but that the 5V trigger signal would not be forwarded to the 2nd speaker.)

    Thanks again! I was wondering if daisy chain would work with non-B&O equipment, especially if the 5V wake up signal would follow to the 2nd speaker. But the TV is (and the Hall Streamer will be) between the speakers, so Y splitter is ideal.

    I should get the RJ45 - Powerlink Y Splitter, correct? https://www.hallaudio.com/en/produkt/traadloes-streaming/hall-wifi-streamer/

    Thanks! Looks like Hall is the easiest setup, by far, yes. Hope it has a good dac …

  • Solved: Old Beolabs with new DAC/streamer

    I am new to the Beolabs, so might be a stupid question, sorry. I am used to an airport express/tv -> digital outs -> dac -> amp -> speakers setup. I am getting a pair of Beolab 6000s now. I assume there must be a dac built into the active speakers? How good is it? Is there any point using a standalone dac? Or beosound core, hall wifi streamer? My current dac has variable line output (rca) and can be connected to active speakers. But it doesn't have the 2.5-5V power signal to turn

  • Re: Airplay with old speakers?

    Ok, B&O website only says «Apple Airplay» in tech specs, usually they specify that it’s version 2 in tech specs (they do in other products), so I got confused about that.

  • Airplay with old speakers?

    I'd like to buy a used pair of stereo speakers (beolab 17, 4000, 6000, 8000 etc), but I want to check if the setup I am thinking of is doable: I need a "thing" that I can stream to via Airplay 2 and that also has a digital input, so I can send the TV sound to it. This "thing" will then send the signals to the speakers (via RJ45 I guess). (If it has 2 digital inputs, I can use one for TV sound and the other for Airport Express, so a built-in streamer (Airplay 2 etc) would then

  • Re: How much weight can the SC 17 cabinet take?

    Thanks. I would guess B&O would leave some margin of error ... so if the cabinet is made to take 13 kg + 10 kg or so, guaranteed, the real max. weight it can take would be quite a bit more, I'm thinking. PS: You burned it?!
