  • Are your kids unimpressed?

    I too have cobbled together a system that can work in any room, but most importantly, incorporates systems from today’s product lines, going all the way back to the 70s as well. They don’t get the allure, nor are impressed with any of it. However, when they grow up, and begin shopping for their own equipment, trying to configure their own setups, and upon a visit back to my home, that’s when it’s going to hit them. One day, they will aspire to something better, whatever that might be, but the price

  • 4K video options?

    I have found the simplest solution is just an AV receiver. Almost all have all the wireless streaming for music, connectivity to your smart phone, multiple sources, all with one simple HDMI connection to the tv. Proper Dolby or DTS surround decoding, built is high quality DACs. For video, they all have full 4K and HDRI throughput. One box, one TV, one remote, multiple sources. Multi-room capability. All it needs to have is preouts. Yamaha, Denon, Marantz, Pioneer, all make exactly what you need.

  • Beosound 9000 connection to Beomaster 8000?

    Iv trued searching, but I can’t seem to find any solutions of connecting a Beosound 9000 CD player, to a Beomaster 8000 amp. The Beosound has a digital and Powerlink out. Maybe a digital to RCA converter? I believe the Beomaster 8000 has RCA in. Or is there a powerlink to Din cable?

  • Re: 4K video options?

    One thing to be aware of is lip sync issues and audio delays when adding toslink/spdif converters, HDMI audio splitters, or multiple “boxes”. In some instances, the lip sync can’t be fixed, even after adjusting the delay in the advanced settings. Just keep an eye out as you configure... research audio delay issues with a particular chain you light be considering... that’s the great thing about online forums 👍

  • Re: My rather unusual B&O setup

    Hey Politician, quick question... how come you didn’t go with a Beogram 8002 with a MMC1? Secondly wouldn’t it be better to run your BL90 and BL50 without the BL10 fir movie and TV viewing? 70 to 80% of audio normally comes from just the center speakers while watching regular movies. That’s such a waste of the BL90s. What a beautiful setup. Absolutely the best of B&O... love thx mix of vintage!

  • Preamp for Beolabs

    I was looking for a solution as well, but the offerings from B&O right now for a source are pretty lame, except for the Beovosions, which I think are superb. I started off with the WXC-50, and I loved it so much, that I went for the CX-A5100. I have a full Beolab 9.2.2 channel setup, and it’s great. All Beolabs are running triggered cables. I have however been thinking about the Beosound Moment. Have you considered that? Personally, I’m currently loving the idea of the Moment...

  • Re: beo-newbie amazement!

    I first listened to a set of B&O speakers and amp 20 years ago, and I can remember the experience; simply put, I could hear instruments I hadn’t ever heard in songs I had listened to in many different situations and players. Many years later, I have moved from the old Beovox speakers from the 70s and 80s, and now have a few sets of speakers with IcePowred built in amplification, and the experience has not disappointed. Just last weekend, I went back and listened to my vintage Beovox speakers

  • Re: Dolby Digital with non-B&O television: how?

    [quote user="trackbeo"] If your first choice ends up being an LG OLED, bear in mind that Dolby Digital from the optical output has an unacceptable delay. Stick with HDMI ARC or as recommended above, a receiver/pre-pro that splits off the HDMI audio in the first place, before passing on the video to the screen. (Something about the translation from HDMI multichannel input to TOSlink output takes LG awhile. PCM stereo via HDMI to optical works just fine.) [/quote] I second this. Even with

  • Re: Loewe + B & O cabling help

    [quote user="James1980"] I wanted to avoid another ‘box’ if possible. Part of the reason for going to Loewe was to appease the wife that the amp was disappearing! [/quote] Ah, gotcha. The Almando box is the simplest solution Iv seen so far as dual source to B&O speakers. As for cables, what does the Loewe have? RCA, RJ45, or 8-pin Din?

  • Re: Loewe + B & O cabling help

    I just responded to a thread similar to this. You can get a new or good second hand top-end home theatre pre-amp. This will drive all your B&O speakers with the latest and greatest Dolby, DTS etc, and also have multiple sources selectable. Yamaha, Pioneer, Marantz, Denon are all good choices. I have the Yamaha CX-A5100. Most good home theater pre-amps have a "Direct" mode, which is specifically for playing 2 channel music with no coloration to the sound, in your case, the Beosound Moment
