  • Beogram 3000 (59xx)?

    I was out of the B&O market for many years (decades, actually), so my product knowledge can be pretty thin, alas. That said, I've been searching the used market for a Beogram 9500 to mate with my BC 9500 & Beo4. But no joy. I guess that few were sold in the U.S. I've now seen a local ad for a Beogram 3000, allegedly in pretty good shape (some scratches to the aluminum), including MMC4. From what I can see in photos, it's a close cosmetic cousin to the BG 9500...? What are your

  • Attyca 2?

    Does anyone have the dimensions of an Attyca 2? In particular, the length and depth of the long piece? A local seller is offering an Attyca 2. I'm tempted. I might place a BS 9500 on the long piece, as well as headphones and some accessories, and a turntable (currently a BG 3404) on the shorter piece...and hopefully hide the cables. If it all fits. Bonus points: what the 'going rate' for a top condition Attyca 2? I've never seen comparable units for sale around me. EDIT: I just saw

  • Re: Would You Recommend H9i Headphones?

    Just a few weeks ago I splurged on H9i. So far, very good experience, but that's not a lot of time to gauge things. I took them with me on a cross-continent flight and appreciated (!) the ANC. I've thrown them 'naked' into my backpack and carried on flights, through airports, hotels, etc. No issues. YMMV. OTOH, I've owned a pair of H7s for maybe two years now, and in those same few weeks of H9i ownership, the H7's Bluetooth connectivity has simply given up. They can't

  • Re: Bang & Olufsen announces preliminary financial results for the...

    My earlier question about the extent of Shape sales follows Jeff's question about the extent of Edge sales. B&O is now a company that makes a) expensive television sets for a niche market; b) very expensive high-end speakers and speaker-systems; c) moderately expensive headphones, earphones, and single-point speaker systems. 'C' above seems to be doing well, and may be keeping the company in positive cash-flow status. 'A' above is well-debated in this thread and many others

  • Re: New B&O TV BeoVison Harmony

    Not a fan of lamellas - at all - but I’m getting converted by this bold design. It’s especially appealing when wall mounted, though that raises questions. Where is the location of the motion mechanism? When wall mounted, does the screen remain fixed on the ‘z’ axis? Or does it rise/lower as it does when floor standing? If the latter, how high does it move? What is the effect on sight line when the set is raised by, say, 10 to 12 inches? To be continued, for certain.

  • Beosound Shape - what do you think now?

    The Shape fascinates me, probably more than any other current B&O speaker/system. It's been a couple of years, I think, since its introduction; time enough for evaluations to mature. Those of you who have purchased: what do you think of your system now? What do you think of the sound quality? Do you miss the 2-channels, 2-speakers sound of traditional stereo? Would you purchase the Shape again?

  • Re: B&O would listen to potential buyer of company

    Apple’s been public about t heir acquisition strategy for quite some time. They acquire small-to-medium firms with talented people who can contribute to Apple’s product goals; and/or have intellectual property that can contribute to Apple’s product goals. See: Intel’s modem division. Beats was acquired for the streaming and curation technologies, and for Jimmy Iovine. They don’t acquire things they can make or develop by themselves (pretty much any product). And they

  • Re: Cabled sound just on one ear - Beoplay H9i

    Jan, I have the 9i's and don't have that problem. Maybe try the simple thing first. Swap out the 3.5mm cable. Sometimes the machining on cable termination prevents the jack from seating all the way. You'll get a right or left channel signal only if that's the case.

  • Re: Apple TV Question

    Re: Pass though on earlier generation Apple TV. “Apple TV includes a built-in decoder for Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital audio. This means that the Apple TV is able to decode Dolby audio rather than simply pass the compressed bitstream to another device (such as an audio/video receiver [AVR] or a sound bar). Decoding the audio inside of the Apple TV enables Apple to support several features such as mixing of other sounds from the system, Siri ® voice input, and so on.” https

  • Re: A9 MK4 vs. 2 BS2 in Stereo via Google Home Groups

    Jaffray, re: your 2XA9s. Cool idea. I assume the connection is wired to/from l & r channels on your TV, yes? What cable do you use? Have you tried to group the two together as a wireless stereo pair? I understand that Apple now allows this for, e.g., HomePod pairs, using AirPlay 2.
