  • BL 6000 Rubber Surrounds replacement: questions

    I know that several of you have replaced the rubber ring that surrounds the woofer on your Beolab 6000s. I'm about to do the same. I purchased my replacement surrounds from AudioFriends. I've reviewed several of the YouTube videos on the topic, but I have two questions, as well as an open-ended request for any tips or learnings from your experiences. 1. I grabbed my trusty Phillips screwdriver to remove the two offending woofers from the speaker, but was immediately foiled by what appear

  • Re: Beolab 5 vs 50 vs 90?

    [quote user="MaxH"] I can't see the Quartet, Morph the Cat, Requiem or Limit the Love on the playlist. [/quote] Hi Max: you should be able to see all 4 tracks in the BL 90 list. The 4th track is actually ‘Limit To Your Love.’

  • Re: Web based muic servcies on Mac to Beolab?

    Primephonic doesn't have an app that runs on your MacBook in the study, but Primephonic does have a web player that will run in your web browser of choice on that Mac. So, then, the task is to remotely control the Mac itself. There are several software alternatives that leverage the VNC protocol to allow your iOS device to control your Mac, including your web browser. Here's a review of one such: https://thesweetsetup.com/apps/the-best-remote-access-solution-for-mac-and-ios/ You can search

  • Step-up converter recommendations?

    Anyone in North America have recommendation for a reliable step-up converter? I found this manufacturer's line on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06X1FY3HV/?coliid=I3TY47OYAOBBLR&colid=248XBDOCKIZCH&psc=0. These aren't quite as ugly as others. Any better recommendations? Given the frustrating lack of legacy B&O gear for sale in the U.S., I may just have to turn to Europe to acquire some specific pieces. In that case, I'll need the transformer, or some means of running on

  • Re: The idea of SHAPE as surround speaker

    FWIW: If I was going to purchase and use Shape for rear-channel(s) speakers, I'd probably purchase another set of AudioEngine's wireless adapters. For several years, I've used one of their products (1/transmitter, 2/receivers ) to provide rear L&R to my BL6000s. A little finicky, but it's worked well. Disclosure: I haven't seen or priced B&O's Transmitter product.

  • Re: Beosound Shape - what do you think now?

    [quote user="SteveCuz"] Look wise, wow love it and it will fit perfectly with the art I will have in the room and it's already a talking point. [/quote] Looks great, Steve. Let us know what you think of the sound experience when you have the bugs shaken out of your installation. Looking at your design triggered a thought: I assume that, if using the Shape in a 'traditional' stereo l/r sound stage configuration, you'd get a better experience by spreading the design horizontally

  • Re: How to screw in datalink pins?

    Reviving an old thread as I have a similar challenge. I have a BC 9500 and a BG 3000 connected. My BG 3000 lacks the two DataLink pins. Fortunately, I have a spare B&O phono cable with all 7 pins, including the two DL pins that have a tiny cleft/slot in the flat head. So I think I have the parts needed; I just have two unscrew the pins from the spare cable. My question: on my BG 3000, are both pins required? It looks challenging to screw in just one pin; doubly challenging for two? If only one

  • Re: How to screw in datalink pins?

    Thanks for the reply! I'd never have found that diagram on my own. [Lack of] Progress update: unscrewed a single pin from the spare cable. Surprisingly was able to screw it into pin hole 6 on the BG cable. Tested it both via a Beo4 as well as via the glass keyboard of the BC 9500, but alas, no love. It's too dark here now to attempt the second pin; perhaps tomorrow. Thanks again.

  • Re: How to screw in datalink pins?

    [Next day] Success. I screwed in pin 7, and the Data began Linking. I'm unable to say whether the function requires both pins, or if pin 7 alone enables the voltage transfer. For those who face the same issue in the future, maybe try pin 7 first, test it, then pin 6 if required. Thanks again, Guy, for the response.

  • Mainstream review of H9 3rd gen

    Very laudatory review from a tech pub. It does, IMO, raise a question for B&O’s product management: where are the reviews for Edge? Shape? BL20? Still...a gift horse here. https://www.techhive.com/article/3452038/bang-olufsen-beoplay-h9-headphone-review.html
