  • Re: Beosound 9000 Aux to RCA pin outs

    Perhaps by comparing it to the graphic here on the site? https://www.beoworld.org/beotech/misc2.htm (Scroll down to the one labeled "Audio Aux Link".) It looks the same as the "Datalink Cable 7/7 pin AV" shown here on the site in: https://www.beoworld.org/beotech/misc1.htm , except Audio Aux uses a shared ground for the data. Yes, not connecting that data pin is a good idea unless you need it. No point carrying data in parallel with a line-level audio run for long distances, even

    [quote user="Geoff Martin"]Research indicates that the carbon footprint of a CD is lower than that of streaming if you've streamed the album more than 27 times[/quote]I am always wary of the assertion, "research shows...". The only citation that I found was just P.R. for a paper, which I cannot find: https://www.musictank.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/EnergyReportPR.pdf That's a dead link, but is where the BBC Future article got its 27-times number, in https://www.bbc

    If nobody comes through, you might ask your dealer if they can still order one. It's part # 3040037, "Red adjustment key"

If you're going to fix something that the utility says doesn't need fixing, it would be good to know if they are right or not. Debugging: If you don't want

  • Re: BeoSound Explore is a total embarrassment for B&O

    [quote user="TWG"]Sonos: rendered all of their older speakers and systems useless with an intentional software update to force customers into buying new stuff.[/quote]Nice try. Yellow journalism ("fake news"), reposting doesn't make it true. What Sonos did was create new speakers that only worked with new software, and left old speakers to stay on a previous -- but fully-featured, and mostly bug-free -- version of software. They did start out bricking devices **IF** you chose

  • Re: BeoSound Explore is a total embarrassment for B&O

    Yeah, but research requires work: the fault is with Business Insider and its ilk, not @TWG or @BeoWillie for believing the falsehood. Karma-wise, Sonos deserves their bad press, because they did indeed (April 2018) completely and intentionally brick their CR100 controllers (from 2005, the "Soviet iPod" overize clickwheel remotes). Sonos made it very hard to avoid that software update and, like Apple iOS, left no way to go back. My Beo4 & BeoLink 1000 of old vintage started glitching

  • Re: BeoSound Explore is a total embarrassment for B&O

    Mea Culpa. In my defense, I did put that term in *both* quotes and parentheses, and after the proper vocab panning "Business Insider"! The "Wired" article @TWG cited was factual, by the way. ...At least, so far as I know... We can't always insert our disclaimers..."Based upon my personal experience updating many Sonos products and some B&O products, and using the Sonos S1 app and the newer (unitary) B&O app under iOS." I'm already long-winded enough!

  • Re: Connecting beosound 9000 to amplifier

    1. Use a Powerlink (round DIN connector) output-to-RCA (cinch) male cable. Get a source switcher box (either manual or audio-triggered) to double up on another amplifier input, don't try to use the Phono input. (It's easy to lower the voltage, but applying the inverse-RIAA equalization for the phono amp to "undo" is a bit of circuitry, not commonly sold as a pre-made consumer audio gadget.) Or if the amplifier is modern, use a TOSlink cable to take the CD digital output instead

  • Re: Passive

    [quote user="Tony70121"]I could just leave the amps on continuously but sure amp will burn out eventually[/quote]My Carver cube amp (M400-t, from the 1980s!) has been turned on most of the time, for years. The passive kit I played with (for BS9000 to drive B&W CM2's) barely got luke warm except when amplifying a signal. Sure, over time heat will kill the components, a board can get brittle and pop a solder joint, but... such time -- even for this amp wedged into a compact, sleek

    Fun nugget for any marketing rant which happens to occur on the podcast: Click on the "Connected Speakers" link at bang-olufsen.com and look at the first movie-let: Balance,... Stage,... and... wait, what's that in the upper left corner of the TV room?!?!
