  • Re: Beolab 50 and Turntables - Is the sound digitised

    To clarify the question of listening to re-issues. These are NOT digitised version of the originals releases. In my posts you will see I named all the studios that re-issue from ORIGINAL master tapes and create ANALOGUE vinyls. These releases are considered equal and with the new SRX vinyl material being used to again produce ANALOGUE vinyl from ANALOGUE masters the noise floor is lowered. https://www.musicmattersjazz.com/the-sound-s/45.htm - Have a read for the doubters out there http://www.bluenote

    [quote user="BEOVOX141"] [quote user="Epsilon20"]It just wanted a chance to experience analogue sound[/quote] Then as said several times, the 50 is NOT your choice! And its NOT about how or where you do digital conversion or what nots! The 50 processes the signal in ways you cannot do in an analog system, and thus the sound will NEVER have the properties of analog sound! Its a bit like asking for the CRT TV experience on an OLED screen, No matter how gorgeous the OLED technology

    MM - I did originally try and get a Beogram Turntable for 3 months looking on ebay, speaking to dealers and private sellers but i there were so many models in various conditions so couldnt decide on which one to get. Plus there was a concern that i would struggle (have to pay an arm and a leg) to get replacement styluses and cartridges for these vintage and/older models. I then went the opposite direction to look at Pro-ject and Rega turntables and they were perfectly good but didnt like any other

    The word "Audiophile" seems to be an emotive word for some as it brings up thoughts of non B&O fans lambasting our tastes in loud speakers. Personally I I would never get a set of speakers that required a rack with amps, pre-amps, power conditioners, mono amp for each left/right speaker as honestly it would look a mess and want speakers that fit into my life not the other way round. And yes you would be continuously trying to balance the Hifi racks if I chose different components from

    Thats a fair question MM but I only went looking for specs to learn about the speakers that stand proudly in my living room. Normally when you buy non B&O speakers accompanied by amps its about the specs your getting for the money. The 50s are a premium speaker but they are sold on the basis of ease of use, musicality, the mechanics of the rising tweeters and design. I actually want to know whats under the hood after paying the asking price. In my case I was going to start a new hobby collecting

    Don't get me wrong the way B&O have balanced the tweeters, power application and design are top notch. BUT the DAC and ADC are quite old and outdated. The 50s Analogue inputs which also include the power link connector uses a Texas Instruments PCM4220 Analogue to Digital converter. The Digital to analogue converter, which I now question what the purpose is since its a digital speaker is the the Burr-Brown 1798 DAC which is a 15 year old DAC. Texas Instruments bought Burr-Brown http://www

    That makes me feel allot better. I did suspect linn”s speakers were active with dsd but I find the products from linn esoteric in the sense they don’t explain allot on their website and they don’t have allot of dealers unlike B&O.

    Yes the 50s are a pure digital speaker and really I do love them. I just always assumed I had an option of playing analogue especially since most dealers have turn tables in the shops. My music up until recntly was 100% digital which I love as I have hi-Rez music streaming subscription up to 24bit 192khz. i simply wanted to play some vinyl. I tempted to move the analogue to digital conversion job to a separate device like the ps audio phono NuWave that would take the vinyl source and samples it via

    I would say Analogue sound is sound that was recorded in analogue and reproduced in analague, This would mainly really apply to old music produced prior to the digital age. The music i want to listen to was recorded in the 50s, 60, 70s and early 80s. I would also consider digital sound to be anything that was sampled from analogue sources like tapes. I dont think theres anything wrong with digital music. I just want to listen to Vinyl. I confirmed with a B&O dealer that indeed the 50s (and newer

  • Beolab 50 and Turntables - Is the sound digitised

    Hi Guys, I've been offered a LINN Sondek LP12 at a great price to use with my Beolab 50s and considering buying it however. The Beolab 50s and more recent speakers as i understand it is a digital speaker and if i were to connect the turntable to the speakers via the phono in (first through a phono stage) the speaker would digitise the sound which takes away the whole reason of getting a Turnable /analogue source. Am i correct in thinking that turntables with B&O systems of recent times 17s
