  • Re: Replace BM5/BS5 with Moment?

    [quote user="tph"] [quote user="Hiort"] If you have a Mac I think you can use Toast for that conversion. [/quote] It can also be done in iTunes directly. Check out this Apple support article . [/quote] This seems to work. By pressing option key, ITunes asks for a new location, and I can copy to BM5.

    [quote user="Stan"] The "converting" converts files that the BM5 can read "wma lossless" to flac or mp3 (don't remember which, probably flac) when it serves DLNA files. In this way, I can listen to wma lossless files on my Eclipse or Essence (which do not support wma lossless) served from my BM5. The files remain stored as wma, they are only converted during the serving process. [/quote] Ok. That makes sense. Thanks.

    An update and additional question. Based on the many comments in this thread, I have decided to keep my BM5. I sent it in for repair at an non-authorised B&O dealer, and they replaced the whole box with a refurbished one with one year's guarantee. I'm about to move all files from my backup disk to the new HDD. Learning from my mistake, I will purchase a new HDD once all my files have been copied and clone this with the existing B&O HDD. I will then use the B&O HDD as backup. A

    [quote user="Mr 10Percent"] [quote user="Mr 10Percent"] The key to the BS5 was a) a rock-solid music file structure and b) buying a superfast 1TB Harddrive. Do that and with +600 albums, I found it was not lacking in terms of responsiveness and straight forward to clone-up. [/quote] Sorry not being smart. Sorry for the hard drive too. Like all PCs, best to keep a clone or full backup image as HDDs do fail. A 450 Euro HDD also has some propriety software on it. Ask you Dealer/repairer

    Either I will try to replace the hdd somehow or sell the BM5 to my dealer.

    [quote user="koning"] Harddrive 450 euro's incl. [/quote] Where did you find the B&O harddrive? Can’t find it on Amazon or eBay.

    I got a call from my dealer today who told me that the harddrive was dead and had to be replaced. This would cost about 900 euros­čś▒ I will of course not spend that amount of money on an old system, and a second hand Moment does not cost much more. However, without gapless playback, the Moment is not for me and instead I might consider changing the harddrive myself. There are several threads in here about this, so I will have to do some studying before I decide what to do. I’m no technical expert

    Thanks MM. This makes good sense, and explains why I can do gapless playback on BS5. I once contacted Creation5 to ask if they could implement gapless on the BS5, but they said that this would have to be done by B&O.

    You mean that gapless Beosound 5 is new to you? That is how mine works.
