  • Re: New B&O TV BeoVison Harmony

    Meh. Anyone can do Dolby ATMOS and point the speakers up, we at B&O point them down! Plus, no royalty payments to Dolby!

  • Re: B&o Playmaker, 2-3 Second delay

    I don't remember how to do it now, but it's in the instructions. I seem to recall it took a certain series of button pushes on a Beo4 remote to move it into fixed output. I used it that way into the tape inputs of my Beosound 9000.

  • Re: What are you WATCHING "right now' ?

    I just finished watching the series "Hanna" on Amazon. It was quite good IMO, being 7 episodes it can go into more depth than the movie of the same name, which I also enjoyed. Also, Amazon video now has the classic UK scifi show "UFO." Despite the ultra mod 1960s run amok style and costuming (really, purple hair?) the show is actually fairly gritty and dark especially for the day. In one episode you find out that not only did the head of the anti-alien organization sacrifice his

  • Re: What Are You Reading Now?

    I have that book too! I think you'll find it interesting. I just finished reading the Murakami book "Kafka On The Shore." While enjoyable and thought provoking, it's even more abstract than the previous work of his I've read, "The Windup Bird Chronicle." Was well worth reading though.

  • Re: No more Audio systems from B&O

    Good points Moxxey. I have a BS9000, which I truly love, what a work of functional art! But, last time I used the CD player was a couple of months ago when I demonstrated it to a guest. I use it to connect my Auralic Aries Mini to my BL9s, with volume and tone controls and a nice remote, Beo4. Having come of age, audio wise, during the glorious 70's when hifi was big business and everyone had a system, and every brand made everything, from turntables to speakers, this is hard to enjoy watching

  • Re: B&o Playmaker, 2-3 Second delay

    The delay when switching songs is normal for Spotify and most other services like that. It's due to buffering, in order to reduce the effect of temporary network dropouts the music is buffered for a few sec, so quick dropouts don't result in the music dropping out, though longer ones can cause interruption. Was that way on my Playmaker, is that way on my Auralic Mini. When I'm playing songs off the internal hard drive of the Auralic though it responds instantly. It's buffered in the

    [quote user="vikinger"] 1.5 hours drive. Nearby? This thread reminds me how differently distances are viewed in the US in comparison with the U.K. [/quote] An old saying I've heard is that one difference between the US and Europe is that over here 500 years is considered a long time, while over there 500 miles is considered a long distance. I remember when they lowered the speed limit to 55 mph, driving across Texas wasn't a trip, it was a career. ETA: I think the closest dealer

    I guess for some it's Zen and calming, for others it's infuriatingly slow and tests their patience. As you say, everyone has a different response. I think, for me, watching the film it's way too slow, but patience is at times not my strong suit.
