  • Re: New TV. Time for a change?

    I don't personally feel that B&O TV's are overpriced for what you get - if you see the TV as also being a hub in an AV role. Perhaps if you just want a set to watch the news, sports, the odd broadcast movie etc. But if you love movies as well as music, then the TV's are fantastic - as you get not only an excellent picture, you get a state of the art surround sound decoder, and a fully active speaker array that does double duty as the centre channel in a surround sound movie setup

  • Re: H9 released

    Anecdotal audiophile comment has it that the wired H6's are still the most authentic sounding of the range. Would love B&O to produce a top of the range product that would compete with the likes of Sennheisers HD 800's ...

    Would be interested to read this - can one buy a copy of the magazine individual issue online at all? Cheers John.. :-)

  • Re: Any word of some Lightning BeoPlay headphones?

    I would concur. Even if the DAC in the new lightning connected headphones is of 'average' quality, its likely to sound better than the DAC feeding the previous 3.5mm analogue jack in the iPhone itself, due to the analogue output stages (in the headphone) being isolated from an noisy electrical environment (in the iPhone itself) as per the previous arrangement. And then there is the issue of an analogue signal travelling up a wire to the actual headphones, and being susceptible to noise in

  • Re: Any word of some Lightning BeoPlay headphones?

    One aspect of dropping the 3.5mm analogue jack in favour of the supposedly digital lightning connector on the new iPhone 7, is just how and where the conversion is made from digital to analogue to drive the wired headphones (an analogue device). Do the new supplied earbuds with lightning plug, have a miniaturised DAC in them? Ditto the supplied lightning/3.5mm adaptor. Or has the apparently digital Lightning connector on the iPhone been rejigged in some way such as to pass an analogue signal from

  • Re: V1 sells pretty quickly at Lifestyle AV.

    Vanilla sells pretty well amongst the conservative set too - Toyotas don't have the reputation as 'white goods on wheels' for nothing.. :-) From an ownership POV the V1 is quite timeless in it's design - it may not be the most elegant TV in B&O's history, but it is certainly not boring either, and is always a pleasure to view in a room, whether it is on or off. Oh, and it did win a Red Dot design award... I will not be parting with mine... :-) Cheers John..

  • Re: Beolab 9. Easy to blow???

    Despite the incorporated protection (thermal overload, ABL) - which I might point out no passive speaker has - I would think if you punish it enough, for long enough, amplifier clipping or more general overheating of the voice coil could destroy a tweeter. Being an 'ex' audiophile I exercise caution - in a listening room 5 x 4 metres, I seldom go above 55 on the volume for music, and 60 for movies. In moments of gay abandon, I've cranked it to 62 on movies and large organ works - but

  • Re: BeoLab 90 - The BeoWorld Review...

    Lee; thank you so much for taking the time for such a thoughtful and comprehensive review, along with the photos and YouTube videos clips etc it is VERY much appreciated.. :-) Donning my classical musician hat, (and discarding my audiophile one), that the Beolab 90's have been a project aimed at building the best loudspeaker in the world does not surprise me, given the technical specifications and design brief re the variable directivity etc, and of course the quality of components and design

  • Re: Beolab 90

    I have to say, having thoroughly digested the technical white paper, and watched the youtube videos on the presentation, that I am somewhat over the moon with excitement with these speakers. Whilst it is unlikely that I will be lucky enough to ever own a pair (never say never!), there is not just the thought of the trickle down technology to other, later model variations, but the fact that these speakers once again, as did the Lab 5, put B&O up amongst the manufacturers of some of the best loudspeakers
