  • Re: How does the Beolab 5 stack up against the top of the line B&W...

    I used to think I was going to keep my lab5s until they essentially died. That's changed Recently hooked the lab5s digitally to a lyngdorf DPA-1 preamp with room perfect room correction and the sound is really incredible. Best I've ever gotten out of the speakers. However, one of the tweeters is not working correctly when the speakers are played via dig coax in. After repeated attempts to get the speakers fixed through B&O and essentially no response from them, I went to a local high

    They are about 6 yrs old. My dealer contacted B&O to see if there is a local service center, which he thinks there is.

    Thank you very much. This is what I suspected. The sticky part is that I live about 6 hrs from the closest B&O dealer, not including Canada. Hope they're willing to send a technician because I'm definitely not shipping these monstrosities.

  • Beolab 5 problem

    So I thought I would see if some of the experts here could diagnose my problem so I will have somewhat of a clue to tell the service people. I recently hooked my lab 5s up using the coax digital to a preamp that has a digital out. I have had absolutely no problems with them previously using the line in. Now, when playing through the digital connection, the right speaker makes a crackling noise that sounds like it's only coming from the top tweeter. To further try and isolate the problem and make

  • Re: What's the WORST product in the B&O line-up

    Beosound 5 A digital music player that was 5 years past its prime when it first came out. It's supposed to free your music collection but instead needs to be attached to an ugly box and remain in one place in the room. Way overpriced as well

  • Re: What's the BEST product in the B&O line-up

    I'm somewhat biased but I'd go with the beolab 5. Like you said, timeless design, unbelievable performance, and, when considering they are active speakers with built in amplification, a relatively decent price.

    Electrified, I stand corrected re studio DA conversions. I'm glad you agree with the other parts, though

  • Re: Devialet vs Bang & Olufsen

    Audiophiles. I recently had a Mcintosh Men220 at home to demo. It's a 2 channel room correction system. I have a system in my living room where placing acoustic panels, bass traps, etc is not ideal. The room is an acoustical nightmare with hardwood floors and floor to ceiling windows without treatments. The Men220 was unbelievable, the sound completely transformed and my living room system sounded truly hi end with nice, tight bass and spacious soundstage. Now I have to credit my local audio

  • Re: BeoLabs in surround sound with non-B & O preamp

    David, The main problem with the 7-4 was the lack of line in option. The speaker needs a trigger signal sent which would would have required me to get more cables and do more finagling than I preferred. It was simply easier to get a different active center speaker from another company. The Lab3s do turn on automatically, no problems there. I've never had an issue with the speakers not receiving a signal for awhile and turning off. They stay on for awhile after getting a signal, and if they do

  • Re: BeoLabs in surround sound with non-B & O preamp

    I have lab 5s and 3s hooked up to an Anthem processor, no problems at all and it sounds incredible. I just left the lab5s volume alone and I let the processor set the calibrations for volume, coss-over, etc with mic and Anthem software. I have to use the Beo4 remote to turn the lab5s on, but that's it. All volume is controlled via the processor. For my center, I looked into getting a 7-4 but implementing that into a non B&O setup is tricky and not worth the hassle. I used an active speaker
