  • Re: how to improve 5.1 DTS surround with BV11+BL5+18 + ????

    THANKS ! Lots of details in there ... I know I have once tried some things with bass management to little avail, but when I get back home I will use the article to fine tune my system. Nevertheless, my current main question is: would "replacing" the BV11 internal speakers with 2 BL17's as centre speakers be a real improvement or "not really" ? (my hunch is "yes, because two BL17's are about half the price of a whole BV11", but that could be very naive indeed

    thanks for all so far; switching off BV11 speakers is my default indeed for normal music / TV. But as I do want the BL5's as fronts, I hence have no centres in case of movies/5.1 music even though it sounds better compared to making the BV11 as centres. buying BV17 seems an option I hadn't thought of before, but would that really be much better ? Are non-B&O centre speakers an option at all ?? (WISA?)

  • how to improve 5.1 DTS surround with BV11+BL5+18 + ????

    Hi all, basically my (luxury) problem is: how can I substantially improve the 5.1 DTS surround sound of current BV11 + 2 BL5 + 2 BL18 system. (apart from replacing the BV11 with the Eclipse - vetoed because of looks) Configuration: both BV11 speakers as centre; 2 BL5's for left and right front; 2 BL18's for left and right back recently I got a few 5.1 surround remixes by Steven Wilson of classic prog albums and configuring my 5 speakers in surround mode it became again clear (as with DVD

  • "A.opt" equivalent Beo4 /nav

    good morning, with old Beo4 /w GO there was the "A.opt" function to change the option setting for e.g. a Beosound 3000. I wanted to change the setting of my Beosound 3000 with a new Beo4 (/w nav button), but in the long list under "LIST AV? " there is no "A.opt".... so how do I change the setting of a Beosound 3000 from e.g. option 0 to option 1 with a new Beo4? thanks! Rene

  • Re: Beolab 5 - New Receiver 1 and Transmitter needed!

    As it happens, this morning my B&O dealer's engineer repaired one of the PL connectors (BL5 to BV11) and we talked about WISA connecting my Beolab 5 speakers. My BV11 has WISA so he said I only needed to buy a receiver, i.e. implying that what you (and I) want is possible already. Can anybody confirm this ??? Thanks !

  • BL5 - left/right switch

    With two BL5 connected to BV11, does it really matter in which position the left/right switch at the speakers are set?? The manual states so "remember to etc". But isn't it sufficient to adapt it on the sound menu of the BV11, ie there one can choose whether its left or right? Or am I missing something ? thanks, Rene

  • Re: BL5 - left/right switch

    hence they just need to be in different positions - but no harm if the physically positioned to the left speaker is switched on the BL5 itself in the "right" position but in the BV11 menu being defined as "left" ????

  • Re: Apple TV PUC stopped working

    THANK YOU !!!!!!! this worked. Even got to have ATV 3rd gen work on my BV-10 (using the single old PUC code) when I noticed that the ATV 2nd gen that I had decided to connect to my BV-11 instead worked without changes, but had the Apple Remote unpaired already..... THANKS. So I take back my implicit accusations to B&O ! :-)

  • Re: Apple TV PUC stopped working

    Thanks to all responses so far. I finally managed to do basic checks by exchanging the Apple TV with the older one from the bedroom, and the result is: connecting the Apple TV 2nd gen from the bedroom BV10 to the BV-11 on the very same PUC works flawlessly. The ATV 3rd gen can only be controlled using the Apple TV remote. Interestingly, when connected to that PUC cable the light on the 3rd gen does respond to the Beo4, but nothing else happens. (Double double check: connecting the 3rd gen to a completely
