  • Re: BeoLab 3 vs HomePod

    [quote user="Sal"] With all of the stellar comments and reviews about the HomePod's audio quality, I have been looking into iTunes Match, especially since much of our library consists of ripped CDs. [/quote] I started in 2008/9 ripping all my CDs into iTunes Library; then I ripped my wife’s, and then over the years my three sons’ collections. That accounts for ~18k tracks. Over the years I bought iTunes Store tracks, albums, and “mtv” clips. That accounts for another ~2k. When iTunes

    [quote user="elephant"] I have tested the following: - A1 BlueTooth - A2 BlueTooth - A3 local source (ie the iPad) - HomePod (of course) Airplay - BL6K + BL11 Airplay and BlueTooth - BL20 BlueTooth Using both the iPad (1st generation) and an iPhone 5S. These tests were using Adele’s “Take It All” track and I am going to repeat the process tomorrow but using other Adele tracks and good old Jennifer Warnes.

    [quote user="Fidse"] So here is my very first B&O setup, and i absolutely love it!!! Beovision Eclipse, Beolab 19 and a pair of the new H9I headphones.

  • Any FIX This ideas ?

    The back portion seems to have lips that tuck into the portion holding the electronics. I am sure super glue is NOT the answer, however my big thumbs can’t seem to tuck it all back together again

  • Re: BeoLab 3 vs HomePod

    [quote user="leonb"] Got the HomePod today - airplaying music alternately between it (single) and (on the other side of the room) two BeoLab 3s in stereo, but right next to each other (my Living Room is in flux)...and, I don't know... I'm no expert, but the HomePod sounds more precise, clearer, with better separation between elements...but, the BL3s sound fuller, more mature somehow, though muddier. It isn't a fair competition because it's two vs one (if I replace the BL3s

  • Re: BeoLab 3 vs HomePod

    Hi Mark all the "stereo" reviews I have read have been when Apple has been demonstrating it; so those were demos in the US and the UK, and the articles came out in the previous fortnight, I am not aware of any reviews of loan units being a pair operating in stereo mode. And yes, "stereo" is to come later - I assume when AirPlay2 arrives

  • Re: Apple HomePod and Beosound Core, Beoplay / Multiroom Audio

    Hi MM You will be pleased to know(and I know I am stating the obvious and that you know this technically) that I Airplayed from my MacMini to the HomePod. For me the “integration” can be at that simple level. In fact as part of my HomePod comparison testing I have got the following running ...

  • Re: Amazon Alexa and the question: How you listen to music today

    I don’t have Alexa but I do have Google Home Mini, ChromeCast, and now Apple’s HomePad ... my plan for today / next week is to add the HomePod to a google speaker group along side the Essence and the Core. I do prefer Siri’s knowledge if my tastes (via my iTunes history of 10+ years) to the Google Assistant’s ignorance: however I do like technical challenges Thank you Chucky because your research on the BLC NL/ML line-in has got me thinking ! Even more technical challenges

  • Re: Will HomePod 'kill' BeoPlay?

    So some results ... this took a lot to set up ! Mainly because my dab measuring App mutes Apple Music on the iPhone. So I resorted to AirPlay from my MacBook. But at least I got the volumes in the tests to be almost consistent. I also used Ms ElliePhant aka SWMBO as they “ears”. The songs were Jennifer Warne singing Bird on a Wire and also Famous Blue Raincoat from the same album. I posted a picture of the rig in Flash my B&O and the MacBook simultaneously Airplaying different targets. In the
