  • Re: Simple Light control with Beo4 in 2019…

    I thought Boscom made one?, I have two of theirs and they are great. The other option is a Lintronic box which means you can use it with any make and pretty much future proof. I have a couple of these, the oldest one must be 10 or 12 years old and still going strong, that one controls a Yaqin Valve system, Fireplace and Lights. If I bought another TV I would most likely buy another Lintronic Box so that I could keep using my Beo4. The beauty of the lintronic solution is that you can program it to

  • Re: De-cluttering our B&O: Does it spark joy?

    I have the same problem with Telephones, I love vintage GPO phones and have bought them, sold them, missed them and bought them back again. Now I have one in the hall and change it for one in my collection when I get bored or fancy a change. They still receive and make calls with excellent quality but don't have buttons and the new repro ones are poor quality in comparison. Besides which hardly anyone calls on a landline anymore but when they do it's a pleasure answering the phone. It's

  • Re: What's with all the mono-only speakers?

    In my opinion it is two separate things Mono for background music or entertaining is fine - people managed with it for years and years, and nowadays it sounds great and is portable. Added to the fact that these days people have so many distractions, a mobile phone is not only used for streaming music, but social media, texting etc. etc. etc. so the attention span and actual listening is not that great. Personally, if I want to listen, sit down, enjoy and really listen to music, I am lucky enough

  • Re: Lossless streaming: Can you really hear a difference?

    I think it depends on the mixing and everything else that goes with it. Remastered for iTunes albums sound good. I bought some linn tracks and they were very good but a haslle to play. I use iTunes only for streaming and the quality varies. Too many variables, like the system you play it on, the room you play it in etc. etc. etc. Personally my preference is for Vinyl played through a Valve system which to me anyway sounds more musical - but even there it is dependant on how the album was mixed and

  • Re: BeoLab 6000 Speakers Problem

    Sounds like it is either the lead going into the speaker, the source or it is a loose connection on the phono socket - I have a BL6000 that has a problem with one of it's phono sockets.

  • Re: B&O announces sale of the 20 years old ‘Gården’

    I guess it makes business sense but does seem a shame - bit like the decommissioning of BBC TV Centre which I worked in and used to be proud of the BBC as it was so iconic and part of their DNA. Can't help but compare the two - now the BBC churns out the odd good programme but on the whole it is just stuff to please the masses.

  • Re: Turntable for moment and Beolab 20's

    I have a BG4002 with a restored 20CL on it and it is very good, but they are old and prone to mechanical problems due to their complexity. I also have a Linn Sondek LP12 with an Audio Technica auto lift and Shure cartridge and that is superb. More work in setting up initially but excellent results. Looks wise and ease of use the BG4002 wins but sound quality the Linn to my ears and in my setup is better, with the autolift is a welcome mod. I use the Linn everyday as most of my listening is on vinyl

  • Re: Beosystem 6500 with DAB

    You could also look at these tuners which integrate fully into B&O systems and have internet radio too. They will work with the Beo4 and also link systems if you have it connected up as such. https://shop.oneremote.dk/en/

  • Re: MMC1 vs Ortofon

    I tried a Shure M44-7 cartridge on a second hand Linn and it was superb for playing old and new records - hardly any background noise, very full sound and a high output. Well worth reading reviews as the Shure was the best cartridge I tried. I had an Ortofon Red on a Proj-ect once and that to me sounded flat. I now have a BG4002 with a restored MMC20CL and that sounds similar to the Shure.
