  • Re: Wifi router recommended by B&O

    I have a Xyzel Multy X mesh system - now a couple of years old. Its certainly not the latest, greatest or fastest by any means, nor the latest protocols. Works fine with a generic (UK) Smarthub with all my B&O NL gear without issue - including TV Streaming. I dont think you will have any problems once you have tethered the router or Mesh wifi to the NL products.

  • Re: The streamer B&O should draw inspiration from

    I’ve gone full-stupid on my gear to compliment the BL90s. Somewhere between an Audiophool and a typical B&O punter:- • A full Auralic G2/G2.1 Stack (x4) • Melco NH1 Media Server • Melco Switches and CD Ripper • PS Audio Stellar Regen to clean the digital equipment power supply • Some half-decent cables (but not silly cables) Im happy with what I have. Can I discern every component? Simply put No. Can I discern every CD/Ripped CD/Streamed CD? Simply put Yes. a) At

    [quote user="politician"] Very interesting, @Mr 10Percent. I have the BeoLab 90s and am heading down the same route. I have a couple of questions for you. You said you have the full Auralic stack, presumably including the DAC. Do you find this gives you better sound when connected to the BL90s' analogue input compared to a direct digital connection from the streaming transport? Do you find the music server gives better results than a generic NAS? Do you find the Melco CD ripper (which

    [quote user="politician"] Also very interesting, @Sandy B. I've always been cautious about introducing extra steps into the chain (i.e. two DACs) and wonder whether there is any point in clocking an Auralic or dCS stack as the Lab 90s/50s reclock when converting to digital and back again, but maybe this is something I should investigate. [/quote] Just to add on my last point for everyone else as well. Clocking reduces jitter. Im sure Technical people can give better explanations than

    [quote user="Sandyb"] Not exactly the same setup by any means, but I bought a Linn streamer / DAC for my 50s. Partly to give the 50s a Roon source - as the Linn is seen by my Roon Nucleus as an endpoint. But partly, and just as importantly, the DAC in the Linn streamer sounds a good deal more pleasing (better to me) when I take its DAC output into the analogue 50s inputs. If I bypass the Linn DAC, and just take its streamers' digital output into my 50s, its perfectly fine, but not that

  • Re: A horrible nasty question?....

    I guess the really interesting thing about the BL90 is how much redundancy can be in a pair, and can it be utilised? Say for instance, one blows a tweeter or an ICE amp/card in a critical area (forward firing), could one of the rear/side units be used and recalibrated as a stop-gap until a replacement can be sourced? Ditto the Mids. 5 of 6 produces adequate sound at 50% volume? How far could the degradation go while still offering reasonable functionality?

  • Re: A horrible nasty question?....

    From what I have asked and from what I have been told...... The BL90 is fairly bullet-proof with the Dealer unaware of any issues on the electronics side. That said, 1. B&O do a limited extended warranty for the BL90s. It is prohibitively expensive. (like 7-9% of value per year) 2. Electronics can and will fail. 3. Cones can and will fail. The real question is to what extent will B&O support a flagship product? One would (my view) expect at the level of this speaker compared to its passive

  • Re: Beolab 50 Toe-in

    My BL90s are toe-in. I toe them into as near to an equilateral triangle (30 deg) to my optimal seating position with the primary treble array directly facing me. Why with beam steering and Room correction? My logic is I assume that getting the primary treble and lower treble array in as near as perfect alignment to my ears with minimum cone reflection off the walls will be "better". I "assume", theoretically, that this will give the DSP and room correction features more hardware

  • Re: Beolab 28

    [quote user="Barry Santini"]Mr. 10 Percent: Wait to hear it before you judge it. Barry [/quote] I dont need to hear it. My response was crafted as not to be so prejudice. 1. I questioned the Marketability of these loudspeakers (how profitable they will be for B&O) 2. I stated that the design language is not to my taste - which has nothing to do with how they sound 3. I stated that Im sure they have a typical B&O sound signature. I think these are all fair comments that can be presented

  • Re: Beolab 28

    Some comments if I may? Rumour is this is a $15k loudspeaker? I hope not. If so, I see this as a joke. My reasons:- 1. Beolab 90 and 50 (and somewhat BL5) are/were critically acclaimed. Big money but appealed to a broader clientele who would never have purchased B&O just for being “form over function” mantra. 2. The BL28 goes back to the good-old bad days in my opinion. It appeals for die-hard B&O fans who are probably too busy buying-up good used gear for a fraction of its original
