    [quote user="kuyttendaele"] Outlook for 2021/22: "The launch of more than four product innovations, including both new products and feature updates to existing products."

  • Re: End of audio systems from B&O?

    After reading this thread I did a little casual A/B testing on my Flac files. 1. BV Eclipse feeding BL90s via Powerlink from a Melco N1 Music Server 2. Auralic Aries G2 feeding BL90 via USB from a Melco N1 Music Server Just so were clear…this (2) is absolutely night and day in terms of dynamics, musicality whatever over (1). Night and day. Now taking the common factors out, an Auralic Aries G2 (with Lightning Link) is £4k. However, the G1 which is sonically the same but without the Link

  • Re: End of audio systems from B&O?

    I have made my views known to this forum and to B&O directly. This includes signing NDAs on some of their product development (not audio sources) surveys. With regard to audio sources, I think there is a degree of either laziness or lack of will (perception of market demand??). 1. B&O should have had a high level audio source in the pipeline with the Beolab90s. They went for the in-built solution in the TVs with Deezer/Spotify/Powerlink (Analogue). This is unforgivable in my view. 2. As a

  • Re: Power conditioners?

    I had a problem with a super-quiet but just audible hum on the BL90’s in between tracks. I went to pain to identify the cause….cables, the AURALiC’s, household appliances etc. The issue was the AURALiC DAC/XLR cables interacting with the Labs and the only way I could remove the problem was to install a PS Audio Steller P3 Regenerator (not Conditioner) to isolate the digital sources from the mains. I believe this achieved a number of solutions:- a) it provides very clean power to

  • Re: Power conditioners?

    To add. Adding a £2000 Regen to the BL90s and an AURALiC stack may be not to silly, adding it to a Essence/BL17 is not a cost-effective solution. I would say the same to some of the power conditioner mention in this thread too. However, be careful on using a PC UPS. PCs and a lot of PC equipment is designed to run at speed and is not necessarily the quietest of appliances in terms of electronic noise. They may add more to the problem than reduce? 10

  • Re: High resolution is dead (according to Darko)

    [quote user="Sandyb"] Isn't the theme of the video that yes, the mainstream streaming platforms have publicised a up in quality of their streams, but that its half hearted, their hardware doesn't make it easy at all to enjoy the higher rates, and that in the end the vast majority of users dont actually care about anything beyond CD quality. i.e its a token nod (to high res) but for those who care, their existing choices (hardware / platforms) are as they were before [/quote] Darko

  • Re: High resolution is dead (according to Darko)

    To add, Wouldn't it be great if you could choose Amazon HR, Spotify HR, Deezer HR, Tidal HR, Qobus HR etc......and paid for the best subscription you see fit on equipment you have also seen fit to buy - whether its a full B&O system or a bunch of monkey-coffin boxes? The music by the artist is the same song - hopefully not messed about like MQA, and the bit/freq is the max you can pipe down the internet. Imagine what that would do to the hardware industry (from full dCS stacks to your mobile

  • Re: High resolution is dead (according to Darko)

    I watch and listen a lot to Darko. Quite entertaining, though he does come to me as a 21st century media presentation of the old hifi magazines you (still) used to see in newsagents. In this context, I think he is saying 4 main things:- 1. It’s about DRM and competing control of media 2. It’s about Competing hardware and the illusion a is better than b 3. It’s mastering quality and how Record Labels make it more difficult to enjoy hi res 4. It’s about DRM basically, I see

  • 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

    [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
