  • 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

    [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

    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

    Picking up horrible distortion BG8002 >> Hyperwire MD001 >> Essence mk2 Connections good, needle ok, thinking there’s not enough signal uplift on the RIAA. im not an expert in this type of arrangement

    I have no idea what is coming - I can only speculate. I would be shocked if B&O released a £11k - $15k BeoLab. I can see the need for 2 true Beolabs in the range below the BL50 (replacements for the BL20 and 3, with 3 being the oldest design) but slapping that amount of dosh down for a loudspeaker does not make sense to me in the current financial environment. A BL3 replacement in the £3 to 4K range makes more commercial sense to me but even that is pushing it. I would settle for

  • Re: Beolab 50, best input?

    A lot of this is subjective. As indicated, the quality of the recording has a Hugh impact and by virtue of the BL50/90 the room. I don’t subscribe to the extra links in the chain theory as B&O if full of chains. I drive my BL90 predominantly through an AURALiC stack (inc DAC) and sample processor into XLR. Number of reasons for that but mainly best analogue signal to the BLs, I don’t like the USB too much and also to maintain compatibility (AURALiC has a history of being fussy whic

  • Re: Beolab 50 calibration

    My experience (from long time back) 1. Set up Eclipse, BL90, BL3, no sound bar in the menus 2. Set up BL90 in the App (the 90s also talk to the Eclipse on the fine tuning) 3. I have almost a 3.8m equilateral triangle, slight toe in, 0.5m from the back wall, enter measurements. 4. Calibrate for your listening pos on the ARC/beam etc 5. Fine tune the db for L/R To me, the biggest issue are the centre speakers. They clearly stand out (in not a good way) against the BL90s. I prefer a phantom centre and

  • Re: Beomaster 5500 service near / in Cardiff

    Have a chat with Ron and Beorepairs.com He services, troubleshooted my Beogram 8002 recently. Great comms, videos, pictures and a modest bill. He is in Swansea. The only caveat is your machines may be too late for him to repair as he does not hold spare parts for post 1985 equipment.
