  • Re: Beocenter 2 or Beosound 4?

    Peter is right on all of his statements. I have the BeoCenter 2 and have not used it at all since I bought the BeoSound 5. The convenience of having all of my music on a simple interface just makes the BeoCenter 2 obsolete. I don't even use the BeoCenter 2 for DVD playback since my Samsung blu-ray player is superior in every way. I still keep the BeoCenter 2 since it looks pretty. Just a useless piece of art now.

  • Re: My new disc-less B&O home setup

    [quote user="DoubleU"] [quote user="erg4000"] I ripped all my audiophile music lossless into iTunes. [/quote] So this means your Mac/PC needs to be on, in order to listen to music? My setup is "laser free" too and almost the same as yours. All my media is on a Time Capsule. All video-formats can be read with my jailbroken ATV2. (XBMC is great. I love the interface) Only restriction is 720p max. ATV2 can't handle 1080p, but I can live with that. I could use ATV2 for

  • Re: What´s next?

    Since buying the BeoSound 5, I use it every day and certainly welcome an iOS interface. I have the Beo6 but am unimpressed with it as an interface to the BeoSound 5. The great thing about an iPad interface is that there could be multiple options of interfaces to suit the preferences of the individual user. For example, one type of interface could be a touch screen that is exactly like that of the BeoSound 5 screen, complete with flick control of your finger. In addition to that, there could be search

  • Re: Bm5 as video server?

    Today, I received a promotional brochure from B&O that strongly promotes the Apple TV to be used as a video server for the BeoVision 10. As the new BeoPlay TV even has a built-in space for the Apple TV, it seems that B&O is steering toward the Apple TV rather than the Tvix. I have an Apple TV connected to each of my 3 B&O TVs and love it.

  • Re: Bm5 as video server?

    Pantonline, I agree with you completely. The extra cost of the BeoMaster 5 is so much that B&O really needs to add more features to it to justify the higher cost than the Encore. There is so much potential for added features. For example, B&O could add popular features such as Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, Pandora, and Vudu. Moreover, B&O could create a beautiful interface for this that has a great B&O "feel." A HUGE problem and mistake of B&O was using DVI instead of HDMI

    I find that the price of the Apple TV (only $99 USD) and elegance and simplicity of its interface make it highly attractive. The free Handbrake app for the mac does a beautiful job of encoding rips and videos to Apple TV format. With my new iMac, this usually takes only 10 to 20 minutes for a full-length movie. Also, you can use this same format for portability on the iPads and iPhones. This is the same format as what you purchase from the iTunes store. You can even adjust the settings in Handbrake

  • Re: Would you buy a Beosound 5 today?

    [quote user="Huwwy"] Hi mbee, When i discussed buying an Encore with my dealer he told me that his understanding is that the Encore would not be adapted/upgraded to allow multi room use or two way remote or have any other major developments. It was this information that stopped me buying an Encore. I can't believe it is true but he is a B&O dealer! [/quote] That's exactly what my dealer told me. He made it very clear that the Encore is strictly intended to be a stand-alone product

  • Re: Bm5 as video server?

    It would be worth seeing what announcements Apple has for the Apple TV next week. It's expected that there will be apps available for the Apple TV, which could open it up to more services such as Hulu, Pandora, Spotify, etc. Also, it's expected that Apple will announce the option to have gesture control via a motion-sensor attachment to the Apple TV. This would remove the necessity for a physical remote control, much like XBox Kinect and the new Samsung TVs. Also, the Mountain Lion OS for

    [quote user="Stan"] [quote user="beojeff"] That's exactly what my dealer told me. He made it very clear that the Encore is strictly intended to be a stand-alone product and that there is absolutely no future plan for it to be part of a link room system. He said that that is what the BeoMaster 5 is for. I'm wondering what other buyers' experiences have been with their dealers and if their dealers have been as clear and straightforward as ours. There seem to be an awful

  • Is there a B&O folly worse than the Playmaker?

    Looking at the Playmaker and looking back at past B&O designs, I'm having a hard time finding a worse folly. These products were technical follies, but still had nice design: Beo1 DVD2 AV7000 BeoSound 2 Whereas, these products certainly had questionable design: Beovision 3 DVD1 HDR1 BeoSound 6 Still, I can't find any B&O product to rival the design folly of the Playmaker. With the Playmaker lacking N network support, it just might fall into the technical folly category as well.
