  • Re: Beoplay A9 Mk.4 - experience?

    [quote user="peterafox"]Hey... there’s a review here on YouTube from the Manchester store... explains the differences and Google Assistant options well. https://youtu.be/VQVzFqwRokI [/quote] Nice.Thank you. That review pretty much brought the answers, not sure how I missed finding that video. Just to also have the answers here in this thread: The room calibration is done by the A9 playing a test sound and measuring the result, no sight of an external microphone so it must be using

  • Beoplay A9 Mk.4 - experience?

    So I see there is a new A9 and as I am looking to maybe acquire an A9 it has me wondering which version to go for (I was about to pull the trigger on the Mk.3, but now...). As I understand the Mk.3 and Mk.4 share a lot only there are some change to the electronics, where especially the 4 supposedly using a microphone to adapt to the room it is installed in has my interest. I imagine it comes with a microphone in the box, so that one can easily redo the calibration when needed (My car stereo has that

    [quote user="Earle"] Hey All,... I figured I'd contribute to this one since it was incidentally on my mind recently. <SNIP> I feel like stereo definitely has its place and will always be relevant. However, the second part is how well the source was mixed. If you recall the stereo versions of some Beatles tracks that were originally in mono, they were remixed into stereo in a horrible way (from an audiophile's POV). I will admit, the strong separation led to quite a successful

    [quote user="moxxey"] [quote user="Millemissen"] But....any A9 can play loud - louder than most people want it, especially in a bedroom. [/quote] This is very true and something I was trying to say previously about not being encouraged solely on watts/power. I'm more than happy with my A9. I'd even go as far as it's possibly one of the best B&O purchases in the last 10 years, in terms of power, design, sound quality and performance. A6 was terrible in comparison

    [quote user="Millemissen"] Just for your info - it seems that you are getting things mixed up a bit. Using the Logitech Media Server (LSM) is one thing - for this you would need to connect the output of the Logitech box (from the YouTubed product). I suppose this is how you do it now in your main setup. If this would be what you want for the A9, you will need no app, basicly no nothing. Just connect the R/L output of the Logitech box to the L/R input on the A9. Though this would work, I

    [quote user="Millemissen"] http://bogo.custhelp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/7207 But why not use the app - you will probably need that anyway e.g. for radio/TuneIn.....or? Note: if you really only want to use DLNA sourced material (no B&O mulitroom etc), you could opt for the A9 first gen. Preowned they go for rather little money, since they are limited (no ChromeCast/AirPlay 2...) - the sound is just as good as from the 2nd gen. MM [/quote] Thank you. Interesting tip on the MkI

    Many thanks to all of you for the good info. I do now feel a lot more confident about putting up just one unit to provide music in my bedroom - and also that it working with my current Logitech Media Server should not be a problem. Along with reading your answers here I have also been looking at what B&O writes in their support section, looking especially at the manual and while clear enough it also leaves me with some questions and also I discovered there is a MKIII of the A9. I will research

  • Is stereo still a thing? aka. Is one BEOPLAY A9 MKII enough?

    So in my living room I have a nice classic stereo setup as in Squeezebox, D/A converter, high end amp and two big passive speakers (sorry, not B&O) and I am considering a music solution for the bed room. As I try to keep things as simple as possible for the bed room I am considering a BEOPLAY A9 MKII, however I wonder about stereo with such a setup - is there such a thing as to simple a setup? The question is really both a BEOPLAY A9 MKII question, but also a general one when looking at all the
