  • Wooden beoremote one

    Been curious about making my own frame for the BeoRemote one. Instead of the aluminum models I’m considering making one out of wood at work where we have wood carving machinery. I’m a bit surprised B&O hasn’t done one as they are using so much wood nowadays but maybe sweat is an issue? I guess it could be lacquered though or at least patinate nicely. Surely softer and better for people with kids and or glass tables too. Anyone curious and should I make a prototype? :)

  • Re: Sound profile - a perspective on comparing Beolab 9 with Beolab 20

    [quote user="elephant"][quote user="elephant"] Michael: Listen to interstellar soundtrack, particularly ‘Stay’. I love the movie even though it is very fiction. The sound track is a really good example of Hans Zimmer and it feels like he takes inspiration from Arvo Pärt, which incidentally is the composer of one of the songs in the movie Gravity. Enjoy Thanks for tip/lead ... listening now BeoNut since '75 [/quote] OMG Thank you Michael When I first answered

  • Re: Beolab 28

    As far as I know the beolab 28 has a front facing tweeter that probably is pretty wide anglewise in sound but nowhere near 180 degree as the ALT lenses can produce. The 28 has two midrange so believe that are directed to the sides and aid in space and a single bass driver downwards. I can’t see how it can be very good at much more than sounding different in different width modes. The tweeter can’t move or send audio in another direction, neither can the other drivers. But in DSP that can be simulated

    [quote user="CB"] Hi It was the same concept for the BL5 (with a woofer THAT big ) and no vibrations issues. [/quote] A friend of mine said his neighbors complained much more about his beolab 5 than 50s, probably due to the speaker facing downwards into the ground. The 50 and the 20 that 28 replaces had front facing speakers pushing the airflow in the horizontal direction rather than vertical. Not sure how the 28s will be though. And probably not nearly as loud as the 5s.

  • Re: Streaming Audio Quality, Harmony vs Core

    Nice to hear your reflections and that my input maybe wasn’t as bad as some other people yelled at me it was :). When using a core with beolab 50 then you should use the optical input which then means the core sends a digital 192khz signal to the speakers. The speakers built in DAC will then take care of the rest. In fact the speakers DAC will then work fully 100% whereas when using powerlink it is not used to it’s full extent. Powerlink is analog and has to be made digital first and then back to

  • Re: Streaming Audio Quality, Harmony vs Core

    Interesting to hear. When using airplay there is a kind of compression going on as all sounds are conveyed to Apple lossless. I think, it differs a bit in airplay 2. When using Spotify for example I suggest to use the speaker button in the all to cast the sound instead of sending it from your phone, that way you avoid unnecessary loss of data and dynamic range. Beolab 50 can be controlled through the app and it’s possible you’ve used loudness and extended bass response in the harmony settings. If

  • Re: Streaming Audio Quality, Harmony vs Core

    [quote user="pastaj"] another question that comes up, which i understand sending the digital signal from the core and PL being analog, but lets say i use an optical to the main 50. what about the connection from the main to the secondary 50? its the same "cat 7" cable. Is that a digital signal being sent over that? if so, why doesnt BO just send the same signal from the harmony to the 50s. Why send analog from the harmony to the 50 with a cat 7 cable and then allow digital transmission

    [quote user="Sandyb"] I'd say they 28's are good value for their 10-11k price. My school of thought is / was a bit different - I never wanted to change speakers again, and my ears like a huge soundstage, so its like I wanted more sound (depth, width, richness, unity etc) than I could ever need. That way, even with my fussy ears, I'll never listen to my 50's and think I need more. That would be my approach with the 28s - they sound super impressive (although first impression

  • Re: Beolab 50 Toe-in

    I have my speakers toed in as well but only a little. This is to focus the center of the tweeters peak to my optimal seating position. I also want them to spread sound as wide as possible and for that they should be less or not at all toed in. But then I don’t find that the dome can send its sound optimally towards my couch. There is suggestions also in the technical sound guide available on the B&O support page. I remember also that Geoff replied, in his typical way, here some time ago that

  • Re: Should I change my Beovision 7-55 mark2 to an Eclipse 55?

    One thing I really miss with a “real” beovision is the anti glare glass. My oled eclipse is really horrible at glare. I have to close my blinds all the time as it is incapable of removing even the smallest light reflections.
