  • Beolab 50 firmware update June 2021

    Hello friends, Just saw my Beolab 50 had a new firmware available to update. I was on 3.0.0.616 and updated to 3.1.0.1001. So far I haven't seen any differences except that the web-UI is dated 2021-06-03 and that I can see both the primary and secondary speakers firmware info in the product info but this might have been added earlier. (I remember that it was sometimes so that only one speaker would update previously). One thing that occurred for me was that the speaker got stuck on a dialog asking

    Yea they are sadly very reluctant to sharing such info. Weird as these speakers are such special beats and a lot of users probably would LOVE to know. Anyway, they did include a text for the iOS app, but only this "Dummy long description" :D.

    [quote user="John"] I've got your back Features: - Major bugfix release fixing several issues reported internally and from the market including ticking sound issue. - New Marvell Firmware - Improvements made to performing ARC more easily (robustness on 50Hz noise) - Manual source selection - USB Volume disable feature. Allows to disable the USB Volume control, for sources setting the volume to 90. [/quote] Wow thanks John! Really informative and interesting. Will try it out this weekend

    [quote user="Geoff Martin"] I'll let you know when the update to the Technical Sound Guide is available. This will explain the "manual source selection" and the "USB Volume" features. Have a nice weekend -g [/quote] More excitement to come! Glad to see new features coming and looking forward to reading about them more. But now I think sangria is calling! Have a nice weekend you and everyone here too!

  • 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

  • Re: Beolab 28

    [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
