  • Re: How to connect a 5.1 (Beolab 17) to my mac? Is there a powerlink ethernet hub?

    Why not use the Toslink input on the 17? Many Macs have Toslink out as part of the audio out. Or they used to, many now do not. In that case how about a HDMI to Toslink converter? Like this one, https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Extractor-Converter-JTDAT5CH/dp/B00BIQER0E/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_23_img_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=1C85GPCE0QY559TJJVR1

    What about Beolab 17? Is there any alternative ways to run them wirelessly except for Beolink?

    I do not have an M3. Does that also run on Airplay?

  • How does BeoPlay A9 work?

    I am curious if the analog inputs on the A9 are carried through to the power amplifiers in the analog domain or, as it seems to be the norm these days, converted and handled in the digital domain, all the way to the Class-D power amplifiers, with another conversion to pulse width modulation (PWM) somewhere along the way (for instance the Texas Instruments chips in Sony home theaters work that way). The service manual is not very helpful in that respect as there is no schematic but a “wiring

    I have found one solution to Airplay troubles. It works perfectly if a bit expensive. Last year I bought a three-piece “Google Wifi” mesh system. One of these connects to the internet modem. The other two ”mesh” with the first — and each other — to provide an above average wifi experience. Each unit also has an ethernet jack and is powered by USB (C). Now I have one of these Google units attached to the back of my Gen 1 A9, connected to it by USB for power and

    This may be too obvious a response (and a somewhat expensive solution) but...I have a three-piece “Google Wifi” set. I installed one of them next to my (1st generation) A9 and connected the the two via an ethernet cable. All drop-out issues are gone. You can power the Google wifi from the A9’s USB port too.

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

    So I bought a used A9. Before I buy a second one I will try it for some period of time as is. The other thing I thought is mounting it at a 90 degree angle to see how it works in "mono" that way, kin of in a psuedo "d'Appolito" arrangement:

    BL18 as in Beolab 18? I have a pair. But I do not think that would be much of an improvement over the Red Lines in the bass department, would they?

    [quote user="Millemissen"] [quote user="toptip"] This is how the Red Lines are hung now. I thought two A9s to replace them may look nice: [/quote] They might ‘look nice’, yes. But why would you want to replace two speakers with two music systems? MM [/quote] I thought because the A9 is a system and it has an internal equalized crossover, it may have better bass and just better sound than the Red Lines. In the end it is a powerful, tri-amplified speaker. But again,
