  • Re: Moving away from BeoSound 5

    It actually worked better with the chrome cast. The audio level is a lot closer to the rest of the sources. 70e well spent! Compared to the 3000 of the offer of the B&O guys.

    Hi, Thanks for those pointers, I plugged everything in in the order described and then got indeed music coming through, but at quite a lower volume than all the other sources. I'll try today to hookup my chromecast audio and see how that goes.

    So I finally got the quote from my dealer and let's say it's enough to make me consider other options. I finally found a 1611 converter online, a 3.5mm to din cable, hooked everything up to the audio jack of my samsung, went into one of the link rooms, selected 'TV' and.... nothing Any quick troubleshooting tips? :-)

    [quote user="Millemissen"] The biggest difference is that you need the command A.Aux to open up the port from your linkroom devices. As I wrote earlier - it depends on the sw version of the Actives/Passives, whether they can manage this. (This could be tested, but it is most likely that the Actives/Passives have an older sw version, if the installation ist old). [/quote] That's probably correct, my previous attemt to get spotify working was to run the last supported XP client for spotify

    This is quickly becoming the most useful series of answers I've ever gotten :-) So one more questions. The 1611 Converter idea seems to get a lot of love, but why would it be better than hooking up that UFO external sound card directly to the beomaster and connect the chromecast device to that? Would the sound quality be worse?

    When the dealer was explaining all the options he mentioned this NL/ML converter and how unstable it was etc and that it had been taken out of sales? It seems you guys don't think as it as unstable?

    [quote user="lechatsurletoit"] What you need is to add a masterlink plug to your system if you don’t have one free. Thats the difficult part.[/quote] That's actually the easy part for me, This house has a master link plug coming out in every room, the previous owners were massive fans... I'll try to hunt down such a converter box tomorrow on the internet and I have a spare apple tv which i suppose will work too.

    Thanks all, this does look very promising. However we are quickly approaching the outer bands of my comfort zone. Let's see if I get this right: this converts piece will trick the setup thinking there is a tv feeding in audio? I hope so far i'm still ok :-) So, if you use the remote in one of the link rooms to select 'TV', the beosound will spring to life and take in the feed coming from that converter? Does it require a lot of configuration. Currently (as expected) nothing happens

    So I have visited my dealer and their proposal is basically to remove the beosound 5 (at most keep it for DLNA access to the music library on it) and add a beosound core to every beosound passive and replace all our beosound actives with beosound cores as well. In fact retiring our complete ML setup. I didn't get a price yet, but obviously this will not be cheap. After some pushing they did tell me they went through a very dark period because of the beosound 5 'debacle'.

  • Re: Moving away from BeoSound 5

    You are right, and to be clear, we bought this house which had a beolink connection in each room and speakers in ceilings etc, but without heart. So plugging in this beosound/beomaster made everything working. And the way it worked is fine with me as I don't want to have different sources in different rooms. However, after my experience, I feel B&O is a company in (financial?) trouble. They launched an XP based system at the time where support for XP already ended. Having an actual pc as
