  • Re: Beovision 4-42 / BeoSystem 2 en kpn digitenne

    Ietsje of topic: Ik had graag geweten of je de beovision 4 nodig hebt / moet inschakelen om de beosystem 4 te kunnen gebruiken? Ik ben op zoek naar een goedkope B&O home cinema module maar voor gebruik met een projector. De beovision wil ik niet in mijn living. Anderzijds kan je de beovision 4 gebruiken zonder de beocenter module (bv. als een pc scherm)? Alle inlichtingen zijn welkom!

  • Re: beolab 5 and Sonos

    Hi Carlito, I still have the problem of automatic standby of the beocenter 2 when playing sonos via CD mode... I have the option selected on 0 to be able to play both the sonos via CD or other analog input of the beocenter 2. With the option 4 selected the BL5 don't play the beocenter 2!! Then only the digitally connected sonos is recognized. With the option 1 selected the BL5 don't play the sonos!! Then only the beocenter 2 is recognized. What I am doing wrong? Option 0 is annoying as sonos

  • Re: What will make existing customers stay with B&O

    I would like them to make expensive quality products besides the current cheaper products we see now. The recent speakers are very unattractive to me. Why aren't there any combinations sets of quality speakers available? A new intelligent beosystem which can master a complete house without excessive cables would be an example to complete these. I also believe there are way too many television sets, 3 or 4 sets which are periodically updated would suffice. Just my immediate thoughts..

  • Re: Bang&Olufsen loudspeakers ranking

    Hi all, for me it is: 1. BL 5 2. BL 1 3. BL Penta. I admit it is a close call between lab 1 and penta as pentas are very good. Lab 1 is simply the better speaker each again after listening to pentas for some months. Now they are gone another happy owner and lab 5 are in the house!

  • Beolab 5 low Frequency Effects

    Hi everybody, Since a couple of weeks I am the happy owner of beolab 5's which I have installed in my living room. As I use Sonos - digitally connected - for streaming music a marriage with my beocenter 2 did not offer a good solution because of the "CD repeat" problem. As an alternative I now use a Music Hall 15.2 DAC with spdif output which serves as a digital bridge between on the input side a Sonos, Blue Ray player and the usb input from my laptop and on the other side the beolab

    I agree that too much low bass is not desirable in all situations. But here we are in a movie so I don't understand why the subs of the BL 5 are not activated (or very little) in an action scene while the sub of my silly 2.1 system - based on an analog signal - is really active? Would a surround preamp which redirects all LFE to the BL 5 solve the solution? I cannot imagine that a BL 2 is needed for movies? Thanks

  • Re: Beolab 5 low Frequency Effects

    Hi guys, thanks a lot for your helpful comments. Just to be clear I currently don't have a multichannel processor. It's a simple Panasonic blue ray player attached to a DAC which outputs a 2 channel signal (analog or digital) to the BL5. So I believe Soundproof could have a point in the sense that the LFE info is not sent through via the digital output. It is a bit strange that low bass is being sent through the analog output.. Regarding calibration, I have done it for both speakers in my

    Soundproof, I wish it had the pre-outs as shown on your example of the Oppo but it hasn't. The connections are shown here: http://www.goodgearguide.com.au/review/home_entertainment/panasonic/dmp-bd65/367507 It concerns a simple 'stereo' analog output. I have just connected this with analog cables to the line-ins of the beolab 5 but noticed not any improvement in bass compared to the digital signal. It all remains pretty normal (bass) even at high volume levels. What I will try now is

    It seems that this player indeed would fit my needs! Since I am sure to stick with B&O there is no need for an A/V receiver. Of course a pre/amp for multichannel processing offers a lot of flexibility for future changes although I have the impression that this player could also do the job. It is amazing that you adjust all output signals in function of your set. That is precisely want I want to do. Volume control is no problem for the BL 5 but how would you control surround and center speakers

    I have scanned the manual of the Oppo and it indeed allows for volume control of the analog (multichannel) signals as such solving the potential problem for the surround speakers. This is great as it is really perfect for my needs: I am sold and will buy it when I will be in the US in September. As recommended I will use analog rca2rca cables for the connections: in front to the Beolab 5's and for the surround channels to active Beolab Pentas (these are the only other ones I currently have).
