  • Re: Use BL5 digital input for streamer

    I know what you are looking for but it does not exist. I have been there as well. So you better use the BL5 via a digital input and listen to music with these. Powerlink is no comparison for music. In my opinion, for surround sound you don’t need such large speakers. A good sub and some small speakers are equally good.

  • Re: Will B&O ever serve classical listeners better?

    Hello, yes my collection is ripped in ALAC. I have been ripping in that format since more then 10 years and don’t regret it. Listened to high res but was not convinced that’s worth the additional effort. Convenience with alac was the key driver. Most devices can handle alac without manipulation (for instance my car). I stream towards an airport express linked to my Beolab 5 (optical to coax conversion via a small box behind the TV wall) and it works perfect. My pentas are fed with an analogue signal

  • Re: Will B&O ever serve classical listeners better?

    That’s what I am doing. The arrival of the iPhone 512 GB 2 years ago just came at the right time, when I got bored by Sonos and the streaming services with regard to good classic recordings. I have tried Qobuz, Deezer and Apple music subscriptions but remained unsatisfied for classical music. Since then I have restarted using iTunes ( I know it’s not perfect) with as result now 500 GB of losless quality recordings in my pocket, wherever I go. I have restarted buying and ripping albums and don’t regret

  • Re: Is Bang and Olufsen in trouble?

    That’s of course the logic of a strong, powerful brand which can ask the price it wants and people will buy it anyway. But is that happening? Are enough people buying Beolab 90, 50 and 77 inch horizons at these insanely high prices? Surely there always will be somebody who will buy at a steep price. But is that number of sales sufficient to obtain a critical mass and create durable sales growth? This seems not to be the case looking at recent growth numbers, growth perspectives and stock price. Let

  • Re: Is Bang and Olufsen in trouble?

    There is absolutely no logic in asking a disproportionate high price for such a product. It will have no success then. Although I am very interested in such a product I would never buy it for a price higher than 3000 euro. There are limits to the amount people will pay for a center speaker with some smart technology behind it. The reasoning is wrong here: the Wisa center should be cheap in order to attract customers which will then be willing to buy the other B&O speakers of the home theater

  • Re: Is Bang and Olufsen in trouble?

    I experience the same lack of time to listen to my Beolab 5s since I have become a father in 2014. To be honest I listen more to my homepods spread around in the house than to my BL5 in the lounge. And to my headphone while commuting (on trains and in the car). Do I totally agree with this comment! However, since recently I do listen again to my pentas since I moved those at the sea .

  • Re: Beolab Penta Mk1 Mk2 Mk3. Why do you love them so much? Please share...

    The last 3 years I have not used my pentas and only listened to Beolab 5s and homepods. Then 3 months ago I have installed again my pentas in the hope they were still ok. I was truly surprised how good they are. That good that I currently question myself on the investment made in the Beolab 5s...

  • Re: If you could ask B&O to make one product just for you....

    I agree with that wish list. I wish also new Beolab 5 which are Wisa compatible and 192 khz. Then I could update my set

  • Re: BeoSystem 5

    Well if B&O doesn’t deliver what its clients are asking for they will not survive. If the added value of a Beovision is the exceptional design of the TV I am sorry but then they are lost too. I am not impressed by a Harmony or an Eclipse. A TV which really impresses me is the wallpaper Oled. Designwise it is very difficult to do better than that IMHO. Design villas and apartments deserve wall-mounted TVs. But do you have to pay double or triple the price? Most new large screen TVs of brands such
