  • Re: Beolab 5 toe in

    Wow… a reply from Geoff. Thank you so much. 🤩 I know your pretty active on Beoworld but didn’t think you’d respond to me. #fanboi 🤣 I have now toed the speakers in. Maybe the imaging is a little more focused. I’ve not done blind A/B tests so 🤷‍♂️ It’s defiantly not worse and it hasn’t narrowed the width and on the right recordings somehow the image extends well beyond the speakers. Something I’ve noticed that wasn’t as apparent when I was working

    Mr 10Percemt you are THE MAN. it was a digital audio problem. While playing I removed the digital cable from the beomaster 5 and no difference to sound quality. checked some setting and noticed that the speaker type didn’t have Belolab 5 selected. Not sure why this would make any difference but changing it to have beolab 5 Andy’s the speaker and I t’s all balanced and sound ping like it should. so it’s not the room. Thankfully. but there is a problem with the analog connections

    Problem solving is always a team effort. Helps think in different directions. The only way to use the line input in the beomaster 5 is via that awful behringer ufo202. it has a built in phono stage. However I’m a bit of a dummy sometimes. I really like my pro-ject valve pre amp and it’s only just occurred to me to keep using this and use the line input in the Bernringer (rather than the built in phono stage) and I’m happy with the result. That input was being used for something

    No change after powering up the system this morning. Left channel still sounding brighter and more detailed i used a db meter on my phone and it had a volume difference between speakers of about 1db (left is louder). I ran a test and I can’t hear the difference at 1db so it’s not volume causing the shift in balance. I switch the speakers around (heavy work) and consequently the sound moved with the speaker. After recalibration with the speakers now switched places the tonal balance has

    Great idea with removing the spdif cable. it may be a digital audio problem. i have tried much of what you have mentioned including the balance attenuation. ( that function didn’t actually work at all and made no difference 🤷‍♂️

  • Beolab 5 tonal balance

    Hi all, had anyone experienced a significant difference in tonal balance with Beolab 5’s. It has felt that my system (beosound 5 / Beolab 5)played left channel high for a while so I got a pink noice test tone and it’s quite evident that the right speaker sounds quite different to the left. I don’t have an accurate db meter to know if the right is not as loud but the sound is quite different in the mids. the left speaker is brighter in the mids and the right is darker/warmer using

    Thanks for your reply. no tv in the system. The speakers are connected with spdif and fully wired power link the sound difference is quite dramatic. Using an iPad plugged into the behringer ufo 202 I put into mono and then used the balance in the iPad settings to pan left and right. This made the difference in sound very obvious. I’ve had other speakers (Sonus Faber) in the same position with no trouble. I am going to swap the speakers around and see if the problem follows the speaker or the

  • Beolab 5 toe in

    Hi All. just wondering people experience with toe in on Beolab 5’s. Id suggest it’s not necessary given the dispersion on offer from the acoustic lens. I wonder if the tonemeister might have some thoughts on this?

  • BeoLab 5 connections

    Hi Everyone. Wondering if anyone has a similar set up to me and if similar concerns are common Speakers - Beolab 5 Audio - Besound 5 / Beomaster 5 conncected via powerlink and SPDIF Audio - Turntable w. phono preamp connected with RCA to the line in on BL5's. When using the BS/BM5 i have the speakers in option 0 - all works well When using the TT i change the option on the speakers to 4 then push LINK/Radio to turn them on. It takes 4 1/2 minutes for the sound to come through from the TT. Another
