  • Re: Benefits of CD over streaming

    HI Trackbeo, I'm looking for the PDF - I downloaded it when it came out - but I couldn't find it this morning. Maybe I'll have better luck over the weekend. Thanks for the pointer to the Devine book - looks interesting. As for the YouTube video you mention - I think that's one of the better things to do on a football pitch. A bunch of "adults" running around chasing after a ball never made any sense to me - any more than any other sport. Makes even less sense to me why people

  • Re: Benefits of CD over streaming

    Of course there are advantages and disadvantages for everything, for example: Research indicates that the carbon footprint of a CD is lower than that of streaming if you've streamed the album more than 27 times. The nice thing about physical media is that you own it forever. I continually see tracks in my streamed playlists going dead because its been removed from the service's catalogue for some reason Streaming services have a tendency of changing their storage or transmission format (take

    [quote user="Millemissen"] [quote user="Geoff Martin"] Very few streaming services offer multichannel music (which is becoming trendy, and which I've listened to a lot for the past 20 years) and none of them offer lossless multichannel music (which I listen to a lot - but I might be weird...) Cheers -g [/quote] No, you are definitely not ‘weird’ ;-) [/quote] You can't make such a far-reaching blanket statement based on one, insignificant piece of information

  • Re: Power conditioners?

    @seanie_230: Hi, I'm afraid that I can't short-circuit B&O's customer service, however, I can help you to help them diagnose the source of the problem. Start by disconnecting all devices (EVERYTHING - loudspeakers and sources, including antenna connection if you have one) from the Eclipse. If the hum+noise is still there, then the problem is either inside the Eclipse, or some interaction between the Eclipse and your power+grounding situation. Add devices ONE AT A TIME and listen again

  • Re: High resolution is dead (according to Darko)

    Hi, I finally got around to writing a series of blog posts about the pros and cons of "high resolution" digital audio. No opinions, just some of the facts that need to be considered when trying to make up your own mind. If it's of interest (or, if you can't sleep), the series starts here: https://www.tonmeister.ca/wordpress/2021/06/15/high-res-audio-part-1/ and continues for 13 instalments. Cheers -geoff

  • Re: BS Shape in stereo - how many speakers are used?

    [quote user="BeoFrederic"] So I had a chance to listen to a large-ish Shape configuration…perhaps eight speakers… in stereo mode. And yes, I can confirm that all of the speakers seemed to be something, even in stereo mode. Bass was impressive, and the soundstage, which should have been smeary, wasn’t. [/quote] Hi, If the imaging / soundstage were "smeary", then the "something" that we're doing to distribute the sound to all of the loudspeaker

  • Re: BS Shape in stereo - how many speakers are used?

    Hi, Assuming that you have a Shape configuration with more than 2 loudspeaker tiles, then all speakers in the array are playing *something* in each of the three modes when you have a two-channel input to the system - and that *something* is full-band in all instances. This therefore means that it's not only that the woofers are all collaborating on playing the low-frequency bands. So, in "stereo" mode, there's more going on than just a simple 2.1 setup with lots of woofers taking

  • Re: BL 28 - Excellent 'Tech Info' Guide

    Hi again, Note that BeoSonic does not have an effect when you're using the Beolab 28s in Power Link mode. The volume range of all B&O Products has always been decided by the UI/UX designers over the years, and, as those of you with older B&O Products can attest, has changed many times. Some examples: 0.0 - 6.0, 0 - 72, 0 - 90, and 0 - 100. The newer products have the 0 - 100 range, however, in order to maintain compatibility with older devices, the "old" 0 - 90 steps have exactly

    If you actually manage to stay awake while reading the TGS, and you find any typos or errors, please let me know and I'll clean it up on the next version. Cheers -geoff
