  • Re: Weird problem with H95 turning off

    Hi again, Hopefully, dropping the output level on your sound card will solve the problem. If not, then we'll start digging a little more. I'd leave it at the highest expected load impedance setting and just dropping the level. The H95s minijack input is more like a line input than a headphone input. (Usually, a line input would be more like 10 kΩ or more) This isn't a problem when connecting to a headphone output of a device - it just means that the device's output amplifier

  • Re: Weird problem with H95 turning off

    A couple of comments/questions before giving a helpful answer:: - the input impedance of H95 is about 1.5 kΩ, which should not be part of the issue.(if it were 12 Ω then I might blame the sound card being asked to deliver too much current) - what are your volume settings on the two devices? If the sound card is able to go much higher than 1 V RMS at its output, then the H95s might be shutting themselves down to protect themselves from an overloaded input. So, if your sound card output

  • Re: BeoVision 11 - How to turn off auto Sound Mode selection

    press MENU select SOURCE LIST press GO (the round button on the centre of the diamond on the remote) go to a source (e.g. TV TUNER) press the RED button to setup the source select ADVANCED SETTINGS press GO select SOUND MODE press the RIGHT facing arrow on the diamond on the remote select the sound mode that you want as a default (e.g. MOVIE) press GO to store do a similar thing if you want to change the default Speaker Group here press and hold BACK to get out of the menus Cheers -geoff

    [quote user="Michael"] Thanks, and sadly I guess the lack of response to the firmware means that there is an issue with it that can not be discussed? 😬🙈 [/quote] Hi, There are two answers to this not-really-a-question. Please remember that I'm not a short-circuit through B&O's customer support. I work on the development end, so things that are happening on the market end are usually things that I don't know much about off-hand. So, typically, I don't not know the answer

  • Re: Questions/Advice from Beolab 50 Owners

    I’d say that you should try installing them facing forward (don’t toe-in), calibrate the distances, levels, and ARC correctly to wherever you want to sit, and then make two presets - one narrow and the other wide - abc use whichever you prefer. It’s not perfect, but it’s not bad... another option is to make a preset for a listening position that only exists when you temporarily put a chair there. You won’t be the only person who does this. Remember that the narrow mode isn’t a laser - it’s very forgiving

  • Re: A good tutorial on audio levels

    The problem is that there are two definitions of "loudness". One is the one you're talking about - a bass (and possibly treble) boost to compensate for the equal loudness contours (a.k.a. Fletcher Munson curves). The other is the definition that psychoacoustics people use - which is a perceptual measure of how loud things sound. Measuring sound pressure level (SPL) does not always correlate with how loud things sound to us for a lot of different reasons. One of them is the equal loudness

  • Re: Beolab 50, best input?

    [quote user="Esax"]RCA, optical, usb or spdif? [/quote] I'm afraid that the answer is "it depends" What do you mean by "best"? What is the source material? What is the source device? However, I can say that, if your source has a digital output, and ALL other aspects in ALL parts of the chain are equal, then there will be no difference between Optical, S/PDIF, and USB-Audio, since The bits that come into the DSP follow identical paths for these three inputs (remember

  • Re: Beolab 50, best input?

    While we were walking the dog, I've given this thread a little more thought, so I've one more thing to add before going to bed: Consider the following: You have a source that can take a PCM file from a hard drive and simultaneously send it out a digital and an analogue output. Let's say that the DAC and analogue output stages of that source have a reasonably flat magnitude response to about 90% of Nyquist and they have a 110 dB SNR (which is pretty good - but not outrageous) Let's
