  • Re: Options for rear speakers in 5.1 setup

    Thanks everyone for the input - BL3s seem to be the winner here. I have a WISA transmitter so can always pop a couple of receivers to avoid cabling back to the TV. Separately, i am still amazed by how much value the BL19 has delivered to a 3.1 setup, and specially for stereo music. Cheers, Robert

  • Options for rear speakers in 5.1 setup

    I currently have BV11-55, BL1s up front and BL19 subwoofer. Thinking of side/rear speakers to get a full 5.1 experience. Any recommendations? I am not sure what characteristics I should be looking for based on their limited functionality and the need to interact/complement BL1s. Also given my limited space, the speakers would have sit next to the sofa (as opposed to behind), if that makes any difference. BL17 seems to be the only option from the current line up, but wondering if BL4, BL12-1/2/3 if

  • Re: External Dacs

    Agree with the speakers - or an alternate route would be hi-fidelity headphones. I have the McIntosh MHP1000 which I preferred over the Audeze LCD-3, Sennheiser HD800 and Grado. But all of these are quite good, just depends on your personal preference. At a fraction of the cost of all of these, the Sennheiser HD600 is also a great choice.

    The plate is detachable - you have to turn the speaker on its side (on the floor) and look underneath. I can't recall how many screws but should be straight forward. Here is a link with the instructions.. https://www.bang-olufsen.com/~/mediaV3/Files/.../BeoLab1/BeoLab_1_English.pdf

  • Re: NL/ML converter discontinued?

    i agree with Steve - not having the Nl/ML converter is not the end of the world. Steve provided me with a nice cable-only solution that allowed me to integrate the BS9000 (and other non-B&O) to the BV11. In fact it is a better solution from a sound perspective as it used the BV11 DAC as opposed to the 20+ year old DAC of the BS9000. I did lose some remote functionality on the BS9000, but not a big issue. I am sure there are cases where the NL/ML would be needed, as i am not familiar with all

  • Re: Have we reached 'Peak' B&O?

    I also saw the Eclipse live at the store, and it looked much better than from the pictures. I was quite amazed by the OLED, though it looked too sharp and bright for my taste (and I imagine it is a question of setup). I still prefer the BV11 design and the integrated sound (as opposed to a sound bar). It is a pity there is no way to upgrade the BV11 screen to OLED. As to whether B&O has reached its peak, just take a look at the comments section of its facebook page. I have never seen such negative

  • Re: BeoLab 50

    Mikipedia - I cannot recall exactly but i think they were streaming from Spotify via one of the TVs. These speakers are close the $40K here and I cannot see the store being able to sell any based on the poor demo and overall appearance of the speakers. It has always been hit and miss with this store in their ability to properly demo products.
