  • Re: BeoLab 3 vs HomePod

    [quote user="Jeff"]If you can AirPlay your library from your PC using iTunes and wifi, that's good, if not, it's a major issue. [/quote] Thanks, We're an all Mac family where airplay is not an issue in the least. Perhaps there is a place for HomePod in our house after all.

I am a total B&O fan but Apple has done their homework on the speaker side. In fact, I only worry that if Apple were to apply their technology / software expertise to larger and true home audio set up. how will that impact

    [quote user="elephant"]But where did your phone’s music come from ?[/quote] My wife uses her MacBook Pro (iTunes Library >400GB) and syncs what she wants to her 256GB iPhone. I use my MBPro the same way, syncing what I want on hand to my 64GB iPhone. We have a Mac Mini always on as a server with a combined iTunes Library available through Home Sharing & Twonky. We have Sonos Connect also accessing the server as well as Twonky for use via the B&O app, Home Sharing is used

    [quote user="didole"]- If you are interested in playing your ripped CDs, you should definitely consider iTunes Match. It costs only about 20 bucks/year, and allows you to upload all your locally stored music to iCloud Music Library, and replay it on the HomePod through Siri.[/quote] With all of the stellar comments and reviews about the HomePod's audio quality, I have been looking into iTunes Match, especially since much of our library consists of ripped CDs.

    I have read reviews where the "stereo" sound with a pair of Homepods sounds different than "stereo" that we're all used to. Haven't experienced this myself, but I think we all may be comparing apples / oranges; pardon the pun. I still contend that traditional stereo should sound better on a pair of Beolab 3's than two Homepods.

    Full disclaimer: I haven't heard the HomePod, and likely won't be ordering one for a while. Having owned a pair of Beolab 3 speakers, I have to say unequivocally that I doubt the HomePod will come close to the quality and imaging of the sound (even with two in a stereo pair) of a pair of Beolab 3 speakers. I doubt anyone would disagree. I'd get a Sonos Connect and hook up your BL3 speakers to that if you want to have the best SW and audio experience for accessing your music library. I

    [quote user="trackbeo"]Similarly, with your Sonos Connect you use arguably the best music library selection app available, and with Spotify Connect if you're using their app you're golden. I wouldn't trade that for any BeoApp and the Core.[/quote] Since sound and looks are such a subjective thing, I'll put my two cents in and agree with all of trackbeo's suggestions, especially the one noted above. If you're used to Sonos Connect, then you're going to be extremely

  • Re: Will HomePod 'kill' BeoPlay?

    Mark-N, here's an excerpt from this article which is making the rounds: "If you add music to your home iTunes library that was not acquired through a purchase, HomePod will not be able to access it. It appears HomePod doesn’t have Home Sharing, which would enable that kind of feature."

    [quote user="Mark-N"] I am a pretty basic user since I don't subscribe to Apple Music and only use my local library of music.[/quote] This is me and I also don't use Siri. However, the fact that one's true library isn't accessible via Home Sharing, and even if it was, it may not play all of the tracks based on limitations which are right now being reported by tech news sites is a bit problematic. I'm eager to hear how it sounds so please keep us posted!

    Well, if some of what is stated in the article linked below is true, I'm not purchasing the HomePod however nice it sounds: https://9to5mac.com/2018/01/23/homepod-can-play-purchased-itunes-music-podcasts-and-stream-beats-1-without-apple-music-subscription/ If it can't access music in my iTunes library that I've ripped from CDs, then that's a dud device in my book. No Home Sharing? Come on, Apple. For once, B&O's Twonky integration to make your iTunes library available via
