  • Re: Beolab 5 in a non-B&O setup - Onkyo, AppleTV, Panasonic TV.

    Rather than get a "receiver", why not get a preamp/processor? It looks like all of your speakers are powered so you shouldn't need the amplifiers in the receiver. David

  • Re: Beolab 5 tricks?

    I have seen this comment before. While I don't have a pair of Beolab 5's (though I hope to in the coming year), I have a theory as to why they are perceived to have a limited bass response (cue Anne Elk for you Monty Python fans). In many speaker reviews, I've read of "room gain" in the bass response, e.g. the bass response rises in volume relative to the midrange response as result of boundary reinforcement. Could it be that since that adjusted Beolab 5's account for this

  • Re: Beolab 5 Calibration

    Is there concern that your speakers are not working as well as you would have liked based on your room size? I'm asking as I'd like to have a pair of BeoLab 5's in my basement listening room, hopefully in the next year. My room dimensions are 35' x 16' x 6.67' (D x W x H) (10.7 m x 4.9 m x 2.0 m). The speakers would be installed along the 16' (4.9 m) wall. Does the room construction have any bearing on how well these particular speakers do? Three of my walls are wood paneling

  • Re: Visit to Struer, talk with Mr. Geoff Martin

    Are you able to provide any background for your estimate? Do you have any hints as to what the new speaker will be like? My GUESS is that it will have the ability to adjust the sound at the listening position (hinted at on a website discussion of a visit to the B & O plant) and have a relatively flat depth like the BeoLab 12, all while providing the performance of the BeoLab 5.. Again, these are all just guesses.

  • Re: Beolab 5, anything new coming

    I wonder if the ability for the Beolab 5 to adjust frequency response at the listener position might be a moot point in this era of surround sound processors that do that for ALL of the speakers in a system, not to mention adjust cross-over points as well. David

    One thing that caught my eye regarding this topic is on the Audioholics On-Line A/V Magazine in which the writer went to the B & O facility (lucky guy!). After writing about the Adaptive Bass Control , the next paragraph was this: While this is not a true room correction system, it is a fairly interesting dependent boundary and room mode system. In non-optimal placements, the Adaptive Bass Control will help the BeoLab 5 sound the way the designers meant for it to sound. When asked about true
