  • Re: BeoLab 5 Upper Woofer No Sound -- Anyone heard of this?

    [quote user="David Andel"] [quote user="nmook"]While the tech is investigating, I figured it couldn't hurt to ask if anyone has experienced anything like this before? Really hoping I don't have to spend a bunch of money on a replacement electronics module...[/quote] The symptoms you describe lead very much to the main chassis as culprit. I had the same faulty behaviour on both speakers with a delay of maybe a bit less than a year. This has happened 5-6 years after the

  • Re: Would you bother buying a non room-EQ B&O speaker now?

    [quote user="seethroughyou"] Why is the industry so reluctant to embrace active technology and room EQ? [/quote] Regarding active technology, my guess is that it is too unusual for equipment manufacturers not to mention the audio-buying public. However, I have noticed a lot of full-range speakers with built-in powered subwoofers. Maybe that is how speakers can progress to fully active speakers. I see that Klipsch is now selling active ("wireless") speakers. There have been a few

  • Re: Connect my 5 Beolab 3 and a new Beolab 2 to 5.1 Amplifier / Receiver

    I am using the BL3 as the rear surrounds via the RCA plug to PL without a trigger cable. I have not noticed any problems with those speakers shutting off at inopportune moments. D

  • Re: US B&O Stores

    [quote user="Sal"] There have been multiple comments in other threads from US members about the lack of B&O stores, and their dwindling numbers. Stores even in large bustling major metro areas are closing. What are your thoughts about the future B&O in the US? Is the US even a major player for the brand? What can B&O do to improve their standing in the US? Any other thoughts? [/quote] I'm not a shopper in stores for the most part unless I know exactly what I want. I expect

  • Re: new products in next six months

    [quote user="Sibbi"] I would love a center speaker with inbuild surround sound decoder. Sort of a mini bs4 so you could add B&O sound to any tv. Something you could use with transmitter 1 and 4x beolabs. [/quote] I have a suspicion that B & O wants you to buy their TV that does both things. D

    [quote user="Millemissen"] ......and you would need a receiver/preprocessor with a lot of pre-out connections. Did you already find one? MM [/quote] There have been several released with Atmos capability. The Marantz AV8802 was chosen as Sound and Vision's product of the year. There is also Yamaha's Aventage CX-A5100 and the Onkyo TX-NR838 AV receiver (the latter not for BeoLab speakers). I think Integra has an Atmos capable model and there is also the Pioneer Elite SC-89 (receiver

  • Re: Auro 3D /Atmos with acoustic lenses ?

    I recall reading that the low frequency cutoff for the height speaker signals is 180 Hz. Perhaps B & O can come up with a full-range powered speaker with appropriate equalization to get a smooth frequency response. Given the BL 17s frequency response, it might be a little overkill in the deep bass. However, I have thought of using it for height speakers as well. While I'm think of Atmos for my system, I think I'll wait awhile. I've read that there are few Atmos encoded discs so far

  • Re: Why has B&O ignored the passive speaker market?

    [quote user="vikinger"] I was really questioning why B&O had ignored the passive market having produced such fine passive speakers in the past. I fully understand why the B&O complete systems are for the most part active. Active speakers may well be the best and it seems that many manufacturers may now be waking up to the benefits of the active approach, but as the main market stayed with passive speakers and amplifier separates for so long it really does look like an opportunity

  • Re: beolab 5 thoughts

    I recall reading a review of one of the smaller Gallo speakers. What struck me was the philosophy of dispensing with a cross-over network! Given the fact that the BeoLab speakers have electronic cross-overs, this allows them to have a much better frequency and phase response due to equalization in the cross-over network. The cross-over network also protects the tweeters from being overdriven. Also, keep in mind that the BeoLab speakers have their own amplifiers while the Gallos do not. The BeoLab

  • Geoff Martin in Sound and Vision Magazine January 2016

    In the latest issue of this magazine (I received it today), there is very nice Q & A with Geoff about his education, training, career, and role at B & O. It is not on-line yet. The on-line version is to be extended vs. what is in the magazine. I'm glad to see B & O being featured in this magazine. Prior to a year ago or so, I'd have to go back 10+ years to see anything here regarding B & O (that was the BeoLab 5 review). I hope this is a strategy to raise their profile in
