  • Re: Beolab 50 firmware update June 2021

    I've now updated my Lab 90s and 50s to the new software. One disconcerting feature is that the white light on the rear of the master Lab 90 now flashes whenever it is playing, just as it did last year when I had constant problems with a previous version of the software. It's almost as though the master thinks it cannot connect with the slave – but whereas last year the speakers refused to activate at all unless I reloaded the software, they're playing perfectly normally at the moment

    No sign of the update here for either my Lab 90s or 50s (as I assume the new firmware applies to both). The one change I'd like in a new version is to increase the maximum time-out for the USB Audio input from 60 seconds to 15 minutes, in line with the other sources. I'd also like the dedicated BeoLab 90 app to be updated to work with the latest version of iOS as it's no longer functional (though I normally use the web interface to control them anyway).

  • Re: The streamer B&O should draw inspiration from

    Thanks for a very enlightening answer. I'm currently using an Auralic Aries Femto directly into the BL90, but will probably upgrade when they launch the G3. (I tested a G2.1 and it was a significant improvement, but as it was a mid-life upgrade I decided to wait.) I also a tested a dCS Network Bridge, which I found very unimpressive, but might have more luck with their Vivaldi range if ever I get my hands on a piece to test.

    Also very interesting, @Sandy B. I've always been cautious about introducing extra steps into the chain (i.e. two DACs) and wonder whether there is any point in clocking an Auralic or dCS stack as the Lab 90s/50s reclock when converting to digital and back again, but maybe this is something I should investigate.

    Very interesting, @Mr 10Percent. I have the BeoLab 90s and am heading down the same route. I have a couple of questions for you. You said you have the full Auralic stack, presumably including the DAC. Do you find this gives you better sound when connected to the BL90s' analogue input compared to a direct digital connection from the streaming transport? Do you find the music server gives better results than a generic NAS? Do you find the Melco CD ripper (which I'm presuming is a D100) gives

    Funnily enough, somebody I know who auditioned the BL28 – and didn't buy it – also described the woofer as a "dog bowl". I haven't seen or heard it so I'll reserve judgment, but it's not a product I'd need anyway.

    Thanks, Curly. It's not really going to bother him. I was just slightly confused as some of the early reviews of the Lab 28s stated they could be connected to a Contour, which contradicted what I thought.

  • Re: Beolab 28

    The Lab 28s seem to be positioned as part-BeoLab, part-BeoSound, making them ideal for a friend of mine who has just bought a pair. He wants standalone wireless speakers with a small footprint and striking looks, and after years of swapping in and out different BeoPlays and BeoSounds (A9, BS2, Edge, Balance, Level, Emerge) I think he has found his forever speaker. He also has a BeoVision Contour. As I understand it – since I've never owned one – the Contour cannot support any external

  • Re: Questions/Advice from Beolab 50 Owners

    This seems like a classic case of the tail wagging the dog. Instead of allowing your room layout to dictate how you listen to your speakers, why don't you change your room layout to create a proper sweet spot? I have Lab 90s as fronts as rears, and my room is set up around my TV and speakers, not the other way round, with the positioning of the sweet spot measured down to the last centimetre to create a "golden triangle".

  • Re: Beomaster 6000 quadrophonic tape/ aux

    I've never encountered a quadraphonic cassette deck in the flesh, nor any quad cassettes that could be played on such a machine. Quadraphonic eight-track cartridges are more commonplace, and I'd suggest you buy an eight-track deck instead.
