  • Re: Playing files directly from a laptop through BeoLab 90s

    So far, I've only tried it with one track (carefully selected for its recording quality). Whilst there were perhaps very minor differences, I certainly didn't notice any major improvements over playing the CD on my 5500. In fact, I may very slightly have preferred the presentation of the CD player. However, I will be trying it out on other tracks in the coming weeks. Thanks again for your help!

    I'm currently watching TV, so I'll try it out properly tomorrow. Will be interesting to contrast playing a CD and playing a lossless file from that CD via the BeoSystem 3 and directly from my laptop. I'll let you know!

    I think you've solved it — I need to choose the BeoLab 90s and not the internal speakers. Thank you!

  • Playing files directly from a laptop through BeoLab 90s

    I posted a while back that I was considering acquiring a music server, which would make playback of files (mainly AIFF, some FLAC or ALAC or MP3) through my BeoLab 90s easier (and hopefully sound better). (At present, the files are sent to my BeoSystem 3 and then to the speakers.) In the meantime, I've been experimenting with connecting my MacBook directly to the speakers using a USB C to USB B cable. I was under the impression that if I then launched iTunes and played some music, this would

  • Re: POLL : Buying New or Buying Used?

    In the context of this discussion, are we treating ex-demo as "new" or "used"?

  • Re: BeoSound Core with NAS

    @Geoff Martin Thanks for your input. If I've interpreted your answer correctly, I should continue playing hi-res files via a USB stick in the Cambridge CXU, but connect the CXU to the BeoLab 90s via S/PDIF. (This would mean switching my main CD player, the Beogram CD 5500, from the S/PDIF connection to the optical.) I should then give the S/PDIF connection a higher priority in the Lab 90s' settings than the "automatic" option, so I get digital sound but am able to control the CXU

  • Re: BeoSound Core with NAS

    Thanks for all the input. As I suspected, it's all a bit more complicated than I thought. I was under the impression that all I had to do was attach a hard drive to the BeoSound Core, then attach the Core to the BeoLab 90s, and I would have a direct digital path to the speakers for my files.

  • Re: BeoSound Core with NAS

    [quote user="Millemissen"] In theory you could do that with your Cambridge - it is just a matter of the size of the USB drive. But the most important part is, how do you manage these files, how do you navigate (in a comfortable and informative way). This is what DLNA (or the more proprietary) servers and the control points (e.g apps on a mobile device) is about. MM [/quote] At present, I select and play files using the CXU's remote and its user interface on my TV. If I connected the

  • BeoSound Core with NAS

    Whilst my system is capable of playing almost any kind of source (quadraphonic vinyl, quadraphonic 8-track cartridge, cassette, reel-to-reel, CD, SACD, HDCD, Blu-ray Audio, DVD-A), I don't have a dedicated NAS (network audio server). I have no requirement for streaming, and play downloads (including hi-res) by loading them onto a USB stick and playing them via my Cambridge CXU (which feeds into my BeoSystem 3 and then to my BeoLab 90s). However, I'm wondering whether I'd get better sound

  • Re: beolab 5 old chassis more fragile ?

    Yes, my Lab 5s were very problematical. Both speakers needed their chassis to be replaced twice during the 12 years I owned them.
