  • My rather unusual B&O setup

    When I moved home a couple of years ago and acquired a sitting room that could really do a high-end system justice (being 42 feet x 18) I decided to create the B&O system of my dreams. I wanted to incorporate the best available B&O speakers and to be able to play almost any kind of source, from quadraphonic vinyl to DVD-A, from cassette to SACD, from reel-to-reel to HDCD. The final system, pictured here, uses the following components: TV: BeoVision 4-103 with BeoLab 10 centre speaker Front

  • Re: BeoLab 50 problem

    Not sure how to do that. I tested the BL50s again last night – they just produced the humming/buzzing when connected to the BeoSystem 3 but immediately performed normally with music through the line input. That suggests a simple cable failure, but my dealer and I are baffled that the slave still performs normally with the BS3 – wouldn't a cable failure affect both the master and slave?

  • Re: Best place to buy BL90's?

    £32,000 strikes me as an extremely good price. I doubt you will improve on that.

  • Re: BeoLab 50 problem

    None of the music I play is streamed – all content, both video and audio, is wired. I will indeed try the speakers with a wired internet connection, and ask my dealer to check all connections for earthing, to see whether that solves the problem – if not, I will have to request a replacement pair. I have read about other people experiencing software problems with Lab 50s, whereas I have never heard of a pair of rogue Lab 90s.

  • BeoLab 50 problem

    A couple of weeks ago I upgraded my rear speakers from BeoLab 5s (which had given me a lot of problems over the years, with both speakers needing their chassis replaced twice) to BeoLab 50s. However, these are already behaving oddly. The left (master) speaker has started producing a low buzz or hum instead of any sound – at first intermittently (usually after it had been on for a few hours) but now almost permanently. BeoTool shows green for "services", "system configuration"

  • Re: Beogram CD 5500 connections

    Thanks — that was definitely my impression too, based on the different models I've owned or heard.

  • Beogram CD 5500 connections

    I'm in the final stages of fine-tuning my system (about which I'll do a comprehensive post in the general forum, with pictures, in a few weeks' time) and have decided to swap my CD source from a Beosound 9000 to a Beogram CD 5500, having tested both machines against each other. I want to link the CD 5500 to my BeoLab 90s via S/PDIF, but I'd also like to be able to have remote control. Is it possible to connect the CD 5500 simultaneously by S/PDIF and to a Beomaster 5500 (which would

  • Re: Beolab 90 - interested in purchase, questions and any owners here...

    I have BeoLab 90s as my front speakers (and BeoLab 50s as rears). The sound from them is extremely impressive, with an almost holographic soundstage on well-recorded albums. Unlike your sources, all mine are B&O, and vintage (since B&O no longer makes sources of an audiophile quality). I have everything from a quadraphonic turntable and amplifier (connected using attenuators) to a reel-to-reel deck connected. When I get round to it, I'll do a full post on here about my system, including

    Thank you both for your feedback!

  • Beogram 6000 damage

    I've just upgraded my battered old Beogram 6000 to a fully restored model, which I had shipped in from North America. Unfortunately, the seller didn't have the original retaining clip for the two arms and instead shrink-wrapped them together. Unfortunately, this was done too tightly, with the result that the arm holding the stylus is now hanging limply. Also, the platter (which was not removed for shipping) doesn't look level. Are these faults that my B&O dealer and I should be able
