    [quote user="Geoff Martin"] [quote user="Playdrv4me"]XLR is amazing to see, probably not fully balanced, but if it is, even better[/quote] It is. (to be explicit: it is both differential and impedance balanced) Cheers - geoff [/quote] Fantastic. Well done.

    I just read on Uncrate that they still do in fact use 14 ice power amps, not sure where the info came from that they were made by someone else. To correct one of my previous statements.

    [quote user="Dave Farr"]The tweeters and mids use ICE power which is the 14. The woofers use Heliox 1000-1. It was in the information I copied here earlier from the press pack. Dave. [/quote] Ahh, got it. To be sure there is a LOT of info contained in that press pack, and a lot of information being disseminated around at a rapid rate right now. Thanks for the correction to my correction! ;)

    [quote user="politician"] Whatever it's called, has anybody yet heard the BeoLab 90 and compared it to the BeoLab 5? [/quote] I could be grossly mistaken, but based on everything I am seeing and reading the BL90 will likely be in another class entirely to the BL5. That's nearly 15 years of advancement and finally using high end drivers for you.

    [quote user="MGBGTV8"] Scanspeak illuminators that must confirm them as the very best which is thier reputation and wonder why the 5 never had them [/quote] This is a good question. With the BeoLab 90 it seems that B&O are changing course on some of their previous approaches to loudspeaker design in a big way. Curiously, someone said above that the Penta also used Scan-Speak drivers (though I don't believe in the mids), and that may partially explain why they sound so amazing after

    [quote user="John"] [quote user="Playdrv4me"] I don't see enough substance here, at least until some professional reviewers can get their hands on them or we get to hear them (and how many dealers will carry them?). The problem once again just like BL5 is that B&O seems to have thrown a bunch of drivers in a cabinet in an effort to create a wider "sweet spot" within an entire room to enjoy the music without losing details. Ok, that's fine. But there's

    LOEWE is still making TVs?? They stopped selling those in the US a decade ago, maybe longer.

    [quote user="Sal"] I just dug into the ZIP file posted below by another member, and the specs say that the drivers come from a company called Scan-Speak . Apparently, according to the specs on the now taken down webpage say that the BL90 uses drivers from the Illuminator and Revelator family from the above company. I'm sure others can glean more insignts on this info than I can, as I'm unfamiliar with the company. [/quote] Ok, if that's the case then NOW we are getting somewhere
