    Connecting Macbook Air + Iphone 4 to BL3?

    Hi Beoworlders!

     

    I am currently watching my mailbox for my new (and first B&O product) Beolab 3s, and prior to get them in house i need to prepare how to connect them to my Macbook and Iphone. Have heard that its quite simple setup with the Apple Airport Express.

     

    -Have anyone tried it before? can i shuffle between macbook and iphone as the music source? or can it only be set up with one of them at the time?

    -Do i need any cross-over cables to connect the bl3s to the AExpress?

    -How do I set up iTunes to play wireless? can it be played wireless?

     

    Thanks for answering! Cant wait for postman pat! :D

    similar, and so have others

    yes

    each iDevice can "talk" wirelessly to the AE, I presume that last one to talk will gain control (that is how my ATV tends to work)

    you will need a mini-jack stereo splitter and then these cables from B&O:

    ...To a non-Bang & Olufsen system:
    Use a special adapter with an ordinary phono/RCA plug in one end, and a DIN-plug in the other (optional accessory, available from your Bang & Olufsen retailer). Remember to set the SETUP switch to LINE.

    good question ! I thought it was a preferences setting, but I can't find it now - look for a small arrow on the bottom right hand corner of the iTunes window - clicking it should present you with a choice of the Macbook's speakers or the AE

    yes

     

    First B&O (1976) was a Beogram 1500 ... latest (2011) change has been to couple the BL11 with the BL6Ks *sounds superb*
