    Re: The 'Dark Side'.....


    Interesting thread..

    I use Apple TV's and Airport express to my B&O gear in all my rooms. I listen less and less to CDs and watch less DVD's, usually rip it all and put it on a big RAID share in my network instead, much more practical. 

    Interesting indeed. I find I am moving backwards toward the CD and away from iPod/computer sources. So much so, I've been heavily considering a new DAC for my BeoGram 4500CD...

    Additionally, I've almost completely moved away from video entirely!!!

    Re: The 'Dark Side'.....

    I've added a Technics 1506 Reel-to-Reel player to my setup. Works excellently together with the Beolab 5000.

    I've also placed a Revelation M phono-stage from Graham Slee between my Beogram 3000 and the Beolab 5000. The Revelation M has different EQ-curves, in addition to RIAA, which I can use when listening to records from the 50s, made without RIAA-EQ.

    At the moment only Non B&O stuff I have for entertainment is my Mac Mini (music library) and a Topfield HD digibox. (No point using the BV10's since it won't work with Pay channels in Finland!)

    My dark side include

    E-machines comp. for only music, but as Evan going back to my CDs.

    LG 42" flat screen, Onkyo TX-NR 708, LG Blu-ray, 2 x LG 32", 3 CD players (Philips/Sony), connected to vintage

    2 x Ipods not working, 2 x DVD players not in use, 4 x video recorders not in use, one of them can convert from Europe to US system.

    4 x Panasonic cordless phones, had to put my 3 x Beocom 6000 in store as they interfered with my wireless.



    Beosound 3000, BL 4000, BL 8000, BG 2404,BG 5000, BG CD50, Beocord 5000, BM 901, BM 2400, BM 4000, BV S45, BV 3702. There is nothing we cannot do, but a lot of things we don't want to do!!

    Re: The 'Dark Side'.....

    Silver side (in the household):


    • iPhones X 3
    • iPods X 3
    • MacBooks X 3 (one an Air)
    • MacMini 
    • Apple TV
    • iPad


    All acquired in the last 3 years - no wonder Apple's stock price is so good :-)

    Dark side:


    • a Samsung monitor attached to the MacMini for display of LinkPlayer as I now have the BV8's HDMI (thinking of an Altona 4X1) dedicated to the ATV2
    • some old kit I should throw out such as Sony portable cassette players, Sony portable radios
    • a combined VCR/DVD player/transcorder that we just bought (oh boy did that hurt) because we saw "The Iron Lady" and the Fabric Selector got misty eyed about transferring our family memories from VHS to DVD
    • Sainsbury DVD (will probably go since we have the combo unit which is hopefully multi-region (note to self, check this!)))
    • Wii
    • PS2
    • and FoxTel STB Laughing


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

    Re: The 'Dark Side'.....

    Non B&O?

    my only devices are 2 x Bose Sounddock portable for the iPhone/Pod.
    This is unbeatable in terms of size/sound/battery life.
