    Beosound Overture through a Beomaster 5500

    Just a quick question.  i have an old beomaster 5500 amp with RL65 speakers, i have been offered an Overture system and was wondering if i could link it through my amplifier so that it would work with my redline speakers or would i just have to go out and buy active speakers for this to work.

     

    Thanks

    You could hook it up with a din to din lead i.e from Aux on the overture to take in on the BM5500 - but you would get problems with using the remote as both would respond to Radio etc so I would imagine you would connect aux on the Overture to CD on the BM5500 and use the beomaster radio and the overture as a CD player - the other way if you are just using the BM as an amp may be to get Powerlink to Din Lead - I'm not sure as I've not done it but seem to recall that there are Pre-Amp to Power Amp sockets on the Beomaster - so in theory you could take the Powerlink Line out from the Overture to the Power Amp in Sockets on the Beomaster and use it that way but you would lose any other functionality in the beomaster

    The other option would be to replace the 5500 with a Beolink amp - they are cheap on ebay (upto £150) and this would drive your speakers from the powerlink sockets on the Overture. Or more expensive to purchase beolab speakers.

    Thanks for your response

    I never thought about using the Beolink amp as in all honesty, i dont really have a clue about the Beolink system (other than i know that you can link up various devices in different rooms etc) i think i will look through ebay and grab one, i think for the functionality of the overture through my Beo4 remote, this set up will work better and also, the beolink amp will be easier to hide.

     

    Thanks again
