    How to RIP WMA Lossless to BS5/BM5 on Mac.

    Hey BS5/BM5 friends.

    I'v use Mac the past 1/2 year, and like to rip CD's in WMA lossless to my BS5 because of tagging and since I'v don that the past 3 years. Since there is only BeoConnect to Mac, I'v got this solution if anybody misses that option.

    1. I'v installed program "Parallels" on my Mac. It's a vitual mashine program that you can run in Mac either Coherent or as a open "window" in Mac.

    2. Installed WIN7 in parallels.

    3. Installed Beoplayer in WIN7.

    That way I "boot" WIN7 and Beoplayer on my iMac as a regular program that I can close again when I'm not ripping CD's. 

    Works nicely I think. Now we only need B&O to improve Beoplayer on a lot of areas, but it seem like B&O are happy about it!

    BS5/BM5, BL3, AVANT 32", BL8000

    Re: How to RIP WMA Lossless to BS5/BM5 on Mac.

    Hi HVD,

    I don't practice my BM5 with the Apple system, i use win7 and his windows media player V11 and rip the cd's in WMA lossless. The files created are installed in the BM5;  i don't use the Beoplayer for ripping ! I avoid to start the Beoplayer in starting my computer because all the connections with the BM5 are not totally made !
