  • Re: Beosound 8 review

    [quote user="Electrified"] [quote user="Alex"]Agreed that it's a load of nonsense when it comes to cables, CD players and other electronics, but I completely disagree with you when it comes to speakers! I've heard it, I know it in side-by-side comparisons, it is definitely there.[/quote] Yes, and despite remembering what

    [quote user="Electrified"] As for running-in in general, they also have other stuff doing that on Whathifi, you know, stuff like cables, cd-players and on and on.

    [quote user="Puncher"] Sorry, but I'm in the Stanley Unwin camp here! While I appreciate that trying to describe the way a system sounds in words is very difficult, it can only be helped by specifiying somewhere in the publication how they define terms like "Timing" & "Integration". If they can define them then

    [quote user="Electrified"] From that review: [quote] Timing is acceptable, integration throughout the frequency range is smooth, and there’s good dynamic headroom on tap, too.[/quote] What a load of nonsensical audiophilic non-terms. "Timing" - oh, really? "Integration through the frequency range" - Come again? "dynamic

  • Re: Beolab 5 upgrade from beolab 9 questions

    [quote user="BeoFab"] I have read a thread about the Beolab 9's lack a little in the mids. Is that correct? [/quote] Not when they're set up correctly. I used to find BeoLab 9s actually sounded better when toed-in (which is against what you would expect from an ALT speaker). Try both. I've heard them sounding full and correct across

  • Re: BeoLab 9 review

    [quote user="nmartin771"] interesting research from technical university of Denmark Sound Radiation from a Loudspeaker Cabinet using the Boundary Element Method [/quote] That's quite interesting! I didn't know that speaker cabinet behaviour was non-linear as the volume changed, but I suppose it makes sense!

  • Re: My first B&O

    My 2c - don't go for a B&O turntable. With your sort of budget, you can't really afford to buy a lemon. A B&O deck is likely to at least need a service if it hasn't had one recently. Having heard one recently, I was extremely impressed with the Rega RP1. They cost around £225, which is a fairly smart amount of your budget to

  • Re: Beolab 1 + BC9500

    [quote user="Pattabhiraman"] thanks very much indeed. it is attributable to bad recordings. however if i recall my memory correctly one of the B&o promotion actually mentioned of hooking a MP3 player to a BL3/BL5. does that mean that these speakers are better equipped to overcome immensely compressed files? cheers pattabhi [/quote] Absolutely

  • Re: Besosound 8 > connect an active sub preferably wireless...??

    [quote user="xegoon"] Or set the iPxx equalizer... [/quote] With the greatest of respect, this is something I would personally always avoid. The iPod/Apple EQ distorts really quite awfully - terribly badly designed. Would seem silly to spend £850 on a sound system, then distort the signal through one of the worst EQs in any consumer

  • Re: Beolab 1 + BC9500

    Not quite sure what you mean. An audio input has no way of being designed 'to handle MP3'. If you mean will that system be able to show up the difference between MP3 and Lossless, then the answer is yes. In fact, most systems will show up the difference over longer listening sessions...
