    [quote user="beojeff"] Music that is ripped from a CD requires quite a bit of tag editing. Even the online tagging services that we have make quite a lot of mistakes that must be cleaned up. Also, the current tagging services do not fit the need of providing high resolution cover art for the vast majority of a music collection. Before I owned

    [quote user="Stan"] You don't have a computer? [/quote] Why would you think that ? B&O could have adressed two different types of customers: - Solution for computer enthusiasts: Easy synchronisation like Apple TV or full access with all media formats, open interfaces - Solution for non-technical customers: Integrated CD slot that digitizes

    [quote user="stefan"] [quote user="erg4000"] Stefan, what made you choose the Tvix 6500 in place of the Mac Mini ? E. [/quote] E., ... The mac mini is back in my home office connected to a Mermaid monitor and does a nice job as a computer and music player with Beoplayer - using it to rip CDs and transfer music to BS5 and movies to

    [quote user="beojeff"] B&O is planning on having a video access similar to tivx installed on future B&O tvs. Until then, B&O is having dealers recommend that clients set up a wired network and use the tivx 6500 for video media. This could explain why B&O didn't focus on the Beomaster 5 for video media. Still, I don't

    [quote user="jk1002"] WMA beeing the only choice for gapless playing is just one example. Just doesn't fly when you are on a Mac. [/quote] AFAIK gapless playing is possible in iTunes too. Apple lossless plays on Windows Media Player as well. I don't see a reason to exclude Apple Lossless in the BS 5.

    [quote user="stefan"] I managed to play movies, even HD movies, on BM5. You can read about that in older threads here in he BS5 forum. [/quote] Thanks for this useful information. I'll go through those threads. [quote user="stefan"] BS5 is a music player, just with audio functions N.MUSIC and N.RADIO. So I don`t think LaCinema

    [quote user="TWG"] now that my BS 5 works like it should, I simply love it. It is a joy to touch the aluminium wheels and simply to look at it. It is so decent and nothing of this cheapo plastic looks like all the 99,- Euro 1000 Watt Surround sound systems that everybody wants ;-) ... Cheap mediaplayers like the one mentioned above are only

    [quote user="stefan"] You will be able to navigate with Beo4 as you could with BM1. Should be in the next update [/quote] Too bad, I thought it's possible already. Is this upgrade scheduled already ? Will we be able to connect BeoMaster 5 over wifi ? [quote user="stefan"] Sorry, you are wrong, I wouldn`t call it a "reduced

    The Beosound 5 has a very nice design, made of precious materials and with e beautiful user interface. Practically I'd prefer to use my Beo4 to navigate through the menus on my Beovision 4, like I do now with Apple TV. The heart of this concept, the BeoMaster 5 is where potential was wasted. It's simply a reduced media box with a harddisk that
