  • Re: Beolab 9 vs B&W 802d - 805d

    [quote user="mbee"]With Beolab 9, if you don't win sonically (not so sure...), you are certain that you get the best from them at every volume due to active amplification tailor-made to the speakers and, maybe as important, active crossovers.[/quote] There is little doubt that technically speaking, active beats passive, all other things

  • Re: Beolab 9 vs B&W 802d - 805d

    [quote user="DirtyDiana"] Good point,but a collegue of mine recently placed a 700W Pass X350.5 with his 802D and still did not get the result he expected on many fronts in an average size living room.It is rare to find a BL9/5 owner seeking out more of the same and most are just happy with them which speaks volumes. The other issue is the

    [quote user="wonderfulelectric"] B&O uses paper and cloth materials for speaker diaphragms which are superior to the diamond or the metal materials in terms of self damping/ time distortion. The fact that the Beolab 9s are sloped at an angle too place a part. B&O has a reputation of sounding crisp and incessant in the higher registers

    [quote user="Alex"] Apples and Oranges sonically. The B&Ws focus more on time-domain distortion (transparency, resolution etc...) while the BeoLabs are more about tonality, off-axis response etc... I wouldn't really want to say one is better than the other, although the 802D really is especially superb... [/quote] I'd generally

  • Re: Rear speakers with Beolab 5s

    [quote user="Alex"] Having broken down a lot of surround sound mixes, you'd be surprised what often gets sent to the rear speakers! 70% of the time there isn't really much going on below 150 Hz (ie, not much bass at all), but occasionally you get really full-range content! House of Flying Daggers springs to mind. When you play the

  • Re: No more Beocom 6000 and/or Beocom 2?

    [quote user="tournedos"] I'm sure the phones will be axed the moment they don't create enough revenue. Dunno how this applies to B&O's market coverage in general, but in Finland and I believe most of Scandinavia landline phones are disappearing fast. You can usually babble half a day over the mobile for the monthly base fee

    [quote user="Peter "] BeoCom 2 is on page 36-37 and BeoCom 6000/1 is on page 32-33. You are correct there are no specs for these or the BeCom 4, which is also in the catalogue - just those for the BeoCom 5. No doubt the details, as with most of the useful specs, are in the website.

  • Re: Bluray and B&O TV connection

    [quote user="mbee"] No problem at all : decode the DTS HD with the BD player into PCM, and use HDMI to feed the BV... You will have the full quality signal, as decoding DTS HD to PCM is done perfectly by the player, doing that with a B&O TV would not improve anything (compare that as unzipping a file : the result is the same exact digital

  • Bluray and B&O TV connection

    I've been burning the midnight oil trying to figure out if there is a way to get around the lack of DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby True HD decoding in B&O's TV sets re the inbuilt digital surround sound module. On the specifications page of the Beovision 8-40 & 10-40 HDMI is mentioned only for video input - digital sound input is SPDIF

  • Re: new TV this year

    The Big thing currently missing in all of B&O's TV's, considering they can be used as a processor for AV duties via an inbuilt module, is compatibility with the latest Dolby and DTS Home Theatre codecs - i.e. Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio. Considering the audible and beneficial increase in audio performance of these lossless compression
