RE: 2014 Active Setup

You could do with some speakers to go with that.

Thank You! Actually, the thread you started really helped me. I am glad that Active thread stayed on the intended course and I hope it grows much more. The system looks very simple and clean. Not many cables running around, not too many boxes and giving the kind of performance that I wanted plus a great WAF!!

Yes, very nice, congrats. 

 

The photos are very cool but could you also please do us a wider shot to see the whole setup?

Did you have a chance for any comparisons?

It looks gorgeous, WishTree! And very compact indeed.

Do you need some kind of plugs/adapters for connecting the Oppo to the BeoLabs? IIRC B&O speakers don't take regular ICs.

Very nice, Wishtree. Like the look of the quirky-shaped speakers.

B&O make RCA phono to Powerlink DIN cables to connect speakers such as the BeoPenguins to conventional preamps or devices with variable line outputs, and some third-party manufacturers such as Sounds Heavenly make aftermarket cables. The speakers have a 'line' setting for such input.

I think I also read somewhere that all future B&O speakers would also have conventional phono socket inputs.

Your setup is amazing, i love b&0 and the beolab 9s have an amazing deep bass from the 10 inch 500 watt drivers built into them. Can i ask a question in regards to your setup. Do you only get audio from blurays and CDs or do you also have audio from the tv going through the oppo then outputting through the speakers also?

Ordered some furniture for the room. Some arrived and some to come. With boxes and building up, the room now looks a lot more messy. Once I clean up, I will add some pics from couch point of view.

Sad Unfortunately no real comparisions with other brands. Genelecs were at a different place and B&O else where. No house demo either. Just bought them based on research and shop audition.

Yup! Really enjoying the minimalistic look and not wondering if the amps match speakers or not. Moving to B&O is kind of going back to school as they do things a bit differently.

Beolab 9 as well as some of the newer series have selector switch which can be set to "Line". In this mode, the amps turn on based on signal. If no signal, then they go off in a minute or so. This is very practical and easier to match with other brands. I have ordered cables from 'Sounds Heavenly' and they are really nice & professional.  Steve explained me very well about what I should buy and what I should plan for center speaker as i told him about the future plan.

It looks like the latest speakers even have direct RCA line in!

Exactly! Sounds Heavenly are very professional and helpful.
