It is good but with the B&W it's really... really... really... GOOD!!! Trust me! Besides you can't compare those two with just listening to the videos, you should hear the B&W in person.Take a listen and compare with the B& W video.
If you set it up right you can great results. "Bass heads are on their own!!! The companies tune these systems like boom boxes not like sound systems. It is a shame and the
EQ is not extensive enough to fix all the choices they make.
I agree to it sounds very good, and that's without any tweaking. I honestly have little idea where to start making adjustments to improve the sound. I understand everyone's listening tastes are different, however I'd greatly appreciate any suggested settings or starting points. TIA!If you set it up right you can great results.
Yes and no. There is more to sound quality than just frequency range - although that is certainly important. Phase coherence is toward the top of the list. If the B&W system improves phase coherence (which in theory it should do given the processing being done and the geometry of the speakers), then it will sound better even to folks with much-attenuated high-frequency sensitivity.There are some hearing tests on the web which can check if you have hearing loss.
If you can't pass the mosquito test, I don't see why extra high quality is worth it.
haha, nicetibits...that was my post..lol lets see..if i can find out.
No they do not. One thing to be aware of if considering the B&O is that (at least when I ordered in Sept) the CD player can NOT be deleted from the system. There isn't a ton of storage in the XC90 and the CD player eats up the majority of the front console.Do either the standard or B&O systems include a hard drive for storing your own music via CD upload?

Using the USB is much easier. Once the music is on the stick, there is virtually no difference between a physical HD and the USB. Well, the HD can malfunction at some point and be very expensive/complicated to replace. A stick costs virtually nothing and can be replaced in a matter of seconds.Question on the XC90 sound systems - Do either the standard or B&O systems include a hard drive for storing your own music via CD upload?
