I am trying to use a pair of both Beolab 6000 and Beolab 8000 with an Arcam Solo Movie 5.1 one-box DVD receiver and am getting hum through the speakers when the Arcam is put into standby. The speakers are connected via phono (line) inputs. I would also like to use a Beolab 2 subwoofer - which only has a 8-pin DIN input. Will this work and, if so what pins should I use?
You may try to not connect the ground pin of the main cable of Arcam Solo.
Using a 2 poles adaptor is the simple way.
Try to find hum is still there.
And using better RCA cables, like twisted pair, quad wires cable is better.
Because, it is long-run (over 2 metre long), EMI and RFI are easy to enter the signal path.
Hi , i just saw ur mail although I do not have the solution to this but I am keen to know how you are using these speakers as I too have identical beolab 6000 and beolab 9000. I was thinking of connecting them to a preamp. What do u suggest ? Pls guide

Maybe a firmware (that's the running program) problem I'd contact Arcam, if your Solo has a USB input they should be able to send you a firmware update which you can download to a USB stick and then upload to the Solo (instructions will be in the manual). If not your local Arcam dealer should be able to do it for you Arcam warranties are 3 to 5 years. Don't now if they'll edit this but also try AV Forums online. good luck
If the hum is a low note continuous hum, its at 'mains' frequency. The power cables to the unit (or inside it) are getting too close to the cables that carry sound signals to the center speaker. The mains power naturally hums and if mains wires are near to audio kit wires they pick up this sound and play it through their system/speakers. Check the wires to and from it make sure the connections are good and firm. Seperate these wires by at least one inch from any power cables, use tape to hold them down and away from each other.
Depending on the volume level and how many speakers you are driving factor into how the amp will react. Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! then we must look at the audio output stage, if the semiconductors are getting to hot, the satety circuits will cause a shutdown, if you run a pair of speakers the amp will run cooler, if you recently added more speakers that would explain the shutdown, if not! there is a problem in the audio output transistors and ic's that will need to be dealt with.
Does your sonus system has pre-out? you can directly connect one single rca cable to each output into the speakers. make sure, each speakers is set to left and right each channel. these switches can be found above the rca input of the beolab 8000 next to the power link input. You have to understand that by using powerlink source cable is ideal only for other bang&olufsen equipments......however, there are other options, if u don't have a pre-amp output of your amplifier, you can also modify the speaker out of the amp, thru a conversion cable available from bang & olufsen, with an rca cable left and right channel, without interfering with the powerlink.
