    Set up a wireless connection

    • Set up your audio/video product wirelessly with a pair of Beolab 17 speakers or make a wireless surround sound system.

    Power Link, Toslink or Line-in

    • Examples of connections. If you choose a cabled setup, you can use Power Link, Toslink (TM) or Line-in cables for connection between your speakers and your audio/video product. If you use Toslink cables, you must make a daisy chain setup as illustrated. This is also possible with Power Link cables. Be aware that Toslink cables should not be bent more than a radius of 30 mm, since this can cause disturbances in the sound performance.

      edge of the speaker to the wall.
