If you read the Technical Sound Guide for BeoLab 90, you’ll see a long list of features. However, not all of these features are available yet in the current software, since we’re still in the process of developing and testing some of them.
The table below lists all of the features that are described in the Technical Sound Guide, and shows which of these are currently available in the latest software release. I’ve tried to make this list follow the table of contents of the Guide – just to make it a little easier to track. Note that there are additional features that are not included in the Technical Sound Guide (e.g. Network capabilities) that are not in the list below.
Please do not bother asking when a feature will be released. I am not permitted to estimate future release dates. All I will do is update this table as features are made available. Newly-available features in the latest software release will be indicated in red.
This list is not official – which is my way of saying that I may have made some errors… If you have questions about details or you find mistakes, please comment on this posting.

- Although this has been a significant software upgrade, most of the new work that has been implemented have been either “behind the scenes”, or features that are not part of the audio controls (e.g. network capabilities).
