OK - so a local guy is selling a set of Bang and Olufsen gear for a good price.

The set includes:

1- BeoVision-4 65" HD Plasma TV
2- BeoSystem-3 Dedicated AV Processor
3- BeoCenter-2 DVD/CD Player + FM/AM Tuner
4- BeoLab-7.2 Active Center Speaker
5- BeoLab-5 Active Loudspeakers
6- BeoLab-8000 Active Loudspeakers
7- Beo-4 Remote Controller

I just plan to use the speakers and get rid of the rest.

I have a Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K projector, Marantz SR7007 AV/ Receiver and Marantz UD7007 Blu-Ray Player.

Somebody told me that Bang and Olufsen speakers only work within their own system / equipment..does that mean that I can't use Beolab speakers with my current setup?

Not sure if BeoSystem-3 will support my Sony 4K projector?

The B&O speakers are active, or self-powered. If they come equipped with an RCA jack - to accept a signal only - you should be OK to hook them up to the pre-outputs on your AVR.

The product page doesn't say anything about 4K support, so if the manual also has nothing to say on it, contact B&O to find out.

Where are you located? I may be able to help if you're nearby...

I guess also, is the deal good enough to fiddle around with compatibility?
