I have a M75 speaker that is "dead," and I need to get inside to try to find the reason there is no sound. The problem is I can't figure out how to GET inside and I don't' want to break anything guessing. I tried from the front and the back, no dice, and the manual wasn't instructive.

So how do to get into this speaker?

Even if I didn't have this dead speaker I still need to remove the woofers and mid-ranges for re-foaming. So how do I do it?

Thanks.

Hi Jacques,

I decided based on your enthusiatic response to put on the GOLD STANDARD of records, Bette Midler's "For the Girls" album on my remote controlled Beogram 4004 with its NOS MMC20CL cartridge and see what these M75 speakers can really do.

Soren: I hope you are paying attention as I am listening to "your girl!"

Wow, these speakers are amazing, truly remarkable, and clearly MUCH better than expected. The realism is outstanding....... must be those French tweeters! Smile

Of course the M75's are the junior version of the M100's, so I am tantalized at thought they would be even more impressive..... and of course, the Holy Grail, MS150's.

Isn't it great to have a goal? Something to look forward to? You bet it is guys!

In the mean time I could not be happier with these M75 speakers, from the bookmarked veneers to the magnificent sound quality. Yes - thumbs up

Jeff

I know the feeling.

The last time I was so excited (B&O speaker wise) was when I got my beloved M70s. Truly amazing speakers, in heavy everyday use chez Jacques. There was a very good review in Hi-Fi News some time earlier this year about them by Tim Jarman, and I can say I fully agree with him. The M75s being B&Os next effort after the M70s, they should indeed be something quite special.

I envy you.

Jacques,

It is official, I am "over the moon" for these speakers. The flawless upper range, the accurate mid-rang, and that delightful DEEP all encompassing bass.

While you sir, are the quintessential gentleman.

Jeff I can understand your enthusiasm, I feel the same with my M70s ( as Jacques) I have started using Bette as my "test" LP.

I listened to Søren Hammers MS150s i Aarhus DK, and I think maybe I can squeeze them in somewhere, but as far as I remember the deep bas wasnt any better than the M70s, but I may be wrong. It will take a very good pair of speakers to beat M 70s or M75.

Just got the latest Chuck Berry LP " Chuck" in the door yesterday, some tracks I never heard before, good quality vinyl, recommend it 

Keep them coming Jeff, as the Saint I enjoy your posts

Why thank you Peter, you are most kind.

These speakers have been a bit of a challenge but with the amazing BeoHelp, it has proven to be more than worthwhile.

When I agreed to purchase these speakers I had NO idea how remarkable they really, really, are.

Hi Soren,

M100's or even better still MS 150's ARE my goal, but at US$151 I couldn't resist these M75's. Good God, I am so glad I didn't! (If I ever find another pair, I am buying them sans doubt.)

The bass on these M75's is hard to describe, but it is full, complete, AND realistic. Soren, you know me, if I turn the bass down, it has GOT to be good!

Now as for the Chuck Berry LP, could you provide a bit more detail? I love Chuck Berry and would really like this new album.

Thanks for the kind words. I know I "frustrate" you from time to time as I lack your electronic talent. But you know we share the same enthusisam for B&O products.

Soren, I probably don't need to say a word, but thank you for the BL/BM 5000. You might not be surprised to hear that I have not used them once in 3 days due to the M75's. Stick out tongue

Jeff

OK guys,

This begs the question, empirically what IS the difference between the M70 speaker and the M75? If one owned both, could you tell the difference? And why, please?

Inquiring minds and all that .....
