Guys,

I have a chance to purchase a Beomaster 900M in virtually flawless condition.

The seller is in Vancouver and doesn't take PayPal, so that poses a considerable problem.

In addition the seller is FIRM on his price of CN$300 or 203 Euros.

Is this an opportunity or rather, a great chance to say thanks but NO thanks?

I know the 900 is not a high end amp, but it is iconic.

Your opinions are greatly appreciated.

This is one where I need to act quickly. If I don't hear back by Friday mid-day, I will err on the side of caution, and pass.

My Beomaster 900 (virtually flawless) cost me £10.82.  Just saying ...

The one Guy links to would need a voltage converter.

Thank you guy, handsome 900 you have there.

The one I am (was) considering is a 900M, like the one in your ad. I probably would avoid any B&O product designed for the European market due to the voltage difference issue.

The FIRM asking price of $300 Canadian dollars is almost certainly unjustifiable, as such I plan to pass.

I have this darn Beovirus and can't stop "collecting" this stuff. As it is I have a Beomaster 1000 in for repair, now for over SIX months as my very good tech has been unable to successfully repair this item. I also have a "near dead" Beomaster 4400 that needs a complete rebuilding, so acquiring yet another amp really brings one's sanity into question. (Or lack thereof)

I plan to hold off saying no until the end of the day (Pacific time) but all considered this is something I really don't "need."

I love my 900M. But paying so much for one seems a little over the top. Wait a bit longer till you find a good cheap one.

Hi Jacques,

I just now emailed the seller that I "am unable to justify the selling cost." That's polite for over-priced.

I'll do just as you suggest, and wait.

I was asked to look for a birthday present for myself(it's tomorrow) and thought the Beomaster might be nice. Truth is the M75 speakers are MORE than enough of a present.

God I love those speakers AND their French tweeters, which are wonderful, by the way. Big Smile

Hi Jacques,

I have not seen your BM 900 thread, so you can rest easy on that one.

That said, I am now more than curious to see what it is all about.

I have emailed the seller twice and his responses have not been encouraging. Let's just say that his credibility suffered as a result.

Thank you, as always for your interest. Smile

I was half kidding about my thread influencing your decision to purchase a BM 900.

But I know how the Beovirus works: an enthusiastic testimony, a few nice pictures is all it takes to revive it when it is dormant.

We are weak and there is no cure.

Oh Jacques, that is SO true. All it takes is a subliminal message and the Beovirus takes over.

I really wish that seller had been a bit reasonable and I'd had a new addition. Not this time.

The Beovirus awaits.........
