Nine years ago, I bought a Beogram 6000 from a fellow member on here, with a view to creating a quadraphonic vinyl system. This wasn't practical at my old home, so the turntable went into storage with my dealer, spending nearly a decade unused in an unheated warehouse.

When my dealer and I put the system together at my new home, I was a little concerned that the turntable might have seized up after so long. Not a bit of it. It played perfectly the first time, using an unplayed, boxed MMC6000 cartridge I managed to purchase on eBay.

I'm currently listening to vinyl through my BeoLab 90s, and it sounds wonderful.

I bought a Beograd 7000 turntable and CD7000 manufactured in early 1990s when I was in short trousers and even that amazes me. 1970s gear still working now; well that is deeply impressive. Somehow I have a feeling the do t make ‘em like they used to.
