  • Re: B & O BeoGram GR3000, 5231 turntable belt replacement

    Hi there - I've had good experience working with LPGEAR - Not only do they stock most belts but can also make a custom belt for you if you give them the measurements. In my case I used a string to measure the exact belt path and they custom made a belt for me and sent it out in just a couple of days. The speed adjustment issue may be unrelated to the belt but I can recommend LPGEAR without reservation Good luck Greg

  • Re: 4500 display mounth which 2 sided tape to mounth

    The absolute best product that I've found and used with much success is servo tape. It's literally used for mounting servos in remote control vehicles. Any online or retail hobby shop carries it. It's much thinner than most double sided tape and is about 10 times as sticky and basically a permanent solution. I used it on a couple of beocenter 9500s that I restored and it works perfectly. Trust me on this one! Greg

  • Re: Wanted: White 6500 MCP

    Hi Jay - While not a 6500, here's a 5500 in white that is identical other than the model number. I've been considering it to go with my white BM6500, but I have an MCP6500 that I've already serviced and don't feel like bothering swapping the parts out. This has been for sale a long time so you could probably send them a reasonable offer. By the way - I've been looking for a white MCP6500 for years and haven't come across one in that time that was in good condition or for sale

  • Re: HELP! How can i connect a 6500 receiver & RX2 turntable or Control Panel 5500? CD player advice too.

    Adam - The Beomaster 6500 has a built in RIAA preamp so if you want to use your RX2, all you need to do is get the right cables. Otherwise you could put it back in storage and get yourself a matching Beogram for your newer 6500 system and enjoy full integration. I have the BM6500 and really like it a lot - In my case I'm running a couple pairs of powered speakers w/ DIN cables, but adapter cables for your speakers are really easy to come by. Good choice on a good system. Greg

    Strange then as the specs here are misleading and actually suggest that the RIAA is built into the BM6500 https://www.beoworld.org/prod_details.asp?pid=359 " RIAA amplifier built-in (8001245) " Guess it was an add on and not standard in all of the units then? Greg

  • Re: Beocenter 9000 tape deck audio difference

    While I've not owned a 9000 personally, it sounds like the bias is out of adjustment (tape head alignment) which is usually adjusted easily via a spring-loaded screw just below the tape head. Best adjusted while listening to the tape while it's playing- Assuming it's not the recording to dirty head as Martin points out. Greg

  • Re: Can a Subwoffer be Ceiling Mounted? (Beolab 16)

    Stoobie - I understand the desire to center the sub between the speakers for aesthetic reasons, but just be aware that you will typically get the best bass response and integration with your main speakers with the sub place in or near a corner of your room. Before you commit to all the logistics involved in mounting the sub you might consider trying it in different placements on the floor first and see what sounds best to you - If you can, try it on the floor between the speakers below where you

  • Re: Spare part for Beomaster 4500

    Came across this and it looks inexpensive (although that depends on where you need it shipped I suppose) - Maybe you could contact the seller and see if they will sell you just the part you need? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bang-Olufsen-Beomaster-4500-Receiver-FOR-PARTS-OR-REPAIR-/282299844687?hash=item41ba61c84f:g:JCsAAOSwEzxYW9aT Good luck!

  • Re: Generic speaker replacement

    Jeff - Pretty cool that you're hoping to restore these speakers for sentimental reasons. Along with sourcing the correct size to find the current speaker cabinets without modifications, there are a few other things that you'll probably need to think about as well to select appropriate replacement drivers. Along with size, you'll want to make sure that the new drivers have the same (or as nearly the same as possible) Same impedance (4Ohm, 8Ohm, etc) Same frequency range (80Hz-5KHz or say

  • Re: Looking for CD player alternatives for Beosystem 3000... Help!

    Anthony - All the datalink versions should work and as far as looks go, the beogram CD3000, 3300, 3500 are all good options. I'm curious as to why the 4500 didn't work for you - it should have - perhaps it was faulty? Keep in mind, that none of these units will play anything but factory redbook CD"s reliably, if at all - I've had some luck w/ CDRs in my 3300 and my 9500 but never could really count on it. I found the 3300 to be the most reliable of the several CDPs that I've
