  • Re: Beogram 6500 and nosie

    Roger - I think I've got this and I could be wrong but based on what you're telling us here (and much respect for your ~50 years of vinyl exp) Here's what I think - The new cantilever and stylus are longer than OEM and therefor the VTA is way off (not a fun thing to mess w/ on a B&O) Can u check that when the cart is down that (unconventionally - not that the arm is parallel to the base) that the NCL needle is nearly vertical? If it's raked back then every imperfection will be

    Thanks for the info Roger. Not really sure why you'd be hearing so much surface noise - I have a couple of non-modified MMC2's on my Beograms and have never noticed anything out of the ordinary as compared to my hi-end reference turntable and phono stage. Perhaps it has something to do with the stylus profile that was used? Is the recommended tracking force the same as the original? Good call trying the cartridge on the 5500 - At least you'll have an A/B comparison to verify the results

    Hi Roger - I have a couple of questions to help narrow things down. First of all - What do you have the 6500 plugged in to? - I'm assuming that it's not a B&O product since you are using an RCA adapter?

If you plug this into a phono connection, the sound will

    Martin - Any idea what the logic is (or why) that instructs the doors to close at power off even if they're already closed? Seems an odd function. PS - I've been lurking here for years and years and have always read your posts (and others) with much interest. Now that I finally subscribed I plan to participate/ contribute more. Take care Greg

    David - I just checked mine and the motors do spin up at power down prior to the rely clicking off. I've had a few of these units and they've all done the same. That said, if your unit is currently working as it is, I don't think I'd be concerned with it. Take care Greg
