  • 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? Good luck! Greg

  • 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

  • Re: Beolab 4000 questions

    Nigel - The differences between MK1 ad MK2 are much easier to identify than serial (product) numbers MK1 has an RCA line level input on the back in addition to powerlink, MK2 does not, it's powerlink only. MK1 has the illuminated power switch on the front of the cabinet (red/green) MK2 is a light only, not a switch. MK1 is type 6638 MK2 is type 6644 The product number is on the front of the speaker behind the grill (fret) beneath the woofer. Also keep in mind that MK1 is a traditional class A

  • Re: Beolab penta mk3 vs beocenter 9500

    Stevie - you're specifically going to need to connect the speakers with MK2 Powerlink cables for the displays to work. Hopefully that's all it is. Good luck! Greg

  • Re: Beolab 2500 questions

    I agree with the stack ranking above. In my opinion, the BL4000s are quite remarkable for what they are. I also like the fact that you have so many color options and they also can be easily wall mounted. I actually have 2 pairs at the moment - One is the MK1 which employs a class A/B amplifier and the Mk2 which uses a class D IcePower unit. Unlike some here, I actually prefer the sound of the MK2 version but the MK1 has the advantage of having both Powerlink and RCA line in whereas the MK2 is Powerlink

  • Shout out to Steve at Sounds Heavenly- Thanks!

    Steve - Several weeks ago you posted a thread about using Beolab's for live performance. I must admit that your thread inadvertently inspired me. As a long time musician that used to have an enormous home studio that is now living in a condo, I've been missing the ability to throw together a quick jam when the urge arises. Thanks to your inspiration, I now have a micro-studio set up with all my guitars, keyboards and DAW running through an extra pair of BL 4000's that weren't being
