  • Re: Dear santa... How about releasing a new LP player? With Multiroom...

    [quote user="peterafox"]The double arm LP player is not new. My parents used to have a Sharp system with double arms which could do repeat, random and even skip tracks by detecting the breaks on the LP surface. And this was early 80's. [/quote] I remember them well - they also did a music centre version - they were not very good - no record support!

  • Re: Dear santa... How about releasing a new LP player? With Multiroom and WiSA?

    Maybe you should suggest this to the Create team and see what they come up with! The problem with LPs is that they need proper cleaning and need turning over half way through. Add in the fact that unless you have a tangential arm that really works, the centre tracks have a fair degree of distortion and you are reliant on an accurate RIAA curve and it makes decent digital files seem very attractive - and this is from a multiple Beogram owner!

  • Re: Beogram 3500

    Could it be that the play button is simply sticking so it is set to continually repeat?

  • Re: Repair of Beocenter 2002 amp and tape deck

    Tricky - the turntable is based on a Beogram but the rest of the device is Japanese and the amplifier uses a Hybrid chip rather than individual parts. It is difficult to find the parts required and the end result is probably not worth the cost. Instead, why not look for a replacement - will probably cost about the same and you can upgrade - If you are keen on a music centre that plays cassettes, LPs and radio, the Beocenter 700X cannot be beaten. If you would rather had a facility for CD, the Beocenter

  • Re: Future Sounds - 2017

    Very practical - I seem to remember that one of the concepts behind B&O speakers was that they should fit into a normal room. An ideal speaker would take up no space at all - just use an electromagnetic pulse - a holographic speaker if you will. That is why the Beolab 5000 was good - it just didn't sound as good as the others in the range at the time (not that I wish to open up old arguments!)

  • Re: BeoVision Avant 85 Picture Defect

    Awful response from B&O - I was about to buy a new TV - it now will not be a B&O one.

  • Re: sound question: rx2 w/beomaster 2400 & s75 speakers

    My original system was a Beogram 1902, Beomaster 2400 and S75s (after a few months!) You should have plenty of bass. The fact that the tape and radio are fine suggests a problem with the cartridge or the RIAA in the 2400. I suggest the former is more likely. You could do with trying another turntable or receiver in the system. Where do you live as if another member close by we might be able to provide a comparator.

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

    The CDX will not be remote control. But if hinge ok and working after fix the circuit board connections(almost all working with have had this done) these are bullet proof and sound great - often described as more analogue sounding - warmer than the later CD players.

  • Re: Challenge for the brave - anyone up for it?!

    It is indeed the Littmann 4100WS - I have replaced it by the 3200 which has some advantages but the sound quality is not as good - the 4100 has a loose connection between the headset and the mid section - the later model misses out the mid section and obviously uses more tubing. Thanks for the kind offer Peter but I think the customs would probably mean that this is simply not viable. B&O are mentioned in the development of the 4000, 4100 and 3000 but are not mentioned in the 3200 - must be after

  • Re: Beogram 3000 (type 5228) runs fast

    Better record support for starters. The SP cartridges are also excellent - my best deck is the Thorens Beogram 3000 which uses a 12" version of the B&O arm and an SP2 - the record support is much better again and the bass is very extended in comparison to most Beograms. The suspension is clearly not the same so it is mounted on a rigid wall bracket.
