  • Re: Misleading sales

    [quote user="9 LEE"] [quote user="moxxey"] It is confusing, but would it really matter? If BL5s can be sold individually but can be connected to perform as a pair, would having two different serials affect the performance for an end user? [/quote] So, if you received a brand spanking new car, with zero use, the little bobbles still on the tyres, plastic still on the drivers seat and that brand new car smell... apart from the engine, which had been used previously for four and

  • Re: Misleading sales

    I would have checked the serial numbers before I bought them. The serial number/age question has been asked on here on numerous occasions so if you buy without checking it is your own fault. I trust nobody, even B&O dealers!

  • Re: Beogram 6500 turntable seems to drag

    First, make sure that the transit screws are fully unwound. The drag is probably caused by the suspension springs sagging a bit with age or because they have been locked in the transit position for a long time. They are adjustable via 3 screws which are visible when you remove the platter and the serrated rear cover. The platter should sit about 2mm above the surrounding body of the deck.. I would recommend that you contact member Dillen who will be happy to supply a new set of drive belts which

  • Re: Beogram 5500 (Type 4950): the turntable hangs down on one side - record grinds on chassis

    The first thing I would check is that there is nothing wedged between the sprung chassis and the base plate of the deck. I have found several old cartridges under there on various B&O type 59xx decks, over the years.

  • Re: Damaged Beogram 6500 - help!

    The hinges are fixed to the base by set screws that are inserted into threaded inserts moulded into the base material. The plastic surrounding the inserts breaks and the insert becomes loose. Is this why your hinges are loose?

  • Re: Damaged Beogram 6500 - help!

    This exactly the area that I am attempting to describe in my post. It is impossible to expose any more of the broken part without completely wrecking the deck. One suggestion that worked for me on a number of occasions is to buy a cosmetically challenged and cheap Beogram 5005 or similar brushed aluminium deck and build your 6500 parts into it. NB All type 59xx decks are the same under the skin (some early examples do not have fixing points for the RIAA preamplifier) .

    Close the slot in the pin slightly with a pair of pliers and wedge the pin on the screwdriver!

    They are designed to be used flat on a shelf or cupboard. The CD player mechanism is not fixed in position but is merely floating on springs and will not work in the vertical position. Mounting brackets were designed by third parties to mount the 9500 at about 30 degrees to the horizontal but were not that popular.

    Your vendor did not pack the turntable correctly for transit, this is common with these turntables and is not the fault of the shipper. I suggest that you contact the vendor and demand a refund as repair is near impossible.
