  • Re: Is this guy legit?

    He's hijacking the accounts of legitimate sellers by phishing their passwords. He wants you to deal with him directly and provides his email address in the auction. If you try to contact the seller the usual way (thru eBay), you will reach the legitimate seller, who is unaware that his account has been hijacked and is being used fraudulently. Ebay has become pretty good at detecting this behavior (and often get assistance from eBay members who report the auction as fraudulent) and immediately

  • Problem with Beosound 8..

    I just acquired this locally. I'm getting distortion thru the right channel. I removed the grill/fret to troubleshoot and found that the woofer is non-functional, and it seems to be sending the bass frequencies to the tiny tweeter, which is causing it to vibrate/distort. If I put my finger on the left channel tweeter, there is no noticeable vibration, which is what to be expected. So is the problem with the right channel woofer, which I can find a replacement for? Or something in the crossover

  • Re: Beosound 8 won't power up..

    So embarrassed. I figured the mere act of plugging it in would cause a standby light to go on. Nope. But the minute I connected my PC to it it sprang to life. Thanks all!

  • Beosound 8 won't power up..

    I've acquired a beautiful but dead-as-a-doornail Beosound 8. Has anyone else experienced this? Was the problem something simple such as a fuse or bad connection with power plug? Or something above my pay grade such as replacing the power supply? And how do you open this thing up? Thanks in advance..

  • Re: Help identifying BeoSound model for a newbie please???

    You should test the sliding door mechanism with the doors attached. It's quite possible they were removed because the mechanism is defective (if it works with the doors removed does not mean it will work with the doors attached due to the added weight). It looks to be in pretty rough condition and with B&O, cosmetic condition is *very* important. You don't have the remote control I assume. Here in the States, worth maybe $400 if the doors work.

  • Re: Beolab 4000 questions

    [quote user="Michael"]Maybe they didn't change t because of the issue but just because of a change in provider or so? If so, maybe there is an overlap due to material still being available and also new material supplied. So the assembly men and women just picked whichever they had handy. Maybe.[/quote] Highly unlikely they made the change due to the issue because the oldest pair of speakers in year 2000 (when the change was made) would have been just 3 years old.

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

    [quote user="GregKo"]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.[/quote] To echo what Peter said, it does not have a built-in RIAA preamp. You'd need to purchase this and there are plenty of recommendations on this forum. www.phonopreamps.com is a good source. The ideal turntable choice would be a Beogram 6500 or 7000: -Matches your other 6500 components perfectly -RIAA Preamp built in -No cable adapter required

  • Re: Beosound 3, opinion ?

    [quote user="BeoGreg"]Now that's a story !!! And why did he sold the BS3 ? You bought it broken ? [/quote] It worked perfectly. Who knows why he sold it. Perhaps because he wanted to concentrate on his own design rather than being constantly reminded of the previous architect's design (DL's is superior - INCREDIBLE structure).

  • Re: Beosound 3, opinion ?

    I have an interesting story about the one I owned. Like many of you I suppose, I occasionally browse Craigslist for used B&O gear in my area. Quite some time ago I spotted a listing for a Beosound 3 for a very reasonable price. I didn't really need one but I couldn't resist - it was pocket change, maybe $100. So I set up an appointment with the seller (who turned out to be the secretary of the seller) to visit his location in downtown Manhattan. It turned out to be an office building
