  • Re: Cleaning Beolab 9

    Hi, When i got my Beolab 5's they were slightly dusty from being in the shop for a long time. What i did was to use one of those sicky hand rollers (you get from supermarkets and pound shops) on the cloth frett, and just a dry microfibre cloth for the top metal discs. came up a treat. Hope this helps.

    [quote user="Chris Townsend"] 22412395 and 22621095 Considering all that’s recently gone on in our life, this was the last place I thought I’d be screwed. [/quote] The serial numbers are not consecutive? Is this normal? (my lab5's have consecutive numbers) Plus you say the store received them from Struer earlier this year? This would suggest to me they could be customer faulty/returned items, repaired and sent to a dealer for resale? This could be a good thing? maybe they

    Just want to ask, do the serial numbers start with a 22? if so they could be manufactured in 2010. Mine are the same, serial number 22, what I've found on the web is serial no 22 is both 2010 & 2011 !!

    [quote user="Chris Townsend"] I’ve known this store and the staff for over 12 years. It’s not just about the money, these were our wedding anniversary present. My wife will never have the brand in our house ever again. It’s all got to go. [/quote] Really sorry to hear this, but understandable. I don't understand why a B&O store would deceive you out of around £4000 of cash. Very worrying, I'm sure you are not the only customer they have deceived, if the

    Yeah, definitely mis-selling, 2011 beolab 5's are not worth £12,500. Last month I purchased a pair of 2011 Ex Demo Beolab 5's from my local B&O store with free delivery, all leads and 3 year warranty for £8250. Regarding your purchase i'm amazed that during the sales process the sales assistant didn't realise they are 6 years old, surely the serial numbers on the invoice should of rang alarm bells. I would goto the store, have a conversation with the manager, if no

  • Re: Preamplifier for beolab8000

    I have a Cambridge pre-amp from my Technics 1210 turntable to my Beocenter 9300 going to my Beolab 5's. Sounds great.

  • Re: beolab 3500 Bass level

    You are correct, i've got one in my kitchen, I do have the bass turned up on the unit, still not good. The wife thinks it sounds great, but i'm used to the bass from my Lab5's. I haven't heard the Beolab 6000, but a pair of Beolab 4000 sound alot better the the 3500.

  • Re: Have we reached 'Peak' B&O?

    My thoughts on this - I've had B&O equipment for around 15-20 years and looking at the current line up of new products from B&O for me i think they reached their peak around 10 years ago. When I was a kid I loved listening to music, I had a Technics music system, which was at the time all i could afford, but i had a Bang & Olufsen brochure and dreamed of a Beocenter 9000 and a couple of redline beovox speakers, those products were and always will be iconic. 10 years ago you could
