Ahh, come on. - A good cleaning and a bit of oil and it will be fine, I'm sure. Laughing

Definitely a challenge.

I know......quality isn't it......I suspect I may be requiring more that a couple of tuning lamps Unsure

Nothing is hard enough for a hard-core Beoworlder Wink

Probably much more effort would it be to repair the electronic as to clean this dirty beast and do the optics. I can remember as I got my BM4400 from Denmark, with cabinet damaged on both sides. It was not easy but I gave my best ...

Graig,

Is there damage to the aluminum finishing pieces? I mean severe damage affecting the aesthetic and missing parts?  I can take care of the woodwork no problem if you want to part with it.

Let me know! Smile

Someone has had a go at replacing the emitter resistors on the right channel, looks like they tried to wind their own!
