This weekend i was in Jutland to pick up a package

What could it be ?

 

A beogram 3000 in very nice condition,and it seemed to work properly,but it must have done a service.

I got it at a very very good price.

Hi Henrik,

I am positively green.

I’ve been looking for a Stereo Width box (as well as a BG3000) for ages. Zero luck.

Well done 👍🏻👍🏻

Please publish inside views of both boxes. Noboby has ever seen the mk1 I think!

That’s the one I copied.

Henrik; wow, those are very nice pieces. I had never seen a MkI box, I have a MkII (which looks identical to yours).

Btw; as in your first MkII photo, there is a white piece between the high power resistors and the metal plate supporting the small transformer. I am not sure if your MkI has it too. That white piece *might* be asbestos, used as a heat insulation. Probably harmless if not disturbed, but something to keep in mind.

Hi lausvi. 

The insulation is on the mk1, but you cant see it on the picture.

Same here Jacques, that BG 3000 has been on my list for years, not even sure if it will run on 60 Hz

Congrats Henrik, if possible I am more green than Jacques

I found it in the UK. I've never seen any in France. I think £ 100 was a fair price.

Hi Jacques,

How does it sound and how does it connect to the Beolab?

Hi John,

It is connected to the SPK2 terminal, with the centre speaker connected to it. 

I have a custom box I built a few years ago, see here, because I couldn't find the real Mccoy!

It gives some depth to the soundstage. Frede has an article about it on his website, somewhere.

Got this one yesterday. Serviced two weeks ago, and with a MMC20CL that looks and sounds very new Big Smile

The plastic around the hinges for the lid is broken of, so need some TLC.

But amazing found for me Big Smile

I've just bought a pair of Beolab 1 for my Beobar. The price here in Denmark has for the last 7-8 years been quite consistent around 10-12.000 DKKr for a set.

I bought these for 8.000 DKKr (approx. 1.300 US $) because they had a few scratches on the backside.

They are really nice looking -and sounding. But I think they are a bit more "harsh" in the treble than the Beolab Pentas mk3 (which I am keeping). Has anybody else had the same experience?

I can't answer your question about the speakers but I love seeing photos of the Beobar. That is excellent.
