Excellent question!

Obviously I've dealt with a huge amount of these, and I've never seen much difference in longevity between mount positions. My guess would be Horizontal on a wall bracket which would (I'd imagine) give less stress to the mechanism. Laser, though - I couldn't guess...

On a side note, if you're buying one... one thing to always check.  If it's been on a wall, adjust the suspension and lay it flat on a table... then press eject.

This will always highlight if the door belts need replacing. On the wall it doesn't take as much effort to lift the glass, so if they're weak you may not know. That's why I always put the unit flat on a table to test...

What Lee explains is why I lost money on eBay.

The unit I sold had been on wall, and the guy that bought it laid it flat and said the door did not open properly.

So eBay decided to take 300€ from me.

Because it's an aging-thing. Nowadays the suspension has had so much time lifting the optics, that nowadays the suspension are deformed. It's the same with cars. It's suspension/shockabsorbers causes over the years that old cars hang over to one side.

Best position is horizontal hanging on the wall. Next will be flat on the table. Avoid vertical on stand or vertical on the table stand, if you want your BS9000 to play as long as possible.

What is "vertical on the table stand"? If, as i believe, it is a mistyping for "horizontal on the table stand" then what would be the stress difference between "horizontal on the table stand" and "horizontal hanging on the wall"? I assume that one is with the control below and the other with the control above, but what does this change for the laser part?

Why my BS 9000 if it is vertical, arm drops down like a stone ?

but if the unit is lying on the cabinet , arm movement work without a problem?

Great, after 22 years of using mine vertically on the wall or floor stand, now somebody tells me. Surprise

I'm afraid I'm recovering from the BeoVirus. Sad

After 20 years of horizontal on the wall I’m will change it to vertical instead, due to an overall rearranging of the furnitures. Just waiting to find a wall stand at a reasonable prize.

That's a good information, thanks!
