Hi beaker,

no, unfortunately I didn't get this power unit till now... but I am looking for it...

Do you get an original one or are you still using the one you get with the BEO?

Regarding the tuner Minette 609K, I am sure there wasn't  the black version of it. There was only black version of Hi-Fi Stereo Amplifier 608 (called Beolab 610 as you mentioned). What a pitty, it would be very nice set in black. Maybe one of forum members with special skills comes to idea to make one of it. I am sure there are some guys who would be able to do this job perfectly...

I dont have an original one. Mine appears to have been retro fitted with one by someone that certainly knew what they were doing. It can still be used with batteries and uses the correct type of plugs. I reckon it may even have been done at a B&O workshop perhaps after an original power supply failed.

That's all? 2x 8500, 5x 9000, 2x 9300, 3x 9500 Whistle

I traded my minty 9300 with a restorated Beomaster 6000 4 channel earlier this year. I kinda regret it, should have bought the 6000 instead!

@ baeker:

I would be happy also with a good home made version till I get the original. Maybe I can order one from Martin, if he can make it...

In any case I do not prefer to sponsoring a Battery-Industry for a long time Indifferent

And do you own a black 610? I am always glad to see some pictures of it Yes - thumbs up

@ Søren:

The 6000 Quadro seems to be not so good sounding. I am also not satisfied with his sound (though not refited and restaurated) but I think it has to be present in every B&O collection. Its design is simple wonderful! For me it is the nicest B&O device ever produced...

The original BEO 610 mains power supply (910 H 13) was a plug-in module held by two rotating clips, not unlike the
one used for the battery cover.

No and no.
But it shouldn't be too difficult for you to make your own.

Heres a couple of pics of the power supply in mine. When I say its home made, who ever made it seems to have known what they were doing. It fits in perfectly with the chassis.

For pics of my 610 amp look here

Soren, you traded your BC9300 with a MB6000. So you have a BM6000 now?

hmm, maybe but without original one and shematic I do not have a chance. Do you have the shematic Martin?

Or, as we can see, Leslie has 3 of them. Maybe he will change his mind and he sells me one of them...

It doesn't sound that nice compared with my original Beomaster 3400 or restorated 4400. The capacitor coupled output amplifiers are not capable of good performance. I know that the Beolab 5000 could get away with such a design - but the 6000 Quad is much more of a compromise.

Yup, my second 6000 Quad. I don't use it, but it is still a part of the collection; listening to some SQ-encoded records every now and then, though my Beomaster 3400 would take over that position when the long winter evenings tempts me to recap it.

Just got my hands on this one. 

50€ from the original owner. Haven´t powered it up yet. Guess I´ll open it up clean it and check solders & caps before I´ll start it up.

Lucky you!

Are you perfectly happy with the pressings then?

There is a lot of debate about this, and that's the reason why it was not on my Xmas list...

Yes I would take the plunge and buy a few especially the early stuff. The later releases say beyond Revolver would not sound much different than a good original copy

 You can buy the boxed set if you like or you can buy the LP's individually. I bought the 3 I wanted most but I have heard some of the others at the record store I shop at.

The one I might still buy is Hard Day's Night although I already have a good vinyl copy US release and an original British EMI release on CD.

Thanks Eugene, that is what I will do too, I have a pair of "originals" (pressed in Mexico), so I will just go for some of the older ones

I have not encountered any of the "pressing" problems I read about on Amazon. Perhaps they have sorted them out now. Or, maybe I was just lucky. "With the Beatles" is outstanding IMO. Growing up we had a copy of "Meet the Beatles".

My other obsession and seasonal addiction is all the care and attention I pay anually to my heirloom Amaryllis. The original bulb was cultivated by my late grandmother in the 1950's. It's offspring have been in the family ever since.

my mother bakes danish cookies at Xmas. "funny mans buckles" and the deep fried batter cookies in star patterns. Then there are the herrings, pickled, raw and smoked (kippered) served on flat bread with sharp cheese or spread, although I actually prefer it with cream cheese or brie.

One thing I dont miss is the lutefisk we would sometimes have when the grandparent and great grandparents were still around.

Agree the lutefisk (Norwegian), klipfisk (Danish) we dont need, and I love herring in all its appearances, swimming i Danish Aquavit.

We are off topic here, but a nice little Xmas talk.Big Smile

nah just the lowly P30 but I was lucky and got the pair for 65 dollars including shipping. I like them even if they are not properly mounted and I suppose being plugged into a BM 5000 and leaning against a pair of S-75's is probably is not what the designers in Struer had in mind. In spite of that they actually sound pretty nice.

No buyers remorse at my end on this pair. Just need to find them a wall to mount up to. I am thinking bedroom with with a BM 1600

My latest addition is this lot, bought on a danish on-line auction. 2300 DKKr (approx. 400 US$ incl. fee) . Big Smile

The Beovox 4500's are in MINT condition - absolutely NO scratches. So i'll swap them with the ones I have (with a few minor scratches) -and sell the 'old' ones.

The 5500 system: The CD won't play (guess it's just the usual cap issue). The BM is playing -but does not respond to remote signals. The Beocord needs new belts. Should be easy to fix.

I've already sold most of the other stuff (MCP 5500, MCL 2P, MCL2 AV, one of the MCL 2A boxes, 2 transceivers and 1 BeoLink 1000 - for more than I payed for the lot Lets have a Party !!!
