Hi Beoworlders,

Please share a photo or short video of your B&O collection! I'm looking to put together a showcase of some of the best B&O home setups on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/soundsheavenlycables - please don't worry, you don't have to be on camera if you are feeling shy!

I'm also interested in making some video interviews with other B&O fans in the UK, so please let me know if you would like to be featured in one of my videos!

Kind regards, Steve.

This was my home office before my latest house change at the beginning of summer.

It started out as the vintage-only area but later on I added a BeoSound Century and even a BS2. Since this was the room I easily spent almost my entire day in during the last year it was nice to have a bunch of gear to rotate through.

Some of you may notice some gear I have had for many years and even an old project (BV2500 clones) but the truly remarkable thing here is the BeoLab 5000. I rescued this particular set from Germany and brought it to Detroit where it drives my S45-2s. This was (obviously) the toughest part of completing the 3000/4000/5000 slider collection.

It's really not much to fix that Century antenna, your lineup will be greatly improved!

You're right! Sadly I made this realization on the very same day I dismantled it for storage. Crying During my time using it, I was more focused on trying to clone a table stand for it (sadly something that is still unfinished).

Hi everyone,

Many thanks! Is it OK if I share these great photos with B&O via my social media feed please? (B&O's official account follows me on Instagram) I will of course credit you in the pictures.

Kind regards, Steve.

OK with me to use them, but I'd prefer not to be credited. If you'd rather use an individual photo or photos rather than the collage, just let me know and happy to send your way or you can take them directly from the Flash Your B&O thread.

Here is my Beoloab 4000's :) I just designed this shelf for them and had it built to my specs. Hope you like it.

 

I made it so if you flip the records forward you can see the iPad in the notch it sits in. The iPad either controls the Yamaha System powering it or I just stream from Apple Music/Spotify etc wirelessly to the speakers.

 

This is how I made use of the space under the record bin. Hid the Yamaha system and pre-amp.

It looks great.  Question:  Do you have any problems with the subwoofer vibrating feedback into your turntable?  I sometimes play vinyl through my BS2, and the BS2 sits one the same cabinet as my turntable, and have problems if I turn it up too loud.  Maybe your cabinet is sturdier than mine (or your turntable has better vibration dampening).

No not at all.  its front firing and I also left the back of that part of the cabinet open on the back just in case.

Sorry Peter Pan,

I think you may have have misunderstood the topic for this thread.  We are sharing photos of B&O collections here.  I think you have posted these pictures in your own thread already?

Kind regards, Steve.

Heres my bedroom setup. My office one is still in the works. Will hopefully have it done by the end of the month (especially because the BeoCenter is coming from the UK. Note that in this drive link, all the photos taken were of how my bedroom system looks day to day, I didn't stage it. Also, the speakers are usually on stands next to my dresser, but I'm renovating my house so I had to move some stuff around.

I will show my two B&O setups that I've recently put together. One (a Beomaster 3300. BeoCord Tape 3300, 1800 turntable from 35 yrs ago), and a more recent purchase for a Beomaster 4500, BeoGram 4500 turntable, BeoGram CD, BeoCord Tape. Each have a pair RL 60.2 loudspeakers. I have a pair of RL 140 loudspeakers on the way to my doorstep and will connect them to the Beomaster 4500.

The Beomaster 3300 is in my man cave, and the Beomaster 4500 is in my living room. The living room has the best acoustics, as it has more hard surfaces than does the man cave.

BV14-40 with BL11 & BL8000's and 6000's (the 6000's over Wisa) & BeoGram 4500.
What's not visible: Apple TV, Telenet set top box controller, Samsung UHD Bluray player, cables :-)
Additional: Essence Remote for volume controle of the BV14 so the BeoRemote One BT can stay on the couch.

Hi,

Beautifull! What is that record next to the 4002 and from what unit are the schematics on the wall (I like the idea of schematics poster).

Thanks! That's Laura Marling's newest one, Songs for My Daughter. It's excellent. Those are 1900 schematics, I found it helps me to make better sense of them when they're printed huge. Used to fix the pictured 1900 (bad touch button transistor and one bad standby IC).

Hi Steve

I understand that you want/need som photos for your channel etc.

However it seems that this thread is slowly taking over what the old thread: Flash your B&O - new thread’

https://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/227.aspx?PageIndex=139

has been doing very well for a long time now.

What are your thoughts about this - don’t you see a problem there (or is it just me)?

MM

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Hi MM,

I'm really sorry about that, it wasn't my intention.  I would never share pictures without asking permission, so I wanted to start a new thread where people are happy to share their pictures with B&O as part of their "Curated" project.  I will ask Beoworlders to go over to the other thread to post pictures: Flash your B&O - new thread’

https://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/227.aspx?PageIndex=139

If anyone wants to share a photo with me for B&O's Curated project, then please contact me directly via my sponsor link below.  I don't know if there is any way to lock this thread, but I will ask people not to post any more photos here.

Hope that helps.

Kind regards, Steve.

Steve.
