    Thank you for this!
    I have a stupid question (I’m new to this) – how important is it to use the original damping foam parts from b&o? Will it make a significant difference to the sound quality? To me it just looks like foam that I can potentially source elsewhere, or at least something very similar. Is there any easy alternative someone can suggest that I can use? Someone mentioned in another forum they used a magic eraser.
    I called my local B&O dealer (in Hong Kong), they explicitly said they do not sell parts individually. Also, what’s shown in the picture doesn’t look like what was in my original beolab 6000, hence the question
    Here’s what my original foam looks like: [url=https://postimg.cc/Fd9PMMvW][img]https://i.postimg.cc/Fd9PMMvW/IMG-20220623-210634.jpg[/img][/url]
    Thank you!

    Your dealer should be to order the foam for your BL 6000 as a spare part from B&O. In this auction can you see the number ….. https://www.ebay.de/itm/154203121920?hash=item23e738e900:g:O1IAAOSwSXFdpIDw good luck

    Your original black foam is exactly the same poison foam as in the old BL8000 and damage your BL6000.

    The new white foam in my pic makes your BL6000 happy again.

    I dont know if an other foam better or the same working in your BL but I think the original is the best. When your dealer would your BL repair so he takes the original from B&O.

    You can try an other dealer to send you the spare foam. Maybe he is more flexible with you.

    good luck

    Hi Beoworlders,

    That’s it, my BL 8000 are now finished:

    After an extensive cleaning following Matador’s tutorial:

    -New damping material placed,

    -Foam tape exchanged with Beobuddy’s supply,

    -Bushings of the main transformers exchanged by new ones supplied by Beoparts (part number RP-008  proposed for BL Penta, 3000, 4500, 5000).

    They shine like new!!!

    My warmest thanks to all contributors of this brilliant thread,

    Yann.
