  • Re: Beogram 5000 Tonearm doing its own thing

    Yes I have the service manual already and have cleaned the various contact switches and setup platter height. But I don't understand how I can setup the arm when it behaves differently every time it is cued. Whatever makes it go back all the way to rest position and lift up and down must be a bit dicky I think as it behaves differently nearly every cue. I couldn't find lubrication points in the service manual. The long spring that scrapes against the bottom of the tonearm assembly doesnt

  • Beogram 5000 Tonearm doing its own thing

    Hi all, I recently acquired a Beogram 5000 Type 5803 in ok visual, condition but not working. The tone arm doesn't operate properly. Sometimes, it cues over the record but doesn't drop, when it does drop, when you stop it, it doesn't lift back up, the arm never returns to rest, it only just gets of the record and then stops, sometimes when you go to cue the arm, because it doesn't lift up, it smashes into the side of the record (dont worry, I fitted a stuffed cartridge to it when

    Have you set the anti skating? I'm pretty sure underneath the Beogram there is an adjustment for skating. Check service manual and it explains how to set.

    Excellant summary Cleve! That is exactly the thinking behind the Tangentials. Make the customer as comfortable and at ease as possible because the machine takes care of everything. If you want the Absolute Best in sound reproduction then yes, spend a fortune on a full manual turntable, pre amp, amp, cartridge and then spend hours setting it up and yes, you probably will have a better sounding setup then an out the box tangential B&O table, but at a considerable extra cost, stress, worry and maintaince

    As far as a completly automatic turntable goes, they are great. As I said earlier, there are compromises when making such a machine. A full analog/semi manual decent quality expensive turntable will be better and should be better sonicly. Same as a pure Mono cartridge will sound better on Mono recordings then a Stereo one playing a Mono record. There is a compromise. A bit cheeky comparing it to a Beogram 3000 Thorens. An excellant standalone turntable and one of the best for price. Its a completly

    Yes I remember reading that review. It was soundsmiths version/replica of the MMC1, the SMMC1. I remember them praising it and saying it was one of the best in the price range and even superior to more expensive cartridges.

    EDIT ABOVE POST, INSERT, "Y our using the top needle or recommended needle for it THAT IS IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER, not some 30 year old cartridge that even if is new in the box is most likely stuffed from age anyway, (Soundsmith does brand new needles so no excuse)" Yes, even an original brand new in the box MMC1 can sound shocking as it has most likely deteriorated over the decades. This has been well documented via tests, this is not a debate. If your needle isn't upto scratch, don't

    Ofcourse top of the range Beograms are excellant!! But compare apples to apples. Yes, some of the lesser Beograms were cheaply made, hence why the COST CHEAPER. A properly restored and overhauled Beogram 4000 series (4000,02,04,6000) and the 8002 will hold their own and then some against other machines costing the same if not more. No heavy platter??? That would defeat the idea behind the suspension system. The people that could afford B&O back then, wouldn't of been happy forking out all
