    The A1 has been great this summer on the balcony. Today, clearly, summer is over!

  • B&O and pets

    I wondered how many of you own pets that freely roam your home. It can be a challenge to have nice stuff when having pets. We got a miniature dachshund in Feb and he's a real charmer. Luckily, the speakers are wall mounted and the Beogram is out of his reach. He has tried to chew a few LPs, I managed to hear the plastic cover rustling and stop him before he got through to the record cover. Sadly, a pair of Toms wasn't so lucky. Today, cleaning the bathroom, I opened the door and stepped out

  • Re: Beogram 8002 sticking tonearm

    Very informative pics as always! My tonearm assembly has stuck once since which likely means it will happen again but it is definitely much better. I also thought that perhaps the tonearm was travelling a bit too far at rest. There is a tiny but noticeable 'wobble' when it comes to a rest which may indicate that it is raising up a bit. Anyway, I will see it the current setup works over the weekend. I did adjust that SO switch slightly and could see that the set down point was altered but

  • Re: Beogram 8002 sticking tonearm

    I went back inside this morning. Sonavor, I pressed play while the belt was off and the motor ran strongly ten straight times in a row and always seems to spin with the belt on. I decided to completely clean up the rails without actually removing them. That stuff on the ends is not grease, more silicone/rubber. I got it off both rails. All clips look in tact. I cleaned up the rails and applied some oil. Now, I've been here before so I don't want to seem overconfident but things seem to be

    Not sure if the motor still runs with the belt off. There's certainly some resistance when I turn the worm drive a bit to get the tonearm to move out. After that, it runs very smoothly. Here's a pic of the situation. There's the rubber like stuff on the ends of the guide rails. I've removed bits of that but not all.

  • Beogram 8002 sticking tonearm

    Hi, I acquired a Beogram 8002 in March this year. The unit I got is near mint and has had its caps replaced. The issue I've been having with it has been occurring since I got it out of the original box. I've been thinking it was the servo-belt being incorrect, but now I'm not sure. Here's the issue: When I hit PLAY, often, the tonearm doesn't come out. The platter rotates at 33.33. I manually give the brass worm drive a turn by hand reaching towards the back of the unit and then

  • Re: EarSet 3i broken cable

    I've had the exact same problem in 2016. The day before I was flying out on holiday I went into a shop, unplugged my EarSet 3i, when I plugged them back into my iPhone they didn't work! I was convinced it was the iPhone. I restarted it, cleaned the jack but after trying them in another device it was the earphones. Now I've got to take a considerable amount of time to take them back to the shop and have them repaired. Some sound does come through when I 'tweak' around the base

  • Re: What B&O are we packing for travel?

    I'm in Japan, but will travel to UK and Spain in Aug. I love my new moss green A1 but I am on the fence about taking it due to the weight. It's not heavy really but I am considering my journey back to Japan laden with sauce bottles and a multitude of other condiments. Wondering if the iPhone speaker will do :( I will be taking my Earset 3i which have a smooth sound and responsive in-line controller. As for a case for the A1, I don't really mind, I have umpteen pouches from this and that

  • Re: Reattaching an MMC cartridge to a Beogram 8000

    Thanks for that. You're probably right, it might be best not to use that one, though I would like to hear it as it looks in a nice condition. I've not had any issues with either the original 20cl or a mmc4000 before. Though the back of the EN looks fine to me with the contacts just slightly raised.

  • Reattaching an MMC cartridge to a Beogram 8000

    Sorry if this has been asked before, couldn't find an answer with my search inputs. For any seasoned pros at this, what is the best method to swap a cartridge on an 8000 without breaking the plastic tab - it's rather nerve-racking. I've done it twice before with the same cart but a recently acquired mmc20en seems to be putting up more resistance to going on. Thanks
