  • Re: Beogram 8000 on the way...

    I got the Beogram 8000 back from Rudy. Everything is working and in perfect order! Gladly, the mmc20CL cartridge also seems to be faultless. He also had a Beomaster 6000 that was looking for a new home with terminal remote. So, this is it all set up.

  • Question about the 2 -pin DIN speaker connector

    I remember back in the 80s when the family Sharp hi-fi had speakers with these connectors. I now have a pair of Beovox 3000 flat panel speakers on the wall and will need the same connectors to hook up to the Beomaster. My question is, if gold plated this and that in terms of banana plugs are so prevalent why are all these 2-pin DIN connecters made of cheap looking plastic and stainless pins? I'm no expert, but isn't that a degradation right there, $$$ of equipment to be hooked via something

    Hi all, an update on the Beogram. The broken parts of the tonearm have now been fixed by Rudy using 3D printing! It looks like they'll do the job perfectly. A couple of other issues have also been sorted out, including a large blob of solder which was creating a short...that could've been me Anyway, you can follow the links if you want to find out more... http://beolover.blogspot.jp/2015/11/beogram-8000-adjusting-horizontal-parallelism-of-tonearm.html http://beolover.blogspot.jp/2015/11/beogram

  • Placement of Beovox 3000 (1988) panel speakers.

    Hi all, I need a bit of advice on the placement of these. I am currently deciding where to mount a pair of these speakers in my living room. Basically, the room is not so conventional in shape, it's a wedge-shape with most of it windows as it's on a corner of an apartment building. The 'placement' section of the user guide doesn't really say anything other than the wall is essential to boost the bass response. My current monitor audio's use the same bass reflex technique.

    Stepping back, I could ask myself what it is I really want from this machine; basically, a fully functioning 8000 that looks stunning. My work on it has got it closer but I can see now I am likely to damage it if I keep opening it up (don't have space or workbench to leave it all out all the time.) and pressing on the PCB and other parts. So, today, I boxed it up (properly) and have sent it to someone who knows what they're doing B&O-wise to bring it up to scratch. there was a moment

    Thank you for your kind offer! I know the 6002 looks similar but that baseplate seems to be quite different, I don't think I could make use of any of those parts. What happened to that poor machine? ;)

    Thanks Lee, I'll look out for it. did you have a technique for glueing it back? I mean, with the arm assembly in position or pointing upwards?

    And the rear right rail guide, you can see the broken bit angled slightly against the rail (sorry if my images are upside down, I don't know what's causing that in my Safari.)

    Here is the broken plastic piece from the front rail guide, I tried to glue it back without much luck. The other broken piece I suspect happened some time ago and not through shipping as I haven't found and broken pieces in the chassis. The tonearm sits on the rail quite comfortably but I just worried that it will be too susceptible to vibration or being disturbed.
