  • Re: Grand Prix tv 610 rg

    Today I thought I would have a go at making a new handle to replace one the broken ones. I’m not a fan of the plastic so I chose some Indian rosewood, not brazilian as the cabinet, but for a handle it’ll do. Not particularly difficult but you have to be gentle as it’s very thin. Aften some Oil and wax I installed it. Looks allright and I much prefer the feel of the Wood here next to the remaining intact original one.

    [quote user="the_o_master"] It is really nice find. Congratulations! I envy you really for this test EP! I got the test song few years ago as MP3 from the beoworld member. Nice little earworm-song [/quote] Yes, I agree a Nice little bit of history, however, easy come easy go. I know Frede has been putting together a set of the very first B&o stereo and as he didn’t have this ep I have offered it to him.

    Thanks for your input ben and Martin. I'm very open for bringing it back to working condition. But I imagine it will take some time and i will need some serious help or somebody to do it for me. Status is that I have restored the veneer and repaired a couple of chips so it looks great. 2 of three handles are broken. Were those horrible plastic ones the only option? I have taken the tv out, it would have to for repair Anyway. I won't have something that doesn't work. I will definately

    Very stylish fnabdog. Is it a showroom? Love the contrast with the red Panton heart chair.

    Thanks. Yes, that the dilemma isn’t it? Keep it orignal or make it into something more usefull. I Lean towards gently taking the tv out and store it, and making a veenered insert that can be tanken out again. Though I like originality I sometimes have to remind myself not to turn my home into a museum

    I admit it, I have a softspot for the 60’s rgs. One of these came up for sale recently and though the asking price of 400 £ was a bit steep I decided to go and have a look at it. The condition of it was okay. One owner from new. The tv didn’t work, which doesn’t really matter, and it can be made to look very good. He was eager to get rid of it so He accepted the much lower offer I made him and I took the 75 kg rg home with me. I have an idea about using just as cabinet. Leaving the radio and Beogram

    All up and running they didn't sound bad before but I'm surprised how big a difference it has made. The image and seperation is much clearer. It takes a little getting used to, like when we first got hd tv and suddenly saw the fit presenter in a, erm, new light. I'm planning to give the beovox m100, that they are replacing, the same treatment and then compare the 2 sets and decide which to keep. Took a quick snap of the two next to each other to show the diffences. sorry for the poor

    Today I have finally found some time to reinstall the refurbished crossovers and midtones. Does take a bit of time but I can’t wait to hear them with my Classic audio bm4400. Thanks to Martin for his help.

  • Re: Beomaster 900

    I would give it a pass. It doesn’t Sound like it’s one you’ve been searching for for ages and if you feel the seller is a bit rude then it’s not worth the high asking price. I would say however that a great example can be worth that price, and including service I have payed more for one of mine. They really are very good workhorses. Kris

    Haha excellent I know the feeling allthough I have restricted myself and put the bs9000 in storage and kept my 6500 in the livingroom. And as Johan said, it’s perfect as wall art. Kris
