  • Re: MMC4 Cartridge falling apart

    Thanks for your advice, guys. Don't know when I'll get to doing this (still working on my Beomaster 6000 4-ch. - which continues to be a major project). And thanks for the reminder as to checking the mass; easy enough to do that. jackm

  • MMC4 Cartridge falling apart

    I recently acquired a Beomaster 5000 set in fairly good condition. The system came with a spare MMC 4R cartridge which looks pretty good but....of course - there's always a "but"..... The silver end of the MMC4 is separated from the black part. Thus, the question is whether the two pieces can be mated again, perhaps a tiny drop of CA ("superglue"), or should I just toss it away? The cantilever and diamond look to be the good condition but I don't know how to get them back

  • Re: Beovox S-80 woofer problem

    I wish everything had such a simple and effective answer. It took longer to plug in the vac than to "pop" out the woofer and all's right with the world. Thanks, all, for your help. As to the comments about the "stack o' tronics", I can't say I disagree with much. But I got it all for a fair price, knowing that the cassette unit doesn't work and the TT makes noises I never knew a turntable could make. It needs a lot of attention. But I got an excellent remote controlled

  • Beovox S-80 woofer problem

    I recently purchased a nice bunch of B&O units that came with a nice pair of Beovox S-80 speakers. I don't know whether the seller had it or I did it while transporting it, but once I finally had a chance to try them out I found that the woofer on one speaker is a bit "punched in". Not the entire speaker but that top cone - the part that reminds me of a Studebaker. The peak is pushed in about half an inch, with a "pushed in" area about an inch in diameter. I don't

  • S45-2 speaker replacements

    As a temporary system until I get a big project up and running, I have been using a pair of S45-2 speakers with a Beocenter 7000. I find this to be an excellent system for my living room now, although it will probably end up in the basement workship eventually. Or I might sell it. In either case, I have a bit of a problem that I absolutely must fix. One of the S45s had a tiny buzz that seemed like a cone problem. (I usually play it pretty loud.) I finally removed the front and found that the middle

  • Re: Beomaster 6000 4-ch. - anyone have a photo of the "kickstand"?

    My thanks to everybody - especially square4 for the photos. That "wire" looks a bit heavier than I remembered. The plastic mounts (if they are, indeed, plastic) are the Achilles Heel of the stand. Interesting, if someone could duplicate a good pair via 3D printer. I suspect the factory brackets break because they're on the brittle side. Or they become brittle after decades of heat. Barring some very inventive thinking from someone, I may want to redesign my shelves so that the 6000

    I figured the kickstand would have been designed by an expert in wirebending or something that would guarantee a safe posture (as opposed to, I could only think of stuffing a hunk of wood under the rear). And I will definitely build a nice, but sturdy, rim to the shelf that will prevent disaster, which, by the way, is my middle name. JackM

  • Re: Beomaster 6000 4-ch. - anyone have a photo of the "kickstand"?

    Well, yes and no. I have a CD that has 'most everything and I have Silver privileges here. The "no" part is that the original factory materials are a lot nicer than copies. I seem to recall seeing a photo of a B&O unit that had what looked like a bent wire as a prop. I want to duplicate it as well as possible so there's no chance of it collapsing. There is also the concern that the front of the Beomaster could slide forward and carry the Monster Masterpiece down four feet to
