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

    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

    Or...you were asking about my Internet service? It is painfully slow. But jpegs and bitmaps eventually make it, as do PDFs. I'm patient. JackM

    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

  • My Clumsey Fingers

    I am currently using a Beomaster 7000 but this applies to turntables like the BG1700 and numerous others. I was listening to an LP that I haven't heard in years and was distracted for a few minutes. I wanted to go back to the part I missed. Unlike a BG400x the aforementioned TTs have no facility to lift the tone arm and move it back any amount. The tone arm has no "lift arm" to raise it manually. I find it impossible to grab the tone arm to move it back. What do I do? In my case, I

  • Re: Swapping parts between BG 4002 & 6000??

    a-HA !! I will swap out the rail(s) and expect much better performance. But now I will have to ponder just how that rail could have gotten bent in the first place. What might have pushed down on it with enough force to bend it? Actually, the screw rod next to it was also bent. I've been able to straighten it out somewhat just using two opposing fingers. It used to drag a bit when the traveler was near the middle, but with the addition of lubrication it seems to be okay. No, really. How the heck

    Sorry if I wasn't clear about my dilemma. I'm familiar with the Beolover BlogSpot, YouTube how-to's, etc., but I don't see anything in that link. My motor problem isn't the TT motor, but the little one that moves the tone and sensor arms. I'm not aware of Beolover ever publishing anything regarding any kind of 6000-4002 swap, etc. Thanks for the suggestion, though. Makes me want one of those digital RPM testers. JackM .

  • Swapping parts between BG 4002 & 6000??

    Frustration is my middle name! I've spent a lot of time on my Brogram 6000 and still don't have a properly working unit. I bought it on Ebay - as is. I have it mostly working right and expect that I can get it into totally proper condition but this one's got me. I've never seen anyone mention the two silver rods that the entire contraption rides on. Each rod is located on the big unit's base plate, held in a groove with one screw and a small rectangular plate. Here's the problem

  • Re: BeoCenter 7000 turntable cover hinge, plus a dumber question

    If you mean the middle thing sticking up...guess the ending to this sentence...yes, I'll be looking thru the various brands of epoxy in the garage. There wasn't even any kind of snap, it just broke mostly off but hanging by a thread, then just dropped off. Like I didn't see that coming! Returning the lid without the spring (fortunately) won't be a total disaster; the lid just feels heavier than before. Chopstick remedy will still apply. Actually, I suspect this middle finger (a product

    To Martin's reply - My t1803 has no voltage switch. It took me only a few minutes to realize why you ask. The 1801 operates on different voltage, which means (of course) its radio would require that voltage. It would be like putting diesel fuel in a gasoline car. Oh well. JackM
