  • Re: I got lucky with my newly-acquired BM6000 4 ch., except........

    I may be using the term incorrectly. My impression is that "capacitive switches" are like the elevator buttons that don't move at all when you touch them. There is no tactile feel to them, but the elevator arrives at your floor. I also have them on my microwave. Hate them. You're never really sure you hit the button right. I must have misread an article about some other unit having capacitive switches. Somehow I think I might have liked the tabs on the 6000 being "that way"

    Update, of sorts - I have opened it up and found nothing that looks wrong. Surprisingly clean inside for its age. Nothing looks out of place, tampered with, replaced, upgraded or ever even touched, although there is a tag on the outside of the bottom indicating it received some service in the 1980s. From my readings, it is an "early" 6000 owing to the fact that the "stereo" light is green, not red. I've been dancing around this forum, looking for the name of the B&O dealer

    You mean someone would actually do that??? No, I'm looking to trade my white trim or case to get rosewood. Although, since my unit suddenly doesn't power up at all, this may be a moot point. I should have time later this week to open it up and try to coax it back to life. JackM

    Thank, Jacques, at least one question solved. However, things have taken a turn for the worse since my original post. Now, it doesn't power up at all. I will open it up this weekend, with fingers crossed and hopes diminished. JackM

    Either bad spelling, or bad typing ---- in no. 5 it should be a white "plynth" I want to trade for rosewood. JackM

  • I got lucky with my newly-acquired BM6000 4 ch., except........

    When I paid for this Beomaster 6000 4-channel unit, I knew it was chancy. But I'm not complaining: it's useable as is and all those Quadraphonic LPs will make for a delightful winter. But there are a few things that I'm hoping I can make better. I hope it's okay to make a list in hopes I can get your help. As far as I can tell, everything WORKS!! Speaker outputs all work, all the buttons work, radio sounds good. I haven't plugged anything into any of the inputs, but all outputs

  • Beomaster 4000 lost one channel

    I messed up - big time. Having found myself a very pretty BM4400, it was time to clean up the 4000 and make it ready to sell (I just like the silver face, that's all). I shined it up and took a bunch of photos. Got all I needed, up to getting a shot of the Type label on the back. Stupidly, I lifted the rear a few inches into the air, then, it slipped, hit the table with a big thud. I gradually got up the courage to plug it back in and see if the drop caused any....yup, it did. No left channel

  • Re: Modern speakers with vintage B&O?

    MP3 is such a waste - quantity over quality. But then I don't want to fiddle with 12" LPs in the car. I think I passed up a set of S45's locally recently on Craigslist. But then I have enough projects to keep me busy come winter, and the KEF system, so I'll watch for future opportunities. Capacitors are on everybody's "hit list" (a zillion to be replaced in the BM6000 4-ch.); I don't go anywhere without my soldering iron. Thank for the help, guys. I think I'm

  • Re: Modern speakers with vintage B&O?

    ITunes? Bluetooth? Nooooooo, Mister Billlll. Point well taken. Although I would then wonder which vintage B&O speakers might be best. A secondary reason for my question is: don't speakers dry out over the decades? Speaker cone paper, foam rim, etc. After putting up my previous post, I recalled that my basement holds my trusted pair of Jensen 3-way Shelf speakers that I also bought in 1964. I can't imagine them being nearly as good as the KEFs. Might try them, just for the exercise. So
