  • Buying Vintage

    hi- this is my first post, so hello everyone! I'm searching DBA, in CPH, for my first Beomaster. I see what I consider good deals in the BM5000/5500 range. BUT, no one has speakers for me to listen and see if the units actually work. Does this series use the same amp for the headphone jack? If I take headphones, plug them in, and get audio, can I feel assured that passive speakers will be powered also? thanks for any help, and all the info I've gleaned from previous week of lurking! :) Dave

    that makes a lot of sense. I was originally planning to drive out to Odense to a shop there, as he shows some very good inventory, but then saw some scary posts about his past deals on these forums. I went to the B&O dealer in Lyngby today, and they suggested SBR Electronics (their local repair shop). I will check with them on which models are easiest to repair or get parts for, and focus on those. DBA is just so enticing....

  • Beocenter 9500 powering off

    Hi all, Yesterday, I brought home my first BC9500! So excited! It played Radio and Aux fine, although only through speakers2 (small concern, but I figured I'd deal with it later). Today, when I try to use it, it powers up, then immediately shuts itself down. Does not matter which function, same result. :( I've seen some previous posts that allude to similar behavior, but I've cleared all timer settings, and still same. any suggestions?

    CB - I see you are super strong in the "what's playing now" thread, but just find it funny you posted ' listening to music is why we have B&O speakers '. I admit I'm absolutely new to the hobby/forums, but I love the systems . I feel bad that B&O has become strictly a speaker company, and lost the amps, turntables, and even tape decks that first attracted me. I wish they would produce some sort of Back to the Future anniversary Beocenter or Beosystem! :)

    Some people who identify themselves as "Pure Audiophiles" will say that with B&O you pay extra for the design, and not just the sound. And I love that! My music doesn't play 24 hrs a day, but my stereo has to sit in my living room along with my other art and my furniture. I'm happy to pay a premium for something a designer labored over, and not just a black metal box connected to 2 wooden boxes!

  • Re: What's playing RIGHT NOW?

    From what I can tell, the lyrics are mostly samesame. I really like the synth loop, and what's either a competing synth, or maybe guitar? Also, the beat is faster with both live drums and drum machine. You could call it a dance-mix version, but I think it's definitely a different direction, and that's always cool. Who wants to hear some dude covering it with a bad Springsteen impression? blecch.

    [quote user="jonprocter"] [/quote] ahhhh! The Talking Heads! Is this the last huge band we are hoping gets back together for one last tour? Forever, it was the Police, then they toured. I can think of Talking Heads and Rage Against the Machine.

  • Re: If I were the B&O CEO

    There are two brands I immediately think of, that were in similar situations. Porsche and Apple. Both were (and still are) seen as over-priced and paying a premium for the marque. What saved both? Fans of the brand may not have loved them, but the Boxster, and the iMac brought new users and cash. Is BeoPlay the answer? I'm not sure about that. I think a truly exciting product, at a realistic price-point is the start. Once consumers love their €1000 item, they are intrigued by the €5000
