  • Re: S45's... How good!

    S45s are far better than they should be. It is simply serendipity. A combination of events that add up to a really great small speaker. I have one pair left - gave another set away as I wasn't using them and thought someone else should enjoy them. Not quite as good as my LS3/5As but that is when using AB1s so if just one against the other, the S45s would win by dint of actually having some bass. I remember buying my S75s new and the dealer, who was great, shaking his head and saying I was buying

  • Re: Beosystem 7000 (old) with Beolab 50(new)

    If you want the best Beogram and you want more heft, you need the Beogram 3000 Thorens, otherwise known as the Thorens TD124 Mk II. The bass knocks every other beogram into the dust. I suspect the record support has a fair bit to do with it - mine runs a 12" arm and a custom SP2 cartridge thanks to Frede. I have a 4000 which is a great deck and is beautifully made, but the 3000 sounds better.

  • Re: Pentas with extra subwoofer

    I use Penta3s/ BL4000s with a Beolab 2 - wonderful with the TV (Avant CRT DVD) but not so good with music. So I use my other system in the room to play music - Beogram 4000, Beomaster 4401 and M100s.

  • Re: Beoworld Fun

    I tend to agree - the fun went as the products became so similar to others on the market. And not working as well. In my case, I am also now working harder than ever and simply don't have the time that I did. When we first set up, I felt I knew all the products and could explain how they worked and gave a reasonably helpful opinion. I am now miles behind and my interest in the latest TVs can be seen in the fact that my 3 main TVs are a CRT Avant, a BV3 and a BV5!! Still fantastic and great sound

    It is anodised so very difficult to repair damage .

  • Re: Beosystem 5000 vs Beosystem 7000

    The Beomaster 5000 is the better amplifier but the CD7000 is better than the CD50. If you have the CD5500, and it is an earlier one without the singles CD recess, that is the best of all. (Depending on which TDA1541 is fitted! ) There is a lot to be said for the original radial Beogram 5000 - rather more sturdy and much better lit that the tangential decks that followed and debatable which actually sounds better. The Beocord 5000 is not autoreverse and so should at least be theoretically better than

  • Re: A Beogram 4000

    Planning to come down on Saturday - will set off in morning once Volvo packed! Will bring: Beovox 5000s - a present - you do realise these are not bookshelf speakers! Beovox 2500 - these can be on loan for a while! Beomaster 8000 - see if you can stop it clicking! MMC something - willl see which is worth having - a present I may bring you some more manuals as you clearly are far more likely to use them than me! Hopefully will pick up the Beolab 5000 which can take the place of the 8000!

    [quote user="Craig"] Peter Your a star.....the Beolab is working fine, has been in service for a couple of months without issue. I have no plans for the month end weekends and I'm home early Friday afternoons, I have an entire weekend to myself the 25th if your about? Craig [/quote] I'll sort out with Jo and see if I can bring the speakers down on the weekend of the 25th. I'll go though my cartridge collection and pick you out one - I have a distressing habit of giving bits

    I probably have a spare cartridge you can have if you want one of your own. I must drop you off the Beovox 5000s as well and pick up the Beolab!
