  • Re: Beovox 2400

    I could be tempted to ask you, what YOU think of them ? My opinion is that Beovox 2400 is a nice, 3-way classic speaker from the late 1960's. It sounds fabulous with a contemporary receiver/amplifier and still more warm and pleasant with a modern amplifier than most modern speakers. I generally dislike the sterile sound coming from most modern speakers. Linearity and pretty figures on paper means less to me than pleasant sound. Others will disagree, I'm sure. Their power rating is not very

    [quote user="ablaumeise"] Martin, do you now where I could get a new tip for the antenna? I remember someone in Denmark sold those. (That wasn't you, was it?) [/quote] I don't think it was this type of knob. And it wasn't me. Martin

  • Re: Thread removed?

    Ideally, sales and wanted ads must be placed in the appropriate forum sections, alternatively in other forum sections where it would make better sense (local pickup in your country f.e.) but a membership minimum level of silver is asked for in any case. Martin

  • Re: New Penta Mid-range units?

    You can make anything fit physically as long as you have the DIY skills needed and the will to offer your speakers up to experiment. A 3" Full range WOOFER ? I never saw that before and I would never expect anything like that to sound good anywhere,really. And, knowing the crossover filters and cabinet properties of the Pentas, I would say that I doubt anything but the original drivers would sound any good in there. If I were you, I would have the original midranges refoamed and if you don't

  • Re: Beogram 8000 Aluminum Deck And Door Panel Reattachment

    [quote user="Leslie"] Double sided tape has been improved since 1955 Martin [/quote] Also since 1985 ? Surely, the butyl foam used hasn't improved a bit and that seems to be the problem. The sticky tape seems to hold on nicely (actually too good if you are to remove the old stuff). Martin (This is my second try at posting this. First time I got the server unavailable message screen - again !)

  • Re: Beogram 8000 Aluminum Deck And Door Panel Reattachment

    2-comp epoxy for the right side lid, liberal amounts of contact glue for the platter surround. I glue in a handful of metal washers under the right side lid in suitable thickness to compensate for the loss of the foam tape height and shim the panel to sit flush with the dustcover. Make sure you have the Beogram on a plain and smooth surface and all its rubber feet are present and good while you glue or the lid will not sit nice and/or conflict with the dustcover. Martin

  • Re: 4002 5513 platter motor runs BACKWARDS!

    If the motor is of the type with an electronic board inside that is soldered off two pins to access the rest of the motor innards, commutators etc., you got those two pins switched by inadvertently rotating the inner parts 180deg when you put it back together. If that is the case, take apart again, rotate the innards and put back together. Martin

  • Re: Beogram 3000 (Type 5228) – dead channel problem

    The SP cartridges are not commonly known to lose channels. Most faults of this nature are found in the signal cables, solders and plugs. Put an ohmmeter to the signal path from the cartridge socket to the DIN socket. Remember that the deck should be in play mode or the mute function will short bth channels to ground (and eachother).

  • Re: What Are You Working On Now

    Very nice Beolit project ! If it has AF126 transistors for the IF amps they should be fine but if it has the dreadful AF116 or AF117, I suggest you replace them on sight. They will short internally sooner or later and they can cause lack of sensitivity or even leave the set completely dead on reception. Martin
