  • Re: BeoVox 2600 Refurbishment

    [quote user="Evan"]One thing I didn't think about (until someone mentioned it a while back) was that polypropylene caps do not degrade like electrolytic caps, so the investment may be worth it if you like the speakers enough. I think my next recap project will be my BeoLab 5000's. Following those will likely be the S45-2's. I think poly caps will be the way to go for these as I don't see myself getting rid of either set EVAR. [/quote] With my first pair of M70s, I was hoping

    [quote user="sonavor"] The polypropylenes are a good replacement since they will probably never need replacing. However, once you get above 18uF they get pretty pricey (for crossovers with several capacitors to recap). So I let my pocketbook control what kind of replacement caps I try. It might sound like I would be skimping on producing an end result that is less than it could be but the original caps are electrolytic so I look at it as restoring the crossover to new condition.

    I recommend Meniscus as well. I met Mark at his house back in the summer of 1987 when I built my first set of speakers. I've spent at least $1000 with him over the years, maybe two grand. As for electrolytics versus polypropylene, I have some experience. I currently have two pairs of Beovox M70s. Pair number one in my main listening room has had the damping material replaced, all the resistors replaced, and all the electrolytic capacitors replaced with Solen polypropylene capacitors. I'm

  • Re: Album Cover Art

    Elephant: you would like my Roger Waters "Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking" cover. I did this exact project before I got married: 2 rows of 3 album covers in a 36" x 24" "poster frame." I used: Sex Pistols "Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols" Rolling Stones "Black and Blue" The Clash "London Calling" U2 "War" J. Geils Band "Love Stinks" Public Image Limited "Album" The Beatles "Revolver,"

  • Re: Cloning a Cona

    I built a couple subwoofers back in the late 80s using Madisound's 8 ohm, 12" DVC driver. One was for a buddy who had a pair of very small Infinity bookshelfs (bookshelves?). The Madisound at the time was meant for a sealed cabinet on the small side (box wasn't much different than about a 14" cube). We rolled that one off with an 18 dB/octave high pass filter with no low pass on the Infinitys (Infinities?). The second was for my uncle's Bose 901's - Series II I think. We

  • Re: Beomaster 1900 - MM or MC?

    Congratulations on picking up a BM1900 - I have one myself. Yes, MM cartridges will work with the BM1900. Although I have no personal experience with MC cartridges with the BM1900, I do not believe they would work with the BM1900 without an additional step-up phase between cartridge and receiver. If using a non-B&O turntable you may need an adapter cable.

  • Re: What's playing RIGHT NOW?

    I've been streaming on Netflix the Classic Album documentaries. Tonight, I'm half done with listening to the last four records I "watched" on Netflix. Cream's "Disraeli Gears" and Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" down, Tom Petty's "Damn the Torpedoes" and Steely Dan's "Aja" to go. And oh by the way, I've fallen hopelessly in love with Christine McVie.
