  • Re: Beovox M75 and other cabinet restoration

    It’s been awhile, but I fixed the corner of a P45 or P30 cabinet. You have to pull the Aluminum out, straighten it, then reinsert. Of course you also have to repair the corner with some glue. As already stated, though, that’s the least of your concerns.

  • Re: Recommendations on shops to rebuild BeoGram 5500 turntables?

    Amina Audio (Benny Amina) has repaired many of my B&O pieces. Benny is in suburban Atlanta. There are several technicians on the Tapeheads web site that could repair your RX202. Personally, I would see if “Perry” were taking on new work now that his move is complete. I have purchased 2 decks from him (Yamaha K1020, Aiwa F800) and they are fantastic. It’s worth having a look around the Tapeheads site. You may find you just need to replace belts and/or an idler tire. I took a non working Nakamichi

    At the risk of a moderator’s ire for nonB&O chatter...... And an apology for a thread-jack...... Been following John’s posts for years and only now find out he’s got a Dragon?!?! And he’s the original owner? What other “Grail” pieces do other’s have lying about?

    Sounds a lot like my experience with the BC5000 I tried to repair, except the part where I break a PCB while trying to attach the counter belt. If I recall correctly, I just boxed mine up and sent it to McAllen, Texas.

    The 8004? Really? I have one that was serviced by Benny Amina and I am just not a fan. I prefer and really like my 1900 and 2400, but my favorite deck is the 4500. It is just a fantastic 2 head deck. For playback it’s right up there with my 3 head Yamaha K1020 and Nakamichi BX300. After moving house my current dining room (main) system consists of the BC4500, CDX, BG4002, BM4000, and S45-2s. Love this system.

  • Re: Rx2 vs Rega Planar 3, Possible Rx2 Upgrades Available?

    I am not going to compare the RX2 to the tables you mention as I have no experience with them. What I will tell you is that I have owned one since 1992 (I now own and use 2 of them) and it has never needed service except new cartridges. I own and use 4 other tables (because I can), but I would have been happy just with the RX2 and a new cartridge every ten years. The fault you describe is fixed with a flat head screw driver in literally 2 minutes. Get your table back before they break it or lie to

  • Beosystem 5000 with Infinity Kappa

    I would read your M70 thread. Welcome to the M70 club. To all the other M70 owners out there, I still have 2 spare woofers. Edit: to be clear - not for sale. For free to save an otherwise dead pair.

    [quote user="Søren Mexico"] [quote user="Rich"]It is fun to watch our virtual friends working on their stereos, it’s true. But I got to tell you, I don’t miss working on stuff myself. I think the last thing I did was fix the motor of a Nakamichi BX-300, and that was at least 2 years ago. [/quote] Its quite understandable Rich, I started out with a BM 1000 from the US bay, just surfing there for an amp/receiver and bid 15.00 USD on the BM just for the fun of
