  • Beosystem 5000 with Infinity Kappa

    [quote user="Martynka"] After a few days of listening to music on the M70, I find that: - they eat more power than infinity Kappa, 4 ohms vs 6 ohms and after one hour with 2/3 of the amplifier's power, the temperature protection switches Beosystem off, even though the fan is working. Today I will strip it and change the paste on the radiator. [/quote] This shouldn’t be. They are not that power hungry, and I’ve personally never seen or heard that fan work, even powering the M70 speakers

    Try switching it on with both amp modules disconnected. I’d do that first. Then plug back each amp separately and see what happens. The left side cooler does get quite warm, that’s normal. So to me this is a rather good sign, if anything.

    Hi Alf, No time to delve into that tonight but I’ll certainly be around! I have two working ones.

    Well, should you decide to give up on the etching, don’t worry, you will think about it for a while, then you’ll just forget about it. All you will behold is those fantastic Frede fascias and those superb sliders from Martin, not to mention the sound, which still amazes me to this day. Why did you go for satin instead of matte?

    Hi everyone, Søren et al! Well done, well done! My own CD50 I did 7 years ago (how time flies!) still works perfectly, and sounds as good as any other player.

    Like you Jeff, the Beovirus is dormant. I haven’t bought anything B&O for three years, but using it everyday nevertheless. Not sure I’m cured though.

    Buying new is just not possible for me. Way out of my league as a civil servant. I always buy used and not functioning albeit with mint or as-new cosmetics.

    Yes, the original feet contain humidity which is released when the rubber desiccates (dries out), unfortunately, hence the rust.

    Looking good! You'll see, that Beomaster is a truly excellent tuner. How do you intend to fix the back panel then? Here's a picture of mine to inspire you. My DIN sockets were rusty too, but not the panel itself.
