  • Re: On the official website, new B&O BeoPlay TV V1

    Good to see you back on the forums, Paul!! I watch videos on my laptop as well (a very infrequent activity really), but nothing deserving of such an amazing display. I do use a 4th generation iPod touch 64GB for listening although it is losing its precedence over CDs and my uprising vinyl collection. I use it extensively on the move and at school/work etc. I would love to see some new headphones come from B&O. This, IMHO should have been their first segment entry with BeoPlay! I auditioned the

  • Re: Disappointed With Music On B&O System

    Agreed - the room and its size can be the biggest factor in audio reproduction. I would also advise ditching the BL2 (at least for music). This sub can sound a bit sloppy and is really only recommended for movie/HT/LFE setups. Speaking of stereo vs. surround - make sure you are listening to music program material in stereo only and surround material in its respective multi-channel playback. Also, how are the speakers placed in relation to the listening position/sweet spot? Try creating the most equilateral

  • Re: What's playing RIGHT NOW?

    Well I've heard of tube rolling and DAC rolling but I've never heard of CD player rolling. This is currently what I am doing now..... (I think I've gone absolutely crazy). For the past couple months I have had my $7 NAD playing and recently noticed some new sounds. As you may have guessed, they aren't good sounds. Specifically upper range distortion is what I heard and quickly replayed the same track on my iPod (ALAC file) and then on my BeoGram, the CD transport was the odd source

  • Re: Beolab 5000 Speakers

    Ducha, Please buy the system - it will keep me from buying it This sale is a HUGE temptation to me. Elms and I are at an advantage too - only 4ish hours away. You better get moving!!! PS - BL5K's are epic loudspeakers, I will never be without my set. If the hum is audible in both channels it is likely the BeoMaster, if only one channel then likely a single BeoLab. Like the others have said, a capacitor will probably be at fault. I will go further to say (more like guess) that the problem is a

  • Re: BeoVox 2600 Refurbishment

    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 user="sonavor"] Congrats on a job well done. One thing about the new polypropylene caps is they should never require changing. [/quote] Thanks, John. It was a relatively easy job, but I don't want to do it again! As for the recapped and original test, I did not forget about you. Unfortunately luck was not working in our favor and I had refurb'ed the better off speaker. The speaker still in original form was indeed the one with considerably less output. Even though I had little

    [quote user="Todd"]"Evman, back at the workbench in "True Form" As Leslie says..."my compliments as well" Kinda takes me back! Looks like 2600's will sing well![/quote] Yes, it has been a while since I have been to the workbench, so I thought I would knock out a project. I knew it would be a small one but it makes me feel much better having accomplished it - one less project on the list!! As for singing, its what they were meant to do! They are no S45-2, but

  • Re: BeoVox 2600 Refurbishment

    OK, so I finished them up a few minutes ago and have also raised them up onto the S45-2s. As I said above, the problem of unequal output has been resolved. I am very grateful caps is all it took, I wouldn't have had the patience to find another driver like Todd and I had to last year. At any rate, I must say - these speakers are wonderful! Very soft and laid back tone, but also very capable in the bass department if your in that kind of mood. Here at my house it is 2:40AM and the rest of the

    [quote user="Leslie"] That's all there is? Where's the rest? How much did you paid for the caps Evan? Again my compliments for this new picturized thread. Still I have my doubts if you can really hear the difference after recapping. Must try such a project with all my Beovoxes I own. Please continue.... [/quote] Yep, that's it! The 2600 is a very simple two-way speaker. Makes for a great weekend project. I paid 34.46 USD including shipping. Well, not every recap is the same

  • Re: BeoVox 2600 Refurbishment

    Here is the final product! There you can see the difficult four-point solder - not very proud of this joint but it is working, all connections are solid. At this point it is a good idea to add some hot glue between the capacitors and the board to keep the from rattling around. After all, they sit directly behind the woofer.
