  • Re: Advice on passive speaker combination

    Hi, Here’s a link to the relevant piece on Tim Jarman’s Beocentral site https://beocentral.com/beovox1200-1970s As for my avatar, they are electrostatic loudspeakers, the Braun LE 2s. They are Dieter Rams’s reworking for of the original Quad electrostatic speakers the ESL 57, designed by Peter Walker in 1957. I had a pair of the original Quads 20 years or so ago and even today that are still capable of outstandingly accurate sound. I have always fancied a pair of the Braun LE2s to use with a white

  • Re: Advice on passive speaker combination

    As no one else has responded to your query (yet) here are my thoughts. I’m sure a pair of CX50s will work with a Beomaster 1001, either as main or ambio speakers but I’m not sure how well. According to Tim Jarman, who should know a thing or two about older B&O, and ‘Peter‘ on this site, the amplifier in the Beomaster 1200/1001 has particular characteristics and performs best with the speakers it was designed to be used with - the Beovox 1200/1001. Tim, on the relevant page of his ‘Beocentral

  • Re: Beovox 5000 with Beomaster 8000 or 4400

    I’ve owned both the Beomasters you mention and regard them both very highly - arguably B&O’s best sounding amplifiers. I’ve heard the Beolab 5000s (Beovox 5000s with a Sanyo built hybrid amp built in) but wasn’t greatly impressed. However speakers are a very personal thing and if the sound of the Beovox 5000s appeals, then fine. If panel speakers are the only option, I’d also consider the P45s. These are excellent, neutral speakers if a bit bass light but I’ve used them with both the 4400 and

    Steve, Didn’t Adam Smith (‘AdamS’ on this site) take his Beosystem (Beolab)8000 to HiFi Wigwam a few years ago? Cleve

  • Re: Beoworld Fun

    I’ve been reading this thread with great interest. Not sure if I qualify as one of the old guard (been a member for 10 years) but I would certainly qualify as one of PaulW’s ‘pipe and slippers’ brigade! Like many others I’ve noticed a slight shift in the tone of the site, perhaps because many of the older members no longer post. Whether that means it is less ‘fun’, I’m not so sure. That shift is arguably to a less robust, more overtly ‘sensitive’ style of commentary perhaps designed to avoid giving

    [quote user="Jason "] Hi Lee, Good luck with your stop gap . We are turning away stock daily here as we are moving mostly to the restoration of the vintage B&O which we have been doing for the last few years and was always where my passion lay, our days of 2000 miles a week are finally over forever, swapped for time at home with our 2 beautiful rescued Shepards , im happy to send equipment your way , especially the newer stuff that holds no interest to me We had a good run while it

  • Re: Beocord 1900 > Beocenter 3500

    Welcome to Beoworld, The Beocord 1900 is certainly compatible with the Beocenter 3500, as are virtually all the other cassette decks sold by the company. If you particularly like the styling of the 1900 you might want to have a look at the 2400 as well. Visually virtually identical but with slightly better mechanics and the capability of using metal tape. Cleve
