  • Re: Beogram 3000 / 1202/1203

    I recognise your conundrum! Many years ago I had the opposite decision to make and eventually traded my Beogram 4000 for an LP12, a decision I now regret. You ask about the Beogram 3000 and the Beogram 1202. They are mechanically the same deck, the differences being the platter and the cover, where the 3000 wins out by dint of better record support and an elegant hinged cover. The best cartridge for either turntable is probably an SP12, with its elliptical stylus. The 1203 is a different deck altogether

  • Re: Ambiophonic Stereo - is it really that good?

    Hi Joshua, I tried the ambio facility on my Beomaster 4400 some years ago with S45.2s as the main speakers and Beovox 1702s as the ambio speakers. I found the sound from the 1702s offered some filling out of the overall soundstage on some recordings and indeed on some live FM broadcasts. This was principally on classical recordings from good recording locations/concert halls and my sense was that it worked best with simple recording techniques from the early days of stereo rather than with the multi

  • Re: Compatable Speakers for BeoMaster 3000-2

    Two very nice pieces of vintage B&O. The Beovox 3800s, with their 12” bass unit were a specific speaker produced for the U.K. market to take advantage of the purchase tax regulations pertaining at the time. They are uncommon beasts now and the beautiful trumpet stands made for them are as rare as the proverbial hens’ teeth. As for other suitable speakers, that would to some extent depend on a number of factors, not least the home environment. For example, how big a room would you be listening

  • Re: CD Player compatible with Beocenter 7700

    You have probably the best music centre ever made by B&O! I’ve owned the similar 7007 and if I remember rightly there is a Tape 2 input on both of these Beocenters which is line level and has RCA phono sockets. The best B&O CD player to match both aesthetically and electrically would be the Beogram CDX. This was a variation of the Phillips CD104 and has a pretty well bulletproof CD mechanism and an excellent chip which still sounds good today. It also comes with RCA phono plugs so it’s just

  • Re: Best Tuner B&O ever made?

    [quote user="seethroughyou"] So what makes this late 1960s Tuner so much better than modern tuners or more recent B&O tuners/beomasters? Were the components super high quality or the implementation? [/quote] Excuse the delay in replying but I was hoping that someone with a more technical persuasion would respond. Anyway, for what it’s worth here’s my understanding of why it’s so good. This view owes much to Tim Jarman’s book on collecting B&O and his review of the Beomaster 5000

  • Re: Best Tuner B&O ever made?

    Arguably the best tuner made by B&O is the Beomaster 5000 from the late sixties/early seventies. Tim Jarman reviewed it in his vintage slot in HFNRR in 2012 and it came out very well indeed. Our own Adam Smith (Adam S) wrote about it on another site, saying “.....original Beolab 5000 amplifier and Beomaster 5000 tuner are stunners - my own Beomaster 5000 tuner was actually bought new by the BBC in 1968 and spent 40 years in Broadcasting House monitoring the output of GLR!” My personal favourite

  • Re: What Are You Reading Now?

    [quote user="vikinger"] As a (when they existed) Saab enthusiast, I recently discovered a book called 'Water Music' 'of 'Salmon Saab’s and Spey Rods' by David Swanson and published by Meadow Run Press. There are two limited edition versions of this book, currently on AbeBooks with prices from £9 to £800 or thereabouts. I bought a lower priced limited edition (1500) signed by the author. What a beautifully presented book it is, in a clam case. (I've since noticed

    Jeff, I may have a ‘rabbit’s ears’ antenna somewhere that I’m sure will fit the 2400. I’ll have a dig around in my spares box and email you. Cleve
