  • Re: Beomaster 4400 Value

    But I also wouldn't sell the 4400 short either. If my BC3500 and BM5000 are any comparison to the 4400, I would rank it higher than many amplifiers and receivers I've owned and listened to over the past few decades. Amplifiers are not perfect so they do add to the sound, but the B&O seem to add less than most in my experience.

  • Re: MCL82 Cable

    [quote user="solderon29"] This cable is still available from B&O Dealers,but there has been a part No change,so they may say it's not available.You can make your own cables but the original is still neatest. Nick [/quote] Thanks, Nick. I'll give them a call. Do you know the new number? I just assumed that vintage wire would be gone by now.

    [quote user="elephant"] PS - what length(s) are you looking for just in case someone has spares lying around Beo-Ed :-) [/quote] Thanks - I probably should have mentioned that. I'll need about 30 feet of the cable if anyone has a spare length I can buy.

  • Re: S-45 issues

    If you have a meter, disconnect the S45 speakers from your stereo and take a resistance reading of each speaker as a comparison. If one has really low impedance, you may have a shorted voice coil inside. Open the bad speaker and check each driver to see which are bad - the woofer and tweeter may both be bad. It sounds like your woofer at least is damaged.

  • Re: Beomaster 5000 cannot communicate with MCP 5000

    I have seen this and in my case, I had to replace the MCP. Since it uses two way communication, it sounds like the MCP isn't transmitting or receiving signals, otherwise the BM would respond to your command (change volume, mute, etc.) but not send the result. I have also seen the command go through, but not be received by the MCP, due to operating at a too extreme angle from the IR eye. Otherwise, that MCP was just fine. Make sure your batteries are fresh and try again. If you look at the front

  • Re: Beogram 6500 with Beomaster 5500 issues..

    Make sure you are using the right speaker outputs. Output 1 are muted, output two are not. As far as the BG goes, you might have a bad cartridge. To test this, you can carefully remove the cartridge and put it in up side down. Put an old record on and press play. Catch the tone arm before it drops all the way down to the record and lightly brush the needle with your finger. See if the sound is still mono and if it switches channels.

  • Re: Ludicrous concepts

    Wait a minute, I thought the idea of the directional interconnects was due to the termination of the shield. On some cables, it was terminated at the source component end and left floating at the other end. I thought this was to eliminate ground loops and sink the noise at one location. Not so?

  • Re: Backlight dimming

    Backlight dimming is a trick to increase the potential contrast in an LCD screen. Older technology LCD displays would just have a fluorescent lamp to provide the light. The LCD panels would block the light to produce a picture. There would almost always be some light leakage. Then manufacturers started using LEDs for backlights which allowed them to be shut down during dark scenes, increasing the contrast level. Then they switched to zone backlighting - where they could keep some areas light while

  • Re: No RCA-output from Beomaster 5500

    You should connect the input of your computer to the Tape 2 output and then play any source but Tape 2/Aux such as CD or even your tuner as a test. Once you're ready to record, you can play your albums and select Phono as the source. Remember in your hookup, selecting Tape 2/Aux as your source would only provide sound if you have something connected to the Tape 2/Aux input. The Tape2/Aux output should always be active when any source is playing. The Preamp output would provide a variable level

  • Re: Advice for Beovox MS-150

    My advice would be to replace them all if you think you will replace any. The reason is that unlike resistors and inductors, capacitors have a limited lifespan. They degrade over time and need to be replaced to bring the circuit back to design spec. A reasonable estimate could be 15 years of age. I believe capacitors will even degrade on the shelf - they don't have to be in operation.
