  • Re: BEO Mk1 Remote

    [quote user="Albatross"] Jeff. I am afraid my BEO4 Mk1 failed to come back to life after intense cleaning and drying. It registers TV (as it should) when set up but the only accessory it will drive is the VTape. and this in all aspects Load, unload, Reverse etc.,etc. ... maddening. I thank you again for your input. I will now try to find the Forum through which I can ask whether anybody has a remote at a sensible price. Albatross. [/quote] Sorry to hear that! Sometimes drying works, sometimes

    Sealing it in a plastic bag full of dry, uncooked white rice will help dry it out. This is a common thing to do with damp electronics like cell phones and such.

    BL4000s are a great small speaker, refined and delightful, and one of the most beautiful speakers I've seen. Far better looking than yet another pair of monkey coffins. They and the BL8000 still stand tall as design icons to me. Over here in the US they're harder to find, if/when I do find some at a good price, they will be mine!

    Just rewatched "The Big Lebowski" and the artist woman's loft had a B&O TV (tube), a BS9000 and a pair of BL8000s.

    Beautiful work Craig, excellent craftsmanship. Always enjoy seeing threads like these with repairs made by people who obviously love the old B&O gear.

    I think you usually see this kind of thing on this side of the gap in automotive or other harsh environment speakers. Being driven hard in a high temp environment can cause failures in the softening adhesives for things like the spider or cone/former attachment, often asymmetrical which can let the former scrape on one side like this, and it's not uncommon for the adhesives to rebond when the stress of temp and being driven hard is removed. Pressing on the caps as you describe is likely the root

    Or seriously overdriving the speakers sometime in their past.

    I sent this thead to a friend of mine who's a career audio engineer/speaker type. This is what he said when I asked if he'd seen this kind of thing before: " Yes, a pretty common failure when the coil is pounded against the back plate repeatedly. I can't think of another root cause. It often occurs with some other thermal failure like spider and/or cone neck joint (which can then cool after failure and re-set -- this makes it hard to diagnose)." Sounds like a symptom of beginning

    [quote user="vikinger"] Personally, I'm keeping away from voice control. Too many stories about people suddenly getting advertising for something they've mentioned in a private conversation, even though they were convinced that their mobile device microphone was supposedly turned off. Just wait until rogue political parties start exploiting this technology and are listening to your views..... Big Brother???

    Admire your work there. Are the ripples in the actual voice coil former material, or are they only on a surface coating? Could they be gently cut off, if it's a coating issue?
