  • Re: Re-covering beolab 6000 grills

    It's probably too late, but if you go to the store and buy some black stockings (pantyhose) it is literally the exact same material as the 6000 frets, really easy to work with, and conveniently already sized for the 6000s. AND people have two legs so you only need one box. Stick them on with hot glue on the back and you are good to go!

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

    [quote user="Evan"] Personally, I would like to see a replacement for the BeoLab 4. I am moving onto campus soon and wont have room for an 840w BeoSystem. A well executed pair of desktop/bookshelf BeoLabs would fit the bill perfectly. Until then I am left dreaming of Fostex/JBL/KRK monitors etc. [/quote] You have a beautiful set of s45's that dream of working campus duty. You'd be surprised living on campus how often you need loud speakers too...

  • Re: BeoPlay A3 iPad Dock

    [quote user="Chris Townsend"]We all use IPads at work as we can sift through all our manuals, and infrequently when sat with bugger all to do or in our hotel we watch films on them. But lugging round a 1 kg speaker dock wouldn't really be that appealing even if it wasn't just being lugged around in a flight bag. [/quote] I agree... It seems to me that you may as well get a Beolit 12 or beosound 8. The construction of the A3 doesn't really seem to be that great (lots of cheap

  • Re: !! BeoPlayA3 !!

    Yes! I'm not sure how I feel about it though... A loooot of cheap looking plastic. I also think its a product for a market that doesn't really exist. Why wouldn't you just get a Beosound 8 for what I would assume to be only a little bit more money?

  • Re: Value of BeoVox Cona?

    Evan sold his for a modest price (no offense to you Evan, but you did ). Realistically you could probably start at around $150-200. $300 is probably a bit high, but you might be able to pull that much if you really try...

  • Re: BeoCenter 2500 sliding doors fault

    I know if there are any fluorescent lights in the room, sometimes it can react to those. Otherwise, if you're handy, I would suggest testing the sensor with a multimeter, although it is quite difficult to get to.

  • Re: Flash your B&O - new thread!

    [quote user="elephant"] so while I don't have as nice a set-up as elms I thought I would show the baby that arrived almost 3 years ago: [/quote] I'm flattered, but to be quite honest, the setup you have is nothing to laugh at! It may not appear as flashy, but BV 8s are exceptionally nice! And not one but two! I believe I have something to aspire to. Great setup

  • Re: Beolab 5000 Speakers

    I believe I was considering that exact system! In the Detroit area? $400 for a set of Beolab 5000s is a steal, let alone a semi-working Beosystem to go with it. Beolab 5000s are a rare beast, and are some of the better speakers B&O has made. I would have jumped on it, but I plan on building some speakers this summer, and I need to save money for that. As for the humming, it is likely a bad capacitor. If it is something worse, it is probably not the speakers. I say you should jump on it! You don't

  • Re: Beolab 6000 Amp Removal

    Unfortunately I do not have the metal bit either. I need the whole deal... I appreciate the suggestion though. I will keep him in mind should I experience particularly tough recover.

  • Re: Beolab 6000 Amp Removal

    After looking into it a bit more, you're probably right. I bought the 6000s to flip/pay for my penta project. I likely wont bother with caps on the 6000s. Now the real question is where to get replacement frets for cheap...
