  • Re: Using non B&O cartridge in B&O Turntables

    I wouldn't bother - you risk damaging the tone arm and this will reduce the value of the turntable. You can get decent second hand retipped cartridge's on ebay - I bought one for my 4002 until I can afford to get a really decent one. That cost me £150 and works really well and I can keep it later as a spare. The other problem as others have mentioned will be the alignment, the arm mass maybe unsuitable and depending on the Beogram you may not get enough tracking force. There is over

    Fantastic - thanks for posting these - it really is a design classic. I think there was a similar paper published for the BM4400 - I wonder if that will be next but with a black front panel and updated with streaming, internet radio etc. etc or a BM1900/2400 - I doubt it though

  • Re: Beogram 3000 Type 5228

    Thanks for the feedback - yes the locking pin is in place, but it is quite high up so I'm not sure how that would affect the cog? I've taken it apart again and cleaned everything ad then put it back together - the auto stop is still working and you can hear the mechanism in action but it's as if it's not catching on the lug thing to pull the arm to the start of the record - yet it catches it to return the arm? I don't know if anyone has a picture of the mechanism how it should

    Hi Solderon - many thanks - I did spray them with some silicone lubricant - I didn't see a locking pin though - could you let me know where this is - also should both the clear tabs be pointing outwards? Thanks again Once other question - I have the motor running very quietly but when you engage the flywheel this does give a rumbling noise, I tried some rubber renew on it and this softened it slightly, but I am wondering if the idler wheel is just worn or if they do actually make a noise simply

    I managed to sort out the auto-return but now the autostart doesnt work! - this is not such a big problem as I dont mind manually cueing the record and for me anyway it works out better. It seems that when I removed the nylon circular collar underneath the platter I must have put it back in incorrectly, I reinstalled and made sure that the red mark on it lined up with the red lever/switch thing and all works other than auto cueing. I have to say I love the look of it and from what I've heard

  • Beogram 3000 Type 5228

    I have a problem with my Beogram 3000 (1973 model). When record reaches the end the arm does not automatically lift up and return. If I left the arm up and move it towards the centre then the autoreturn kicks in. Auto start works fine - its just the picking up of the arm at the end of the record that doesn't work. Greatful for any ideas

  • Re: Beocenter 7700 how to

    Congratulations on your find - it's a great Music Centre. You don't need a separate amplifier as there is a very good one built in. You will need some speakers - there are 4 2 PIN DIN sockets on the back and you connect these to the speakers. You can use more or less any Passive Speakers with this, the recommendation would probably be Bang & Olufsen S45-2 or better. There's loads of information on this site. It maybe that the belt for the turntable has perished or is worn, but new

  • Re: Speaker suggestions

    Alternatively you could use your Beolink Passives with some new or second hand passive speakers and retain all the functionality you have at the moment. Depending on the speakers you get the sound quality should be very good. I replaced a Beolab 3500 with Beolink Passive and two S45-2 in my kitchen and the sound quality is excellent - however you need somewhere to put them as they obviously take up more room - for me it was on top of two shelves where they cant really be seen. You could always look

  • Beogram 3000 and Platters and cartridges

    So the Beovirus got the better of me and after saying I had had enough of unreliable beograms I bought a Beogram 3000 (early one) as i want it to go with my Quad 33/303 and M100-2 setup - I also have the FM3 tuner and just won the wooden case for the 33/FM3 on ebay - visually it should look stunning. The beogram came with a couple of faults, mainly noisy motor and I have taken that apart and lubricated it and also used some rubber renew on the idler wheel - it now runs quietly. The other problem

  • Re: Introducing BeoModern

    OMG - that is seriously cool - it is the very product I wanted - i just wanted to be able to sream music, play music on a USB stick and have easy access to Internet Radio plus an input for a turntable - this goes beyond what I would ever have imagined possible and I have to agree the best DIY solution I've ever seen. Fantastic.
