    Wooooooooooooooooow........ This is amazing! Dear Lee, Botty, fellow beoworld members, Thank you for being such a nice and helpful community! I have learned so much on electronics here over the years, and thanks to that I enjoy my old beolab 8000 system every day. Some of the most comfortable and luxurious hi fi ever made! Now I am being propelled into the digital age thanks to you... the future awaits! Thank you very much!

    The idle current has probably drifted. Adjustment is done as described in the service manual and in this post:

  • Re: Vintage Beogram 3000

    There are multiple kinds of BG3000, one tangential deck from the 80's and two radials with a wood plint from the 60's and 70's. Which one do you have? No power light or movement suggests no power is getting in at all. I'd start with checking the internal fuse, easy job.

  • Re: Speakers distort after 1hour of play Beocenter 7700 with S45-2 speakers

    Starts to distort and gets hot? Probably the no-load current is off, or there are electrolytic capacitors going bad. Replacing the electrolytic capacitors will help your beocenter sound as new. Adjust the no load current as per the service manual, probably a good thing to replace the potentiometers for the no load current as these often go bad in B&O devices this age.

  • Re: Beomaster/system 8000 - is it really superior

    The proof of the pudding will be in the eating! However, the beolab 8000 system was a tour de force, never matched in power or refinement by anything B&O made before or a couple of years after. It was the Beolab 5, or beolab 90 if you will, of its time! BM6500's internal amplifier is a souped up version of the amplifier that was in the smaller music systems, e.g. BC7700, at the time BM8000 was made. This is a nice sounding amplifier, but was made for smaller loudspeakers. If you want to use

  • Re: Beomaster 8000 Project

    Hi Sonavor, I think the seldom seen 'code converter' runs on a negative voltage. possibly this is what the connector is for? Handmade as a service by a tech savvy B&O dealer? The code converter, as mentioned on, for using a BL1000 with 80's B&O systems. Mine came with an aftermarket 9V adapter which has + on the ring and - on the tip. This -15V connector will probably do as well.

  • Re: What is the best TV B&O ever made?

    I'd like to make honorable mention of the beovision 8902. I used to have one as my main TV until last year. My SO and I found it started looking a bit dated. But... that was its only flaw! Great picture, beautiful color, superb sound from the big loudspeakers, a fine remote and balanced looks. And the best? Never once in its 30 years has it been repaired and it was still going strong. Now if that is not

  • Re: How best to hook up Pentas (mk1) to receiver without preamp outputs?

    Hi, Unfortunately your receiver is not the most suitable for connecting active B&O speakers. The hum and buzz you are hearing is a common problem when connecting beolabs to a headphone jack. What you need is a receiver with a volume controlled preamp out. Looking at the onkyo it should not be difficult to find a similar model with the same kind of inputs for not too high a price with this preamp out. Or, you could use the beomaster, it has similar inputs to the onkyo (tape, phono)

  • Re: Beovision MX7000 hum / buzz through speakers

    Thanks for the reply tournedos. Your story also points to the psu being the culprit. Did you recap the entire mx6000 or just certain parts?

  • Beovision MX7000 hum / buzz through speakers

    Hi all, I have a 1992 MX7000. It has great picture and sound except for one thing: very noticable buzz through the loudspeaker, getting louder the lighter the picture is. The buzz gets louder/softer with te colume control. Pressing mute makes the buzz disappear completely. What can I do about it? I am suspecting bad caps in the power supply. First step I'd take is replacing caps in the +/-5V , 8V and 15V PSU as trouble seems to start in the pre-amp or maybe tuner (buzz reacts to vol control so
