  • Re: Looking for a replacement Cartridge for my Beogram RX2

    [quote user="frankiepancakes"]I have also read some places that just some minor tone arm adjustment can fix some frequency response issues. [/quote] Check/set the tracking weight, if it is still correct you could try a little higher than advised for MMC5 as its suspension may have aged and gotten stiffer. [quote user="frankiepancakes"]It currently has a MMC5 on it. I read that MMC3/4/5 are compatible.[/quote] You are correct. MMC1-5 will work. 20EN is too big (older model). A

  • Re: Restoring a Beosystem 8000, lots of questions

    If you want to use a beolink 1000 with BM8000 you need the IR Code Converter 8089017, not the boxes you mention, those are for creating links throughout the house for listening to music in other rooms.

    PS: I have one but it is not that awesome, it works fine but BL1000 has so many buttons you will never use on a beolab 8000 system...the original remote works much more natural with the system. Maybe an old 'audio terminal' (rare audio only BL1000 type remote) would be nice with it, it doesn't have all the useless TV/sattelite/etc buttons.

    Congratulations, that is a great find especially at that price! You have bought yourself one of the very best systems B&O ever made. I am using a beolab 8000 system myself at the time minus the MS150's, I have M100's. Restoration was a lot of work but very much worth it and I learned a LOT from it. Some of my experiences: BM8000: - grab Dillen's cap kit unless you want to count every cap in the service manual. Bad caps will cause failures now or later. Plus, sound will improve a lot

    - do I change the internal wiring? Why would you want to do that? Thicker wire wouldn't hurt but what's already in there will do just fine. - do I install a set of regular, good quality speaker plugs or are the DIN cables more than sufficient in terms of quality? The DINS will be fine. Never gave me any problems, plus easy plugging/unplugging! - is the factory dampening material sufficient or should I use this opportunity to "upgrade"? What's in there already does what it's

  • Re: Best CRT for retro video games?

    I still use my beovision 8902. Indestructible, big screen, good picture, great sound quality from the big loudspeakers. The retro look has to be your thing though, it looks great with my beosystem 8000 but for more modern B&O the MX8000, 7000 or 6000 would suit better, or LX6000, LX2802.

  • Interesting tech video on how digital signals work

    Not sure if this is on topic enough in the workbench, but as technology minded B&O fan I found this video explaining about digital signals and sampling very interesting and very well made. Thought I'd share! http://xiph.org/video/vid2.shtml

  • Re: Beovox S75 vs M150

    S75 is a closed box design, M150 has bass ports. I doubt there will be a big difference in the bass frequencies. Plus, there is more to life than woofers! S75 is part of the 'audio' range of B&O loudspeakers, M150 belongs to the top of the line 'monitor' range. For the higher frequencies you will probably be better off with the M150's. They were the best B&O had to offer in their time, save maybe MS150's (although those are the same except for addition of a subwoofer
