  • Re: Replacing grey Beomaster 3500 cover with chrome version

    I quite like the grey on my Beosystem 3500. If it isn't badly scratched I can imagine why someone would want to change it. Wouldn't it devalue the system? I'm more for keeping things original as possible. The grey and black go perfectly together and its so easy to keep clean unlike the polished finish. Just my thoughts!

    I bought one of the last beomaster replacement glass panels from B&O. It was for a 4500 but I used it on my 3500 and apart from the extra little window for the timer there is no difference at all. Everything worked perfectly. Actually I told B&O it was for my 3500 and that is what they sold me.

    [quote user="Dennis"] [quote user="Leslie"] [quote user="Dennis"]Internal there aren't any difference except for the SW as far as I am concerned (Although I remember, that the first BM3500 weren't 2-way compatible due to some missing hardware (IR Diodes?)) I do also believe, that some of the BM4500 glass panels had a IR window in it, but that's the only differences I can think of [/quote] Ever tried to exchange a 3500/4500 glasspanelboard?

    [quote user="Søren Hammer"] The Beovox 5700 has to be one the top three speakers from B&O in the 70's - up there with the Beovox S75. [/quote] I was just about to sell my mint Beovox 5700, guess I should change my mind!! Plus I have mint Beomaster 4400.....the perfect set then!

  • Powerlink curiousity

    Just out of curiousity......when I connect my Beolab 8000's to my Beosystem 3500, the amp of the Beomaster is obviously bypassed. My question is does the amp switch off or does it still function? So if you turn up the volume is the amp of the Beomaster also working pushing out power?

  • Beolab 8000 disassembling frustration!!

    Hey...my one Beolab 8000 went dead. I've heard one should check the fuses inside. I have taken every screw I can see out and I still cannot get the amp section to come out. I'm scared to pull too hard incase I damage something. If I missed something obvious? I'm so frustated!! Thanks for any advice or help! Ben

  • Beolab 8000 dead end!

    As posted in a previous post. One of my Beolabs died. Was playing, Switched if off and came to find it dead. It doesn't seem to be the fuses, so it must be the standby transformer. Now the problem is that B&O SA refuse to sell me the part. Want me to ship the entire speaker to the other side of the country for it to be repaired. The cost of transport plus repair would be very expensive. Do I have any other alternative. Is there anyway I can get a transformer? I am able to change it myself

  • Re: Your B&O story

    My story starts in the early 90's when I was a child. My parents had a friend whose husband had bought a B&O sysytem in the late 70's. He had already passed on by the time I met her. It was a Beomaster 1900, Beogram 4002, Beocord 2400 and Beovox S55. My paren'ts had heard of B&O but to me it was completely new. I remember going to watch movies there and instead of watching the tv I'd be staring at the B&O in awe thinking how amazing it looked. Then in 1995 she left the
