  • Re: Beomaster 4400 Power Supply / Damage

    Hello Graham, There should be a voltage selector on the rear of the unit. Otherwise, I do have a spare Beomaster 4400 mains transformer laying around if you want to have it - it can be yours for the shipping cost

    [quote user="valve1"] Congrats on your exam results Soren well done ! Good to see you are going into the 5000 range, enjoy. [/quote] Thanks Eddie! I wasn't expecting it to sound so good, maybe I should rotate my system for a while? Beolab 5000, Beogram 4000 and Beocord 1800 open reel deck instead of the Beolab 8000 system

  • Re: Your latest addi(c)tion?

    Wow, there has been quite a few additions since I was here last time! I finally have some spare time to tinker with stuff again, between work and school. My semester exam in marine engineering ended with A+ so the time was spent well I guess. My addition from some time ago was a sad looking Beolab 5000 amplifier that was given to me by the primary school it belonged to. No lamps working, the bass slider was disabled by fixed resistors and one of the slider bodies were in terrible shape. The unit

  • Re: Cassette Tape

    All tapes would sound a little different on your deck; everything including sensitivity, brightness and bass response. Generally there are a couple of assumptions: Type I tape is the ordinary ferric tape which is the only type still available new. It is generally a great tape for rock and pop music as the bass response is very good and involving - treble is a bit grainy and undefined but still very good with a nice tape that can be recorded very hot. Type II is a chrome or ferricobalt formulation

    What a shame. Glad that I managed to talk to him a couple of years ago, he was a true gentleman.

  • Re: Questioning B&O quality

    [quote user="9 LEE"] Sorry for your accident Soren. I too hope you recover well - and Jeff too! From my own experience, the V8000 issue is down to one tiny cog on the end of a steel spindle. The plastic goes brittle, cracks, and the cog then just spins on the rod. Way too much for one little component to take - and even if you glue it, it gives way shortly and the loading mechanism fails again. [/quote] Thank you Lee, I'll do my best! Regarding the breaking cog, it reminds me of some

  • Re: Questioning B&O quality

    [quote user="Jeff"] [quote user="Søren Hammer"] The 8000-series (90's ones) are pretty average build quality, I think they were made by Hitachi like a lot of other Beocord VCR's. For an example, the VX4500/5500 are ver good machines but every small electrolytic capacitor needs replacing for trouble free operation. The pówer supply and capstan motor driver heats up a lot, you'd like to invest in at least 105°C electrolytics for the most part. Broke

  • Re: For all of you that carry music on an SD card in your phone or tablet

    [quote user="Orava"] Yes, exatly same thing what we had(have) with tapes. [/quote] Aww, my TDK "CD Power" cassette sounds horrible when recording from vinyl records... The "Techno Silver Back Coat" was groovy! Maxell also had "Energy Efficient Cassette" labelled on one type of shell. Sony's top of the line shells were made of some kind of ceramic material for less friction. In open reel tape, the coolest designs of metal reels were often the most popular
