  • Re: Today's equivalent of the Beogram 4000

    Nice insurance company! That combination is in excess of 650 GBP or over 700 EUR. Considering the age of the Beogram 4000 (1972 - 1974) I'd say you had a great deal with the Rega. I have no experience with that deck but the reviews I've seen are good. It's featured in a few Youtube videos and owners rave about it. I suppose you may be able to argue that its radial rather than tangential. If I was offerred that deal, I'd take it. I must check my insurance policy! Dave.

  • Re: Show us your car!

    Boy oh boy, what a nice selection so far. We currently have 9, yes, that's NINE cars at home at the moment! Classics list = 1973 Lotus Elan Sprint DHC - 15th from the last ever built. Rally prepared Renault Alpine A310 1980 Renault Alpine A310 - this was one of 7 Alpines bought and used as research tools by Lotus (for development of the Esprit) and DeLorean (for development of the DMC12). The engine was modified by Lotus from 2.7L and is now thought to be 2.9L but has never been confirmed. Only

  • Re: Beomaster 900 RG deluxe

    On the vinylengine website, a member states that the cartridge is a Shure M44-7 and can be used with a stylus N44-7 (conical) or a N44-E (eliptical diamond). The Garrard turntables can be found on A picture would be useful as there is a Garrard AT-6 (not AT-60) in MkI and II versions, as well as a 'model 60'. However, some members clearly have an AT-60. What cartridge is currently on there? Vinylengine has a comprehensive cartridge/stylus database at http://www.vinylengine

  • Re: beosound 9000 "cleaning required"

    Hi, having a quick look at the user manual (available to silver and gold members) 'cleaning required' refers to the two opto coupling sensors for the door mechanism. Switch off the Beosound, and clean out dust and dirt from the opto coupling sensors. I haven't got a Beosound 9000 but they are 'pegs' in the two corners above the cd rail in the main body of the Beosound. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL/ETHANOL. A dry clean should be enough, maybe with a soft brush?. The sensors stop the doors

  • Re: BEOGRAM 1202

    Just to reinforce Soren's thoughts on the oil - I use the same 'liquid bearings' oil and it is awesome stuff. It doesn't dry and as well as using it for my B&O applications, I also use it around the house for example on the bearings of ventilation fans (which used to be seized from one year to the next previously). One bottle lasts forever. Dave.

  • Re: CX100 replacement drives

    I've just refoamed a pair of CX100's and 50's at the weekend. The first I've done and it was much easier than I thought - messy getting the old foam and glue off but it has been well worth it. They play really clearly and sound great now. Go for it. Dave.

  • Re: Ideal speakers for Beolab/ Beomaster 5000

    I have a fully restored system from Frede - in the rare Oak finish and have to say it is superb in every way. I have the Beovox 5000 speakers with the 2500 cube speakers and certainly in the room I have it all set up in, it sounds amazing. I also use a Beogram CDX2 and Beogram 4000 through it. I'm also about to set up a Transcriptors Saturn record deck alongside (similar to as seen in Clockwork Orange). Any one who has heard it has been blown away with it and was shocked to find out it's

  • Re: CX 100 Refoaming Kit

    Take your pick. And there are many more via Google search ' speaker refoam and shims'. The first site also has links to instructional videos. As professional refoaming experts - they do not necessarily use shims. Have fun. Dave.

  • Re: BEOGRAM 1202

    eBay for parts like motors - but condition will be unknown. Member 'Dillen' or others may be able to help - put an add in the 'Wanted' section (Silver and Gold members only). Search for beogram motors on Beoworld as there has been descriptions of other's motor disassembly and rebuilding. Beolab 1700 ended production in 1977 so new parts - not a chance I'd guess so again, eBay or a Beoworld member with a duff unit but cosmetically good to act as a donor and swap it out. Otherwise

  • Re: Converting US Beogram 1700 to use in France?

    Hi Peter and welcome to Beoworld. The user manual states that the Beogram 1700 was supplied from the factory set up for use between 180 - 265 volts and was internally rewired for the US markets 110 volts. It should be a relatively straightforward job to rewire it back to factory settings. I'm sure other members such as Soren or Dillen can help with this one. There should be no need to use a step up/step down voltage convertor/invertor. Once rewired I think it should be OK with the speed setting
