  • Re: CD Not Playing on Beosound 9000

    [quote user="joeyboygolf"] I find that BeoWorld is one of the most helpful and friendly places on the Internet to visit, on many occasions overly friendly. [/quote] Really joeyboygolf? Well as someone who's life experiences have equipped him to comment on such things as unnecessarily abrasive treatment with a good deal of authority, I can pretty much sum that up by saying that no matter how many good deeds one does, all it takes is one bad deed to negate them and make it all for not

    [quote user="joeyboygolf"] One more time........it can't be done on the cheap. Your only option is to buy a kit specific to your 9000's serial number direct from B&O service. If you don't want to pay you should not have bought a BS9000 as they have had this problem since day one. Sorry to be so blunt. [/quote] Completely untrue and completely unnecessary as a reply to a legitimate inquiry! I feel for the newcomers to this forum. BeoWorld is one of the most consistantly unfriendly

    Hi: I have successfully repaired my BeoSound 9000 Mk II with an eBay sourced CDM12.4 laser at about $15.00 USD. I never wrote a complete DIY about it but some of the detail was presented in my BeoSound 9000 MK III / VAM1250 focused blog post: http://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/6067.aspx I'm a bit short on time at the present but can tell you that if you have a failed BS Mk II, you must purchase your eBay sourced CDM12.4 from the right seller. I believe that the one that worked for me was purchased

  • Re: Cleaning aluminium surfaces

    I've had great sucess with this partiular "brushed" aluminum surface using the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser . It is also known as melamine foam . I used it on my BeoSystem 5500 top panels, rubbing agressively with the grain. It has no abrasives but did a fantastic job of removing years of dirt and marks. Also works great on the BeoGram record decks with the brushed aluminum platter surrounds. I have not tried it on the platters though. Michael

  • Re: Penta 3 opinions?

    Thank you for the photos! They look great! As far polish, I used 3M Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish on my Penta 1's. (I got them cleaned, I've just never gotten them running lol). It works great in that it cleaned years of grunge (especially on the top plate) and is completely non-abrasive. And it's made by 3M Brand who, in my opinion, makes the best of whatever they produce. Also, I always use high quality microfiber cloths when cleaning any of my B&O items. Especially good when

  • Re: Penta 3 opinions?

    I just purchased some B&O items from a woman who was also selling a pair of Penta III's. On my limited budget, I decided to purchase her BeoLab 8000's and did not take the Penta's. I did, however, remove the frets (the only way... by pulling out sideways on the cloth) and saw my very first set of Pentas with beautifully intact foam surrounds. I touched them gently and they seemed firm but I hesitated to press too hard for fear of puncture. I graded the drivers for her as in great

  • Re: Penta 3 opinions?

    Interesting on the different midrange drivers of the Penta III's..... The one's that I just looked at were gray colored for sure. She was asking $1,200.00 US for those so I opted for the BL 8000's at $900.00. However, hearing people's high praise on here for the Penta III's over the BeoLab 8000's makes me wonder that I may have chosen the wrong speakers to take home. My primary speakers up until this recent purchase of the 8000's are the BeoLab 3's. I've been running

    Thank you Beobuddy! Great to hear that we may soon have available a proper fitting foam surround for the Penta midrange drivers! I'll be first in line to purchase a set when you bring this project to fruition. Michael
