  • Re: Renovating a set of amplifiers and filters from 2 Penta's

    I have great success with my Huntron's and then an ESR if I suspect something. I look for a tilted oval indicating a restance problem. Then pull and check if needed. Saves the time of pulling and getting a good ESR reading, though this can be done in circuit. It might not give me an exact value but I can check a ton of caps quickly. Plus I have gotten pretty good at telling a rough value by the freq/voltage I am using and the size/shape of the oval. Rick

    I found some RL60.2 on Ebay for $175usd. Looks like I can use 4 speakers with the 5000 so I might look for another set of RL60.2 as well.

    Also ... It looks like the 5000 supports 4 speakers. Any problem with 4 8 ohm speakers on this unit?

  • BeoMaster Speakers

    I have a newly aquired Beomaster 5000 setup and am looking for B&O speakers to go with it. I currently am running with a great pair of Sansui speakers but would like a complete B&O setup. Any input on what to look for in B&O speakers? I see lots for sale but want to make sure they work on the 5000 before trying to buy them. Rick

  • Re: New TV - LED or Plasma - any recommendations ?

    Look at the Panasonic TC-P65 plasma. Thin 65" with a very beautiful picture. Looks like an LCD or even a thick LED size TV. I think it is just over an inch thick. Plasma tv's weigh more and consume more but what a picture this one has. Rick

    Thanks. Since I am think of doing a full cap replacement on all of my B&O 5000 stuff I might just do it and the controls at one time. I have been in electronics over 30 years and know that caps are the number one problem. I'll be starting this in couple of hours. Darn customer want me to fix their stuff first!!!

    Great. Just now looking at the manual and going to try the adjustement of R126 and R226. If they are bad I'll order some up. Hoping I can clean and adjust them though. Rick

  • Re: Beomaster 5000 goes off.

    Thanks for the responce. I can get and install a cap kit from Dillen. Waiting on one for my 8002 I just fixed. Is the fan not spinning ever a problem that can be cause by this? This the the 80's version of the 5000 also. I have the service manual and will review all spec settings. Rick

  • Beomaster 5000 goes off.

    I have a Beomaster 5000 that will now only play about 20 minutes then mutea off. HIt the phono select button and it comes right back on but for less time each time I do this. I think it is temp related and when I open it up to observe the fan I never see it spin. Any known area to look at? I can bring it right back up with the MCP also but have the same shutdown problem.
