  • Penta display problem.

    I've just got hold of a really nice pair of Penta 2's, unfortunately only one display is working. I've swapped the displays over so I know the problem is not in the actual display. The connection on the bottom of the speaker seems fine. Has anyone else had an issue where the display was not actually faulty?

    Ah, thats not what I have. Looking at what I have I'm now doubting its anything to do with the radio. Sorry for getting your hopes up.

    What does the wall mount look like? I might have one. I got a couple of 500's a while back and they came with some bits and bobs which I still have laying about.

  • Really?!

    My best offer would be about £200 and that's being generous. What a joke! LINK

  • Re: Beograms vs other decks.

    I would be interested to know if anyone on here has the ability to do a back to back test on a Beogram and another halfway decent turntable using the same MMC cartridge with an adaptor, just to give us a comparison.

  • Re: Beograms vs other decks.

    This could be opening a can of worms but are Beograms a bit "form over function". Personally I think that all the post 4000 series tangentials are very plasticy and not particularly well built. Even my Dual is a lot more substantial than any Beogram from the 80's onwards. Just look at the platter on some of those decks, its just a thin bit of pressed metal. They 100% are more more beatiful than most decks and far easier to use with a lot of them being remote controllabe but are they

    I don't have many Beograms to compare it with but have in the past had most types (60's 3000's excepted) and none have sounded as nice. There is the possibility that it's the cartridges on the Beograms. Do B&o cartridges age worse than those from other manufactures? As said the Shure is from approx 1975 and has its original stylus so is a similar age or older than most MMC*** type cartridges. The Dual deck itself isn't exactly wonderful looking and does have the usual speed

  • Beograms vs other decks.

    I've never been a huge vinyl fan, infact most of my turntables have either been sold on or only kept as they complete the system but this is starting to change as I have now started buying some records. The problem is I have had for years an old Dual 601 record deck which sounds better than any Beogram I have. The Dual has a Shure V15 mk3 with its original stylus which does seem to be quite well regarded and its same age as my BG6000 but it sounds much nicer. I've tried different cartridges

  • Penta crossover Capacitors

    I'm thinking of doing a bit of capacitor replacing on some speakers and then thought about my Beovox Pentas. I haven't seen much info about people replacing the caps in Penta's. Has anyone done it and how tricky is it.

  • Re: Time to get things set up!

    I certainly will say how it sounds. I doubt I will be able to set up the 4 speakers in the perfect positions. I might just have to stand the rears up on something as I don't have a room that I can set up 4 P50's permanently.
