  • Re: Beosound Century laser mechanism.

    You must have got a dodgy one!! It's a reasonable Phillips mechanism. I used to crank mine and never had a problem with skipping, even if it was a bass heavy or funk track!!

    Thanks guys. It has an chrome clamper, but these were limited edition before they became standard. I know the unit is definitely not a boom box, but plays acoustic / jazz and vocals very nicely, even at higher volumes, much clearer and detailed than a boom box. I am just concerned that if it is the older mechanism I won't be able to get it fixed if it does the dirty. I have a 9500 with a laser that moves in an arc. The mechanism went, and the local B&O repairer could not fix it. I had to

  • Beosound Century laser mechanism.

    Hello guys. Hope you are all well. Somebody offered me a century with serial number starting with 1231xxxxx (assuming 1997?).

I think the speakers sound terribly flat with all settings on neutral, compared to a conventional amp and quality bookshelf speakers on neutral settings.

  • Re: Beocenter 9300

    Buy it! I think they are nicer to use than the upright models. Just make sure it is UNMARKED and works like new!! Enjoy! Nice piece for the sideboard! Still have mine, and an upright with 2500's. Couldn't sell either! I like the 9500/9300 better than the BS9000. I had a white BS9000 and matching beolab 3's, which looked very sexy, but give me the retro stuff any day I say. The BS9000 was awkward to use on a table stand. The 9300 is beautiful to use (and rarer - everyone has seen or got
