  • Re: Beovox S45-2 tune up?

    From what I've heard, it can make a big difference in the clarity of the treble! My S45-2 was upgraded before I bought them recently with Jensen caps (if I remember correctly) so I cannot really claim to have first hand experience of this. But I do know that they sound exquisitely detailed and balanced now! :-)

  • Re: BG tangential - Grease for the rails

    The small hook is fine. No loose parts. Regarding position, do you mean the "Positioning of PCB 1" in the service manual? What do these related switches actually do? When I slide the arm along the rail, it does not feel perfectly smooth but it is difficult to tell if it is the plastic gears and wires that creates a slightly uneven resistance when it moves sideways. Maybe I need to clean everything more thoroughly and see if it makes any difference. Not sure that I dare to actually remove

  • Re: Beogram 6500 Scraping Sound when half of the record has played

    Like Peter8300 suggested, it is probably the platter height that needs adjustment. The suspension height is adjusted via screws at the three copper colored thingies that the springs are attached. I just had this problem myself that when playing a rather heavy record, at the end of the record when the arm mechanism was close to its left endpoint, the weight of it all made the disc somehow touch the base resulting in a scraping noise. I noticed that if I just slightly pressed down on the left side

    Haha, I missed your post by a few minutes! :-) Glad you got the noise sorted!

    @Dillen, you wrote: "In decks where the carriage is close to vibrating when moving, you can use a little white lithium grease or silicone grease to dampen it, but in these cases the ideal repair would usually be to replace the carriage bushings." This is exactly what happens with my Beogram 4500. It vibrates and creates a noise every time it returns to the starting position. I have tried to clean the rods and applied some white grease but it does not completely remedy the problem unfortunately

    Regarding re-cap, is is often necessary on these Beograms? If so, are there any recommended brands and their values floating around the forums? Could be good to know for reference if any problems arise. Would you say that tweaking the RIAA made any noticeable difference? What kind of tweak by the way? :-)

    Thanks for giving your input on this! Good to know. It is difficult to know if it would be worthwhile to rebuild the old original MMC2 cartridge. I mean, it works and sounds OK as far as I can tell but who knows how much better it would sound with a fresh suspension and tip? Time will tell... :-)

  • Beocenter 9500 cassette next/previous song problem

    I have just serviced a type 1 cassette mechanism in a Beocenter 9500 by installing a new belt (from beoparts-shop.com) and removing and lubricating the tape transport pegs. All works fine, except for when using the next/previous song feature. When the playback resumes after finding a gap between songs, the tape transport stops after two seconds, causing the capstans to feed tape which is not being spooled up. When pressing stop, the excess tape is spooled up before the mechanism stops. I have not

    True! And the TDA1541A is getting rather expensive on the second hand market...
