  • Re: Beomaster 4400 Value

    My experience is quite different from Soren; however it is altogether possible that physical condition may be a contributing factor in my situation in that I can easily tell the difference with my eyes closed between the McIntosh 2250 [cold], 4500 [warm and full bodied], and the 2400 [dull/unremarkable]. Oddly enough the BeoCenter 9000 would be a more difficult call in that it seems to me to sound like a compromise between the 2400 and the 4500, leaning towards the 4500. As to which component is

    Hi Peter, It is impossible to say accurately if I have an exaggerated view of the Beomaster 4400. I admit I am going primarily on your glowing recommendation based on extensive experience. As mentioned previously, my favorite amplifier is the Beomaster 4500. The sound is absolutely exquisite no matter what speakers I have attached to it. The major drawback with this amp is the power or lack thereof. I have made many references to my McIntosh 2250 with its commanding 500 watts of continuous power

    Thank you Graham for the opportunity to become a customer of yours. I am more than delighted that you sold your 4400. I have offered my shop owner US$600 which seems like a lot, I know, but this man is a perfectionist and he will go over his 4400 with a fine tooth comb. He restored my Beocord 8004 and just went on and on replacing parts that did not meet his standards. The process took quite awhile, but I had no interest in rushing him. The end result was a Beocord that performs as new. I have zero

    The seller says his amplifier is worth US$750 but will sell his 4400 to me, a known customer for US$600. [I purchased my Beogram 8002 from him and he refurbished my Beocord 8004 to a very high standard.] I feel this is a rather high price, but the 4400 is to be completely tested before shipping and all faults remedied. I know this gentleman fairly well and he is a perfectionist and his work is superb. All considered, does this seem like a good deal to you guys? Jeff

    My “local” guy isn’t quite that as I live on Vancouver Island in Canada while my craftsman is in St. Louis, MO. USA. I know this fellow rather well and he is a perfectionist. This is the shop that rebuilt my Beocord 8004 and from which I purchased a very nice Beogram 8002. I emailed him vis-à-vis the quoted prices and let him know that I fully expected to pay more than that. So far silence which is not unexpected. After he thinks things over he’ll let me know what he

    I find what happened to Chris appalling. Most people interested in B&O products tend to be incredibly nice and often most generous. I for one was the recipient of a host of badly needed parts for my Beogram 4000 sent entirely gratis…. a kindness I will NEVER forget! Jeff

    I asked the owner of a B&O restoration shop if he had a 4400 for sale as I am familiar with his work, which is excellent, and he said yes, but didn’t know how much to ask for it. As such I opened this forum asking what would be a “fair” price to pay for a 4400. I then took all the responses and sent them to the owner who responded, “Ha ha ha ha ha.” My assumption is he will want a very high price so I will just be patient as sooner of later Peter, Martin, or Frede

  • Beomaster 4400 Value

    I have been giving considerable thought to purchasing a Beomaster 4400 for some time, and most recently Peter’s glowing recommendation pushed me to the tipping point. I found what I believe to be a genuinely nice one, professionally reconditioned by a long-time B&O dealer who is insisting that he has no idea what to ask for his 4400. Any ideas what a fair price would be for a reconditioned 4400 in excellent cosmetic condition? Jeff

  • Re: S-45 issues

    Peter, I quite agree. I have been thinking about acquiring a Beomaster 4400 for some time debating if what I really needed was the Beomaster 8000. I much prefer the appearance of the Beomaster 4400 to the rather added-on and bulky look of the Beomaster 8000. Still what really matters is sound quality….. as with my much admired Beomaster 4500. If power alone was my interest, I am already in good hands with my McIntosh 2250 and its powerful 500 watts continuous power. So the question that begs

  • Re: S-45 issues

    Hi Peter, Yes you are quite right, American homes are for the most part on a much larger scale than those in Europe. I have no doubt that your recommendation of M100’s would fit my taste well. My favourite amp is the Beomaster 4500 with its delicious mellow sound quality. I don’t know how it would fare paired with the M100’s as it struggles if pressed to its limits with the S120.2’s. I suppose if I were serious about this I would be looking for a Beomaster 8000 from Bill Rapp
