  • Re: Beogram 8000 Aluminum Deck And Door Panel Reattachment

    Thanks everyone, This is why this site is so great, ask a question about something rather trivial and you get such great responses. I especially thank you Leslie for your kind offer to send the tape, but I live in Boise, Idaho which would cost you a fortune to ship it to me here in the states. Actually I should be able to get the 3M tape here. I think I am leaning towards the epoxy and glue solutions however. Thanks all, John

  • Beogram 8000 Aluminum Deck And Door Panel Reattachment

    Hello, I am sure ths is not a new question as to what to use to replace the adhesive tape for the aluminum deck and panel that covers the tone arm on the BG 8000 when it comes loose. I did a search on the old forum but maybe did not use the correct key words and came up with nothing. I seem t recall a mention of 3M doubled sided foam tape. Any thoughts would be appreciated. John

  • Beomaster 1900 Karma

    Hello, In 1977 I purchased a Beomaster 1900, Beogram 1900 and Beovox S75 speakers. I was single at the time and my only other possessions were a mattress without a frame and some book cases. But the B&O equipment was so beautiful I didn't much care about what I didn't have. About 2 years later I had more possessions in the way of furniture but the B&O equipment was still what I prized most, and this was when my house was burglarized. They took my Beomaster receiver along with some

    Hello Soren, I know you were asking Rich about where he gets his sleeves, but two sources north of you are Sleevetown.com and Bagsunlimited.com. Sleevetown I just ordered LP outer sleeves from and while postage was more than Bagsunlimited had much lower prices and a nice product. Sleevetown has sever different kinds of both inner and outer sleeves for 7 inch. I am a lurker on the forum because I don't know much technically but love B&O and the comments on the forum are interesting and enlightening

  • Re: What are you WATCHING "right now' ?

    I watch a lot of Japaanese films and sometimes find some other gems from Asia. Recently a Chinese film was recommended to mee by a Japanese friend. It is called In the Mood for Love by director Kar Wai Wong. I had already seen his film 2046, a great film. Both have beautiful cinematography and the films are set in the 60s with gorgeous costuming reminescent of American made films of the 40s and 50s. The main actor has a slight resemblance to the American actor Clark Gable. In the Mood for Love is

  • New, Old Stock B & O Cartridges

    I saw a Beogram turntable up for auction on eBay with a B&O MMC-10E black cartridge which was new to me. So I did a Google search and came up,with the following website that had the cartridge for sale as well as what appears to be new, old stock cartridges. The descriptions say brand new and unused. The MMC-20ClL is $799.95 and a MMC-20EN is $689.95. Way too expensive for me but if someone wants an original cartridge in new condition it might be worth it. I am wondering if the cantilevers on

    DoubleU is correct about the Swedish version of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" being superior. It often is the case here in the U.S.A. that a foreign film gets remade and does not live up to the original. Sometimes it is because certain individuals here don't want to "read a movie" that is subtitled. What a shame because the original is often superior despite casting a known celebrity actor in the remake. Two movies come to mind, the Japanese movie "Shall We Dance"

  • Re: Beomaster failure rate

    I have a BMW 1900 that I have been waiting to take on as a winter project and have the cap kit from Dillen. Regarding the trimmers I had not considered replacing them. Is it a good idea to do that with everything else and do I need equipment and know how to calibrate those if I did replace them. This question is related to the discussions here I think. John

    I was talking with a barista at the local coffee shop I frequent aboutt the Beomaster 1900 I just bought. It is incredible when you describe it to someone so much younger and is unfamiliar with this B&O equipment and how ahead of its time the touch sensitive controls were. How much I took for granted at the time because there was nothing like it to compare it to, now I am writing this post on an iPad which has the same touch sensitive capability. Who would have known.
