  • Re: How to test a power transformer in Beogram 8000

    Hello Martin, Thank you for your reply and sorry for my late response. My computer decided to quit on me after my post, so I am using my iPad temporarily to email. I followed all of your directions which were excellent that came with your capacitor kit, including the ground wire but I will recheck everything. I checked the fuse with the continuity setting from my multimeter and it is good, as well as is the one on the board. While I have resurrected two other Beogram 8000 turntables, I am not very

  • How to test a power transformer in Beogram 8000

    Hello All, I am in the process of restoring a Beogram 8000 (USA model) and have done a capacitor replacement and reflowed the solder connections on the board to the power transformer and the other solder connections that are the usual likely suspects. The transformer is for T56 120V 60Hz 23 W. There is no indication of any power getting to the turntable unit. No lights or any movements when the buttons are pushed. The fuse is good and I have cleaned all the contacts on the key board. Can someone

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

    Just saw Jeff's post on Rush. What really make me crazy as much as I liked this film is the latitude with the facts that are taken by directors on movies like this based on true stories. I respect Ron Howard a lot as a director but I read that the two main characters in the film actually shared a room in London in their early days of their racing careers which does not at all match the rivalry that was worked into the film. For many people films will be the reality of the story. Too many films

  • Re: Stylus cleaning Beogram 4000

    I used to remove my cartridge and clean it for years, but I have read that some people have had the tone arm clips that attach the cartridge to the arm break off from removing the cartridge repeatedly so don't remove mine any longer? I use the method described by Sonavor. John

  • Re: Record cleaner Mexico

    Hello Søren, i agree that the cloths that came with the record cleaner get damp after just a few records and so I switched to a thicker micro-fiber cloth. The problem I found with the micro-fiber is that when I cleaned my stylus their was a lot of fuzz from the cloth that ended up on the records. Have you had this happen with your micro-fiber cloths? Not sure how easy a real cloth diaper is to find these days but I may try that. John

  • Re: Do your cats see your speakers as scratch posts? BL5 / BL9 / BL20

    I had a cat that was never allowed outdoors because of the traffic and other compelling reasons. This may sound drastic but to save the B & O speakers as well as the furniture I had the cats front claws removed. It did cause some angst on my part to deciide to do it, but the cat got over the operation quickly and seemed to not hold a grudge. John

  • Re: What's playing RIGHT NOW?

    Søren I know you are a big Rolling Stones fan but the Beatles were the band for me. i got a chance to go to this cross walk in St. John's Woods out side the Abbey road studion and it was funniy to watch people tryiing to take the walk and get their picture taken by friends but cars would be coming and stop because it is a cross walk and people would have to keep motioning the cars to move on so they would not be in the picture. If I recall they now have a flashing iight so motorist know

    John, I am very gratefull you are taking the time to photograph and detail how you are doing even the small things like removing glue and using your hook tool. For the experienced out there this may be familiar territory but to us with less experience this is both interesting and helpful. Thanks! John

  • Re: Beovox M70 Mexico

    I read your post about not being happy about how aesthically SOME of the details of the work you did was less than pleasing in the end. It is a familiar feeling which I myself and I am sure others have had when working on restoration projects. But we are are own worst critics. All you have to do is look at the pictures you showed of what you started with to see what an excellent project this was for you and how far you came. Someone else might have just put these pieces in the trash after seeing
