  • Better App than iTunes

    (I posted an identical question 2-3 years ago, I thought I'd see if we're anywhere better today) So the current lineup is wireless speakers and if you don't want to have yet *another* monthly subscription, that means you have £10k of speakers streaming from your computer or ipad (correct me if I'm wrong) Or like my basement where I have a turntable plugged into my A9. For me right now upgrading to the non-vintage world would be my Mac or having a 128Gb iPad filled with albums

  • Re: BeoVision 10 not turning on

    Wow. So today I went to unplug the cables, take it downstairs and have a look inside. Randomly I thought, "let's plug it in again and see if turning it off and on works" It worked! Turning things off and on at the mains sometimes works! I have no idea what was up or if anything is even wrong with it but the kids are now watching a film which means I can work on a different project instead (fixing up an old Apple computer I found). I couldn't find a service manual for i so I'm

  • BeoVision 10 not turning on

    Went to turn the TV on this morning but nothing is happening. Tried, swapping the HDMI cable to my Laptop and still nothing. The green light comes on but there's no picture or sound and then it goes off after a little bit. I know that these TVs are getting old now but this is horribly disappointing and I was wondering if this is a common/fixable fault that's emerging as they age? I just finished swapping out capacitors in my old BV32 so I'm ok with repair projects and electronics but

  • Re: Beolit 20 launched!

    This is very much a "where do you live" question. If you're in Europe and especially if you're in a city then DAB is a thing but I have friends who barely get mobile phone reception and my parents live about 10 miles from any DAB reception. I'm not even talking about especially remote areas, just the regular countryside.

  • Re: Beolit 20 launched!

    I just don't get why they can't put a radio in there too, an AMFM circuit must cost like 2 Euros or something. I remember when the first version of came out first back in 2012 [?] and I would have gotten one if I had the ability to listen to the radio, without having to stream an app from my phone (which would kill the battery in about an hour or two). I love listening to sports and talk radio when I'm working outdoors and right now my only option is the BeoSound 3 (the original tall

  • Overture: Replacement deck or suggestions on what to do with it?

    I posted a few months ago about how my Overtures tape deck spends about 5-7 seconds making clicking sounds when it starts up (due to a broken clutch cog) Anyway, I've searched once per week to see if any spare parts would show up on eBay (no results) and I was wondering what my options are: 1) Can you get these parts 3D printed? Like if I took the one with missing teeth to someone could I pay $100 to get it scanned, adjusted and printed? 2) Are there compatible mechanisms? This was the B&O

  • Re: How to wall mount heavier tvs

    Answers as I found 1) The bracket actually has multiple holes designed to fit presumably everywhere 2) The larger tv brackets have 4 points so it is itself the bracing between 2 studs. For my BV7 which has a single line of vertical holes, I drilled a bracing piece of wood onto the wall because the wallmount rotates and applies tortion. Luckily I still had some of the paint for that wall in a jar in the toolshed. 3) The spec on bolts is high enough that it's not a concern.

  • Re: New Century Tape Idler Cog? (3D printed vs actual part vs new tape mech?)

    I came across an eBay seller who is selling some of the (more lucrative) bits to a century that was physically damaged. He thinks he probably has the tape deck in the pile of bits he didn't think were worth much. After research, it seems that this was a Phillips deck that B&O bought in. I need to check on whether a Phillips community exists with the spares/parts to replace the cog as it surely must go a lot. It's a fairly simply 'plastic cog on an axle on a swivel' setup so if

  • Re: New Century Tape Idler Cog? (3D printed vs actual part vs new tape mech?)

    I actually got down to seeing it by taking the piece of that covers it (the bit that goes up/down on play) off. It's just a snap fit that holds it so not too bad. And to get that cog out is pretty easy at this point really, if someone had a stock. I agree about it being cheap though. I had a BeoSystem 5500 a few years ago which was 20 years older but had a far superior tape deck. I guess I'd rather live without than go through the hassle of cannibalising parts, especially as I'm in the

  • New Century Tape Idler Cog? (3D printed vs actual part vs new tape mech?)

    I posted a week or so ago about how my Century tape mech worked when I removed a snapped tape. Anyway, I noticed that it was skipping a bit today when I went once again to use it. After a few seconds the pickup spool started jumping. Anyway, I opened it up a bit more and the orange clutch/idler wheel that goes between the two reels is missing a cog 1) Does anyone here sell or make them? I'm not sure whether this is the sort of stuff that 3D printing is strong enough to make these days? 2) If
