  • Beolab / Beomaster 5000 speaker question...

    Hello all, I've just acquired a lovely Beolab (1967)/Beomaster (1969) 5000 and have a question about the speakers I can use with it. I was going to connect it to a pair of CX 100s and a pair of CX 50s (replacing the Beomaster 1000 I'm currently using) but when I did this I could barely hear anything even with the volume up to 10! I connected a pair of 2702s and everything works perfectly. I've looked online and read about damage that can be caused to an amplifier if you use the incorrect

    Thanks for all the suggestions! @ Beobuddy - when I connected the 2702s everything worked well, including a line input (on AUX) from my iPhone - it was the impedance difference of the speakers that I was suspecting but the fact that other members are successfully using the CX 100s stumped me. Ideally I'd like to use my CX speakers as they're 'plumbed in' to the room @ j0hnbarker - looked at these when I first got the amp but didn't adjust, tried a Beogram 1202 and iPhone via AUX

    Just found and read the Beolab 5000 user guide and it states the amplifier can be used with speakers with impedance of 4 - 16 ohm, but with the corresponding drop in volume. This reassures me that I'm not going to destroy the amp or speakers but still odd that I can't hear virtually anything! I will have a play around this weekend and see what I can come up with.

    Problem solved! After a concerted process of elimination (i.e a bit of a fiddle about!) it looks like the issue was a mix of input levels and ignorance The AUX input doesn't seem to work with an iPhone/Airport Express feed even with the levels adjusted by the dials underneath, however, works fine with the TAPE input. I've also switched the PHONO input switch and the volume is much improved, I think this may have been because the previous owner was using a non-B&O turntable. I also soldered

  • Removing marks from a Beosystem 10 wall bracket...

    Hello all, I've obtained a WB10 wall bracket for my Beosystem 10 from eBay, however, when it arrived, despite being perfectly packaged, I noticed that it had small flecks on the surface which detract from the appearance. I've tried using water with a mild detergent with no effect and also isopropyl alcohol, again with no effect. I assume that there has been some corrosion to the surface finish/coating? Naturally I'm disappointed and wondered if anyone has had a similar issue which they've

  • Correct cable to use for making up 5 pin DIN interconnects...

    Hello all, I'm restoring an old Beogram 1200 which has had the DIN cable hacked off for a couple of phonos Having bought a new DIN connector I just need to get the cable but I'm not sure what I need to get! Am I right in thinking its shielded cat 5 cable? Any suggestions and /or links would be great! Cheers

    Thanks for the replies - seems like the easiest option is to keep the original cable but solder on a new DIN connector. However, if I need to increase the length of this phono specific cable (i.e. the original cable has been cut short) can anyone point me in the right direction to buy some?

    Update - read on an archived post that the AUX input on the Beolab 5000 has certain pins wired differently to the TAPE input which was the reason I wasn't getting a signal from my iPhone! At least I know it's not faulty! @ chartz - got my new feet but have used small bolts on the tuner to replace the rivets, needs a bit of fettling though!

  • Re: Beovox 1500 refoam question...

    Thanks for the replies - I've got my eye on a pair but before going for them I wanted to know if there are any problematic issues! They seem to be a fairly rare speaker (from what I've read) and I can't find a lot of info about them. @ Søren Mexico - thanks, it was the fact that the woofer was oval that was worrying me. I've refoamed a few pairs of speakers but all were round surrounds. @ Dillen - I'm a bit naïve on the oval woofers are they constructed in a different

    Update - looks like the the original cable was removed completely and a neat job done of replacing it with a dual shielded cable - this means I'm going to need to replace the entire cable to get it back to factory spec. @ Dillen - I can easily source dual shielded cable but as you say I need a protective ground as well, can you suggest where I can get this type of cable from? (BTW the BM1200 lamps arrived safely!)
