  • Re: Beogram 8002 background noise

    the cart should be OK, it has only 10 hours on it, I bought it from Soundsmith, it's an SMMC2 in the wooden box, it looks normal, no bobbing up and down, just to make sure it was not the cart I swapped it over for my hardly ever used MMC1 (for special occasions) , and it is the same background noise, like the wipers are on in your car

    I played a record with the volume knob really low, and I am pretty sure it is the platter slightly coming into contact with the sub platter rotor, I am going to take it all off and put it all back again tomorrow, it seems I was not diligent enough with this in the very beginning :-)

    its spinning very freely now after I added a little 0.4mm circular shim as per Beolovers blog post, even though I could not hear that my sub platter was scraping, using the shim has allowed me to spin the platter very freely - there is no drag now and it carries on spinning for a long time sadly the noise is still there in the background, a sort of clunk every second, I will try and record it and put on youtube

    so this is a quick recording between two tracks, it sounds a bit like your window wipers in the car, hard to describe having a hard time trying to pinpoint where it is coming from, it could still be something not right with the platter 7 second You Tube Clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxh-tJ5opHE&feature=youtu.be

    yes Dillen, but it must be scraping on two high spots, as the noise can be heard every second, so on a 33 rpm record, there must be two high spots I would think :-) the more I listen the more I think this is it !

    Hi John, yes it turns around without any issues, but does not spin as fast as I used to remember, is that a concern do you think, can anything be done to make it spin a little more freely ?

    I have found out that t he Beogram 8002 doesn't use a conventional motor with bearings and a shaft. It has a tangential drive system. The base platter as shown in the first picture is actually the rotor in the system. The transformer looking thing that the rotor circulates around is the stator, so the motor doesn't have any moving parts, clever :-) NB the base platter (rotor) can be removed as shown in the second photo, you see the circular compartment for the main bearing, to remove it you

  • Beogram 8002 background noise

    just had my 8002 serviced and set it up with my excellent Graham Slee phono pre, listening away to some of my favourite LP's yesterday night and in between tracks I can hear what sounds like a window wiper noise that you would get in your car, I then got my AKG headphones out, and I can hear it even clearer with the headphones, and even during the track, so it is there all the time throughout playing the record, its the same with every record I play, maybe scraping the platter or bearings could

    yes, it is fully free, and subplatter spinning fine, the repeatable nature of the noise does point to platter rotation, let me look at that first

  • Re: Is it possible to use the DVI input on Beovision 7-32 Mk2 (9321) ?

    is it possible to somehow find a way to trick the Beo 4 remote, so that when you press TV it automatically selects the DVI connection, rather than pressing List and scrolling down to find PC option ?? any clever ways to re-program the Beo 4 at all ??
