  • Re: Beomaster 5500 with non B&O turntable

    Yes it does. And yes, it sounds better than the 5500!

    Tim Jarman is the man you need - he's in Farnborough, Hampshire. I'll send you a message with his contact details.

    Graeme, Just in case you see this, the message I sent you bounced back as undeliverable to your email address. I'd rather not list Tim's phone number on an open forum, but you can contact him through his website here: https://beocentral.com/contact

  • Re: BS1 (2017) software update

    Funny, I've found the sound of the BS1 to improve markedly with some of the recent updates. It was always 'impressive' but I always found the midrange to sound rather processed. Over the last year or so, its midrange seems to sound more natural and it seems to be closer to the classic B&O 'house sound'. To be fair, though, the treble has never been the best, but I put this down to the natural limitations of a full-range drive unit rather than a dedicated tweeter.

    [quote user="Ufc69"] There are I believe only 4 units coming to England and only 1 coming to B&O Winchester. He indicated I’d get mine in March which tallies in with what Winchester also says. [/quote] Ooo - is yours coming to B&O Winchester? They’re my local dealer. May I come and see it in the shop when it arrives with them - I promise not to touch (or drool on it...)?

  • Re: Call Out To Beomaster 8000 Owners

    My Beomaster 8000 started randomly switching itself on (always to FM P3) a few years back when it was in regular use in the dining room. A certain Mr. Jarman told me to check two things - firstly make sure that it wasn't sitting in direct sunlight as this can sometimes activate the remote sensor. It was at the back of the room and well shaded, so this was not the issue. His second suggestion was to change the battery in the remote handset as he said that, as these run down, they can cause the

  • Re: Beosound 1 Gen 1 still relevant?

    Our Beosound 1 is a Gen.1 and lives in the kitchen. As I still think it's one of the best looking wireless speakers B&O have made and I prefer to talk to people rather than inanimate objects, I have no intention of replacing it!

  • Re: Beogram 5000 - no play

    It's probably an issue with the switch behind the front panel - it's a small, flexible metal membrane switch on a small PCB and these can give issues. I had one once where the normally dome-shaped actuator had slipped from its location and so made random, intermittent contact which meant that the deck would start happily but would randomly switch itself off when it felt like it (and then sometimes even switch straight back on again!).

    Ah, you didn’t mention that! In that case, yes, it’s likely something else.

  • Re: Beosound Level - new soundbar?

    As always, I shall wait until I see one in the flesh to give a definitive opinion, but one of the press photos that was sent to me shows the light wood grille at such a angle that the shadow of the speaker cutout underneath can be seen. Unfortunately his makes it look like one of those old radios wit a beige coloured grille, where the cloth has got so dirty, you can see the shape of the speakers marked out in dust and grime!
