  • Beolab 5 problem

    Hello! I'm hoping somebody might be able to help me diagnose and remedy a fault with one of my Lab 5s. Since Saturday night, the left-hand speaker has been produced an annoying high-pitched whistle (almost like a bicycle that needs oiling) whenever it's switched on. The sound is coming from the calibration microphone in the base rather than the speaker itself. Attempts to recalibrate have produced a series of awful grinding noises rather than the usual sounds, and the sequence never completes

    Yes, the microphone extends normally when I attempt to recalibrate, so it is not a mechanical issue. Could it be some kind of software fault? Also, is it possible to switch off the microphone in some way? That would resolve the problem instantly, as the speaker is playing perfectly normally.

  • Another Beolab 5 problem

    Thanks for everyone's assistance with my problem with my left speaker. Oddly, this resolved itself a couple of days later. However, I'm now having a problem with the right one. When I'm listening to music, the sound will suddenly cut out on the right speaker, meaning I'm listening to one stereo channel only. With a CD, the sound loss remains until I stop the disc and restart it, whereas with vinyl the sound loss is only momentary and resolves itself within a couple of seconds. In

  • Pink stripe on BV4-65

    My BeoVision 4 65" has developed an odd fault — a pink stripe about 4" wide and 14" long has appeared on the screen, presumably due to a section of stuck pixels. Is there any easy resolution for this, or is the screen on the way out? If so, is it normal for this to happen after less than five years' use?

  • Re: Seventies or eighties vinyl system?

    Thanks Peter! I understand that the Beomaster 3400 will decode SQ records too — that's what the "matrix" button is for. In fact, my dealer and I tried the turntable and amplifier out with four passive speakers and got quad sound from an SQ album. The challenge now is how we could get the same through my active speakers (Lab 5s front and Lab 3s rear). Is there a way?

    Quick question: would any of the Soundsmith cartridges play CD4 records? I'm sure they used to have one that would, but I can't see any mention of it on their page. And would it be possible to connect the Beogram 6000 via the Beomaster 3400 into my Beosystem 3 as I currently do with my Beogram 5500 and Beomaster 5500?

    Yes, I only have a handful of quadraphonic records, but it would be nice to hear them in quad. No idea what stylus the 6000 came with; I agree that it would need a new one from Soundsmith if I were going to use it. My Beogram 5500 currently has an MMC2.

  • Seventies or eighties vinyl system?

    I will be moving house shortly and am considering which of my two turntables and amplifiers to use in my new home. Whichever I use will be feeding into a Beosystem 3 and out to Lab 5s. I could use my present turntable, the Beogram 5500, and my Beomaster 5500 or substitute older seventies components I have: a Beogram 6000 and Beomaster 3400. I will almost certainly audition both in the new home and make a decision, but does anyone hear have any views as to which will sound better? Also, does anyone

  • BeoSound 9000 or BeoGram CD 5500?

    I will shortly be moving house, and reconfiguring my hifi system. I currently use a BeoSound 9000 as my CD player, with a direct digital feed into my BeoLab 5s. However, years ago I had a BeoGram CD 5500 (which, if I'm correct, is the only other B&O CD player with a digital output) and recall it being an outstanding machine. Has anybody compared these two models for sound quality? Would I do better to acquire a BeoGram CD 5500 and use it as my CD player instead?
