  • Re: Beomaster 1600 (1980) Type 1703 Repair

    Hi Jaime, Actually, I haven't touched by BM 1600 in over a year. Picked up a twin unit about year ago but never delved into switching the parts over to the better one. Now that winter is upon us and the weather for working on the BMWs is passing I should jump back into this. I will let you know what i find!. Wade

  • Re: Beosystem 7000 Question

    Awesome! So now I have a few more questions... what is the difference between the AV 7000 and the BM 7000? Would one be more suited to hooking up to my iMac and Beovox speakers than the other? Also, it looks like the AV 7000 has different speaker plugs...do the Beovox speakers plug into the AV's Powerlink speaker plugs but with fewer pins? Thanks again, this is super informative! Wade

    Thanks MediaBob, I found a few pages with info on the AV 7000 and it looks like I'd need an amp hooked up between the AV 7000 and the Beovox speakers which sort of defeats the purpose for me. Currently I am running a BM 2400 with CX 50s and S45s in my living room and this would go in my office/bedroom. Both my other BM 2400 and my BM 1600 need repair but I think I'd like to get into an newer BM, but I have to keep it in a reasonable price range. I think the BM 5000 or 5500 would be good options

  • Beosystem 7000 Question

    After spending months buried in my school work, I finally have time to finish putting together the audio systems in my apartment. I have been sitting on a Beomaster 1600 (1980) for many months that has an off button issue (doesn't work) but I am not looking forward to paying to have it cleaned and repaired. In my endless eBay searching I've run across both a Beomaster 7000 and a Beosystem 7000. My question is, which would be better suited since I will have it hooked up to my iMac? Also, and

    Thanks, Leslie! http://www.ebay.com/itm/161168924855?_trksid=p2055120.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT http://www.ebay.com/itm/190994446173?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT These were the two I was looking at. I thought the Beosystem was the whole system but the one was listed as a Beomaster and the other was listed as a Beosystem. Thank you for clarifying about the speaker connections, I was lost with what was and wasn't possible.

    Martin, There is definitely space between the undersides of the aluminum buttons and the square switch heads. I would guess (without taking it apart again) that the space is about 50-75mm. The problem appears to be that when the 'Off' button is pushed it does not disengage the current function and the 'Off' switch inside does not stay pushed. Having not seen it in proper working order, I do not know if the 'Off' switch is supposed to just disengage the current function and

    Well, I received the unit and attempted the spring fix. After loosing the spring for a brief period of time (talk about nerve-racking!) I was able to try the fix Martin suggested. The problem has persisted though.... Here's what seems to be going on: I plug in the unit and it automatically comes on. When I press the off button the switch inside doesn't seem to stick. The switch opens back up as soon as I removed my finger from the off button and it resumes whatever it was on before (phono

  • Re: Incorporating beautiful design in the era of digital music

    WIthout telling the fine individuals in Struer how to do their jobs, I think the Beosound 5 was the complete wrong direction. Five years ago it would have been advanced but the user experience is clunky and is not a particularly compatible with Apple in terms of understanding (basically, you have to relearn something to complete the same functions). I actually think that the BeoPlay A9 is much more in the direction that B&O should be heading. Their older receivers had a simple user interface

    MM, Great points! I guess what I was getting at is that I'd like to see something more innovative using Airplay/Airfoil. As for the line-in on the Beosound 5.... for that amount of money I would hope to see something nicer than what I can create with a system made up of 20+ year old B&O equipment (not talking sound quality but rather functionality).

  • Re: Beovox S45.2 vs. Beovox S-45

    I started out with a set of type 6302 S-45's (the earliest style) and recently picked up a set of type 6427 (the later early 1980s style with the split front). The type 6302 and 6312 have three components and the 6427s only have two. I have found that the 6302s are a bit more neutral and some might find them a little less distinct. The 6427s are easy to refoam and definitely worth it in my opinion. They have a 'sharper' sound to them and, of course, look awesome on the optional stands
