  • Re: Beogram 7000 Troubleshooting

    Sorry for this old thread. After over two years, my Beogram 7000 now working. I shelved the project and had my Beosystem 7000 in storage. A job change, and a move later, I set up my 7000 and decided to get the Beogram working. The problem with the sound quality was the suspension in my MMC 2 cartridge had failed. Sound-Smith rebuilt it for a reasonable price. The needle tip was in good condition. I was able to fix the other problem with the sub platter scraping the chassis, by carefully disassembling

  • Beogram 7000 Troubleshooting

    After almost five years of waiting and wanting, I finally treated myself to a Christmas present and bought a matching Beogram 7000 in black to go with the rest of my 7000 System. The good is the unit is in very good cosmetic condition and the seller packed it very well. It arrived from Germany, so it survived a trip half way around the world without any damage. The bad, the seller didn't put the chassis in transport position or disassemble the platter. Parts got loose during shipment. I found

  • Re: Good resellers within a few hudred miles of Philadelphia?

    If you're looking for household appliances in the USA (not B&O), a good place to look is at a Sears Outlet store. Same thing as above, they sell discontinued models, product returns, or scratch and dent appliances that are otherwise new. As a foreigner, a good way to establish credit in America is by applying for a store credit card, such as a Sears or Macys card, and you'll usually get a nice discount on any purchases when you sign up. Once you pay the card off, you'll have an established

  • Re: Beolab Penta vs Beovox Redline 140 / RL 7000

    Specs are fine, but it comes down to the sound. Why not just get both RLs and Pentas and try them out? Once you make up your mind, either sell the other ones, or use them for a multi-room setup.

  • Re: Beolab Penta vs Beovox Redline 140 / RL 7000

    I heard both on my Beosystem 7000 side by side, Beolab Pentas and RL 60s. Both speakers sound clear and perform well, but In my opinion, the Pentas carry more range, especially in the lower frequencies. I went with Penta IIIs and had them for several years. I eventually had to sell the Pentas due to a move, as they were just too big to take with me. I'm using Dali Zensors now, which are also nice. If I ever do come across a good pair of Pentas in the future, I'd be mightily tempted to take

  • Re: Choosing my first Beogram and Speakers

    It really depends on what you're trying to achieve. From your post, it looks as if you just want to play records on a Beogram and listen to the music on some small speakers. As far as I know all the Beograms are just component record players, and you will need at least an amplifier to hear the music on speakers. The amplifier and speakers can be B&O or some combination of B&O and non- B&O. RIAA: My layman explanation is records are not good at producing certain sound wavelengths.

  • Re: Reconfigure Beomaster 7000 for 110 VAC???

    After a year being packed away and a move half-way around the world, I finally got my Beosystem back up and running with a 220V step-up transformer. I tested it with some old Apple pro speakers I had been using with my laptop. The Apple speakers sound surprisingly good, much better than on my computer, but I ordered a pair of Dali Zensors and am looking forward to once again being able to enjoy this wonderful stereo. I'll just leave it on 220v as it works perfectly with the transformer and I

    Thanks, I used to be a silver member, but haven't been active for a while, as I was changing careers, selling a home, etc. I still have the service manual I downloaded back then. I found the diagram and will attempt to rewire it. I was just a little confused as the different power supplies have different part numbers, and I was concerned that the coils might not support going from one voltage setting to another. Edit: It looks as if I can easily convert it from 220 V to 110 V and use a 5A fuse

  • Reconfigure Beomaster 7000 for 110 VAC???

    Hello, I recently relocated from Europe back to the good old USA and brought my Beomaster 7000. I would like to convert it from 220 to 110 VAC. Is this possible? Or do I need a different power supply? I am handy with a soldering iron. I plan on eventually overhauling the receiver, but want to be careful to not create any new problems. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Brian

  • Looking for wire to make replacement cord drive for Beogram CD 7000

    Hi Beoworld community- The cord drive in my Beogram CD fell off the spool and was damaged. I think my kids tried to load more than 1 cd in it. The cord drive is the thin wire that moves the cd tray in and out. It appears that the drive was made from 0.4 mm braided cable with a steel wire core. Does anybody know where I could find this kind of line so I can make a replacement? I tried 0.4 mm braided nylon fishing line, but it was too soft and wouldn't wrap cleanly around the spool. Thanks, Brian
