    Re: Flash your B&O!

    I think that the BV8 was the perfect TV for me as it was not a "design statement" TV (BV10 is beautiful but it's too much for my taste), just a B&O TV with a superb center speaker, high end picture quality, built-in 5.1, and a nice and discrete style.

    Now it will be connected to my videoprojector with an Atlona 4x2 HDMI switch, supported by the PUC as if it was internal connexions... I like how the software have added features that weren't there when I bought it (just sad that I have to pay 80€ for the update... And that Atlona prices are crazy!)

    Re: Flash your B&O!

    It's not a lot, but it's not bad : the fact that a HDMI hub (Atlona/Gefen) can be accessed as if it was internal HDMI is something well done for a TV that had initially only 2 HDMI inputs... Now you can assign a source to HDMI 3 or HDMI 4...

    Re: Flash your B&O!

    I have a Rotel RSP-1068 surround preamp/processor sending signals via line in. My setup is a 4.1 surround sound (Weird I know). 6ks up front, 4ks in the rear, and a B&W sub. The Rotel filters out the center channel and splits it between the 6ks. My TV is not very center channel friendly seeing as the stand is low and the whole length of the tv. I find that the 6000s imaging is good enough (for now) to mimic a center channel. I haven't missed one at all.

    As for comparing the 4000s to the 6000s... I think the 4000s are a LOT more musical than the 6000s. Any music sounds great on both, but the 4000s definitely sound more full and really do a great job of disappearing in the room. As for movies, I definitely prefer the 6000s as fronts. They are a lot more intense and direct. I also think they do a better job of creating a soundstage where you can pinpoint specific locations of sounds (great for movies). IMO I think the 6000s are the most beo-sounding of the pair, I don't know why, but I can tell they are B&O just by listening.

    A word of caution if you are buying used 6000s: the rubber surrounds on the drivers crack and wear out after about 6-10 years, and the speakers sound like CRAP. It costs a couple hundred bucks to order new drivers from B&O (there is a thread on it with part #s somewhere here). DON'T order new rubber surrounds online, as I hear they are stiffer and really make the speaker sound a lot more shallow (these guys need to be free, they move a LOT).

    Start an reply, and you see up left the tab "compose", change to "options" instead. There you will find "file attachment" and "add/update".

    Did you notice the "Save" button? It can sometimes be hidden outside the small window, down to the right.

    I have bought another Beogram 4000 which needed some exercise to get working again. The panels are beautiful, removed the nicotine from the first user with a good cleaning in dishwashing soap and a brush.

    Thats a pretty cool way of setting up the surround sound. I had that problem with my 6000s that the drivers cracked, but they were a bargain anyway so i cant complain, so ive just got the rubber rings on at the moment, they are almost as good as the original ones but as the rubber was harder it took ages for the new surrounds to run in properly. at the same time i put new dampening foam inside as the foam inside had deteriorated and was just dissolved when you touched it. Once i have some more money i shall treat myself in getting brand new drivers from b&o.  When you fitted them did you have to have them calibrated with the amps or did you do it yourself, or did you do it at all?

    They definately do have the best soundstage as movies come to life with them.

    Many of my friends have commented that I should open a museum for vintage B&O that could be a competitor to Struer Museum concerning examples of tangential tracking record decks Wink

    Re: Flash your B&O!

    I did not adjust the amps at all. From what I hear/have read, the new speakers are only a few decibels off, and if not adjusted, adds a tad more bass. I don't really think its necessary to adjust them, but some others may disagree. Regardless, the replacement drivers come with instructions on how to do so if you want to.
