  • Re: Stereo light on BM1000 and 900K

    The trimpot for adjusting the lamp sensitivity can be adjusted through a hole in the rear of the chassis on the BM1000(at least on mine anyway).A good start would be to clean it(or replace it)and give it a tweak.Those caps that Martin mentioned are 5uf,I replaced them with a pair of new 4.7uf and heard a marked improvement in stereo separation.The old

  • Re: advice needed for beomaster 3000-2

    It appears to be normal not to have those lights without an input signal, just tried my fully functional 3000-2 with no antenna and it won't turn the lights on either.Clipping a couple feet of wire to the center pole of the antenna input gets things working. I have not heard anything about phasing out the analog FM radio in the states.Although a

    Very observant Simon,I was indeed only looking for speakers!Somehow Jeff got my wife to see the pics of the receiver/speaker combo.( With my help) Anyway,the wife saw the pics of the receiver and liked it,Needless to say,I'm glad I bought the whole kit.The sound of this little vintage receiver is very much in the class with my tubed gear.Sweet and

    Welcome to the forum Roger! The Beomaster 3000-2 is certainly worth saving.I have one fully restored,and it's an excellent receiver in both function and form.You will find all the help you need on this forum,lots of expertise.You will first need some DIN style speaker connectors.The tape input will work for your CD player but the standard RCA connectors

  • Re: My latest acquisition

    Thought I would give an update. All the electrolytic caps have been replaced,idle current trimmers replaced and voltage adjustments have been made,switches and pots cleaned/deoxidized,a few resistors that were barely in spec were replaced and Solen caps were installed in the Beovox2200s.Also the burned out stereo light was outfitted with an LED(I might

  • Re: BM1000 FM detector circuit

    Excellent!Thanks. I have a scope.I think I will need to get a signal generator soon.I did move the pot as I was cleaning it,but before moving it I measured the resistance so I could return it to original.I will put the headphones on and try adjusting it. Thanks again Paul

  • Re: BM1000 FM detector circuit

    Thanks Mika Makes sense.I didn't think of that.If the diodes and coils are of fairly loose tolerance then the pot can help compensate for this and a fixed resistor would be difficult or impossible to match.I assume the many circuits I have seen with fixed resistors are simply a compromise? In the manual it simply says"adjust for best noise

  • BM1000 FM detector circuit

    I just finished replacing all the electrolytic caps in my BM1000.The amp is sounding excellent with my CDX but the FM was a bit flat sounding with very little stereo separation.In fact when switching the mono switch,I actually had to listen carefully to hear the difference.That is until I changed the last two caps shown in the diagram.I replaced the

  • Re: Polyester caps

    Thanks for the great input guys! I can clearly see the differing opinions on this topic.I expected it,and I welcome it.I am glad to hear the experts opinions and am thankful that no one is holding back simply to be agreeable.As I stated in the opening of the thread,I want to attempt to preserve the original vintage tone of this machine.This may be easier

  • Re: Polyester caps

    Thanks Menahem I won't be doing the full,cost no object,type restoration you mentioned but I will indeed be checking the resistors and replacing as nessessary.I have used the Dale resistors you mention in some of my tube projects. In regards to the caps I think I will take things slowly.I will first get the power supply caps replaced and get my
