  • Re: Just bought a Beolab 5000

    Three questions: 1) I have 235V at my plugs. The amp was set on 220V. The transformer was a bit noisy. I set it on 240V. Is it okay, knowing that the PSU is regulated? 2) What is the use of the TEST button? 3) The right side is warmer than the rest of the dissipators. Is it where the PSU 3055 are?

    Hi, I'm taking my pupils (60 of them!) to England actually! No business there whatsoever! Thanks for your invitation Olly! One of these days perhaps... in Manchester I only know the station, from the time when I had to go from Chester to Newcastle... back in 1989... not getting any younger eh! I am currently listening to my Beogram 4000 through

    Well I'll be in London in April... I know what to bring back now! By the way, the amp smells funny, like an old TV set. Those among you who had old 70's TV sets will understand what I mean! Not a bad smell, but the smell of old electronics. Nice! Such old components (nothing has been touched) shouldn't sound so good, they can't, they're

    Hello! Well I coulldn't erase the tuner footprints, even with white spirit and linseed oil. However, the amp works great, it really does, on a par with the Beomaster 4400! I'm soo happy! The sliders have no play and are silky smooth in their movements. No funny noises, nothing. Just beautiful music! P.S.: I prefer the old smilies by far...

  • Re: Replacement dust covers for Tangential BG400x, BG6000 series - economic feasibility

    Well, basically loads of Brasso (in France, you can't find it, we have Henkel's "Miror" ) to erase the scratches, then a product called Restom PAP 5000 , then car polish with a little wax for transparency. I use non-abrasive duster cloth. Let's say, well, 4 hours in all. Oh, one last product, lots of elbow grease!

    Yes, interesting. Well I managed to polish my Beogram 4000/4002, Beocord 5000 lids quite effectively and they look nice and shiny again with the same techniques I used for the 5005. Only, they will not recover full transparency; there is a slight haze that can't be completely gotten rid of. That said, Menahem, this is a great project. However the

    Oh dear! Bummer! Evan, don't get depressed, it's got to be a stupid thing like a bad solder, or s bad contact inside the fuse box, or God knows what. I'm sure it's not anything serious. Cheers,
