  • Re: Beolab / Beomaster 5000. My dilema

    HAHA! I'm loving this. I'm just picturing a whole community of B&O addicts whincing and cringing at my posts. I think my plan is to get them working if possible. Radfords workshop is miles from where I work, but may take a trip there one weekend, unless someone can suggest somewhere in south wales. I will have a rethink about their future

    Blimey, must have had a few last night, totally forgot I'd posted that pic! [quote user="joeyboygolf"] I found this on t'internet. Radfords Workshop is based in the Bristol shop. It is run by Alan Gardner who has been with the company since 1974. He specialises in repairs to all hi-fi and home cinema equipment except vision products

    [quote user="joeyboygolf"] No need for a full restoration. They could probably be going again by replacing two or three leaky capacitors. [/quote] Cheers joey, would be great if that was all it was. unfortunately i have no idea what youre talking about Only joking, but what I'm saying is testing/ replacing capacitors is not something I

    [quote user="Søren Mexico"] Spanner Dont do anything stupid, we have to save these ikonic pieces, or get them into the hands of people who loves them, where are you situated, maybe we can find some help near you. Please dont scrap them, maybe someone will be willing to give you another working system in change for yours, or try to sell

    [quote user="chartz"]Are you out of your mind??? Don't you dare doing that. Never. Oh dear! :-) [/quote] I kinda knew I would face the wrath of the message board for my suggestion. But seriously though, if its only any good for spares it could be the only worthwhile way of keeping it alive. I wonder how many other empty cases there are

I kinda guessed they were valuable but foolishly binned the speakers and cubes The radio and a beogram

    Thought I'd give you my serial numbers as a first post. Beolab 5000, type 5303, serie 02, No 65395 Beomaster 5000, type 2005, serie 01, No 15492 They are both just gathering dust at the moment, along with a Beogram 1000. The beomaster and Beogram were completely dead when I tested them recently. The Beolab was in use until not so long back, but
