  • Re: Living a dream ????

    You're concerned? Oh dear, am I ever in trouble! I understand perfectly where you're coming from, I'm the same except I like the late 60's and early 70's stuff. My concession to "modern" B&O is my BC8500 and BG3300. To my ears, the old stuff performs - and then some. Sure the speaker cabinets can be intrusive with their

    The cable I used was just their regular DIN extension lead - plug at one end, socket at the other. I cut the cable to the same length as the original I replaced. I can't remember how well it was shielded now, there wasn't much choice available anyway though. What I got works great - no interference and no grounding problems. I also replaced

    Oh, that's excellent - way to go! I have a '1000 with exactly the same problem on the fine adjustment knob. If I can ever figure out a way to hold the socket together tight enough I reckon that packing the empty space in the knob with epoxy resin would be ideal and permanent. Also a permanent way to ruin it if the split socket isn't held

  • Re: Record Cleaning Device Question

    Hi Ben, I wash my secondhand vinyls and keep them as dust free as I can thereafter. I've heard of good reviews on that Milty roller though I've no first hand experience of one. I'd imagine it would be really good at lifting the sort of fine dust a record collects after years inside the sleeve rather than shifting the sticky fingerprints

    Changing the belt is a major hassle on these decks. Luckily the belt is the round type, nice and thick, lasts for years. Allegedly it is possible to change the belt from the underside - I've tried, and failed miserably. Last time I did this I lifted the deck up from the wood surround (remove 4 top crosshead screws and loosen the power and DIN cables

    Lucky you - what a result! There's two sorts of hub, the later one has a pin like Jandyt says and its well awkward to drive out and worse to get back in. The early one has a screw that you back out (do not completely remove, cos its well fiddly to put back) and is much easier to deal with. Either way though, you're better off leaving the platter

  • Re: BEOGRAM RECORD DECKS... VINYL RECORDS... IS IT TOO MUCH HASSLE?

    If you've been using any "anti static" cleaning fluids then check out this thread and get yourself a Knosti to get your records clean again. The only liquid I've found that genuinely will dry off and leave nothing behind to accumulate on the stylus is distilled water. I can echo the recommendation for the carbon fibre brush. You'll
