  • Re: Beomaster 5500 How do I enable Speaker 2 with MCP6500 ?

    Hi Jeremy Last week, I encountered a similar problem on a BM5500 which had been given to me and I managed to get that one to work properly. I have just found this thread and can easily relate to all of the points that have been raised. Yes, I did put my speakers into the top sockets thinking that they were speaker 1 and consequently wondered why the

  • Re: Beogram CDX disc loading problem

    Hello sonavor I rebuilt my CDX hinge a few years ago but unfortunately, I have been battling with this same problem for quite a while now. About a year ago, I set up all of the limit switches according to the manual and adjusted the lid position using the allen key through the bottom opening - as Olli referred to. Yes, I managed to get the CDX working

  • Re: Anyone into slide rules?

    This little beauty helped me through university many years ago. The inner six concentric circles are equivalent to a 50 inch slide rule. Still in perfect working order and does not require a capacitor change. Regards Geoff

  • Re: Beogram 8002: Help Reinstalling Circuit Board

    Hello Matt I think that the following picture might show the spring that you are concerned about. If it is, then it is used to clamp the red display into the slot in the board. The spring hooks on the side of the board and the other end goes into the opening that you see in the picture. Place the LED display in position, put one end of the spring in

  • Re: Beomaster 8000 Volume Control Damping Gone

    Hi Rudy I had a similar problem on my BM8000. When I opened up the front, I found a broken rubber "O" ring hanging from one of the ribbon cables. This O ring was part of the volume wheel assembly. The assembly was fairly easy to take apart, the O ring was refitted and I used some high viscosity grease to damp the motion. Since then, everything

  • Re: BM 4000 Mexico

    Lovely work Soren, I always think that this is the best part of any project, the time when you give the woodwork a good dose of TLC. A liberal coating of wax and a good shine seems to enhance the sound as well, making all of that work on the internals worth the effort. You have here an excellent example of what can be achieved and it looks brilliant

  • Re: 6000 QUAD Project

    Hello Olly Sorry for the late reply but I have been out of the loop for a while, overseas on business actually. Thanks for sharing your video showing the delay circuit on the BM6000 speakers. The “thud” that I heard was very similar to mine and I am sure that you will have fixed that issue. I found the video hard to work out the circuit

  • Re: Beogram 1200-starting 'slide bar'-what pulls it back after it engages on the wheel?

    Hi I have had a look at the service manual and the parts that you might be interested in appear to be Nos 71, 72 and 73, designated as start button, start arm and start spring. If that is the case, then I have some old photos from this machine which might be of use. Hope that it is of some help to you Good luck Geoff

  • Re: 6000 QUAD Project

    Hello Olly I definitely agree with your thoughts on this type of amplifier and have been wondering myself how the design can ever work without causing a “thud” on startup. I have used the scope to have a look at the voltage changes and noted the following points. The DC voltage on the output capacitors builds up very slowly, taking up to
