  • Re: Bang and Olufsen Outsourced

    Some very interesting points and again, I agree with you. Could the whole outsourcing thing be a symptom of a “throw away society” these days. My impression is that many want the latest and greatest gadgets with all the bells and whistles as cheaply as possible. Who cares if it only lasts 3 years instead of 30 years. It will be replaced

  • Re: Bang and Olufsen Outsourced

    I agree with Dkatz. I see no other reason for moving production to China other than cost cutting and production volume. Logic and experience tells me, to do that, there has to be a compromise – That being quality. I’m a huge fan of B&O but the fact that their products are increasingly made in China or Korea is off-putting.

  • Re: glass panel replacement beomaster 4500

    Mine are a few mm too big. Did you use snips and or file to round the corners? I bought a number of plates a little while ago but cannot decide best way of getting them cut to size. There is no water jet cutting available where I live so would need to send them away. BTW nice job on the Beolink - Looks good.

    I bought some replacement BL7000 mirror plates from Paul. However, they are slightly too big. Did your ones need cutting to size? If so, by water jet or what method?

  • Are these Bi-Polar capacitors?

    Can someone enlighten me here please; Are capacitors C1 (47uF) on board 60 and C2 (68uF) on board 66 Bi-Polar? The diagram is from the PSU section of a Beocenter 9500.

  • CD5500 reading CDRWs

    Just finished a complete capacitor replacement in my CD5500. Listening to the sound that this unit now produces makes the time, money and effort spent on it very worth while. However, what really makes me raise my eyebrows is the fact that this unit will now read CDRWs! A fact that has been mentioned before in the forums, but I can now confirm this

  • Re: B&O at the movies / TV

    In the movie "Sliver", with Alex Baldwin and Sharon Stone there are several scenes in his apartment where a pair of BL8000 and Beocenter 9500 is visible.

  • Re: Beocenter 9500 Upgrade Project

    I was just trying to convey that there is, without question, more detail to the music than there was prior to the upgrade. To me that is a good thing. As always,what sounds good is very subjective from one person to another. The use of WIMA caps and BB opamps is nothing new and in my opinion is better quality than the components they have replaced.

  • CD decoder board opamp replacement in analog filter

    I’ve been contemplating changing the opamps in the analog filter stage on the decoder board of my Beogram CD5500. Has anyone done this? Currently these are LM833 which have a reasonable specification but maybe more can be had with something else in place. My idea would be to solder in some sockets and experiment with swapping out different types

  • Beocenter 9500 Upgrade Project

    I recently bought a Beocenter 9500. Everything "worked". However, things could be a lot better as the sound quality, in my opinion, was way short of what it could be. The sound was quite flat and lifeless when compared to my modded BM7000. So the Beocenter has become my latest upgrade project. In essence I’ve done a capacitor and opamp
