BEOGRAM 8000 Restoration update
hey there, again.
Just thought i'd quickly update.
Dillens tachodisc and cap pack arrived - and after a long stint of zen-like calm and contemplation - i have got the electronics fully functional again
NOTE: Dillen should be recognised by B&O for saving their Beograms for future generations - a true gentleman!
I'm down to cosmetics (lid hinge - arm cover - aluminum tt surround), and one minor quirk - i replaced the belt, and now the stylus wont quite reach the edge of the vinyl - minor, because i can just press << < briefly, then play - then its fine. I'm suspecting that the fresh belt will now require a bit of recalibration of the SO switch? Theories?
Anyhoo, thanks to previous posts here, my new connector is on its way - and in a few days, i might even be able to LISTEN to it!
