Beogram 8000: Taking A Little Test Drive

Today is the day to try out this beautiful Beogram 8000 and see how it sounds.

I reconnected the floating chassis in the cabinet with the aid of a nice little hook tool I found a few years back. It is perfect for lifting the chassis support wires on and off the leaf springs.
























For the black metal deck lid in the tonearm compartment I had more old double-sided tape residue to remove. So more GooGone and scraping.






















For the re-attachment I used 3M automotive double-sided tape. It is easy to use and does a great job here.













































Next was a few iterations of putting the platter on and off as I adjusted the leaf springs to get the deck and platter surfaces aligned with each other.

















Now the Beogram is ready for a test drive.  Just need to swap out the MMC 4000 cartridge with a nice MMC 20CL.






















For some reason I was in the mood to hear the Rolling Stones It's Only Rock 'N Roll so hooked the Beogram up to my office system, sat back and relaxed.
























It's only B&O but I like it.
