After performing the mechanical and electronic adjustments of the Beogram 8000 that gave me some fun insight into aging transistors recently when I troubleshooted its record detection circuit, it was time to reassemble the unit and do a test drive:
I selected "Water Babies" by Miles Davis. One of my favorite records of all time. In fact I bought this one in 1979 as my 29th record (as you can see from the number label in the top left corner...;-)! This Beogram 8000 came with a decent MMC20CL cartridge and Miles sounded very smooth! It seems this Beogram is working well again. I will play it for a few more days and then it will be time to send it home to California.
