Hi -- I've got some stereo equipment acting up. I figure if any of you are serious about your stereo equpment as you are about your clothing, that you might be able to point me in the right direction. Have a B&O turntable and Nakamichi tuner -- and one of the two is acting up (but not sure which). Â Both are quite old pieces. Â But have been very trusty (until now), all the same.
Getting back on track (.), Horace, I've communicated a bit with Peter at http://www.sound-smith.com/
about some repairs. In the end I decided it wasn't worth fixing but I was able to describe the problem and get an idea of what it would cost to repair. There was another place whose name escapes me in New England that did B&O repair work too. Did you mean Nak tuner or receiver? The B&O - is it one of the linear tracking models? As far as clock radios go, I too have a Bose Wave (1st generation) that I won in a spiff. It's decent, but I wouldn't have spent $350 for it...I rather like my older Proton. I think the Kloss Tivoli is supposed to be decent (I assume it has an alarm function) but again, I haven't heard one in person. I agree with comments about Maggies - absolutely lovely on acoustic music.
Sir, thanks for your reply. Meant Nak receiver. B&O linear -- older model probably early or Mid 80's. Beogram RX 2. My problem is the sound from records playing on turntable -- it's not coming out of both speakers. I thought it might be the turntable because sometimes sound doesn't come out of both speakers no matter what volume. But then sometimes the problem appears to be receiver, because I can turn up volume loud on receiver and then everything appears to work. Tape deck and CD player work fine. Speakers okay too. Sound from radio works swell. I've got to look at it more carefully, narrow down problem. Thanks for tips on Proton, et al. Have to check those out. But happy with Bose CD clock radio, even if rather expensive.
