    Often dismissed by the ignorant as being just "Habitat Hi-Fi", Bang & Olufsen are the exemplar for high quality audio components with impeccable styling.

    I have half a dozen of their cartridges and a tuner.

    Happy Birthday.

    I know a lady whose late husband had a top of the range set up by B&O, costing many thousands, then when she moved house she didn't even bother taking it with her as it didn't suit the new house.

    Instead she had Beo A9s (in bright red) installed in many of the rooms, and I have to say they sound great. She just tells them to play something, and away they go. So for her £15k or so she has stylish looks, great sound and zero hassle. Not so daft after all.

    More goodies into Beobloke Towers…

    First up, the Yamaha EQ-M77 graphic equaliser that completes my Yamaha 99 series midi system (well, except for the NS-99AV speakers and, frankly, they look crap so I’m not bothering with them!)




    And an interesting one - a Yamaha PF-800 turntable.




    Whilst giving their home market and the USA the delights of the GT-2000 and PX-1/2/3 linear trackers in the early 1980s, this is what they sent Europe and the UK. It’s a suspended sub chassis belt drive deck, so you can see why they thought it might have been popular! Sadly, the lack of Linn badge and weird cult surrounding it meant that not very many were sold.

    Rumour has it they’re quite good, though, and I’ve fancied trying one for a while so when this boxed, mint example popped up for a decent price, it seemed rude not to grab it.

    Looks like a solid bit of kit. Interesting arm, I wonder what the science behind that is

    What a turntable that is!
    So much more inspiring than a dull LP12…☺️
    If it's broke fix it.
