Bottom Line:   
I bought a used Beoworld RX and the needle sits down about a half inch short of the vinyl. Does anyone know how to adjust the tonearm drop? I waited for months for the SoundSmith stylus and woudl like to get this thing moving. Right
now I have to stand... it sounds fine, but right now I would perfer my Dual.
Thanks

Bottom Line:   
An amazing product when I first bought it (early eighties): pristine sound, no rumble or wow, virtually no distortion or gram weight, absolutely best isolation I'd found for belt-driven. Wonderful for taping: the mechanism would drop the tonearm in exactly the same place every time, so you could time the start of the first song on a side with surgical precision. Only one problem: the tonearm up and began to decide, near the end of a side, to just suddenly SCRAPE BACK ACROSS THE RECORD!! and come to a halt limply next to the platter. Multiple visits to two different B&O-certified service shops couldn't fix the problem, and as it had _just_ gone out of warranty (what a surprise), finally stopped throwing good money after bad and got a Garrard.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great turntable that reproduces warm, well-defined and natural sounding music. With a B&O MMC2 cartridge, far from Ty's description in the review below, the result is fine soundstage imaging, quick response and good definition across the board. These TT's and cartridges give you hi-fidelity reproduction without having to break the bank. Another good point about the B&O table is its ability track extremely well. Because of its low mass tone arm, cartridge and minimal tracking force requirements, it tracks used and mildly warped vinyl better than higher end tables that I've heard. It is unfortunate, therefore, given the many positive attributes of the B&O turntables, that they are no longer manufactured or supported by B&O, though you can still buy new replacement cartridges.

Bottom Line:   
Not sure why Ty would rate this turn table a 1. This is a good table for value and overall a 3 or 4 leaning towards the 4 but certainly not a 1. Give me a break...Good sound stage...simple operation...brings life back to vinyl...I prefer to listen to LP's rather then my cd collection...To me that certainly deserves a better rating than 1. I will give it 5 stars all around to counter the snob below....

Bottom Line:   
If you buy Bang & Olufsen products, you more than likely buy with your eyes and not with your ears.
This table is very, very poor- gobs of plastic and a flimsy tone arm contribute to massive sonic confusion.
Save your money and buy a Rega P3.
