Congratulations on Your new
Hi-Fi Stereo Record Player.
Your Beogram 2000 plays all
record sizes and has two speeds.
Its specifications exceed DIN
45 500 standards in every re-
Your Beogram 2000 is easy to
operate, Al! functions are con-
trolled by a central knob which
consists of a pushbutton anda
record-size and speed selector.
Your Beogram 2000 uses an
SP 10 À pickup which is
equippped with a spherical
naked diamond. Low stylus
pressure of 1,2 grammes
{ponds). The pickup arm
features self-adjusting anti-
skating device.
Even if your Beogram 2000 is
very easy to operate we never-
theless suggest that you read
these instructions first.
It is especially important that
your Beogram 2000 is correctly
assembled and set up after you
have unpacked it. Both the quali-
ty of the sound reproduction
and the handling of your pre-
cious records depend on it.
Your dealer can set up your
Beogram 2000 for you if you

Setting up
Transit Protection
Your Beogram 2000 is secured
in various ways against damage
during transit.
The resilient suspension which
carries the turntable and pickup
arm is secured by three large
screws. They should not be re-
moved but merely turned anti-
clockwise, using a screwdriver,
until they go against the stops.
The following components are
not mounted in place during
transit, but are placed in the
packing inserts:
Pickup cartridge with protec-
tive cap.
Center Adapter for Large
Record Hole.
Dust cover.
After having turned the three
screws anti-clockwise, simply
place the turntable on top of
the smaller under-turntable.
The easiest way to take off the
turntable is to proceed as shown
in this sketch. A slight pressure
applied close to the front of the
cabinet will tilt up the turn-
table on the opposite side.
; A
Counterweight and Pickup
Mounting the counterweight
and pickup cartridge, and ba-
lancing the pickup arm, should
be carried out with great care.
Undistorted reproduction and
low record wear are directly
dependent on correct balanc-
ing and correct stylus pressure.
Accordingly, before applying
power to your Beogram 2000
proceed as follows:
1. Slide the counterweight (6)
in on the short end of the pick-
up-arm (note the cutout on the
under side of the arm and a
matching guide pin inside the
counterweight}. Then screw
the counterwetght's rotatable
section (5) approx. five turns
2. Turn the stylus pressure ad-
justment screw {7} to © gramme
(pond) by turning it clockwise
against the stop.
3. Plug the pickup cartridge
(9) into the socket on the pick-
up arm {be sure to press it
home). It is advisable to hold
the arm firmly when fitting the
counterweight so that the bear-
ings will not be damaged. Re-
move the protective cap from
the cartridge.
4. The pickup arm should now
be capable of balancing so that
the supporting leg can be made
to “float” 0.5 - 1 mm above
the surface below it (see sketch).
To adjust for exact balance
turn the rotatable section (5)
of the counterweight either
clockwise or anti-clockwise.
Be sure to do this with the pro-
tective cap removed from the
5. The pickup arm 1s now ba-
lanced. Thereafter turn the
stylus-pressure adjustment
screw (7) so that the desired
stylus pressure is obtained.
Recommended stylus pressure
Is 1.2 grammes (pond).
Connecting to an Amplifier
or Radio Set
Your Beogram 2000 has a cable
which is fitted with a DIN plug.
Plug this cable into the low-
impedance gramophone input
socket of your amplifier or
radio set.
Connecting to the Mains
As supplied from the factory,
the Beogram 2000, type 5240,
is switched for operation on
220 voits, 50 Hz, and may be
operated on mains voltages be-
tween 190 and 265 volts.
Switching to 110 voits 50 Hz
requires a minor modification
inside the set. The mains vol-
tage range will then be 100 to
130 volts.
Dust Cover
To mount the dust cover, move
it in over the rear edge of the
top plate as shown in the sketch.
The cover can stand in any
position between closed and
open, up to an angle of 60 de-
grees. The cover may be left
closed during playing if desired.
Speed Adjustment
Fine adjustment of motor speed
is carried out with an adjust-
ment knob on the side of the
unit while observing the strobo-
scope scale on the platter
which must be illuminated by a
lamp powered from the
mains. Set the selector knob
to 25 or 30. Turn the ad-
justment knob until the black
fields appear to be stationary.
If they are moving against the
direction of rotation, the speed
Is too low, and the knob should
then be turned towards +.
Conversely, if the fields are
moving in the direction of
rotation, the speed is too high,
and the knob should be turned
towards —.

17 em, 33 1/3 r.p.m. These
records require somewhat diffe-
rent operation. Set the selector
to 30. Then lift the pickup
arm by hand and move it in
above the starting groove on
the record. Start the motor by
pressing the LIFT button. The
pickup will now automatically
lower on ta the record. When
the record has finished, the
pickup will automatically rise
and travel out to its position of
rest, and the motor will stop.
Records with Large Centre
When you want to play records
with large center holes, fit
the adapter which is provided.
If you wish to make a pause,
brief or long, while playing a
record, just press the LIFT
button. The pickup will rise
without travelling out, and the
motor will stop.
When you press the LIFT but-
ton again, the motor will start
again and the pickup will lower
into the same groove.
Stop before End of Record
Press the LIFT button. The pick-
up will rise, and the motor stops.
You may now move the pickup
arm out manually, and your
Beogram 2000 is ready to start
from the beginning of the same
record, or you may put on
another record.
Incorrect Operation
Your Beogram 2000 will not
suffer damage even if you inad-
vertently operate the controls
while the automatic control
system is operating. This may
cause the motor to stop, but it
will function normally again
when you start again "from
scratch’. Do not obstruct
the movements of the pickup
arm while it is under automatic
control. When the stylus has
been lowered to the record, or
when the arm is raised, the pick-
up arm can be moved with the
finger grip without risk, inside
the range in which the arm is
normally moved automatically.
Dust Removal
Always dust your records before
use with one of the antistatic
aids which are commercially
The diamond may be cleaned
of dust if care is taken, using a
soft brush etc.
Replacing the Stylus Assembly
If the stylus assembly has suf-
fered damage and requires re-
placement, the pickup cartridge
should be unplugged from the
arm. Hold the pickup arm firm-
ly while pulling so as to avoid
damaging the arm bearings.
Loosen the screw on the under
side of the cartridge; the com-
plete stylus assembly can now
be taken off and replaced with
a new one (type 8905429).
When mounting the new stylus
assembly take care to press it
home before tightening the

The replacement assembly for
the SP 12 A carries the desig-

Checking the Stylus Pressure
After replacement of the pick-
up cartridge or stylus assembly
it is advisable to check the
stylus pressure and, if necessary,
readjust the counterwelght as
described on page 2.
Be careful with the stylus! Put
the stylus quard on before wip-
ing the metal surfaces of your
Beogram 2000.
The external surfaces of your
Beogram 2000 can as a rule be
kept clean with a dry cloth.
Any grease spots on metal sur-
faces can be removed with a
soft cloth moistened in a cold
or lukewarm solution of deter-
gent in water, followed by
thorough drying with a dry
Dust Cover
Repeated wiping with a dry
cloth will eventually cause the
dust cover to accumulate a sta-
tic charge. Therefore occasional-
ly use detergent for wiping. Use
of alcohol is inadvisable as this
may dissolve the material.
Teak and Rosewood
If the cabinet surfaces seem
grey and dry you may apply a
thin film of teak or rosewood
oil but not more than once or
twice a year. Use a thin grade
of oil, especially for rosewood.
Blond Oak Cabinet
To remove dark spots, use ace-
tone. Do not use oil under any
circumstances - even non-oti
detergent or wax can cause
discoloration of the surface. If
mare extensive treatment or
repairs are required you should
leave this to your dealer,
