The price for a Beaulieu continues to increase.
Here's a stereo for Buy It Now at €2499. The seller, Stephan Binder of Vienna, is a person from whom I have bought Super 8 projectors over the years.

Not the later Studio model though Maurice. So would be considered expensive i think.

How does the Studio model differ, apart from the obvious spool spindles?

A lot newer, LED Meters,Digital Counter, Better Spindles, All later internal mods like claimed better and steadier shutter movement better steadier image on screen claimed etc.
Ignacio's report sums it all up best.
I will try to post some extracts later explaining it all.

This machine however isn't as old as it would seem. 1st thing is that it has the later knobs like the Studio model. Than it also has the Digital LCD counter as opposed to the older mechanical model. And last but not least it has the newer improved pull down claw. Some of the newer models have the Gold colored aluminum one that is improved over the older model which is black in color. This looks to be a transition model before the Studio model in some ways but surpasses the Studio model in others ie: the newer pull down claw. This is almost like the 708COM model here: http://www.s8profis.de/de/beaulieu-708com-708el-capstan-drive-stereo-filmprojektor.html
I asked Bjorn the Beaulieu specialist once if there was a big difference between the Studio model and the standard Beaulieu Stereo and he told me that the differences were only cosmetic but Ignacio from Spain who has had both said the newer models had resdesigned heads that were narrower which resulted in less possible scratching to the film? So who knows for sure.

I must admit Alan, i tend to side more with Bjorns theory. I have one of the later heads as a spare and i can see absolutely no difference whatsoever between that one and the originals fitted.
Equally there are no lines placed on the side of the films frames from using my two original heads??

Yeah I'm not sure what he means by that. My Beaulieu doesn't scratch either.

I don't think any do Alan, unless something is going wrong with them or set wrong on them.
