Bang & Olufsen is bringing its classic turntable back in the most unadulterated way possible. The high audio equipment maker has recently announced that it is bringing back its classic 1970s turntable as part of its 95th anniversary celebration.
Folks, meet the Bang & Olufsen Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition. What makes this limited edition record player especially alluring is, it is not a reproduction of its original. It is the original.
The turntable was found and brought back to Struer, Denmark where it was restored and reimagined. I guess you could say it is a restomod in car-speaks.
All told, 95 units were identified and each disassembled, cleaned, and where needed, new parts are added. When all those are done, each unit is individually tested then fine-tuned to meet the company’s specifications.
The look and feel of the original are unmistakable. Where aluminum is presence, it is polished and anodized in a warmer champagne tone to create a subtle glow while a new hand-crafted solid oak frame further enhances the visual warm. There is a new dust lid too, rounding up the classic look.
The Bang & Olufsen Beogram 4000c Turntable further features an automated tangential tonearm paired to a high-performance stylus and built-in RIAA phono pre-amplifier for hooking up with modern speakers via phono or 3.5 mm line-level connection.
Only 95 numbered units of the Bang & Olufsen Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition will be made available, each commanding a princely sum of £9,000 (around US$11,729).
It will be showcased at select Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide starting October 12 before it officially goes on sale on October 19. Meanwhile, you can learn more about this restored classic HERE.
