lawrencejmcook:
Nice system, Dennis. I’ve never seen a Beogram 5005 with a Beogram 3000 lid (with the buttons). Nor was I aware of the BM4000/BC4000. Thanks for sharing.

They are pre-production units.
I have an earlier version of the Beogram 5005 with the orange lettering and sloping dustcover. Mine is more "rough" and f.e. has unpolished and
unlettered deck buttons.

Interesting, Martin. Does your 5005 have a red label? Mine only has a white label with some handwritten notes on. No silkscreen on the circuit board. 

The serial number label on the Beocord 5000 with Beocord 4000 lid looks like this:

The latest one looks like this:

Same type number with '89' in front which I think means 'pre-production unit', as the same is the case with my Beomaster 4401s and Beomaster 6001.

My Beogram 5005 also only has a handwritten number on a white label saying "MPS 53" if I remember correctly.
It appears very basic with f.e. no transport safety screws.

This one says "MPS 32".

Mine doesn't have any transport screws either, but there are some marks in the paint suggesting there has been some, so I borrowed a pair from a BG3500 I have for spare parts when I had to move it.

Some time ago i bought these beovox 5000 with beovox 5700 units in

They have amazing midrange and treble but the bass is way too loud,so after listening to them for a few weeks my original beovox 5000 mk.1 is back again.

Wow Henrik, those must be one-offs!

I bet they sound incredible too.

Yes i`m pretty sure it`s the only set in the world.

And the cabinets are pretty much like new,no scratches or other defects.

Here is another set of speakers i bought some time ago

After a thorough washing with nicotine cleanser they became almost like new

 

Some manuals and instruction for use came with them

Is the CD50 also a pre-production unit? I've never seen one with a drop-down flap and extra controls before.

Yes.
It was actually pictured in the first catalogues like this.
But the controls were not brought on to production.

That is interesting and would have been kind of nice. I guess B&O figured it would be better to not add the complexity of the control panel door on the CD50 and opted for the IR remote control of those functions. I have one CD50 with the IR remote control and it works nicely. It allows me to use the CD50 with a non-B&O system and still control everything in the CD50.

Thanks for the link chartz, very cool looking at those prototype CD50 photos.... it has a fan! And two transformers! No wonder "the prototype is heavier: 7.9 kg against 6.2 kg".

I quite like the flap-panel and the displays but internally it really looks like a prototype! The real CD50 looks much more refined.
