I’ve noticed two different models of floorstands for the BeoSound 9000. Model 2055 and model 2065. Are there any differences between the two?

I think the earlier one was a more polished finish whereas the later one was more of a brush effect. (Base)

Unsure on model numbers though.

There were indeed two 'styles' - but I was actually unaware they had different type numbers!

The first version had a polished aluminium 'trim plate' on the circular base. I'd guess these ran for maybe 2-3 years from the launch of the 9000 in 1996 to around 1998/9. The second version had the aluminium trim plate in brushed aluminium (circular effect) to match the casing of the unit. The circular base of the stand on the later version was actually very slightly larger.

If you find an earlier polished version cheap enough there's nothing stopping you popping off the trim and replacing it with a later one. It's only held down with double sided tape but you may have to get a bit rough with it!

The later stand is hight adjustable, too. Either to have it match Beolab 8000 or Beolab 1.

I believe 2055 is the earlier model and 2065 is the later model. Can someone confirm this?

This is great info! Lost out on an auction for a brand new 2055 recently and was kicking myself. Definitely prefer the 2065 since I plan on getting some 8000’s to match. Thanks!

I believe 2055 is the earlier model and 2065 is the later model. The service manual indicates that the 2065 is height adjustable. Can someone please confirm this?

I'm looking at the diagram from the service manual and I don't understand how there are two height adjustments. I just see 1 height...
