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.

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.

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.

Hi Alls,

After a long search I finally got an U70. Warm thank you to member Square4 for:
- reigniting the interest,
- providing an accurate model to recreate the owner's guide,
- kindly offering the real one which is now in my vault!

Below is the unit, perfect condition appart from left "Ear Control" lettering partly erased, with "recreated" ear pads, box and manual.
I know manual and box do not match but the other box (as much as I may want it) is quite difficult to redo.

By the way, Units its this box seems to come with a leaflet with a curly haired guy viewed from the side on it: do someone have it and tell me what's in it?

Regards.

Thank you Henrik,

That's THE box that matches the User Guide. I was tempted to recreate it but there is two main issues:
- The cardboard has a linen texture on it difficult to reproduce and that would instantly reveal the cheat.
- Even if, I don't know how to reproduce the black velvet cradle. 

While doing my research I came across that second box design which must have been developed to reduce costs.
Obvisously, it did also reduce the luxury feeling by making it looks like a counterfeit U70.
But it is also easier to reproduce, so I have the first counterfeit box from a counterfeit looking U70!

Today i got these 2 user manuals

The one with beocord 5000 is nothing special but the one with the beomaster 6000 i have never seen before

at first i thought it was for the very first beomaster 6000,but then i saw that there is a red light on the beomaster that lights up when using the remote control and only the last models had that lamp.

and it is only in Danish ,was it one that came with when you bought a  beomaster 6000?

Maybe Martin can tell.

Henrik.

With Steve (soundsheavenly) cables I have finally taken some time to link BS9000 to Core to TM1 to BL17

The Core links to other speakers in my 100m2 mansion Stick out tongue I am living the multiroom dream.

Next up is BG4500 to be included in the mix, and then a neat install when everything is working as should.

I am quite happy with the whole project, am thinking of a M3 for the laundry/bathroom Smile

I adore this oak version of the Beogram 6000 quite rare and I prefer it to the 4000c completely overpriced.... and it is just a stereo model 😄. Yours seems to be in pristine condition. I think very few people in the world have a complete 6000 Quadriphonic system all in oak ! I have only the Beocord 5000 in this finish, a beginning.... 🙄

These look gorgeous Henrik Smile

Nothing fantastic here, only this. I bought it for my A9, and it works like a charm with the pizza boxes as well. It will even change the volume of my Mac and iPhone, as well as change tracks Surprise

Near-mint condition.

I wonder what else it can work with.

Amazing!

I didn’t even know – or remember? – they had made shavers!

Did they manufacture them in-house?

They look a bit like Braun vintage shavers.
