Looks very nice, but 10,000 euros is absurd.

The Linn LP12 is a classic, and can be had for 3000 or 7000 depending on which version, and looks damned nice.

And most likely sounds better.

I think it's beautiful - and should be reliable as it's new....

I always prefered the look of my Beogram 4000s but they were so unreliable and without technical knowledge impossible to fix - I ended up with a Linn LP12 and have been happily playing vinyl ever since.

It's online at the B&O website.
I'm impressed. Complete restoration of a classing system. No added stuff... No wireless stuff...

Congratulation on the owners of such a nice system.

Karel.

WOW. This is awesome. The approach is exactly right.

I hope it is a succes and we'll get more editions like this. I'd never compare the pricing on this one with a "regular" new turntable. This is something else all together.

BTW: I guess this is the precursor of the champagne editions of the speakers?

Looks the business. I worry about the missed opportunity of adding modern connectivity. Seems the company continues on a path that could’ve been better aligned.

Jack: Hey have you seen, my new refurbished Beogram 4000?

John: Oh Great, it’s a 4002 but nice… Congrats!

Jack: I spent 10 000$ for it!

John: … 

Jack: you like records, right ? Didn’t you had a deck?

John: yes actually a Beogram 4000.

Jack: Oh you bought one too?

John: Actually no I bought a second hand 4000, followed some tuts on youtube, bought some spares from a guy at Beoworld, and take some advices from that very same friendly forum and here I was, a fully working BG4000…

Jack: Ok, but the tip?

John: Same as you, Soundsmith…

Jack: but the warranty?

John: I’ve repaired it once, I can repair it again…

Jack: How much?

John: Dont know maybe around 1000$.

Jack: But the…

John: Hey Jack, fancy another drink?

Funny idea, but cabinet with tapped corners?
They did that so much nicer back in the 70s.
The dustcover is to dark and the black tonearm and sensorarm look wrong but I suppose the arms were made black to match the ugly black plastic-looking Soundsmith cartridge.

And it's still not a Beogram 4000.

It's a funny idea but it will never be a classic.

I do like the champagne coloured aluminium....compliments the black more than natural aluminium would.

Almost everything but the dustcover, the aluminium surround around the platter and the look of the arms.
Everything inside is different.
The operating panel gives it away from a distance.

One half of my brain: "Hmm, It's definitely an impressive work of art but I'm not entirely sure about the colour combinations and the SoundSmith cartridge is a bit of a shame and wouldn't be my preference. I would also like to know a bit more about the phono stage. Plus, let's not forget that I already own a white Beogram 4002, so why would I need another?" Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE

The other half of my brain: "I WANT ONE!!!!"
