What I don’t understand here is why a huge audio company spent so much time buying and restoring old units. Why did they not do a new production run??

I meant that why didn’t they just make new parts for the Beogram 4000?

A good guess would be that the technical drawings don’t exist anymore...

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?

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

As they made only 95 pieces, they also have had ask 100.000€ for it, it would be sold in 3 months.

Those who will buy them do not know nothing about BG4000 and would pay any amount... Unsure

Really?

I’m guessing most who buy it will be very familiar with the original 4000.

They may not have one already, but they’ll be familiar with it

Only if they don’t sell them all at that price.

If they do it’s good marketing.

So now that nicotine color that I've spend hours cleaning off countless units, is now called Champagne as the latest fashion?
Brings my mind back to all the 1960s and 1970s homes where everyone smoked all the time.

Intended or nicotine, it still looks horrible.
I can almost smell it.

In the still-frame while loading the mini-movie at the top, where you only see the technician's rear, his cart rails looked like a walker!   "That's brutally honestly targeted marketing," thought I...  

Even once the first few frames played and it clearly wasn't a walker, I still, in my mind's eye, saw that grey-haired guy in a bathrobe with wizened hands, shuffling down a featureless hallway in an old-folks-home!  Was half expecting to see the "1984" girl with the hammer breaking thru.  Probably says more about me than about the marketing guru.  (Yeah, yeah, I get that it's supposed to mimic a hospital setting, pushing the patient into the surgery...  Humor, y'all.)

Also, Martin, if they’re getting 10 kEUR each, you need to up your prices! 😄

Actually I heard from reliable sources that the pickup is a top of the line Ortofon pickup, not just a refurbished MMC1. I guess we will see.
