Did anyone actually manage to buy one? In UK they only had 9 (in total) to sell, and they are gone...

Well that's a good sign for B&O to proceed with other iconic products. Smile

And which product(s) would that be then?
They made many iconic FM receivers, also some lovely portables - but FM? - Naahhh
They made many iconic TV sets - but ...- Naahhh
A passive speaker then? -- Naahhh

Beogram 4000 is indeed an iconic product. However, B&O chose to recreate a different model and only kept the iconic models name.

One that comes to mind (and the one I'm hoping for) is Beosound 9000. For less than 10.000 EUR, if possible. Big Smile

Beomaster 6000 quad. It would integrate nicely with the BG4000c because the buttons match.

hmmm.....if it costs 10k to cobble together a Beogram 4002 at todays rates the cost of producing a BM 6000 would be eyewatering, where would all the little clutch assemblies and feedback pots come from? not from China that's for sure......

Schletti82:

Maybe I should recreate some real BG 4000 and put an internal RIAA inside.

give him a new wood shape and the box I think I can do tooπŸ˜‚

maybe a good Idea would be I recreat a Beolab 5000 and Beomaster 5000 for it and give it the same wooden frame.

think oak would be beautiful.

and I can sell the hole system for 10000€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

 

Hi Schletti

That's a good idea, had a similar idea too 2 years ago, nobody liked it, so the Oakpanels stay still home ;-((

And finally the new BEOGRAM 8800 is presented in this Link:

Fourth line states: "In 1965, Bang & Olufsen produced its first record deck, the Beogram 1000.", which is factually (VERY) wrong, so I stopped reading. Design is a matter of personal taste (and the design presented in the link is definitely not my taste), but one could at least get the facts right.

Forgive my lack of knowledge on the subject, but what is factually wrong?

Some young designers (or so called…) like to design weird looking object with unreal specs and stick a B&O logo on it.
But most of the time they lack the very essence of what B&O design is or was.

This deck is nothing B&O to me.

1. Bang & Olufsen made record decks since apprx 1930.
2. The first Beogram 1000 wasn't produced in 1965.

- And the Beogram 1000 pictured has black surface so isn't first edition (which was more like "Hammerite" grey).

Thanks!

All I knew about the topic was what I found on Beoworld that says 1965 is when the first Beogram, the 1000 was introduced.

Did not know there were other record players before that.
