    Probably to protect the asset value of those 50 people who paid £10k for the first/only batch of BC4000C’s

    I think the 95 original buyers are well “protected”. The kit is nowhere as “good” as the original 10k offer. The original offer had a different color / polish and also carries the 4000C name/logo on it.

    The 95 people basically received a “new” product, while the kit “only” provide a more professional refurbishment.

    One can wonder if this is not only a way of speaking.
    With the lack of details on what is done to the Beograms I wouldn’t consider this expensive refurbishment as “more professional” as the work of some fellow Beoworlders that go very deep into the guts of the deck (bearings, full recap, light replacement with less, …)

    For exemple, appart the one on the marketing photos I’ve not seen a BG4000c with the plates and the platter perfectly aligned and adjusted (you can skip perfectly if you want).

    They also restore the electronics, including introduction of a minor modification to the servo motor control circuit.
    And they fit a new platter belt. – A quality one.

    I don’t think it matters what was done, mule deck (of any kind) or original. Some people paid £10k for a product called the BC4000c.

    Someone offering up a poor quality eBay BC4000 for refurb, spending £5k to have B&O sort it won’t ever happen. B&O will lose credibility.

    However, it may be they can accept someone sending a wreaked eBay BC4002 for refurb and it leaving the factory as a well sorted, modernised BC4002.

    that was my original point and it has little to do with deck variations and original design quality. It’s all about releasing a limited run product with a name (bc4000c)

    Does anyone have a photo of a 4000x after the “kit”? It also gets “painted” if I read above correctly. Any idea what this “painting” looks like?

    – Which actually mentions Beogram 4000 as well.

    Yes, I’m with you on this but i think we’ll never have another answer that the one Steve gave us earlier in this thread.
