      Hi Everyone

      Many, many years ago my dad and I went to neighbours house to help ‘fix’ their B&O sound system. fast-forward to 2024 and I am looking for the same system as it’s never really left my memory and I would like help to identify it:

      It was an old system, likely 1970’s – it was fitted (I think) within a cabinet, certainly the system was very cohesive. There was a turntable. I can’t remember now if there was a CD player or cassette player even. The remote was heavy and very solid in-hand. 

      The stand out feature was the dark (smokey?) glass cabinet and the red/orange LED lighting. 

      I absolutely loved it and would really appreciate any help in identifying said components / machine.

      Thanks in advance

        Bang and Olufsen really have had many systems with smoked glas and red LED lightning. Just a few examples here that might hint something more:

          Just read your post again, and can see that I did not get the turntable in the cabinet in my first reading.

          It could be a Beocenter 7700 wich also fits the description of the remote

            They are not 1970s – but then again, there weren’t that many LEDs in 1970s B&O.

              Here is a nice website that has pictures and dates for B&O equipment. This page may be the best one to start on:  https://beocentral.com/receivers

              Once you have identified the product, https://www.beoworld.org/products.asp can be used to find more detailed information about it.

                Thank you everyone. I am sure it was 70’s – also pretty sure it was red/orange lights – wouldn’t have been LED’s then but used that as an example. I just remember how sophisticated it looked and felt.
