      Square4 kindly reminded me of this topic and asked if I would like to create a thread on the new forum and as I recently bought a very iconic piece of B&O, I thought this would make a good welcome back to this topic.

      It looks and smells absolutely disgusting as it has a very thick layer of nicotine all over it. Luckily it looks to be in a very good condition for its age under the filthy layer, so I’m sure this will be a nice example after a clean and polish.

                  Added another couple of items to my collection of preproduction units yesterday. These fit in nicely with the other items I have from the same model range as they fill in some of the gaps between the earlier samples and units from the final production in terms of changes made during the development stage.

                  As some of you might know, I have a Beogram 3000 with orange text named ‘Beogram 5005’, a Beogram CD 50 with built-in control panel and a Beomaster and Beocord 5000 named 4000 with wooden trim and a different front panel design.

                  IMG_5324

                  The newly acquired Beomaster 5000 has rosewood trim on the sides as well.

                  IMG_3514

                  IMG_3515

                  This CD 50 didn’t come with the fancy built-in control panel though, but upon closer inspection it isn’t identical with the ‘normal’ sample I have.

                  IMG_3479

                  IMG_3516

                  The CD 50 with control panel is quite a different beast on the inside. It was based on an Aiwa DX-1000 whereas the final model was based on an Aiwa DX-1200 according to this website, where a detailed comparison between the two CD 50s can be found.

                  The one I picked up yesterday doesn’t differ nearly as much from the production-version as far as I can tell. The display is bit different though and it looks like it might still feature a repeat function, which the production-version doesn’t seem to have as far as I can tell from the owners manual, but I have yet to use a CD 50, so I’m not entirely sure.

                  The production-version:

                  IMG_3493

                  The early prototype:

                  IMG_3502

                  The early protype has additional functions shown to the left of the segment display:

                  IMG_3511

                  The newly acquired unit:

                  IMG_3485

                  I’m still on the hunt for a Beogram 5000 with rosewood trim – it would be even nicer to find one named Beogram 4000. The seller had a red labelled Beogram 5000 as well but without wooden trim. That one he intented to use instead of his TX2, so it wasn’t for sale.

                    Very nice finds, indeed.
                    Here is a Beogram 5000 in palisander (red label), just to give you an idea what it looks like.  🙂

                      I have found one for sale at Bremdal Radio:

                      https://www.bremdal-radio.dk/shop/brugte/b-o/pladespiller/bang-olufsen-pladerspiller/beogram-5000-2751029/

                      If 2751029 is the serial number, it most likely isn’t a preproduction unit though. This is quite interesting on the other hand, as this suggests, that it was possibly to buy these with wooden trim back in the days; a rumour I haven’t been able prove before finding this one for sale some time ago.

                        That BeoMaster 5000 with the rosewood sides is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. Lucky you!

                          at the weekend I bought this beogram 3400, it was supposed to be used for spare parts for my own 3400 quadro.

                          But this one is just perfect, the only thing is that the lid has small scratches after many years of use.

                          Instead of using it for spare parts, I will move the quadro module into it instead.

                            I have bought a set of the very very rare beovox 5702 type 6257, and they are the best speakers I have, they are better than both m100, m150 and ms150

                              I also bought these beovox m70, because of the trumpet stands which are to be used for the beovox 5702

                                  Congratulations RobinWal! And welcome to the (new) forum. The speakers look amazing on the concrete floor. Enjoy! (while I keep on dreaming of them some more :-)). Johan

                                      This would come under addiction – expensive addiction at that:

                                      Just purchased a used Kaleidescape Stratos S 6TB Movie Player to go with my 5.1 BS Theatre combo and get the most out of the system:

                                      Better than BR 4K video (Uncompressed Studio Video at 10 to 30% more data)

                                      Full uncompressed sound (Raw Atmos).

                                      Sounds frigging awesome!Kal1

                                        How long does it take to download a movie at 4K with uncompressed audio?

                                          So far, it looks like 2.5 to 3hrs. This depends on the file size. Typical BR discs store 66Gb, and I’m seeing 80 to 100Gb downloads on my favourite must-haves.

                                          The latest Stratos C apparently can do it in 15 to 20minutes.

                                          Main thing for me is the uncompressed sound. Staggering with the Theatre.

                                            I recently acquired a couple of remotes more in the form of these Beo4 hotel versions. I’m still missing at least one of the consumer versions of the Beo4 (DTV + V.AUX), but I have most of the regular versions now. Still looking for some of them in better condition though. And there are many different hotel versions, so the collection is far from complete.

                                            IMG_5210

                                            The Cinema looks to have been used regularly, but a mint one is probably not easy to find. A mint Play-version should be fairly easy though. I have a Beo5 as well.

                                            I also bought a Beo1 and my first BeoRemote One.
