Bang & Olufsen Turns Back Time
To celebrate 95 years, B&O have looked to one of its greatest hits.
It was in 1972 when Bang & Olufsen’s Beogram turned the design and audio worlds upside-down with the Beogram turntable.
Now, in commemoration of its 95th birthday, the esteemed audio house has opted for a limited-edition the Beogram 4000, marking the first release of B&O’s Classic Initiative, which sees the refurbishment of some of its finest designs.
Rife with retro appeal, the Beogram 4000c emerges from an original 1970s model which has been disassembled, inspected, refurbished and restored.
It arrives with a polished aluminium anodized champagne body, while new hand-crafted solid oak skirts each deck. Elsewhere, performance upgrades bring the model into the 21st century through integration to a range of B&O’s speakers and a high-performance stylus added to the automated tonearm among others.
The limited-edition will see production of only 95 units, in line with the brands 95th birthday, and will be available end of October.
Approx. $15,337; bang-olufsen.com
