Audiophiles Bang & Olufsen returns a classic turntable design with the new Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition.
When we travel to Europe (we know, imagine such a thing as travel!) it’s common to come home with a few souvenirs, be it some good Scotch or a few bottles of vino, a little art, or perhaps a shirt from your favourite Premier League team. Well, on your next soiree northwest, be sure to leave room in your suitcase for a turntable that’s seeped in rich Danish sound culture.
Based on the iconic turntable that turned heads and set the benchmark for those that would follow when it was released in the swinging 1970s, the new Beogram 4000c is Bang & Olufsen’s faithful recreation of an audio icon. Reimagined for today’s savvy user, the Beogram 4000c (which, sadly, will only be available for purchase in Europe, hence the travel plans) takes its design cues from a series of turntable models that thrilled music lovers and which were coveted and have been collected years after CDs, minidisks and solid-state players became commonplace.
Limited to just 95 units to mark 95 years of music device production by the savvy Dutch brand, the Bang & Olufsen’s Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition is made up of lovely-restored originals that have been evolved – disassembled, cleaned, maintained, and re-tuned – by a dedicated team of engineers into contemporary sound systems while maintaining their timeless spirit.
However, these are no longer old turntables; new design elements have been incorporated, ranging from the hand-crafted wooden frame through to the new finish on the minimalist control pad, with new tech, including a preamplifier and new pickup cartridge, added to enhance the music experience as well as the connectivity of the turntable.
Because there really is nothing like vinyl.
