Danish luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen taps its own heritage to create the stunning Beosystem 72-23 Nordic Dawn.
We love it when brands turn to their own past to create something that defines their future. Half a century ago, the legendary Beogram 4000 Series turntables debuted and over time it has become a classic with music lovers, collected by art museums and included in design history books.
To create a truly time-transcending music system, one that connects the years 1972 and 2023, B&O sourced 100 original units of this most iconic of turntables and recreated them as Beogram 4000c for the limited-edition Beosystem 72-23 Nordic Dawn system.
Each original Beogram has been worked on by a dedicated team of skilled engineers, technicians and craftspeople at B&O’s facilities in Struer, Denmark, with every single element of the record players cleaned, refurbished, updated and fine-tuned by hand. The final step was to upgrade the technology – installing a preamplifier and adding a new pickup cartridge – to make the Nordic Dawn system fully integrate with all contemporary home sound systems.
Inspired by the light of a Scandinavian sunrise, the audio gurus used warm honey, ginger, and amber-toned aluminium finishes, paired with a perfectly crafted Birch Wood panel to shape the heart of the system – the iconic Beogram 4000c turntable, which has been recreated by hand and customised in the Nordic Dawn colourway to create an aesthetic reminiscent of soft Scandinavian mornings.
The timeless turntable is accompanied by a matching pair of the modern Beolab 28 stereo speakers for a refined and immersive stereo sound experience. The Beolab 28s are customised in the same warm finishes, with ginger-toned aluminium, Birch fronts, and Sandthorne Define fabric by leading Danish textile experts Kvadrat.
The solid Birch cabinet that the Beogram 4000c comes in is versatile and can store a vinyl record collection, and act as a connectivity hub for a smart Bang & Olufsen ecosystem integration, or as a wireless charging station for the Beoremote Halo.
Not bad with HK$550,000.
