The original Beogram 4000 was introduced in 1972 and it took the world by storm. It was both a styling triumph (designed by Jacob Jensen) and a technical tour de force. In October 2020 Bang & Olufsen announced a Limited Edition run of 95 units of this original iconic turntable which set the standard for all (tangential) record players that came after. In order to mark the 95th year of creating remarkable experiences Bang & Olufsen sourced 95 original units (the 4002 version) and restored them for contemporary sound systems while maintaining the timeless spirit at their core. Each unit is disassembled manually and inspected and every single component of each Beogram is painstakingly cleaned. New parts are added from the smallest screw and ball bearing to the drive belt. These units will receive a new hand-crafted wooden frame, updated finish on the minimalistic and intuitive control pad, also a preamplifier is installed together with a new pickup cartridge. This new "Bang & Olufsen Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition" now fitted with both DIN 5-pin and Line out connectors becomes compatible with all modern Bang & Olufsen speakers (excluding Bluetooth models)
