Launched in the 1970s, the Beogram 4000 series turntables defined the aesthetic of an era: becoming a classic with music lovers, collected by art museums and included in design history books. Its influence can still be seen and heard today.
Bang & Olufsen wanted to revisit the Beogram to celebrate how – even as music and technology continue developing – there are unchanging values which make a product beautiful and unique. Values that have held true at Bang & Olufsen since 1925.
Bang & Olufsen’s Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition sources 95 original units of this most iconic of turntables – marking our 95th year of creating remarkable experiences – restoring them for contemporary sound systems, while maintaining the timeless spirit at their core.
Each original Beogram has been worked on by a dedicated team of skilled engineers, technicians and craftspeople at our facilities in Struer, Denmark. Our experts clean, refurbish, update and fine-tune every single element of the record players by hand.
Restoring the Beogram takes the same precision, care and passion as restoring any masterpiece: you want to reveal the true essence of the original creation, and renew the product to be experienced now and for decades to come.
The original design team created the Beogram 4000 series back in the 1970s to be as obsolescence-proof as possible, leaving space in the internal product architecture for future technology upgrades.
Skip to the present, and the team reimagining the Beogram 4000c has taken advantage of that future-thinking by building in an RIAA pre-amplifier, meaning the turntable can easily be integrated with all home speaker setups using a wired, line-level signal on two RCA phono plugs or 3.5mm line signal wired connection.
The Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition refreshes and complements the original look and feel of the record player: the original aluminium has been polished and anodised to allow the material to glow. The crafting of a wooden frame adds warmth and intimacy to the touch. The addition of a new cover accentuates the Beogram as an elegant, subtle object in your living space.
