Updating a classic design with a contemporary twist, the Beogram 4000c Recreated Limited Edition turntable is a nifty launch from Bang & Olufsen. As well as celebrating the Danish brand's 95th birthday, the release also marks the first product in its Classics line, which aims to breathe new life into timeless products from its archive.
95 original Beogram 4000 turntables were recently returned to Denmark for a sprucing-up in the same facility they were made in during the 1970s. Each item was then taken apart, carefully cleaned and repaired with new components where necessary, ensuring that the sound quality meets 2020 standards. The new-and-improved model also received a smart yet subtle redesign, complete with a new hand-crafted solid oak frame, a new dust lid and aluminium detailing that has been polished and anodised to produce a champagne-hued finish. The addition of a RIAA photo pre-amplifier also means that the Beogram 4000c can be connected to modern-day speakers, meaning that the turntable's analogue vinyl sound can be amplified in a whole new way.
