Original Bang & Olufsen Beogram 4004 turntable designed by legendary designer Jacob Jensen in 1974 in Denmark. (Images serve as reference - current available mode is almost identical though). The Beogram 4004 became an icon of 20th-century industrial design and has been added to the permanent collection of MOMA in New York. The condition of the Beogram 4004 is very good. The wooden frame and the polished aluminum parts have been taken great care of. The plexiglas top has only minor scratches. The record player is fully functional and can be operated when combined with an B&O amplifier unit. The rare Sound Smith Cartridge MMC 20EN (worth 400€) is included. Technical specifications: 110-240V 50-60H / 15W. Please note that images are placeholders (currently showing our sold Beogram 4002) - The condition is even better than on the currently displayed one.
