Description

The Beogram 7000 was the last B&O record playing machine. Turntables still had appeal to serious listeners at the time Beosytstem 7000 was withdrawn, but as the company were also stopping the production of “Hi-Fi systems” based around separate functional components, there was no position in the range for further turntables. It was perhaps a shame that the last model should be a lightly-built mid-range offering with little in the way of unique technology or no-compromise quality features or details, given the rich heritage that the designers had access to.

The Beogram 7000 itself differed little from the Beogram 6500 that preceded it, and retained the built-in RIAA pre-amplifier. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
