A special version of the Beogram 4002 for use with the Beomaster 2400-2. A 7 pin plug was fitted to the signal lead which contained the connections necessary to allow the Beomaster to stop and start the turntable, and because the turntable was fully automatic this made remote operation from the Beomaster’s ultrasonic remote control terminal possible. The system of control used was quite simple, and was not similar to or compatible with the Datalink system found on later models, despite the similar connector. The Beogram 4004 was nevertheless the first remote controllable turntable offered by B&O. It was replaced by the Beogram 8000 range. Text copyright © Beocentral.
