Bang & Olufsen is a brand synonymous with luxury and authenticity. Best known for their high-end consumer electronics, the renowned Danish company is now expanding its program of recreated classics with the launch of Beosystem 72-22 – a turntable that bridges the gap between the company’s iconic designs from ’72 and today’s digital technology.
About The Beosystem 72-22
With the Recreated Classics Program, Bang & Olufsen aspire to recreate some of their historic designs in a limited-production series. Their latest new-old creation, the Beosystem 72-22 (1970-2022, get it?), perfectly blends their iconic designs and modern cutting-edge digital technology.
Jacob Jensen designed the Beogram 4000 Series portable turntable in 1972 with an ambition to redesign the turntable to achieve a superior quality product that would stand the test of time. He left some unused space in the turntable’s chassis designated for potential technological upgrades yet to be invented. That is what made the creation of the Beosystem 72-22 possible.
Beosystem 72-22 Features
This luxurious music system with wireless connectivity consists of the recreated version of the Beogram 4000c turntable, Beolab 18 stereo speakers, and a Beoremote Halo remote control.
While Jensen used oak and brushed silver-aluminum finish in the making of the original, the 2022 remake is made of responsibly-sourced solid walnut wood and anodized aluminum with a striking Pearl-blasted titanium tone finish. Talk about exclusivity! As if that was not enough, the Beosystem 72-22 comes in a solid walnut presentation box, which doubles as a rather chic turntable stand. The walnut box can also be used as an elegant storage cabinet for records. As a very nice bonus, it comes with four classic albums released in 1972.
The Beosystem 72-22s costs $45,000 and is limited to just 30 sets. It is sold exclusively through Bang & Olufsen stores in the US and Canada.
