I Beomaster

Amazingly I have been gifted another turntable! It’s a 3 in 1 Bang and Olufsen, Beocentre 4600 which is an 18kg giant slab of Danish wankology, made between 1977 and 1980, this one believed to be a 1980 model. The 4600 was last made in Dec 1980, within a few days of John Lennon being shot. Coincidence? Some great albums fall into that time frame, but to me it looks like it should only spin Kraftwerk, or maybe a Yoko album. This amazingly beautiful machine a gift via Len “Scandotrash” Nielsen and friend.

    I remember the B&O display that used to be placed in the old Perth Airport, the window was in between the domestic and international terminals when they were one building.

    You have THAT B & O, and I’m very jealous.

    I think Steely Dan would be the vinyl of choice for the serious enthusiast who bought one of these.
    Listen to that fidelity!

    Very swish, TLA. Me likes this interpretation of Modernism, as applied to hi-fi.

    Respect. There was real technique required to the dual-push Play-Record.

  11. Just realised it’s got weird old 2 pin speaker connectors. Wonder if Dick Smith will have. Will I have to solder the fuckers?
