BeoGram Record Decks
Production: 1986 - 08/1990
Documents: Owners Manual, Schematic, Service Manual
Taking over from where Beogram 5005 left off, the ‘new’ Beogram 5500‘ turntable was almost identical to its former stable-mate. A beautiful white version was released in time for Bang & Olufsen’s sixtieth anniversary; this was to be the start of a new, welcome rerun of white products in the B&O range.
The MMC4 cartridge was retained from the former model.
The Beogram 5500 record-deck was replaced by Beogram 6500 some four years after its introduction.
