No mention of where they are sourcing the turntables they are restoring? Modern mods? Bluetooth? Built in preamp?
Voice control?

B&O 9000 CD player is on my short list....

As I read it, you need to send them your BG4002 or BG4004 turntable. The photo does show a different control button layout, and what looks to be a different cartridge! The stupidest thing in the world B&O did was to discontinue their cartridges. I have a couple of these in my back room if anyone wants to avail themselves.

I have two Beogram 3000 tables from 1974 or so. Not as nice as the linears maybe, but still pretty classy looking.The SP 10,12 & 14 carts still have a cult following & can be upgraded ( cantilever/stylus choices) by a couple places in Europe.
Moving Iron carts can get pretty pricy.

I have a BG 4002 and 1700. If you have cartridges for either, I may be interested in one.

Or how about the SP 6/7?

I see MMC20E and 20EN cartridges on ebay. It is the 20CL that rarely shows up. The good news about these is the diamond takes much longer to show any wear at all because it is highly polished.

WTF?

Couldn't afford a Beogram table back in the day. Settled for a Rabco that I eventually got so frustrated with I beat it to bits. Don't see how this plan could be profitable unless they charge a (tone) arm and a leg.
