Designed especially for use with the Beomaster 2400.2 the tangential Beogram 4004 was fitted with a 7-pin DIN plug so that when connected to the Beomaster receiver, it allowed the user to start and to stop the turntable remotely. This was practical as the record deck was fully automatic therefore by pressing PLAY on the remote control the user had full confidence that the machine would do the rest… recognising that a disc had actually been placed on the platter and calculating just what size it was and therefore just what speed to play it at. No worries if there was no disc actually on the platter as the complex electronics could calculate this fact too! Beogram 4004 was one of the earlier Datalink machines and paved the way to other records such as the Beogram 8000.
Interesting to note that the Beogram 4004 was the very first remote-controllable turntable produced by Bang & Olufsen. It was a good-looking machine as well as being a wonderful all-rounder in that it could still be used with the excellent Beomaster 6000.
Beogram 4004 was fitted with the excellent MMC 4000 cartridge.
