(Pocket-lint) - Bang & Olufsen has recreated and reissued one of its most iconic products - the Beogram 4000c turntable.

First released in the 1970s, the vinyl deck is the first in a planned series of reissued tech from the brand, as part of its new Classics initiative.

It takes pre-owned, original models back to the factory where they were originally created and then upgrades them with modern tech.

The B&O Beogram 4000c has been tweaked a little, with its original aluminium casing polished and anodised to give it a champagne hue - ironically making it look more 70s that before.

Also changed is the stylus, with has been swapped for a high-performance version. It sits alongside a tonearm that is based on the original B&O spec.

Finally, an RIAA phono pre-amp has been added to bring the deck up to speed with modern speaker solutions.

"At Bang & Olufsen, our products are built to stand the test of time. That is what differentiates us as a brand, what the Beogram 4000c so beautifully embodies and what we want to build on in the future," said the company's global product manager, Mads Kogsgaard Hansen.
