Bang & Olufsen Resurrects Its Iconic Beosound 9000 For the Digital Age

One of the world’s most stylish audio brands has announced it’s resurrecting another of its classic legacy products with an ambitious recycling plan that shows the industry what a circular economy can look like.

Recently Bang & Olufsen announced the Beosystem 9000c Music System consisting of a fully restored Beosound 9000 CD player marked with a pair of Beolab 28 speakers. The Beosound 9000 CD was one of the most iconic pieces of audio design back in the 1990s thanks to its swish glass panel and ability to handle six discs at a time.

Back in 2020, B&O had the ingenious idea of buying up as many used Beogram 4000 turntables as it could find to remanufacture them. The company bought up used Beogram 4000s and returned them to its legendary Struer factory where it remanufactured the turntables before adding the latest wireless audio technology to create a new product that married the best of B&O’s iconic design with the latest audio technology.

The new Beosystem 9000c is the second product in B&O’s planned series of recreated classics that demonstrates the Danish company’s commitment to longevity and its mission statement of: “Creating products that can stand the test of time.”

“With our Recreated Classics series, we are showcasing how Bang & Olufsen’s unique capabilities within sound, design and craftsmanship are creating long-lasting, circular products. We want to demonstrate that a second-life product can be just as attractive as a new product and that a high-quality item such as the Beosound 9000 doesn’t need to have an end date,” said Mads Kogsgaard Hansen, Head of Product Circularity & Portfolio Planning at Bang & Olufsen.
