View Full Version : B & O question

12-24-2005, 09:31 AM
Hello. I'm a novice in this forum so please excuse my mistakes or ignorance. I recently inherited some Bang and Olufsen components from an old friend. I know the equipment is in good working order but has some scratches from much use and a few moves. There is a Beogram 8000 turntable, a Beomaster 2400 amp/tuner and a Beocord tape deck. The speakers were kept by a member of the family. Unfortunately, I can't use the equipment. I recently moved to a smaller home and we already have a new system that meets our needs. A neighbor has offered to take the system off my hands. I'm hesitant to part with it without getting fair value for it. It's not the $ so much as it would be feeling like a fool if I "gave it away." Can anyone suggest a website for determining the components value (already looked on eBay without much success) or is there someone on the forum who buys and sells B & O?

As something of a Beo-phile, i can offer the advice that here in the UK, a Beogram 8000 in GWO with cartridge would fetch about £150-£200 and the Beomaster 2400 about £70-100. The Beocord would be worth less depending on model number and condition, unless it's a 9000 in which case it's one of the best cassette decks made by anyone and worth £200-£300. Obviously this is UK market and prices so this may differ depending on where you are in the world!
