BeoGram TX2 Record Deck
Manufactured: 1985 - 1991
Designer: Jacob Jensen
This tangential record player was a classic example of Bang & Olufsen's attention to detail. It had automatic registration of record size and speed, and seven repeat functions. The turntable was based on Beogram 5005.
There was also the benefit of Bang & Olufsen's patented chassis suspension and special tone arm design, which prevented vibrations from reaching the cartridge during play thus enhancing your pleasure and protecting your records.
The US TX2 had a 110V transformer but had no switching for other electrical voltages. As a comparison, most European models had an inbuilt transformer to allow for switching between other voltages.
Bang & Olufsen's preferred supplier for brackets and stands, STBbrackets, have made a wall mount solution as a general option for Bang & Olufsen Turntables. Distributed throughout the World by the Bang & Olufsen store network, the STB option adds to the diversity of mounting options and positions available.
»Wall Mounting Bracket
A universal shelf that will support all Bang & Olufsen turntables from the past 30 years. Including three cable entry points to allow you to bring cables from below the shelf or through the wall.
