Manufactured: 1988 - 1990
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Black, Silver

This advanced CD player was straight from tomorrow's world - but it would still marry up happily with any Bang & Olufsen system created over the previous decade. It was as simple to use as a tape recorder. The track search system was invaluable for finding your way quickly around the disc. A display indicated the number of the track you're on.

Recording was just as straight forward. And you could time recordings to the second - just press the sensi-touch panel and you could find out how much time was left on a particular track or on the whole disc.

This replacement for the former Beogram CDX used at that time, new 16-bit technology and an all-new optical system. The player itself though, was derived from the Philips CD150 machine; the same as that in the Beocenter 9000. After one year the machine was discontinued and replaced by the Beogram CD 3300 - a similar sensi-touch CD player - as part of Beosystem 3300.
