The tangential Beogram TX2 record player was sold as a basic turntable from 1985 until 1991, and used the same basic electronics as the Beogram 4002, 7000 and 5005. The design is slightly different, using similar colors and themes used with the Beogram RX2. This deck, designed by Jacob Jensen, is a classic example of Bang & Olufsen's attention to detail. The Beogram TX2 could be bought with any of the MMC1 to MMC5 range of pickup cartridges, depending on personal preference, as this turntable was sold without one. The special tone arm design prevents vibrations from reaching the cartridge during play to protect your records. It had automatic registration of record size and speed, and seven repeat functions.
In reviews some audiophiles say the TX2 is not quite up to the level of the earlier linear trackers from the 4000 or 8000 series. You have to be careful when you buy one, and you have to check with the sell if the suspension still works. Also, pickup cartridges can be expensive. Stylus cartridge replacements: This deck plays with MMC1, MMC2, MMC3, MMC4 and MMC5.
It was withdrawn for sale after a five-year period, which was not a bad life span for any electronic item in a rappidly changing world of technology.
