    Serial number/Age relationship

    Anyone remember how the serial number (first two digits)/Age of product relationship works?

    I had it from a post on the old forum but of course it is no longer available.

    Regards Graham

    LaughingLaughing I was about to ask something similar.

    Can we have a page of popular older equipments serial numbers and the age relating to them?

    Re: Serial number/Age relationship

    Here you go!

    The first two numbers relate to the approximate year of manufacture. If a product was made just before everyone went home on Dec 31st 2003, it will be one digit out from a 2004.. Huh?

    Okay..

    09 - 1994

    10 - 1995

    11 - 1996

    12 - 1997

    13 - 1998/99

    14 - 2000

    15 - 2001

    16 - 2002

    17 - 2003/04

    18 - 2004/05

    19 - 2006/07->

    Hope this helps

    Hi there,

    @ Lee - This is exactly the sort of info I used to store in the "my space" or "my controls" area in the old Beoworld, that I lost in the upgrading. Do you think there is a way we will be able to retreave this ? Cheers and congratulation again for the new site !

    Re: Serial number/Age relationship

    Some products differ, but it will be in there!

    Some V8000's and DVD1's have the Serial (for example) 9148345432 - but you just need to ignore the 9 at the beginning..

    Is there any chance we could have an article written up covering this topic and posted on the main site?

    Yes, of course.

    I am currently sorting out 'teething issues' which are now pretty much done, and after that i will be spending 1-2 days a week full time updating articles, news, FAQ's etc - as will Steve. This ought to create a pretty comprehensive database over the months/years!

    Re: Serial number/Age relationship

    Thanks, but I have  one question. How far back does this go? It would mean that 1986 will have 01, but what about earlier than this?
