    If you go to the Harmony Central Amp Forum and search, you'll easily find the list of symbols and their corresponding numbers (maybe the chart is here as well...?). However, as far as I know, they won't give a date - for that I think you'd have to contact Bogner directly.

    Ah, that means mine must be 1402 ( /+-^)

    Is there any way to tell the year from serial numbers?
    BTW, it seems that Bogner is putting standard serial numbers now instead of cryptic symbols?

    I'm 448.

    I hear the best amps all have serial numbers lower than 500. Then Bogner started tickering.

    My Metropolis would be # 250, then. I'm pretty sure that Bogner built more than 250 amps by the time they started that model. That would mean each model has its own sequence.

    I have owned a version #2 Uberschall and sold it. The version #3 still had the SYMBOLS for the serieal number? I think they grew weary of answering everyones question about " what year is my Bogner ?"!
