BANG&OLUFSEN BEOMASTER 8000
The Beomaster 8000 was introduced in 1980 and it was the most powerful receiver ever produced by Bang&Olufsen. This classic piece of audio equipment was designed by Jakob Jensen. This was a very expensive receiver featuring a digital tuner with 9 FM presets while the amplifier was using a dual-mono construction. Under the large digital display there was a large FM tuning wheel, a large electronic 60-step volume control, source control and radio presets. All these functions are remote controllable with the included Beolab Terminal that could also control a cassette deck and the turntable. Secondary functions are located behind a large brushed aluminium panel that gently opens at the touch of a button. To complement this beautiful and technologically advanced receiver there were available the perfectly matching Beogram 8000 linear tracking turntable and the Beocord 8000 cassette deck while the loudspeakers were the Beovox MS 150. The system built using these components was called Beolab 8000 and it was also available in white finish while the dedicated racks were the SC 80 and SC 80-2. There was available a simplified version of this system in a compact form as the Beocenter 7000 series that can be seen in our collection here. Technical data: Continuous power output per channel: 150 W/4 ohm, 100 W/8 ohm, Dimensions 67 W x 15 H x 37 D cm, Weight: 21 kg.
