More Information about Bang & Olufsen Beomaster 2200 receiver

A great B&O receiver unit, with integrated cassette, FM/AM radio capability and phono input.
The unit is in good condition but could do with a service (e.g. crackling noises when raising the volume).
The access panel for the connections has to be pulled open rather than using the automated button (some parts included).
A few minor stains and scratches.

The receiver comes with manuals and accessories.
Please see my other two ads for B&O receiver and turntable, as these are also currently available as a set, both here and on ebay.

Further details (from Beoworld Limited):

Manufactured: 1977 - 1980
Designer: Jacob Jensen

Beomaster 2200 was a 2 x 40 watts RMS FM/AM receiver with logical operation and high reliability.

Operation controls were separated into primary, secondary and tertiary functions. The primary functions - those you used every day - included programme selection, volume control and the off switch. They were easily accessible on the outside of the set. The secondary controls were under an aluminium panel. These included facilities for presetting 5 FM programmes; balance and tone controls; AFC (Automatic Frequency Control facility - which keeps stations properly tuned) and a mono/stereo switch. The tertiary functions, which were also hidden but easily accessible, were the connection sockets: you could make all connections for a record player, cassette deck, headphones and two pairs of speakers without moving the set.

Beomaster 2200 had a modular chassis. The modules were connected by wire-wrapping - a construction method that enhanced the product's quality and reliability. This technique was originally adopted from computer production. The technique replaces conventional soldering, thereby eliminating any weaknesses arising from dry-joints, drop-outs and so on.

Volume adjustment was by means of a small slider along a numerical scale. Secondary controls included AFC (Automatic Frequency Control) coupled with silent tuning (AFC/ST), FM presetting dials for the radio, mono/stereo selection and loudspeaker switches.

These were all mounted beneath a hinged lid which opened when the PROGRAM panel was touched. A further compartment housed all the connection sockets which were easily accessible from the front of the unit. There was therefore a distinction between the functions which are frequently used, those that are used only once in a while, and those that would have been used a very few times during the set's life.

The primary functions were for selecting the programme source, controlling volume and switching the set off - so these were the only controls that were on the outside of the set.

Beomaster 2200 could be made up as part of the Beosystem 2200, when linked together with other compatible Bang & Olufsen products.
