BeoCenter 2300

BeoCenter

Production: 1991 - 06/2000

Designer: David Lewis

Documents: Owners Manual, Schematic

Beocenter 2300 was designed for the Bang & Olufsen buyer who just required a hi-fi system by which to play compact discs. If cassette decks were necessary too, then the purchaser could buy Beocenter 2500. But because Beocenter 2300 was only designed from the onset as providing the listener with CD sound, extra programming facilites were provided such as ‘naming’ your one-hundred favourite compact discs. The unit could also be programmed to skip unwanted tracks, too.

Noticeable to Beocenter 2300 were two glass covers which automatically glided to their sides when a hand passed in front of them. Behind the glass covers was access to the operating panel, radio section and CD player.

Twenty FM/AM radio stations could be preset. As well as the tactile operating panel, the unit could be distance-operated with either the Beolink 1000 or Beolink 5000 remote controls. Made available were sockets for headphones as well as an AUX socket.

When connected to its purposely-designed BeoLab 2500 active loudspeakers, the combined centre was known as BeoSystem 2300. The model was eventually surpassed by BeoSound 3000.
