Production: 1983 - 06/1988
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Beocenter 7007 was a further advancement of the Beocenter 7000. Looks-wise it was slighty redesigned in that newer keys were incorporated to give it a more modern feel. There was also the inclusion of a TP2 button to allow an auxiliary connection. A new MMC5 combined cartridge/stylus was included - itself an innovation - as well as a slightly modified tone arm.
However, the 2 x 40 watts amplifier - found on Beocenter 7000 - remained the same, but there were improvements to the programming facility in that with Beocenter 7007 two events could be programmed, and not just the one and a different remote control - the Beocenter Terminal - was introduced.
The radio covered all three bands and five preset buttons allowed for instant access. There was also a further ‘free floating’ button for the storage of a further radio station.
The cassette deck became easier to use with the tape address being just keyed in to provide speedy access.
Recommended speakers were the Beovox S55 and System Cabinet SC77 (or SC50) could be purchased in which to house the music system.
Beocenter 7007 was also known as Beosystem 7007 when used with suitable Bang & Olufsen loudspeakers such as the Beovox S55.
