Beocenter 9300 was the very last of the Beocenter 9xxx series music centres. It was a generation which lasted fifteen years and has proved to be a good seller for Bang & Olufsen and a model which generally springs to mind when one thinks of the company’s history and the products that it has produced.

Still a good buy today Beocenter 9300 can be linked around the house for music in every room. However, Beocenter 9300 was really a cut-down version of the model that it supereceded, the Beocenter 9500, which even today offers higher specifications than any of its siblings. The Beocenter 9300 had been redesigned to cut down the costs of production and by definition, specifications had been deleted from it including that of two-way remote control communication, the RIAA pre-amplifier, Dolby ‘C’ and the microphone input. However, by way of compensation, extra radio stations could be stored: thirty instead of Beocenter 9500’s twenty.

Beocenter 9300 was also the last of the amplified Beocenters.  From the time that Beocenter 9300 was withdrawn, no further hi-fi system has had a built-in amplifier therefore the user had to buy separate active speakers.

System stand ST9500 was produced especially for accommodating the Beocenter 9300 although was equally at home with any of this particular system’s sister products such as the Beocenter 9500, 8000, 9000 and 8500.
