BeoLink Active

BeoLink

Production: 1995

Designer: David Lewis

Performing the same functions as Beolink Passive, but with connections for Power Link active loudspeakers only, the Beolink Active came with a Beolink ‘Eye’ for direct control of Bang & Olufsen active speakers using either a Beolink 1000 or Beo4 remote control.

No separate amplifier was required (as it was designed to use Bang & Olufsen active speakers, themselves using their built-in power amplifiers).

In the box were an aluminum-constructed control box, IR receiver, and a mains lead.
