BeoLink Converter

BeoLink

Production: 1995

Designer: David Lewis

Beolink Converter was a useful Link room product in permitting older MCL-enabled products (such as Beocenter 2300/2500, Beocenter 9500, Beosystem 7000 and Beosystem 6500) to ‘talk to’ or communicate with another more recently-manufactured MasterLink (ML) product.

It also allowed a Beovision television set with an ML connector (such as the newer version BeoVision 1L, LS or Avant) to be connected to products using an Audio-AUX link.

It had an ‘intelligent’ auto-configuration feature, setting itself up dependant on what was plugged in at the time.
