Designed in 1983 as part of the Beosystem 5000 stacking system, Beomaster 5000 was a brand new product which turned out to be the last ever, all-new Beomaster. From that point on every ‘new,’ Beomaster had its history firmly rooted in that of either the Beomaster 5000-family or the Beomaster 1900-family.

A beautiful-looking machine, the Beomaster 5000, like the rest of the Beosystem 5000, could blend into anyone’s home circumstances, as its footprint was relatively small as every one of its four components could be stacked one on top of the other. The whole system was therefore both discrete and good-looking, its usability enhanced by the fact that around-the-house music could be efficiently and economically obtained. Following on from Beocenter 7700, Bang & Olufsen’s early ‘music wherever you go’ system allowed for other sets of loudspeakers to be used in different rooms, and by way of two-way remote control, the user could control the source by using inbuilt state-of-the-art electronics.  The MCL Link 82 product was very sophisticated for such an early system, and over the years the system was tweaked and enhanced to give us the Datalink system which was so widely used by other Bang & Olufsen products.
