B&O Beomaster 6000 rear view

For sale, this lovely example of the Beomaster 6000 receiver, finished in rosewood. This unit has been thoroughly serviced by perhaps the UK's foremost expert on vintage B&O, and is set to provide many years of trouble–free service.

The Beomaster 6000 formed part of a matching series of technically sophisticated units produced by B&O between 1981 and 1986. It compliments the Beogram 6002 or Beogram 8000/2 and Beocord 8000/2/4 or 9000 cassette  deck. It provides a healthy 75 watts/channel into 8 ohms, enough to power the vast majority of speakers in a domestic environment.

Beneath the hinged aluminium top panel are controls for bass and treble adjustment as well as  6 FM tuning presets, and a default volume level adjustment. This controls the volume level of the receiver  on switch-on.

Electronic source selection is available by the black push buttons on the top right panel. In addition, on this same panel, are quick selection volume settings as well as the main up/down volume buttons. There is also switching for 2 tape decks and a record deck (MM input). An LED display shows the frequency to which the radio is tuned, and there is also a signal strength and “tuning balance” meter to aid accurate tuning.

The B&O datalink system is fitted to the Beomaster 6000 allowing remote control of Datalink capable sources (eg Beogram 6002), and source selection control of the receiver by these sources. For instance, if  “play” was pressed on the 6002, the Beomaster 6000 would automatically come on from “standby” with “phono” selected as the input. The volume level would be at the preset point previously set by the control on the receiver.

Beomaster 6000 remote control

This Beomaster 6000 is fitted with infra-red remote control, which at the time of the receiver’s manufacture, was an expensive optional extra. The supplied remote control handset allows for volume adjustment, including 3 of the preset levels. The 6 FM pre-sets can be selected, as well as record deck and tape deck sources.
