Beolab 8002 Active Loudspeakers

Manufactured: 2010 - present
Designer: David Lewis
Colours: Polished Aluminium

An update of the long running Beolab 8000, the Beolab 8002 introduced new drive units powered by a pair of ICE amplifiers rated at 125W each.B&O themselves commented that sound quality was unchanged and so this can be seen as a rationalising of the range rather than a radical overhaul of a much loved icon.

The mode LED was repositioned, but otherwise it seemed business as usual. A three way switch for room positioning was now included at the expense of the phono socket previously fitted. As before, only one Powerlink socket was provided.
