BeoMaster 1500 Tuner/Amplifier
Manufactured: 1978 - 1980
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Rosewood, Teak
Beomaster 1500 was a compact combination of an AM/FM radio and a 2 x 25 watts RMS hi-fi amplifier. Four FM stations could be pre-set and tuning accuracy for all three wavebands was aided by an illuminated indicator and combined AFC/ST circuit. There were connections for a cassette deck, record player, headphones and two pairs of stereo speakers.
This was Bang & Olufsen's smallest receiver (1979 - 80) but in terms of quality and performance data it matched their top model, Beomaster 4400 in many respects - thus offering the same high standards of electronic engineering to those who demand excellence but require less power and fewer facilities. Beomaster 1500 therefore represented extremely good value.
Beomaster 1500 could be made up as part of the Beosystem 1500 when linked together with other compatible Bang & Olufsen products.
