The B&O RF amplifier was first introduced in
November 2005 and at that time recommended to people purchasing BeoVision 7's
with one or more link TV's.
It has several benefits
over normal amplifiers you may purchase and the following are a few of the key
- It uses "F" Connectors as
used on satellite cable instead of the standard aerial plugs which means there
is a better 75 ohm impedance match which in turn means less likely to have
patterning etc on the link TV and less loss of signal.
- Unlike normal RF amplifiers
it has two inputs, one is your aerial and the other is the output of the RF
link from your BeoVision because it is perfectly diplexed within the amplifer,
your analogue picture on your link TV will remain perfect regardless of the
state of the RF output of your BeoVision.
- Where you have strong/weak
signals on either input, the amplification can be adjusted by
Almost no one seems to know
about this B&O RF amplifier which is a major reason for it being included
in one of these FAQ's
It is NOT designed to go on
the back of the BeoVision. It has a slide on bracket which is intended to be
screwed to the wall.
