The Beomaster 6500 receiver was the brains behind the sound system.

In part a powerful receiver for FM/AM and LW broadcast bands. In part the control centre that created the connection between your commands and all the sound sources in Beosystem 6500. You could preset up to 20 stations and a light touch on the Master Control Panel automatically initiated the search and fine tuning functions.

2 x 110 watts/8 ohms output gave you a power surplus that provided a detailed sound picture even at low volume. The receiver also had Bang & Olufsen's automatic power handling control that prevented overloading no matter how many loudspeakers you connected. It also had a newly-designed socket which provided optimal utilisation of BeoLab speakers.

Beomaster 6500 could be used as part of the Beosystem 6500 hi-fi system and could be controlled with with the Master Control Panel 6500 or Beolink 7000.
