If space was limited in your home but you still wanted top-class sound reproduction from your hi-fi, Beocenter 5000 was the perfect answer. It offered high-technology performance from radio, records and cassettes, yet measured only 72 x 38 x 9,5cm. Each sound source could compete on merit with more expensive 'separates'. The three high-performance components were integrated together into a single unit to give the best of all possible worlds.

The 2 x 40 watts RMS amplifier meant high power with minimal distortion - less than 0,1% at full output. The automatic record deck had a low-mass, low-inertia tone arm carrying an MMC 20E pickup and a precision-built electronic servo drive system for perfect speed accuracy. The cassette recorder was capable of the highest performance levels as it included Dolby Noise Reduction circuits, metal tape facility, automatic ferric/chrome selection, Sendust tape head and 4-digit electronic tape counter. The radio covered Long, Medium and FM bands, with five pre-set stations offering instant, press-button tuning.

Beocenter 5000 offered the same musical facilities and powerful 2 x 40 watts RMS output as Beocenter 7002. The two models were identical in the matter of sound quality too, but only the Beocenter 7002 had Bang & Olufsen's very advanced timer-track location and remote control systems. The black anodised lid of its cassette compartment further differentiated Beocenter 5000 from the 7002.
