B&O loudspeakers will meet very exacting conditions as their specifications exceed international hi-fi standards. All B&O speakers are of the pressure-chamber type with an impedance of 4 ohms. They are available in matched pairs only in a choice of teak or Brazilian rosewood finish


Beovox 2200

Only being available for two years, these small bookshelf speakers

are not that well known. With their old style cone tweeter but a modern small size, they can be considered a link between the 1960s and 70s. The small power handling capacity probably was to be blamed for their demise though, as most receivers introduced in the early '70s already well exceeded the rated power.

These aren't the speakers to use at a party, but at moderate volume they produce a very pleasing warm sound especially with acoustic music. The cone tweeter however makes them highly directional, so they are best used in set-ups where you can direct them straight at the preferred listening position.

Beovox 2200 bass drivers have rubber roll edges, so there is no need to worry about foam rot. If the speakers sound fine with all drivers working, they should be a safe buy even without further investigation. The frets, constructed on a wood/metal frame, are however easy to carefully pry off for inspection.

These speakers blend very well on a bookshelf, taking only a little bit more space than, say, a CX100 - and a small, golden old style B&O emblem on the fret accentuates the look. Highly recommended

to complete a vintage set-up with a contemporary Beomaster 900M, for example.
