This comprises a control box, an IR receiver and a mains lead.

This allowed the connection of active BeoLab speakers which would then have independent control of volume and tone settings. Both audio and video sources could be selected and there was also the option of using the Beolink receiver to enable the Timer, alter the volume and enable play or initiate Stand By.

Mounting Options

STBbrackets, Bang & Olufsen's preferred supplier for brackets and stands, have made a re-issue of the wall bracket to the original Danish design. Distributed throughout the World by the Bang & Olufsen store network, the STB option adds to the diversity of mounting options and positions available.

External water resistant enclosure for the standard Bang & Olufsen IR receiver. The strong aesthetic design of this enclosure is complemented by the function of allowing manual selection of the four buttons on the BeoLink IR receiver.

This direct access feature allows the user to increase and decrease volume, activate the TIMER function and use the ON / OFF button. This allows users to control the basic functions without the need to use Beo6 remote control.
