BeoCenter 2 is an integrated and versatile audio and video system offering easy access to CD audio, AM/FM Radio and DVD video. The philosophy behind BeoCenter 2 is to provide a physically compact system offering total integration of picture and sound. The high degree of compactness has been achieved by separating the Master Unit, containing the operation and disc transport mechanism, from the Socket Unit. The Socket Unit (shown right) contains most of the electronics, as well as all external connections. This greatly helps the organising and concealment of the numerous cables needed in a typical A/V set-up. In BeoCenter 2 only a single thin cable, available in 1.8, 3, 5 and 10 metre lengths, connects the Master Unit to the Socket Unit. A 1.8 metre cable is delivered as standard.

The Socket Unit is fitted with MasterLink, RGB, PowerLink, power connections and other connectors so that you may connect a pair of BeoLab active speakers or link it to a home cinema system.
A great advantage of the compactness and relative lightness of the BeoCenter 2 Master Unit is great flexibility in placement. It can be wall mounted, attached to a dedicated floor or table stand, or simply placed on a table or shelf.
BeoCenter 2's two sliding aluminium doors were a challenge to Bang & Olufsen. Both doors are cut from the same piece of aluminium, but only after the front has been polished in the oval shape that follows the lower edge of the display. This ensures that all details in the polishing are echoed on both doors. Both these sliding doors stay together throughout the complicated process of milling and the two surface treatments. So the doors on the final product match perfectly.
The precision requirements Bang & Olufsen sets for the visual appearance of the product mean that the machine which grinds the edges of the doors works to very small tolerances. For every 1/100 millimetre along the edge, the machine calculates and self-corrects to ensure a perfect oval shape.
BeoLab 3 is a compact loud speaker in high aluminum gloss with exceptional sound performance and unsurpassed flexibility. The continuing success of BeoLab 3 is a testament to the pioneering audio technology that still shapes the way Bang and Olufsen create pure sound experiences. BeoLab 3 emits audio a full 180 degrees from the acoustic lens. The result is a clear and accurate sound image no matter where you place yourself in relation to the speaker. The speakers are distinctively designed and beautifully finished, approximately 9 X 9 inches and includes an aluminium floor stand. With the approx. 33-inch tall stand, the speakers can be placed anywhere in the room to either emphasize their modern design or to blend discretely into the surroundings. They can be removed from the stand and mounted on the wall, put on a shelf or placed in a bookcase.
