The Beolab Penta 3 was the last model in this long running series of high-powered amplified loudspeakers. The changes between the Penta 2 and 3 were minimal, with only the display unit being altered. All other parts were unchanged, and performance was identical. The Beolab Penta 3 could be used and was occasionally seen with the AV 9000 surround-sound television and audio system, though to equip this set-up with 4 Pentas required colossal expenditure.

Beolab Penta suffered comparison with Beolab 8000, a new strikingly elegant loudspeaker using an “active” crossover system. This demonstrated the new direction for B&O loudspeaker design, and the Beolab 1, which replaced the Beolab Penta 3, was in many ways a larger Beolab 8000. Text copyright © Beocentral.
