A replacement for the Beocenter 3600, and because an AM radio section had been added, the first B&O product to offer a really complete range of available sources. The cassette section was carried over practically unchanged except for the addition of a tape counter with a “memory” stop at “000”, whilst the receiver, based on the Beomaster 1500, benefited from the same improvements as the rest of the range. Beovox S 35 loudspeakers were a popular choice to complete the system, and this model proved really popular. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

The Beocenter 4600 was replaced by two models, the Beocenter 5000, which was hi-tech and upmarket, and the Beocenter 2000/2002, which was neither. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
