The Beolab Penta 2 was a development of the original Beolab Penta. Despite a thorough re-design, the basic principles and appearance remained the same, as did the power output of the Beolab 200 amplifier. The main reason for the changes was to include the new “Power link” connector, which is fully described, along with the Beolab 200, elsewhere. The other notable change was that the displays were altered, and now could display 12 alpha-numeric characters. A light sensor was also fitted, to dim the displays when the loudspeakers were used in subdued lighting conditions. A switch fitted under the amplifier set the displays to work from either and audio or video source, something made necessary as many of the Beovision TV sets of the day included a power link connector.

The Beolab Penta 2 continued the pattern set by the original Beolab Penta, in as much as it was popular despite its high asking price. The Beolab Penta 2 was replaced by the final model in this series, the Beolab Penta 3. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
