Description

In essence this was a version of the Beomaster 4400 with a black fascia. It appeared in the service manual for the 4400 as a variant but is very rarely seen. Those models found by this site have all been labelled with a red prototype label. This gives rise to the thought that this model never made it to full production but existed only as a prototype with a small run of pre-production models made. Text copyright © Beocentral.

Whether this existed in tens or hundreds, it has all the attributes of the Beomaster 4400 with the added frisson of rarity. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
