Description

A replacement for the Beomaster 1600K, comprising a Beomaster 901 set into a cabinet with two 4W loudspeakers. The loudspeakers included a resistor each to prevent possible damage by the 20W amplifier. Special loudspeaker sockets were fitted at the back, so that when external loudspeakers were connected one could either have the internal loudspeakers muted or connected as well. The Beomaster 800 was the last of the “mains radio” format models, this type of set was no longer popular by the mid 1970s, having been replaced by “unit audio” and mains powered portables (such as the Beolit 707).
