Aussie Michael:

I dont get how it works lol (i do get that you press buttons lol) 

Does it work with all NL products?  How did you program it?  Is this something that you need a NL Gateway? 

Thanks in advance 

The keypad directly selects the source on NL products -- both NL sources and ML sources (via a BeoLink Converter). You program it via BLGW to map commands to the buttons. The engraving is backlit and can be seen in the dark. Useful to select a specific source instead of blindly trying to find a source on the product or via the Essence remote.

That looks like the Apple 30-pin to Lightning adapter, if it's what you're asking.

Ryan,

Delightful house, interesting all-round design, very modern, VERY 90's.

However, as a Floridian, one glaring drawback I see is the misguided use of grass surrounding the swimming pool. Bagged or mulched (either way) grass blades are going to end up in the pool. Plus grass is now especially nice to walk on when wet.

The ceiling to floor windows are "interesting." Privacy is a lost issue and insulation could be a problem..... but I like it anyway.

Besides anyone who could afford that house is probably not all that concerned vis-a-vis their electric bill.

Thanks Piaf! The first 2000 I had was such a surprise sound wise - it was connected to a pair of 3702s and it sounded amazing! Seems to be regarded as an unsung hero from what I've read!

Anyone can go out and buy new B&O, take photos and post but this one took quite an amount of elbow-grease.
It was granted despite a few battle-scars, - all part of its history.
I like.
And definitely worth showing!

The remaining is just electronics.

And it will end up sounding good.
Beomaster 2000 is one of my all-time favourites, not only because of the design, also because the engineers
at B&O managed to get so much warm and powerful sound out of what is basically a very simple circuit.

Well done so far.

Very kind words Martin Smile For me the vintage products have so much 'character' and as much I'd be excited by a pair of Beolab 90s I think the older products that have already lived a life have so much still to offer.

And now, as you said, it's just the electronics! I may have to box it up and send it to you to do a proper job on it! Big Smile
