      What is currently the best way to integrate passive speakers into a B&O Multiroom system? Now I have a BeoSound Core with several 8002 speakers. Now I want to add an additional room with passive speakers (must be outdoor). Do I need a second Core and a BeoAmp 2 for this? Is there any way to make it cheaper than buying these two devices that cost at least 2k€?

      You can opt also for a Core or Essense mkII or BLC (Beolink Converter NL/ML) and a MCL2P of Beolink Passive as amplifier for the passive speakers.

      the BLC, BL Passive, MCL2P are sold second hand regularly.

        So theoretically i can use this configuration to accomplish an additional multiroom with passive speakers?:

        BeoSound Essence MKII & MCL2P; connected via PowerLink

        or

        BeoLink Converter NL/ML & MCL2P; connected via PowerLink or MasterLink

        that should both work?

          Correct; MCL2P PowerLink connected to or Essence mkII or BLC.

          A BL Passive can also be used as amplifier (and a BL MCL/ML converter should also work as amp).

            Either of the 3 – MCL2P, MCL/ML Converter, Beolink Passive – will do.
            They are basicly the same, when it comes to acting as an amp.

            Do remember that they will need a fully wired/MK3 Powerlink cable in order to turn on/of.

              The Beoamp 2 can also be used.

              Just saw that it was already mentioned, sorry

                      A Passive (or MCL converter) can be used with either the ML or the Powerlink input.

                      If a Passive is used with its Powerlink input then the volume control must be done at the source.

                      If a Passive is used with an ML input (i.e as part of an ML system) then you should also add an IR eye and will then be able to control its volume independently.

                      Furthermore, if you use an MCL2P remember that this does not have an ML input.
