    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.
