      Hope someone can suggest something…

      I’m about to dig out my old Beocenter 2200 (not used for the past 20+ years).

      I’d like to connect some speakers that are perhaps slimmer or more stylish than the originals (Beovox 25?).

      I don’t know the technical requirements but they don’t need to be more powerful than the originals.

      Any suggestions anyone? Many thanks.

        By slim do you mean less wide or less deep? If you want to preserve it as a B&O system, a pair of CX100’s are narrower and are quite stylish IMHO.  Remember, this unit has a built-in loudness contour in the volume control (which you can’t bypass without getting inside) so should not be paired with speakers that are bass heavy.

          Many thanks Mark.

          Just wondering – CX100s are 6 ohm, 2200 is 8 ohm; does this have any effect in practical terms?

            No, as the amp is rated at 25W into 4 ohms.
