Lamp kit Beomaster 2000 & 3400


SKU: LK-003 Categories: ,


Complete set of correct incandescent lamps for the front panel. A total of 5 lamps of correct type and wattage to cover the ON, Stereo, dial pointer illumination and tuning indicators in the following Bang & Olufsen models:

Beomaster 2000 (Type 2801 only)
Beomaster 3400

To achieve equal illumination and lamp life it is adviceable to replace all lamps in one go.

These Beomasters were contructed for using lamps; The two tuning discriminator lamps form part of the AFC circuitry with their varying brightness, tuning close to – and around – FM stations. The discriminator circuit depends greatly on the lamps varying flow of current (light output) to function correctly.
Any unbalance from a bad/wrong lamp (or a LED) can cause unstability or even complete failure of the FM tuning circuits, often resulting in no reception at all.

These are not LEDs. This is the real thing.
A little soldering and basic electronic skills are required to replace the lamps.

This kit contains lamps that are direct replacements for original Bang & Olufsen part numbers 8230040 (later 8230056), 8230026 (later 8230075) though, for ease of fitting, a leaded lamp is used for the dial pointer rather than a socketed type.
