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)
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 exact direct replacements for original Bang & Olufsen part numbers 8230040 (later 8230056), 8230026 (later 8230075).
