BeoSound 3200: the new music system with a warm welcome and cool intelligence
“BeoSound 3200 lights up in a soft glow of anticipation as soon as you reach out with your hand. Everything is out in the open so that you can see how it works and understand how it reacts”
BeoSound 3200, has a Hard Disk Drive with the capacity to store up to 396 compact discs. The CDs are stored in four groups of 99 and each group can be edited and named, in order to facilitate the easy location of your music. All other main functions are as the existing BeoSound 3000.
” Technology may be the foundation of the experience, but it should never get in the way of the senses. It’s the simple understanding that has created the concept behind BeoSound 3200.” It integrates a unique CD memory function that can store up to 396 of your favourite CDs in four individual groups. For simple and effective operation, each group is designated a colour that matches both the coloured buttons on the control panel and those on the optional Beo4 remote control you can choose to store an entire CD or just your favourite tracks and each entry can be named for easier recognition. Groups can be arranged according to type or be designated to different members of the family.
While the technology behind BeoSound 3200 is new, it retains a characteristic Bang & Olufsen personal feel. The glass doors slide open at a wave in an invitation to be used . Everything is upright and in the open, functions are clearly displayed and easy to understand. Even the simple act of placing a CD has been made part of the overall enjoyment.
BeoSound 3200 may be placed on a wall, positioned on a shelf or on the floor on a floor stand. When placed on a self or table, the system has a natural 13 degree slant for easier viewing and control. It may be used with any BeoLab loudspeaker enabling a number of impressive setup possibilities. It could be place between a pair of BeoLab 2500 active loudspeakers for example, or on matching stands with BeoLab 4000.
