If you want superior sound, but not the size, and a full array
of functions but without the complication - then take a look at the
BeoSound Century. Designed by David Lewis,
it has a very slim depth and brings together CD, tape and FM radio into
a slim-line form that can stand by itself or hang from a wall.
Everything is operated by buttons that light up to guide you quickly
through the various playing options.
BeoSound Century is a clever combination of excellent performance and
ease-of-use. This system is known in fact by two different names -
BeoSound Century in Europe and BeoSound 2000 in North America. With
everything built in, this is the perfect stereo for those who with a
limited space as it's only 11cm deep. It's for those who don't want
Beolink® capabilities and can be equipped with a handle with a built-in
active antenna making it very portable. The speakers use the active
construction as that of all BeoLab speakers. In the late nineties the
Century was released in a special limited series with polished aluminium
instead of the black plastic on the CD holder. This became so popular
that it became the standard! There are two different stands available: a
wall stand and a special table stand. The unit may also be controlled
by the optional Beo4 remote control.
BeoSound Century integrates a powerful sound reproduction system: two
active loudspeakers with electronic crossover network and Adaptive Bass
Linearisation, for the optimum relationship between bass reproduction
and sound pressure level. The very small two-way bass reflex
loudspeakers comprise a net volume of only 1,1 litres, but the large
front grille gives room for fairly large woofer membrane diameters.
Bass and treble have separate power amplifiers, which means that they
can be tailored to compensate for one another's shortcomings and
deliver a sound spectrum as close to reality as possible. On top of
that, BeoSound Century can play at high volume, but cuts out before it
has an opportunity to burn out its units.
BeoSound Century was awarded the Danish Design Centre's IP Prize in 1994.
