Following on from Bang & Olufsen’s very first remote controlled audio system, headed by the Beomaster 6000 from 1974, the company introduced its second audio system - the Beomaster 2400 / 2400.2 - once more complete with ultrasonic remote control. In the mid-1970s it was becoming more popular to own a TV set which was remote controlled, but the operation of a hi-fi through remote control was less often seen.
Very simple - compared to today’s more sophisticated handsets - the plastic-back of the Beomaster 2400 Commander (Beomaster Control Module) was able to control just eight functions including four radio stations and the starting and stopping of a turntable (the Beogram 2400, 2402 and 4004 could all be operated).
Lovely to look at and about the size of a small paperback book, aluminium rocker switchers allowed these simple commands to be carried out from a distance.
