MCL 2P was a Bang & Olufsen power amplifier made up of a unit offering 2 x 30 W per channel. It was an extremely useful apparatus and over its lifetime many were sold.  Its function was to work in conjunction with MCL2AV in providing an around-the-house sound system where local source capability and independent volume control of passive loudspeakers was desired.  It thus saved the customer from having to purchase active speakers or additional music centres to be used in another room as this device powered any passive (i.e. non-amplified) loudspeaker that was able to handle its power output.

It could be linked to an existing Bang & Olufsen music centre via Power Link connections and hidden away in another room.

It was replaced a few years later by the ML/MCL Converter.

MCL2P was supplied with a 2,5m Power Link cable and a 2,5m DC cable for connection to the MCL 2AV. There was also a useful wall-mounting kit supplied.
