A lovely piece of iconic B&O design that will never date. Excellent build quality,as you would expect from B&O. Lots of variations of this center produced, with the 9300 being the last. The 9500 was the previous model and was actually better spec'd but the 9300 is newer and therefore,hopefully, more reliable. The cd mechanism was changed for the 9300 and is supposed to be faster. The internal amp for passive speakers is good but not its best feature, but is does also have connections for B&O active speakers which bypass the internal amp.. Beautiful glass touch panel to operate all the functions,no buttons at all. Get one with either the Beolink 1000 remote or the Beo4 remote. As with all B&O hifi you can probably buy better performing kit alot cheaper from other makes BUT none of it will have the wow factor that B&O seem to do so well.In built tape deck virtually unused these days but nice radio section.
