Description

From Danish collector Flemming Sorenson:

The Beocord 1500 de luxe was an upgraded version of the Beocord 1500 and it was launched together with the Beocord 2000 de luxe (in 1965). In fact it was intended as a cheaper alternative to the 2000 if you didn’t need
the amplifier and mixer. However, it wasn’t much of a success in Denmark  primarily because it was only about 20% cheaper than the impressive 2000 but without all the ‘goodies’.
