Additional Details


The solid state Beocord 2000 is one of the most beautiful reel to reels I have ever seen.  There
were two detachable speakers that comprised the lid when transporting and a high quality amplifier with inputs for tuner, microphone, line and turntable.
Price when new was around UK £145.
“What a wonderful machine! It came in 4 versions: The standard, and the deluxe and both were available in a case with speakers in the lid, or in a cabinet of palisander with an acrylic lid, that fitted fine together with modern furniture. The speakers are really good and have a warmth in the sound that modern speakers don’t have. All the inputs can be mixed together with built-in 4 channel mixer. The recorder has multiplay, syncroplay, echo, and the motor can be turned of with the amplifier running. That makes it possible to use it as a HI-FI amplifier for radio or turntable.
