Beocord 1100 was an updated version of the Beocord 900 but with the added benefit of a built-in Dolby B Noise Reduction system which was quite unusual for the mid-1970s. It thus stood out from the crowd and featured pretty much everything at that time which the user required for recording on to compact cassettes and playing them back through a music system.
Features of Beocord 1100 included a Super Permalloy recording/playback head and an electronic auto-stop at the end of the tape. You could also use either Chrom Dioxid or normal (ferric oxide) tapes. Two VU meters allowed for a visual display of recording and playback levels for both left and right channels.
Looks-wise, it came with an anodized aluminum black fascia to complement (in a fashion) Beomaster 1100. Beocord 1100 was also recommended for use with Beocenter1800, Beocenter 3500, or as a second tape deck for Beocenter 1600.
