BeoCord 1100

BeoCord Reel to Reel

Production: 1967 - 1968

Designer: Jacob Jensen

The Beocord 1100 portable was the final model within this range of reel-to-reel tape recorders. Mechanically similar to both the Beocord 1500 de Luxe and the Beocord 2000 de Luxe, Beocord 11oo was as all-transistor 2-track machine fitted with mono recording/playback heads as well as a monophonic amplifier.

It was graced with an onboard loudspeaker, and the mono amplifier offered 10 watts maximum output (built-in speaker = 3W; extension speaker = 10W).  Recordings could be made either manually or by using an automatic level control.

Beocord 1100 came in its case complete with a locking lid and a carrying handle.
