BeoCord Compact cassette
Production: 1988 - 02/1994
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Beocord 4500 cassette recorder was a stereo cassette player who was designed to complement the overall look and technical characteristics of the Beosystem 4500. In its livery of black, white and a mass of polished steel it looked very modern and still does. Time has made no impact on its looks at all.
As well as Dolby B NR, the player featured HX-Pro and auto-reverse. It also became ’state of the art’ with its motorized polished lid which rose to attention at the touch of the sense-touch display.
The model replaced Beocord 3300.
