BeoGram 6000 (1981)

BeoGram Record Decks

Production: 1981 - 01/1983

Documents: Owners Manual

Following on from the Beogram 2402, the newer Beogram 6000 record player incorporated a very early form of Datalink connections which allowed for one-way data communication between Beomaster 6000 or Beomaster 8000 (Beomaster to Beogram). It was an elementary system; the only facility the user had by remote control was in starting and stopping the record deck. But in these early days, where remote control of a hi-fi system was still quite a novelty it was an effective way to impress the neighbors!

The Beogram 6000 - a cheaper and easier version of the Beogram 6006 - was replaced after about eighteen months or so by Beogram 6002 which also, by way of Datalink, was very similarly-equipped.
