BeoGram TX2

BeoGram Record Decks

Production: 1985 - 05/1991

Documents: Owners Manual, Schematic, Service Manual

Like the Beogram TX, Beogram TX2 was sold as a basic turntable. The record deck was a nice-looking item nevertheless and was bought by individuals who wanted more of choice as to what they were offered.  Beogram TX2 could thus be purchased with any of the MMC1 - an MMC5 range of cartridges, dependant on personal preference, as the deck was sold without one.

The record deck was based upon the Beogram 5005 and was withdrawn for sale after a five-year period, which was a good life span for any product in a continually changing world of technology.

Beogram TX2 (Type 5913) was manufactured specially for the North American market when it was fitted with a 110V built-in transformer (but no switching for any other electrical voltages).
