Documents: Service Manual

Beocord 1500 was a stereo cassette deck incorporating the Dolby B Noise reduction circuitry. Complementary to the Beosystem 1900 it was ideally placed within the market to offer quality performance at an economical price.  Visually, it was the two VU meters which stood out, as well as its black and aluminum finish together that of the real wood veneer which was available in a variety of finishes. A 3-digit tape counter helped you find your chosen track. Super Permalloy was again selected for the quality tape head.
