BeoCord Compact cassette

Production: 1981 - 08/1983

Beocord 1700 was designed to be used with the Beomaster 1700 receiver and was fitted with the ability to play all types of cassette tape: Ferric Oxide, Chrom Dioxid, and Metal.  Dolby NR was met as well as the trusted Sendust recording and playback head which gave it an exceptional life. A Peak LED programme meter allowed ease of tape and a microphone socket was fitted for home recording.

The cassette deck was identical to the Beocord 1600 but was finished in natural aluminum instead of Beocord 1600’s all black finish.
