Documents: Service Manual

Manufactured for use within the Beosystem 3500, Beocord 3500 was technologically similar to Beocord 4500.  However, looks-wise, there was no competition, as Beocord 3500, as well as the rest of its Beosystem 3500 partners, shared a grey lid instead of the highly polished affair with which its successor was graced.

Technically, it possessed Dolby B, a Sendust recording head, and HX-Pro. It was connected via Datalink.
