The Beocord 2000K was a development of the Beocord Stereomaster. Although visually very similar, a number of important changes had been made to improve the quality and usefulness of the machine. Most of the printed panels had been redesigned around the newer and better transistors that were becoming available, though these panels were made interchangeable with the earlier types. Two new types of microphone amplifier were offered, both with transformer inputs. The two versions were for unbalanced and balanced microphones respectively, the latter being especially useful if long microphone leads were used. Text copyright © Beocentral.

An automatic stop device was added to the deck so that playback or recording was halted when the tape ran out. This was operated by conductive silver foil attached to the tape. In addition, an extra sensor, built into the entrance guide, stopped the machine if the tape broke and at the end of fast winding. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
A separate level control for multiple recording and echo, concentric with the balance control, was fitted too. This allowed the playback volume through the loudspeakers be adjusted independently from the “sound on sound” recording level. A new type of level meter that was easier to read was introduced too. Internally, the most important change was that the rewind idlers were replaced with a belt. This made it possible to offer a different sized motor pulley that could be used to make the machine suitable for 60Hz mains supplies. Text copyright © Beocentral.
