Beocord 1100

(1967-1970) Mono tape recorder, 1⅞, 3¾, 7½ IPS speeds, Two track, 1x10W

Type number: 4203


This model was the last mono tape recorder in the B&O range. It used similar mechanicals to the Beocord 1500 De Luxe and 2000 De Luxe, but was only fitted with mono heads and amplifiers. Intended as a stand-alone recorder rather than as a tape deck, it included a built-in loudspeaker and 10W amplifier, though only 3W was available unless an external loudspeaker was used. The amplifier could be used independently from the tape deck for a record player or microphone, and included separate bass and treble controls. Recordings could be made either manually or by using the automatic level control, an advanced feature for the time, which strangely did not feature on the more expensive stereo models that employed similar mechanicals. For manual recording, a large clear meter was used to show the correct level, a considerably more accurate instrument than the “magic eye” indicator tubes found on other tape recorders.

The Beocord 1100 was much smaller that the other models in the range at the time, and so was easily portable. All models came with a carrying handle and a locking lid to protect the controls and tape. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
