The Beocord 6500 and 5500 were very similar, though the new numbering and choices of finish were required in order for it to match the rest of Beosystem 6500. The design evolved in detail along with its counterpart in the Beocenter 9500, therefore during the production run the cassette mechanism was changed to a simpler type with only one motor. This brought with it new software, and the opportunity was taken to make the operation of the auto reverse system slightly more logical. Text copyright © Beocentral.
