Description

The turntable for the Beosystem 6500 was based on the Beogram 5500, but was different in that the RIAA equalising amplifier was built into the turntable rather that into the Beomaster, meaning that the Beogram 6500 provided an equalised line-level output. This allowed cables up to 10 meters long to be used between the Beogram and the Beomaster, meaning that the two units could now be placed more flexibly. A wider range of standard colours and finishes were made available too, as was the case with the rest of Beosystem 6500. Beogram 6500 was replaced by Beogram 7000. Text copyright © Beocentral.
