Description

As Beosystem 6500 replaced the 5500 range, so the Beogram CD 6500 replaced the CD 5500. In truth, changes were few, confined mainly to new colours and finishes to match the rest of the system. Inside, the only noticeable revision was a new Philips optical deck, which in a somewhat retrograde step now used a conventional brush spindle motor, but though even though it was slightly noisier mechanically, overall performance did not seem to suffer.
