BeoCenter 2600

Large photo Small photo

Manufactured: 1978 - 1982
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Rosewood, Teak, Oak

Beocenter 2600 consisted of a 2 x 25 watts RMS AM/FM receiver and a hi-fi cassette deck. The radio section covered Long, Medium and FM wavebands. A red/green LED indicator made recording easy and accurate, whether your sound source was the radio or a microphone (not supplied) connected to the hidden socket. A separate record player could be added if required.

For the cassette section, you could use both ferric and chrome tapes. The Dolby B Noise Reduction circuits ensured clean, noise-free recordings every time and the Super-Permalloy tape head was hard wearing with a long service life.

Beocenter 2600 could be made up as part of the Beosystem 2600, when linked together with other compatible Bang & Olufsen products.
