Small, compact and elegant, Beosystem 10 was the ideal companion when you were away from a main audio system.

It offered stereo radio with FM and AM/LW reception with three pre-set FM stations. The cassette recorder played every type of tape with the built-in stereo speakers providing excellent sound quality. There was also an optional wall bracket, and you could connect a turntable or extra cassette recorder, external speakers and Form 1 or Form 2 headphones.

Author Notes:

Japanese cassette radio. Very little B&O input and no Dolby. Very expensive for what was on offer and a very poor replacement for the Beolit range.
