BeoGram 1100 Record Deck

Manufactured: 1976 - 1977
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Rosewood, Teak,White

The most basic of a new range of beograms, this model was amongst the first to use the new MMC range of cartridges.

In the case it used the bottom of the range MMC3000 and was designed to be partnered by systems such as the Beomaster 1100.

Much more slim and elegant than the 2000 that it replaced, it featured the triple leaf spring suspension that was a feature of all Beograms from that point onwards. As one of the earlier models in this range, the 1100 used a belt and idler wheel drive mechanism. This would be replaced in the later 02 models with a simple belt drive.

These decks are beautifully made and offer super sound quality for almost no money. Much easier to maintain than the tangential decks simply because they are very simple! Excellent isolation from external vibrations - strongly recommended - and they were when new by Hi-Fi Choice!

Author Notes:

Beoworld says: excellent entry level deck. The MMC3000 is a good sounding cartridge and effective suspension completes the package. However the slightly later models are easier to service and will cost no more - look for a 1902.
