BeoGram 1202 Record Deck

Manufactured: 1972 - 1974
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Rosewood, Teak,White

The Beogram 1202, although looking very similar to the earlier Beogram 1200, was an entirely new record deck and was far more sophisticated than the earlier model. It continued with the multi-peg system of record support - possibly the decks greatest weakness - and also lacked the hinged lid of the Beogram 3000 to which it was otherwise practically identical. This is the 1200 type deck to own!

The operating system was simplified from the 1200 though the same arm and motor were used. The suspension was however far better - imagine this deck as a Beogram 3000 with a silly platter and a less useful lid and you will not be far wrong. It is however the best of the 'peg platter' decks. Very collectible.
