Manufactured: 1983 - 1986
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Rosewood, Teak, White

This tangential-tracking record deck offered superb sound quality from records plus the assurance that its playing precision minimised groove wear and kept your albums 'like new' for a very long time.

Operation was totally automatic. Record size and speed were identified by a 'magic eye' (photodiode) carried on a detector arm which travelled ahead of the tone arm. Fast and slow scan (both inward and outward) facilities allowed you to locate and play inner tracks without touching the delicate arm or pick-up.

The pick-up was the MMC3 with an unframed elliptical diamond carried on a tapered tubular cantilever of aluminium. The total effective tip mass of this arm/pick-up combination was a mere 0,35mg - no wonder Beogram 6002 was so kind to your records!

The motor was a DC tacho-motor controlled by an electronic servo-circuit. Turntable drive was via flat belt. The turntable and its bearings were mounted on the same inner chassis as the tone arm, and this was totally isolated from the motor, deck plate and outer chassis by a sophisticated pendulum suspension system.

When connected to Beomaster 6000, Beogram 6002 had a one-way data-link which makes it controllable via the Beomaster's main controls or optional remote Terminal. Beogram 6002 could be used as part of a full stereo system - the Beosystem 6000 or 8000.

Author Notes:

This is an under rated deck. In many ways this can be seen as a Beogram 4004 with the design of a Beogram 6006. It is belt drive and much simpler than the equivalent Beogram 8000. As such it is actually rather reliable and performs very well. The one way Datalink is rather a cheap feature though.
