The fact that the Beocord 1100 was equipped with Dolby B Noise Reduction system immediately placed it among the market's better cassette decks (catalogue 1977 / 78).

It had all the facilities you needed for recording compact cassettes and replaying them through an existing amplifier system. The combined record/playback head was made of Super Permalloy, an extremely durable material which ensured a long useful lifetime and had excellent magnetic properties. Other refinements included an electronic auto stop at end-of-tape and a switch for selecting between chromium dioxide and normal (ferric oxide) tapes.

The setting of correct recording levels was by way of individual controls used in conjunction with VU meters for left and right channels. Beocord 1101 was technically identical to Beocord 1100 but had a different exterior finish.
