BeoCord 2400 Cassette Deck

Large photo

Manufactured: 1981 - 1984
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Rosewood, Teak

This highly specified top-loading cassette deck closely matched Beomaster 2300 both in appearance and technical compatibility. But it was also worth serious consideration for use with any good hi-fi system, especially if ease-of-use was one of your demands.

Ferric, chrome and metal tapes could be used and the Dolby B noise reduction system kept your recordings clean and hiss-free. The large split-channel VU meters made it easy to set optimum recording levels using the input slider. The combined record/replay head was of long-life Sendust.

The 3-digit tape counter had a press-button reset; a memory function aided easy location of favourite tracks for repeat playing.

Piano-key controls separated all tape-transport functioned: these included a very precise pause control and a double-key record control - a safety check for preventing the accidental erasure of tapes.

Tape speed was highly accurate with deviation of less than +/- 1% and wow and flutter below +/- 0,15% DIN.

Beocord 2400 measured 40cm wide, 8cm high (11cm with cassette holder open) and 25cm deep. The slim cabinet was finished in either natural teak or rosewood.

At the 1969 Hanover Fair Bang & Olufsen and Jacob Jensen - designer of Beocord 2400 - were presented with the iF award for no less than 4 products for 'outstanding industrial design' including this sleek cassette recorder.
