Replacing the Beocord V3000, the Beocord V6000 was a hi-fi stereo video cassette recorder which could be used with Bang & Olufsen’s budget-range of televisions at the time, the Beovision MS6000 and the Beovision ME6000 although could be connected to any Beovision of the period - not just the basic models - and offered a similar on-screen menu system to that of its predecessor. It lacked some of the features that the more expensive VCR of the time possessed - namely the Beocord VX7000 - although the V6000 was able to record Teletext subtitles along with a TV programme, a facility lacking in the more expensive recorder.
Again manufactured by another large electrical company (this time Grundig) the V6000 offered hi-fi stereo sound and could be controlled via a Beolink 1000 terminal once the necessary connections had been made between Beovision and VCR via SCART.
Basic - and therefore very easy to use - the Beocord V6000 offered reasonable picture and sound quality, and like the V3000 before it, two presses on the RECORD button meant that the VCR’s electronics swung into action, detected which channel was being watched, and dutifully started recording.
Replaced by the Beocord V8000 similar styling was used on the newer model so that it would blend itself in with the DVD 1. The simplistic styling of the Beocord V8000 was then to last a number of years.
