Beogram 6000 was another tangential, quadraphonic-enabled record deck which was designed to play back CD4-encoded discs. It had a built-in decoder (the CD4 Demodulator) which signalled this fact in red by way of an illuminated ‘CD4′ indicator display situated between the two speed dials. In order to do this, it used an exceptional MMC 6000 cartridge to assist decode the discs upon playback. However, the discrete 4-channel facility could be switched off if desired with normal stereo being played instaed.
It was identical to Beogram 6002 in looks, and two versions were manufactured: one with AC motor and another later model fitted with DC motor.
Beogram 6000 had a built in RIAA pre-amplifier. The record deck was included within New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Design Collection in 1975.
A whole host of awards was given to the record deck including the Italian Gold Sim in 1975.
