The Sanyo 6500 was one of the more advanced Beta's. The VCR has many features not found on many Sanyo models. For example there is a camera input socket and the ability of carrying out audio dubbing. It is also a front loader. The VTC 6500 also had a tape remaining facility similar in respects to the Sony SL-C9 but it took the form of an illuminated graph in the middle of the front panal.
