"When they gave me the tape recorder last night, Dad put the microphone in my hand and looked at me very seriously and said that this was the future and that he and everything he represents was a dinosaur. I asked Mom what he meant and she said it was the eggnog."

Dale Cooper[src]

The Norelco B2000 was a reel-to-reel tape-playing recorder.

History[edit | edit source]

Dale Cooper was given a Norelco B2000 for Christmas 1967 and he began to use it to make notes of his everyday life. The recorder required the use of a power outlet, which limited Cooper's ability to travel with it until he purchased a battery pack from Simms' Hardware.[1]

Cooper used the Norelco B2000 until September 12, 1973, when his father gave him a notebook-sized recorder that recorded cassettes instead of reels.[1]
