Description

A larger version of the MX 3500 fitted with a 28” tube. Other than the larger screen the two models were technically very similar, with no major differences in chassis or software. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

The Beovision MX 5500 replaced the MX 5000 and was the first large-screen MX series set to be fitted with a proper B&O chassis. However, during the period of changeover some MX 5500-baged sets were released with MX 5000 internals, a non-ideal situation as the previous set was far less versatile. Text copyright © Beocentral.
