Description

This model was a larger version of the original BeoVision Avant 28. Although the screen size appears to be very large, widescreen tube sizes cannot be easily be compared to standard ones, and a 32” widescreen set in fact offers a similar viewing area to a conventional 28” set. This made the BeoVision Avant 32 an ideal replacement for the Beosystem AV 9000, especially if the optional Pro-Logic or (later) Dolby Digital decoder was fitted. Other than the size, the set was very similar to the 28” BeoVision Avant. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
