Description

A special version of the Beovision MX 4000 that was fitted with a built-in Masterlink interface. This special feature, unique amongst all sets that used this chassis, allowed simple and direct connection to a Masterlink multiroom system and allowed the set to form a complete link-room installation.

Despite being a very useful addition to the range, this set was easily overlooked as it was frequently listed in the “Beolink” section of the catalogue rather than with the rest of the televisions. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

The Masterlink interface unit was fairly bulky, so its installation required that the special back cover that was normally needed to install a Beosat LM receiver in the normal Beovision MX 4000 was used to house it. This of course meant that the Beosat LM could not be fitted to the Beovision MX 4002, and furthermore the 7-pin Audio-aux socket did not work, so was fitted with a blanking plug.
