Beovision 500 was a 17” monophonic TV and the very last of a line of TVs manufactured with valves, the forerunners of transistorized circuits.
The great sound delivered by the single speaker and there were extension sockets built in to accommodate both a tape recorder and an extension loudspeaker.
The treble and bass controls had to be set by a Bang & Olufsen appointed engineer.
