Beovision 601


Production: 1973 - 1977

Similarly-looking to its predecessor, Beovision 600, this newer model included minor updates to its tuner.

The last monochrome (trans)portable TV to be manufactured by Bang & Olufsen, it would not be until 1988 when another portable colour set - the Beovision MX1500 - would be released on to the market.
