Beovision LE6000

Production: 1992 - 04/1995

Designer: David Lewis

The Beovision LE6000 was a 28″ colour TV receiver fitted with Teletext and a NICAM decoder for the reception of stereo broadcasts.

The set was an extremely basic form of the other TVs in the ‘L’ and  ’LX’ ranges.  Too basic, in fact, in that the TV was really a Philips TV in disguise, and one which had been rebadged with the B&O logo for sale by the company. The finish was one of the most disappointing that Bang & Olufsen has ever produced with only a cheap-looking black plastic moulded affair being offered for sale. With no evidence of any quality materials as such, other than the Beolink 1000 terminal which could control other products in the Bang & Olufsen range, the television was not replaced by Bang & Olufsen upon culmination of its market life.

A motorised base could not be used with this particular model although it was fitted with a glass contrast screen and a headphone socket.
