Production: 1990 - 04/1992

A rebadged Beovision L5500, the Beovision LS5500 was a 28″ multi-standard colour television complete with NICAM sand A2 stereo modules. It was also fitted with Datalink and Power Link connectors for use with Beolab active loudspeakers.

A wide range of finishes was available for this TV and a contrast screen finished with a metallised coating ensured excellent viewing.

A full-range speaker system was included and the sound obtained was rich and warm.  The set was prepared for use with the Beosat LM satellite decoder.

A Beocord V3000 was the recommended VHS video recorder to be used for the recording and playback of TV programmes.

The television was subsequently replaced by the Beovision LS6000.
