Beovision MX1500

BeoVision

Production: 1988 - 05/1990

Designer: David Lewis

The Beovision MX1500 stands all alone as the only true portable television within Bang & Olufsen range. Similar to the rest of the MX range, the set was actually produced for B&O by Philips.

Unlike the rest of the range though, the Beovision MX1500 gave only mono sound through its 8 x 13cm oval loudspeaker which was very reasonable for the set’s size.

The Beolink 1000 terminal was offered for daily use and Datalink through its SCART socket allowed for connection to suitable Bang & Olufsen products such as a Beocord VHS82.2 video recorder. Other connections such as a games console could also be made, as well as a pair of earphones.

A contrast screen was offered and 35 TV channels could be stored on the set’s microprocessor. Teletext was available as a separate option.

This small television is highly sought after nowadays.
