BeoVision MX7000

BeoVision

Production: 1993 - 2002

Designer: David Lewis

Beovision MX7000 was Bang & Olufsen’s first television manufactured with active speakers. It was top of the range of the company’s television products up to when it was relaced by BeoVision MX8000 some nine years after it was first produced.

It enclosed four loudspeakers within its front-facing speaker section beneath the picture tube. Two woofers and two smaller dome tweeters were fitted in their specially-shaped cabinets. This allowed for an excellent range of sound from its onboard A2 / NICAM stereo decoder.  The same philosophy regarding sound was used in the company’s excellent BeoLab 8000 and BeoLab 6000 active loudspeakers. Two small green LEDs hidden beneath the dark grey speaker cloth showed the user when the set was in use.

Other than its quality sound system the television was identical to the BeoVision MX6000 in all respects.

Other facilities included: VisionClear, connections for Beolink®, headphones socket, optional module for satellite together with a choice of static and motorised stands.  The BeoCord VX7000 video recorder was produced especially for the BeoVision MX7000 when both the VCR and the television cabinet was available in a wide choice of pearlescent finishes:

Either the one-way Beolink 1000 or the Beolink 5000 two-way remote control could be used with the television upon its introduction.  However, its software was updated in 1995 allowing for (just) the use of the one-way Beo4 terminal.  Its Teletext was also also updated to allow for instant recall of pages.

Both the Beovision MX7000 MX6000 were replaced with Beovision MX8000.
