Beovision 5502


Production: 1984 - 06/1987

Replacing the Beovision 5500 in 1984, Beovision 5502 was a 20″ colour television which delivered a good 14 watts of sound through a 8cm woofer and 5cm tweeter in its log line loudspeaker system.  The sound was mono. Teletext again was offered as an option as was the A/V interface.

It was one of a threesome: the Beovision 5502 had a 20″ screen, Beovision 7702 had a 22″ screen and the largest, the Beovision 8802 had a 26″ screen size.

Only superficially different from its predecessor, electronic tuning was installed for the first time which allowed the user to store up to 32 channels in its electronic memory.

Revamped slighly in its three year life, it became an excellent, reliable set; many examples are still in use today representing this high point in Bang & Olufsen engineering.

With stereo reception becoming more and more available in the late 1980s, Beovision 5502 was to become the very last monophonic 20″ TV produced by the company.
