The Beosystem 5500 was made up of the following components:
Beogram CD5500 (the earlier Beosystem 5500 was fitted with the Beogram CD50)
Master Control Panel MCP 5500
In place of the MCP 5500, either an A.Terminal or AV Terminal - and later a Beolink 1000 remote control handset could all be used.
Beosystem 5500 (as well as the Beosystem 5000, 6500 and 7000) could be accommodated on either the SM50or ST6500 purpose-built display stands.
