" The most beautiful television in the world "

The MX range was the first to bring the TV out into the open and it continues to show alternative ways of living with television. Beovision MX4000 was the little brother of the MX6000 having the same functions but with some minor differences when it came to sound and picture. The speaker was not a 2-way bass reflex as in the MX6000 but a 2-way Logline speaker.

Complete with a choice of colours, the specially-designed wall brackets of the MX 4000/4002 gave you the option of placing the MX on the wall. The placement options of the MX 4000/4002 also included a motorised stand with room for your VCR/DVD player.

The TV had a 51cm screen, the same features as MX 6000, but with conventional loudspeakers, optional wall bracket, available in pearlescent shades of: green, blue, red, grey, black or glossy white. With a Beovision MX 4002 as an extra TV in the bedroom, you could access the video and satellite options of the Avant in the living room or wake up to music from the radio and CD of the Ouverture or BeoSound 3000. Beovision MX4002 was replaced with the MX4200 in 2003.

Beovision MX 4000 was the smallest television of Bang & Olufsen televisions in the late 1990s and right up to 2003. It had a 51cm screen, and was equipped with the latest generation of the Black Line picture tube, contrast screen and VisionClear technology. Together they provided an optimum picture quality under any lighting conditions - even when faced with direct sunshine. In spite of their modest size, the log-line loudspeakers located under the screen gave full-tone stereo with great depth and amplitude. MX 4000 had both A2 and NICAM Stereo decoders and Teletext-functions.

Beovision MX 4000 was probably the most flexible television as far as placing was concerned. You could place it directly on a floor, and using the spring bar underneath the set you could tilt it in order to improve viewing angle. You could place the MX 4000 on the wall with an optional bracket, which also came as a motorised version. When on the wall, you could tilt the screen downwards, towards a bed, for example. Or you could of course place the TV on a stand on the floor, or on a stand on a table. Both stands were available in motorised versions and the floor-stand had an optional video-shelf available. The motorised stand was operated via the Beolink® remote control, that also operated the television and video (shown) as well as all B&O audio systems and light control units.

Beovision MX 4000 was a great addition to a multi-room Beolink® system, where it acted as one link itself and could play audio from the audio system that was located elsewhere in your home. And on the other hand, you could direct the sound from the television to the speakers of your audio system.

It had the same beautiful, sleek and modern design as all other Beovision televisions; the design of which has even been compared to sports cars!

MX Design

Filling a television with every conceivable gadget that technology offers is easy enough. What's more difficult is identifying what really improves the overall experience of watching TV and eliminating the things that don't. That's the philosophy behind the MX range. In both form and function, it's a clear-cut case of less being more.

Complete with a choice of 6 colours that included green and white, the specially-designed wall brackets of the MX 4000 gave you the option of placing your MX on the wall. The placement options of the MX 4000 also included a motorised stand with room for your VCR/DVD player. The TV was controlled by the provided Beo4 remote control.

Beolink® - Beovision MX 4002

Beovision MX 4002 was the Beolink® variation of the MX 4000. This model gave you numerous options when you were setting up your Beolink® system and needed an extra television in your bedroom, study or kitchen. The MX 4002 was available in the same colours as MX 4000 and had the same placement possibilities as well.

** Beovision 4000/4002 at the time of its introduction, was fitted with a plexi-glass (acrylic) screen. However, since the late 1990's, the model has a glass screen, the same as the rest of the model range.
