Beovision 6000 was a luxurious and beautiful-looking piece of furniture containing a 26″ colour TV receiver. Finished in rich, natural wooden veneers, the user slid a front-facing door along its tracks to gain access to the TV. The set came with its own ultrasonic remote control handset, the first in the Bang & Olufsen colour TV range to do so. The Beosystem 6000 music centre, headed by its quadraphonic sound receiver, Beomaster 6000 was on sale at the same time which too came with its own ultrasonic remote control facility.
The TV set’s remote control permitted the user to store eight pre-selected channels and summon them immediately upon pressing one of the tactile buttons. Likewise volume, colour intensity and brightness could also be changed. A stand-by button was also incorporated on the handset.
Replacing the former Beovision 3400 this new TV was a reliable, good-looking piece of work and was a new breed of TV receivers for the company. An Automatic Cut-off Circuit was included which monitored displayed colours fifty times a second and on-board sound was rated at a very reasonable 6,5 watts. Separate controls allowed the user to change bass and treble levels and there were connections made for linking to an extension loudspeaker. Within the unit was also a socket for a pair of headphones. A module for Teletext could also be incorporated.
Beovision 6000 was subsequently replaced by the equally-successful Beovision 6002 using a more slimline 20AX tube in 1978.
