Replacing both the Beocord VX4500 and VX5000 from the Bang & Olufsen VHS VCR range, the Beocord VX5500 was again a hi-fi stereo model offering either A2 or NICAM stereo decoders as well as Datalink for connecting to a suitable Beovision TV. It was a step down from the very comprehensive facilities by the previous VX5000 model lacking the digital effects found in its more expensive partner as well as the tape indexing system. Its on-screen menu had been redesigned too. However, it performed very well and was worthily positioned at the top of the (then) range of Bang & Olufsen video recorders.
Looking remarkably similar to the earlier VX5000 model it was sold in contrasting colours by which to complement the Beovision MX5500 when a Picture-in-Picture module could be bought as an optional extra to replace the previous model’s onboard digital effects.
The VX5500 was later superceded by the Beocord VX 7000.
