My upcoming foto-session is with the Commodore Amiga and B&O MS6000. Got Hybris on the Amiga running 60fps with a B&O MS6000, and it is just fantastic.. not to mention the wonderful 80 wat speakers.. lols... BLAST from the PAST ;)

It is all plug'n'play :)

The best home computer of the 1980's. Never seen picture quality like that though. Many hours of my youth spent playing on the A500! Thanks for your pictures

That's awesome! Thanks for sharing! 

Years ago I drove out to New Hampshire from Albany, NY to purchase a complete Beosystem 6500 I found on a classifieds ad. When I got to the gentleman's home, he said to me: "You drove all this way, do you also want to take with you this television?" he was offering me an MX4000 on a stand for free. I was floored. If I only had room in my car I would taken it right away.

Hi to all retro fans out there,

an AMIGA was THE personal comupter to have, if you want Sound and graphics (others had a "buzzer" and up to three colours at that time). So to combine AMIGA and B&O makes perfect sense to me.  

I had 11 of them until my wife found them ;-(

AMIGA rulez!

appreciated Aussie Michael. ;)

 

...and DocLeisure I concur, it really makes a lot of sense combining a classic CRT B&O TV with a Commodore Amiga. Also you seem to have a cruel wife.

 

Superior sound and picture meets a superior retro computer = a higher level of retro game-playing!!

 

The Legendary Commodore Amiga:

1. The legendary Amiga computer had superior graphics and sound and it still being praised around the world.

2. Easy to hook up with the 520 TV modulator and scart cable.

 

B&O TV and sound:

1. The B&O company is legendary within sound and TV equipment and has been for decades.

2. The MX/MS TV series is capable of great picture tweaking (service mode) and not to forget the fantastic and high volume sound. These TV's just beg to be parred with other legendary devices that can match it and bring out the best retro gaming experience.

3. Just plug'n'play with the scart cable to the B&O TV, it automatically adjust to the image and just pump up the volume on the remote.

 

...and it is like the retro games becoming alive again. ;)

Before I post (images) on the next parring match between Commodore Amiga running the legendary shooter Hybris and a B&O MS6000 TV set, I took these images from my MX4000 (in action at the top of the thread) from the inside, that is :)

WARNING High-voltage: Do not open your TV set, unless you really know what you are doing!!

 

Timeless and priceless design

Lots of plugs :)

Notice the almost "railtrack" train like "sliders" the mainboard rests on. Such a gem to work with, I would presume :)

 

A closer look at the "railtrack" train sliders. Talking about very effective building and when reparing the TV. Awesome!!

 

We just slide it back in there like a train on tracks ;)

 

 

 

Perfect soldering!

 

Reminds me of a piano ;)

Ever wonder why B&O is famed for their sound! Look at these speakers. Very well hidden and protected ;)

 

Reached easy 100 dB sound level on gaming and no errratic speaker-noise. Turning it higher and I will reach the dB level from a closeby airplane. :)

 

The worlds best CRT and sound TV for playing retro games!

This is brilliant, brings back a lot of memories for me as a kid 

Amiga 500, 600 and 1200. 

Lotus turbo challenge, altered beast, another world! Now that was a game. 

Do do you remember the demo disks that shows the capability of the sound card?? I remember one have bomb the bass on it!! Fantastic

Well, the Amiga had a soundchip which used 4 channels and thus allowed an effective and inexpensive way to record and play with digital sound samples and music etc.
Back then demo-disk of various sorts was very popular and I believe that the Bomb the Bass was from a game called Xenon 2 from Bitmap Brothers ;)
