B&O for sale: $100,000.00

I found this on eBay today. This has got to be the funniest eBay listing ever:

B&O LX 5500
$100,000.00! Hmm, last one I bought cost $20!

Bang & Olufsen Beovision LX 5500 & matching VCR. Stunning condition. 1992.

Funky!! Comes with digital reception box/beolink 1000

This was given to me by a friend that bought a plasma......  BORING!!!!!  B&O plasmas are stunning.  Their LCD's are not so good (everyone is entitled to their opinion, I have an Avant and I think the picture kills LCD - grab one secondhand if you can.  (The sound is STUNNING, basically the same as 2 beoalb 4000's, it's crazy that they are going so cheap now, why do you need a flat-screen unless you are wall mounting, mine is in a corner, so who cares??)

I absolutely LOVE it, but unfortunately enough televisions.  Stunning piece of functional design.

This thing was the Shite in its day.  The sound is absolutely stunning.   I watched the voice on it the other day on the white beauty. 
That Delta woman I tell you is a musical genius like Joel (pass the bucket.)  She has a nice soprano voice though.

You can connect your CD or iPhone or airport through it.  I have had my phone playing music through it.
I took the speaker covers off it and it has some meaty woofers and tweeters on each side.

It looks like something out of the ski lodge in 'The Shining'.  It looks CRAZAY!!!!  The design is just stunning.  One for all you retro freaks.

It would look stunning in a warehouse, or a hairdressing salon playing film clips etc.

I have had it set up at my place, and everyone comes in & comments or laughs or says WTF??  It really is a collectible piece.

Motorized stand & VCR (not sure how to use, I just hooked up the digital box & that's it.

Picture quality is great.  Tube is still excellent, as the person that gave it to me wasn't a big piglet couch potata that sat on the couch all day watching Judge Judy & dr Phil / County Practice & bold & the Beautiful etc).  That episode was in this sexyWhite Fang's vintage.  I think she has had a bit of surgery since then. 
........ Ridge..... "Close your eyes & blow"  ... Bit dodge.  That women looks like something from The Dark Crystal now.  I have never said that to anyone.  How upfront. 
All the young ones now probably say it 3 times a week on the first date after one sugar crap drink.  SHUDDER!!!!  Funny.....  Go JUDY!!  PSYCHO!!!  Episode about fake HOOTERS!!  PRHOOAAR!!!

Speaking of fake hooters -
It's a real shame how drugs and booze destroy people lives.  She was a bit of a fox in the early 90's, then went to absolute trailor park shite with her addictions and bizarre behavior.

Enough yapping & Judy Judy for now.  I'm off to watch Days of our lives......

If you are interested, feel welcome to make an offer.  I have no idea of value as it is a bit eccentric. 

The good old days...... (family)

I can deliver and set up for no expense (inner Melbourne.)

  1. I actually sent a message to that guy one Sunday morning. I was doing a little ebaying and the laughs I got from his work was so good I just had to thank him from me and my girlfriend.
    To which I received another long hilarious rant in reply.
    Its really worth messaging him to see what you might get back.
