MORE FROM 1988: Vintage Magnavox boomboxes, TVs, CD players & more tech from the ’80s
From November 1988
(sigh!) It does get monotonous having to tell people it’s really a Magnavox every time they see a Magnavox. Like with our innovative Video Camera and Stereo VCR Deck.
The Video Camera, a mere 2.4 lbs., fits into your hand. All you do to shoot is push a button. The camera is so sensitive you can shoot from the light of a birthday candle. The automatic focus guarantees crisp, clear pictures.
The portable Stereo VCR recorder, just 7 lbs. with battery, slips out of the docking tuner, connects to the camera and you’re ready to shoot with stereo sound. For TV use with total remote control, the recorder slips back into the docking tuner.
Incidentally, the Magnavox Stereo VCR allows the unattended recording of as many as 8 events during a 14-day period. Having read this much, you might think you’re reasonably equipped to recognize your next Magnavox. Sure.
Magnavox CD player with the Smothers Brothers (1987)
… no other CD player has come even close to equalling the overall performance of the Magnavox CDB650. Isn’t that just what you’d expect from the people who invented compact disc technology?
Smart: Magnavox 3″ LCD color TV (1988)
“It’s the finest pocket color TV we’ve ever tested… the set will give you a clear, sharp picture with remarkably good color.”
Very smart: Vintage Portable CD player boombox
What could be smarter than inventing digital CD technology? Making it this portable. The Magnavox D8890 Portable CD Player. So compact that high-quality CD sounds goes wherever you do.
Very, very smart: Videowriter word processor
Who else but Magnavox could design Videowriter, a word processor so smart it’s simple!
Brilliant: Vintage Magnavox big screen TV
Pure theater, large as life. It’s the new generation of Magnavox Big Screen Televisions. A major Magnavox breakthrough is the brightness — three times brighter than Ordinary TVs. (Ad features The Smothers Brothers.)
