Brionvega Alpha - stylish retro TV now available to buy
A year ago, we featured a concept TV from Brionvega - the Brionvega Alpha - loving the style, but slightly aggrieved that the TV was just a concept. Well, guess what? You can now order the TV directly from the company.
Described as 'the new generation of Brionvega', it has a design based on the modernist classics of Le Corbusier and Breuer, featuring a 19-inch LCD screen sat within a chrome screen, a built-in DVD player (with audio playback option) and a chunky die-cast aluminium remote control every bit as stylish as the TV.
But there are downsides. Firstly, the TV has dated since its first showing - it isn't HD-ready, but there is an option to get a digital tuner built in for extra cash. Take your pick from silver, black or the orange, with prices starting at 1,950 Euros, which is around £1,540.
