Retro Styled Brionvega Alpha LCD DVD TV

Brionvega have just released their Alpha LCD TV, which comes complete with integral DVD player which boasts beautifully distinctive styling that manages to fuse modern design elements with a tantalising retro influence which the product site compares with the ‘decorative masterpieces of the Thirties: Le Corbusier, Breuer, Mies, Eileen Gray’.

The Alpha consists of two elements; the 19” 1280 x 1024 resolution LCD TV itself which is joined, courtesy of chrome tubular supports, to the base unit which houses the DVD player offering VCD, SVCD, DVD, CD-DA and MP3 format compatibility and which supports single and dual layer DVD, DVD-Rand DVD-RW discs.

The Brionvega Alpha also comes with a remote control and whilst hardly mind blowing from a technical perspective (this is far from HD capable, for instance) there’s no doubt that the design of the Alpha serves in its own right to distinguish this LCD DVD/TV combo from the masses of rather nondescript TV units out there – and, for that reason alone, to get overly hung-up on the somewhat lacklustre specifications would, we feel, be doing the Alpha a grave disservice.

That said, at around £1540 / €1950 a pop, perhaps the rather bland specifications may prove just a little too hard to put aside for those otherwise captivated by the Alpha’s jaw-dropping aesthetics.
