Description

The Pioneer PX-V60 is a MSX1 computer, aimed at the Japanese market. It was meant for attaching to a LaserDisc player, and as such has superimpose capabilities.

Compared to other Pioneer MSX1 computers, it lacks LaserDisc system control-in, RGB output, headphone out and the sliders for volume and mixing-level that the other Pioneer MSX machines feature.

It also has a completely different keyboard connector, the separate keyboard has the reference AAX-476. It was provided with a demo cassette.

The price of this model Is unknown, it was sold to the schools in Japan (like it was also the case for the LaserDisc players with a reference starting with LD-V).
