the best.Which makes a MitsubishiTV well worth your consideration. An elegant example is this model CK-2582 25-inch diagonal measure Mitsubishi color console with full function wireless remote, state of the art random access tuning, and complete built-in cable reception capability. It features a cabinet made not of genuine oak-grain plastic, but of genuine oak-grain oak. It also features one of the two most important innovations in color television tubes ever: Diamond Vision:M (The other was the black matrix screen developed in the early 1970's.) UP TO 40% WIDER COLOR RANGE WITH DIAMOND VISION. Diamond Vision was developed initially to solve the problem of sun glare on our outdoor electronic score boards. Our solution was a special glass treatment that actually absorbs sun Conenional screen light rather than reflecting reflects mostambientligh it. Incorporated into our home picture tubes, it has the same effect on the sunlight or other ambient light you may have in absorbsmost ambient light. your TV viewing room. Further experimentation led to other treatments designed to filter out the undesirable light elements from those emitted by the phosphors of the picture tube itself. The result was not only a picture relatively unaffected by ambient light, but a dramatically improved picture overall. A picture with better,richer, truer colors. Blacker blacks. Bluer blues. Greener greens. Compared to the conventionalTV tube, the range of colors that can be repro duced is wider by 15% to 40%, depending on the amount of i True green Te ambient light pre- 0 i , sent.

So instead of the flat, homogenized picture you're used to, you get one thats more three dimensional. Speaking of which, there's yet another dimension to this Mitsubishi color console, one your ears will enjoy: Two separate amplifiers and speaker systems. Together they produce an exciting stereo effect even from regular mono tele vision transmissions. And they deliver the real thing from stereo video discs, stereo videocassettes, and (with our built in FM tuner) FM simulcasts. This broadened range of capabilities is not a difference you have to take our word for.You can see and hear it clearly in a side-by-side comparison at your Mitsubishi dealer. And there you will find that while you may never have the best of everything in this world, you can at least have the best of television.
