Pioneer PX-7(BK)

The Pioneer PX-7 is an MSX1 computer, aimed at the Japanese market. It was meant for attaching to a Laserdisc player, and as such has Superimpose capabilities. The PSG sound is stereo, contrary to almost all MSX machines.

The PX-7 was available in black and in silver with lilac keyboard keys. This PX-7 is the PX-7(BK) which was released in the UK in black.

A graphic tablet (PX-TB7) was also sold with the Palcom PX-7. With this you could create illustrations, shapes and various backgrounds, then store up to 8 of these shapes with their respective animation programmes into the computer memory.

The LD-700 Laser Disc Player was also sold as an option. When linked to the Palcom PX-7, the computer could entirely control it and exchange information.

Pionner also sold the ER-101 interface (Laser Vision) unit which made it possible for all MSX computers to have the same functionalities as the Palcom PX-7.
