Zemmix[1] is a line of MSX-compatible video game consoles produced by South Korean electronics company Daewoo Electronics Co., Ltd. between 1985 and 1995. The consoles were not sold outside South Korea.


Console Models[edit]

All consoles were designed to broadcast standard NTSC, have low and high outputs for connecting to a TV and have a universal adapter for connection to the mains 120/230 volts.

The consoles also had a letter coming after the serial number. These letters indicated the color combination of the console. The key is as follows.

  • W - white and silver colors

For example, CPC 51W would be a white or silver Zemmix V (see below).
