There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Love the teaser, very exciting !

I doubt B&O will be back in the BeoSound business, but we can dream :-)

May be a stand alone speaker for TV ?

Indeed, it really is a nice puzzle.

Besides thanks to mm for this awesome post /picture ;-)

I suspect something like this:

„Magical movement“

Full article would be this one:

Hello,

I vote for this one as it would be a walk around for reintroducing the now lost curtain effect.

A mechanical curtain would bring back the iconic feature - without the need of developing specific TV embedded HW/SW - together with the B&O “magic” of the moving parts and the focus on the audio quality.

Basically B&O would “just” need to work mostly on the exteriors of an existing “stock” TV.

Minimal need of TV expertise, that they dropped, just concentrating in audio, aesthetics and manufacturing.

It is also time for some B&O statement concerning their repositioning in the TV market.

Now I am only wondering if there’s a future for a BeoRemote, a cornerstone in the B&O ecosystem.

Cheers! Smile

I do think people are overlooking the Beolit 40 reference!

Ban boring signatures!

So a modern version of a Beolit table radio using lamellas, with magical movement that opens from the middle? Perhaps it opens when it detects your hand approaching to reveal the controls inside?Big Smile

I would be surprised if it was a new Beosound, but that’s where my mind wanders.

I imagine its a wifi speaker, with multiple inputs. the panels open to possibly reveal a CD player(the missing link) as these days a CD player is handy, but not necessarily wanted in full view.

 

Small enough to sit on a small table and easy enough to be carried around

Rob - Danish AV:

So there is some sort of double movement, one sliding to the side and one tilting.

Concerning the BeoLit 40. it was the first product to be named beo xx. So this is more or less when everything startet. The new product seems to adapt on the orientation of the speaker grill. Maybe that’s all or they hope for the product to come to have a similar impact with which the brand is supposed to restart, gaining the importance of past days ;-)

Even though I do hope for a Beo-sound-center-ish product, I guess that it is rather likely to be a new Beovision (40?). Maybe

My guess is that I’m thinking BeoSound 2300 - 2500 - Ouverture re-hash??

Slated frets pull apart instead of glass doors to reveal what (expanded sound??). Unlikely to be physical media? Control panel? 

 

So far only see this as something nice looking but unnecessarily expensive with money in superfluous mechanisms that many do not want or to pay for traded against economy and sound quality. 

Having just pulled the trigger on a wad of Auralic products, I hope it’s not the mythical BeoSound 90?

Robin:

Well CB, you have challenged Peter Pan on this one :-) There are two reasons, why I think PP is wrong on this one.

Happy to be called out on this one, but I'm sure someone "in the know" (Roger?) said that that he expected the next B&O release to be a soundbar for other TVs? I'm also sure someone said their dealer claimed a soundbar was coming soon?

Can't see it being a new TV. We're still expecting larger versions of the Eclipse and they seem to be taking an eternity. Can't visualise a brand new TV so soon.

The letters O L U are mirrored ...

... in a glass door? But there is no gap in the "mirror"

... in a TV screen? Does it make any sense to hide a screen partially?

Do the lamellas cover a speaker like the BeoLab 18 0r 50?

Or do the lamellas cover something else which will only be revealed for putting stuff in it? A CD/BR-player?

I'm most references I've read it is called an "object" rather than a product. I do hope this doesn't mean that it's a one off!Erm..

If they are using wood, it's going to be a very very expensive soundbar. Remember, the average person spends no more than £1000 on their TV. I know people who think £500 is expensive. With that in mind, they aren't going to pay more than 2x their TV cost for improved audio.

Can't believe a B&O soundbar looking like the above preview would be less than £2500. It's one reason why the Eclipse is so expensive.
