I believe it will have a separate price, around 9k.

Theoretically it can be used with other panels.

Whether dealers actually offer this pro-actively is a different thing.

Some non-promo photos and a few additional details: https://www.techradar.com/uk/reviews/bang-and-olufsen-beovision-harmony

Including: 

"AirPlay 2, Chromecast and Bluetooth connectivity are all included, and a portion of the dormant screen’s display will be dedicated to track metadata – unique to the Bang & Olufsen build of LG’s panel. "

Isn’t that the old Eclipse discussion once again - why should it be differentvthis time?

Can someone confirm this ?

That is a quote from the just linked article.

Of course it needs confirmation - will be interesting to see that in action....if so.

BEOVOX141:

There is a gap in the center... Smile

And yes you can emulate,- but it will never be as good as a single point!

It is a 3.0 system - just like previous BeoVisions.

And just like with these these the three channels can be added to one center channel, I’d assume.

There would be no point in building-in a ‘single point’ center speaker there.....this would force people to but front L/R speakers (like in the old days).

At first I thought the Hamony was too indulgent & ridiculous now I want one. Dammit B&O! Surprise. I thought the 50s were nuts then I ended up lusting over them then buying them 12 months later

They have a new Bronze Eclipse,50s & 18s which are stunning. This throws the whole EOL eclipse range in question as that is being released in April and would be surprised if they just release it for 6 months. Also what option do they have for 55 or 65 inch customers until the Harmony comes in theose sizes?

My dealer told me they are keeping the eclipse until further notice but some say its EOL so its not clear to me.

It may not be that different in the end I agree.

But the Eclipse discussion had no logic to it, nor did any dealer ever mention it to me as an option.

This time I think the non-Tv part will have a discrete list price, and there's a reason for that (I've been told the separate price)

From what I understand, the new EU energy efficiency directive encompasses standards that make selling a single unit such as the Eclipse, with a massive power output and a big panel, tough to comply.  I think this is an issue for all TV brands, not just B&O, but it is B&O that are the ones that tend to strap on a 400W speaker to a TV and sell it as one.

As such, the Harmony may well be sold as package (speakers and lifting mechanism + TV), but actually be listed as 2 separate parts. Whether customers will be actually be able to buy the speaker/lifting mechanism alone I don't know - depends on how it all fits together I guess. 

The dealers may well be happy to sell the non-TV part - if they are going to be selling standalone LG tv's anyway, what difference does it make to them? But that's a corporate decision I guess, so I dont know.

Anyway, that's the reason why there is a difference to the Eclipse non-situation I think.

Bit speculative I concede, but as we've seen, not all speculation is idle or misguided.

The Eclipse is EOL, see Roger's posts earlier, and ask your dealer if he is up to date.

Being EOL doesn't mean they stop selling it right away - it will probably hang around for another 6 months I would guess.

My Dealer told me the 77" Version is just the first Product, a 65" Beovision Harmony will follow ...

I hope so ...

I like it.

I like that it was launched at Milan design week.  

I do agree it is a little 70's but i think it was purposely designed like that.  If it was totally 70s the speakers would have covered the whole screen.  Obviously people in a certain age bracket will like it, and not like it - i think the younger generation will continue to use their phones anyway. 

But for people that have purchased the BL90s and BL50s, this is the TV for them.   Especially if it can be operated as a sound system with no screen on.  A few people have requested / discussed that B&O should launch a sound system where they can use it with 50/90. 

I wait in anticipation for the released specs, let's see what they reveal.

I didn’t see this coming. That’s quite a tv at 77”...

Anyone knows what OS this is running? While folks on this forum don’t seem to like it, android tv seems to be established as standard.

Can the speaker be used speaker-only in “closed” position. i’m still dreaming of a hybrid tv that works as audio speaker and then turns into a tv. Did B&O make this happen or do i need to look at a 77” black screen when listening to music?
