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?

From what has been written about it so far, the answer appears to be yes....you can use it as audio only in the closed position with metadata displayed on the visible portion of the screen. There is an article mentioning this feature a few posts back in this thread.

Aussie Michael:

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.  

Exactly.it will perfectly suit BL 90/50 owners,and look great combo.Probably the best money can buy.And I do not see Harmony matching any other b&o speakers.On the other hand,how many middle class can go full monty?

Not a fan of lamellas - at all - but I’m getting converted by this bold design. It’s especially appealing when wall mounted, though that raises questions.

Where is the location of the motion mechanism? When wall mounted, does the screen remain fixed on the ‘z’ axis? Or does it rise/lower as it does when floor standing?

If the latter, how high does it move? What is the effect on sight line when the set is raised by, say, 10 to 12 inches?

To be continued, for certain.

I like the design from the front but, if you look at the techradar article, the back is a monstrosity. The mounting stand mechanism is super thick and literally just hacked onto a C9. It would of at least been nice if they had taken the Eclipse approach and gone for more of a consistent look at the back.

Given the recent company troubles, I really dont see the logic in releasing anything over 65" as its quite clear that the super high end market strategy is not working for them.

Generally speaking though, I hope they release more than a standard soundbar in the coming months and more an integration hub but lets see.

It is a 3.0 system - just like previous BeoVisions.

Remind me, which ones? Apart from your Avant, I would argue they were 2.0.

Edit: Beovision 9 did have a centre.

Nice... but can it crack a wallnut? Somebody needs to buy one so we can find out.

This is a stylish and aesthetic successor to Madame Guillotine.

Yet again, the Scandinavians show us all how it should be done, with the perfect juxtaposition of form and function.

Anna Karenina would have chose the BeoVision Harmony.

Same es the Eclipse,

3.0 system,

If you use the AR app, you can see the TV without fret.

And yes the center is not completely center off cause.

That is what happens, when you don’t see the Eclipse as a BeoVision!

3.0 is definitely the way to go for a tv speaker - and the option to turn this into a center speaker, when connecting further multichannel speakers is mandatory.....imo.

The previous (audio processing) system could not do that and needed a dedicated center speaker (and added costs for L/R speakers to the package) - the current can.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

AdamS:

I'll reserve judgement until I see it in the flesh but it looks clumsy in the pictures, and I can't help feeling the speaker movement is just design for design's sake. I suspect David Lewis would not have approved...

I've just watched the video of it in operation and I can feel myself thawing towards it already - I hate myself!!

Interestingly Mrs. S likes it in its 'operating' position, but thinks it looks daft in its standby mode.

To my eyes, it looks stunning and has the B&O magic.

It will look even more impressive in the flesh which is dangerous as I will want it and need to find the money.

Creates desire, a strong desire.

Let’s hope the operating system is excellent and bug free.

Here we go again, You cannot substitute a dedicated centre speaker no matter how much DSP power you throw at it. It is down to physics.

Will they be releasing this in a 55 inch version and when will this be? I take it the orbital rotation is gone?

Having now looked at the TV again, the back does look like allot is going on and probaby looks better wall mounted so addting a motorised stand would have made it unweidly.

Maybe it’s a giant iPod touch in the hiding

seethroughyou:
and has the B&O magic

I'd like to ask a genuine question.

To me and my little knowledge of the brand, each B&O "magic" movement was a match between what I would call "poetry" and purpose:
-The magic doors protect the tape heads from dust,
-The video curtains are used to adjust the TV to the lighting environment,
-Some other doors (beosound 4 or beocenter 2, Beovision Avant…) serves to hide not-so-beautiful parts.

I dont see the purpose of these speakers movements, appart from being the source of future problems (mechanicals, screen dents).
It seem just like a gadget.
