I am about ready to upgrade my 20s to 50s. Unfortunately I do not have a dealer near enough to me to listen before buying. I have heard the 90s. I know the 50s will not perform as the 90s. But I did want to ask anybody who is familiar with both, how does the imaging of the 50s compare to that of the 90s?

The metal grill version is a touch on the aggressive side for my taste ( and that is also influenced by the female in my life) but the silver is to die for.

Obviously, it depends on taste and furnishing but here are mine and I an going the add the smoked oak to the front of the TV next week.

The sound is fabulous :-)

I am just about ready to say yes and order a pair. I am concerned that the wall they would be on might be too short. I have a BV7-55 and to the right of it a Beosystem 1 cabinet with BlueRay, Sat box etc in it. There is only 25 inches between the tv and the cabinet. With the Beolab 50s being 18 inches wide, that makes for a very tight fit.

I would consider waiting a while for any new color combos that might come this year. I find the regular one a bit much and the one with the black star net a bit cooler. An even more subtle or cooler color combo would fit even better. So many different materials on the Bl 50 standard. But I guess one gets used to it.

Beolab 50, Beolab 20, Beolab 8000 x 2, Beolab 4000 x 2, 
BeoSound Core, BeoSound 9000, BeoSound Century, 
BeoLit 15, BeoPlay A1, BeoPlay P2, BeoPlay H9i, BeoPlay H6, EarSet 3i, 
BeoVision Avant 55, BeoPlay V1-40, 
BeoCom 6000 and so much else :)

Beautiful picture and beautiful system!   Am I viewing the picture correctly?  Silver speakers with the bronze tone edition fabric?

Looking more closely at pictures, it appears the fabric covers go right up to the metal part of the speakers. The metal grill appears to have a gap between the small squares and the metal of the speaker, I am sure necessitated by the design. However, if that area surrounding the metal squares is black, I am beginning to think the metal front would not look good on the silver speakers.

MaxH. Drop dead gorgeous. Stunning. This would be the one I would go for. The pale cloth and aluminium blend so well. Drool.

Agree about the setting and the speakers. A different, yet well matched and consistent color scheme. However for the the first time ever I think the "Beovision" is intruding and somewhat disturbing the tranquility of the room. Usually they blend in anywhere. Perhaps its the dominant black underlining the vastly different design expressions between the BL50 and the Eclipse,- which I honestly never really noticed before. A  BV-12 might be the perfect match here ?

I loved the how the 50s looked when I first saw the picture. The more I look at, the more I like it. The fabric appears to have slight color variations. That is very cool. Absoultely beautiful

I don't know what the material is called but in the photo it does make the silver look a little like the bronze.

I will see if I can post more pictures but the process is not exactly easy :-(

Agreed about the black - that's why I am getting the oak cover on the TV which matches the side panels and the 18's which are wall-mounted back speakers.
