Soooo... last Friday there was an introduction event of the Harmony at my dealer's place.

Some pictures here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kuyttendaele/albums/72157709213805051

My remarks:

The set is BIIIIG... but at the same time it's a piece of art when in the OFF/sound modus. What I didn't know was that there's a small led light between the speakers that turned on when the speakers fold open or close :-)

Soundwise no complaints at all... Picture quality to notch on 4K HDR and the set does a pretty good job on turning standard 1024p stuff onto the big screen.

Pricewise... This set is more or less the same price as the BeoVision 5 (or 9) if I recall. So there is definitly a market for the set!

I was hesitant when I first saw the pictures online. But you have to see the set in real life to appreciate it. B&O have done a very good job in turning a standard LG screen into something special!

 

Afterwards received a nice bottle of B&O rum... Haven't tasted it though.. But it'll probably have some software faults *joke*

Regarding the sound Karel,

I was looking up the specs of Harmony and saw that they are 450W and the eclipse is also 450W

The speakers on the harmony look very tiny and not near as big as the ones on the eclipse.

Would you say, if you have heard an eclipse,is a harmony better or?

To me it seems all of the space of the butterfly effect of the harmony speakers is taken up by plastic rather than actual speakers.

Happy to hear your thoughts as you have heard it.

Thanks

M

I thought the same.

All that cosmetic real estate and so few small speakers. Now I’ve seen it if I owned one I don’t think I couldn’t keep thinking about it. Potty I know but still.

As it is a standard LG C9 the answer is yes.

I am curios how well it will work, personally I think I still would go for a Apple TV.

I believe only Samsung (18 and 19 models) will get the Apple TV app natively.

The announcement early in the year was that LG (and others) would get Airplay 2 and Homekit, but that Samsung would get Apple TV app plus Airplay 2.

At the time of the announcement, they said the Apple TV app would (may?) come to other TV brands in the future, but there is no firm commitment or date as far as I can see.

So no, the Harmony won't have the Apple TV app, at least not for quite a while I would suggest.

Good call Sandyb,

 

Forgot that there was a difference, so yea Apple TV it still you best bet, but it works really well with the Beoremote.

Cool, the software has clearly advanced! Still no footage of "Audio Mode"? I guess setup is the same for Stage + C9?

Curious when the BeoLiving-implementation is ready and what it looks like on screen!

So, the big question is will you in the future when 8K and eventually 16K screens are more available (and affordable) be possible to upgrade the current LG 4K screen with an 8k or 16k screen only, i.e. retain the B&O speakers/stand/controller but replace the screen?

Is the 4k driver components in the B&O part of the unit, or in the LG screen? I would assume in the screen, but with B&O you never know, they prefer to sell you a complete new unit rather than upgrade.

yes this will be possible, the B&O bit strips some of the audio out and does it's magic from there. In a few months 8k will be available. 16k is a bit dreamy though, next big step is 10k but that will be 2 years or so on LG's part for the first ones to appear.
