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*

Karel.

Lareny:

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.

My dealer said yes. The screen is basically on a VESA mount connected to the motorised stand. The only thing is that all the settings for the B&O stuff (speaker groups, roles, WISA,etc) are managed by an LG WebOS App which will be available only on certain models (the C9 as it stands now). In the future they will be able to limit which TV sets can be used with the Harmony by selectively enabling access to the app.

Is the TV connected to the speaker with an HDMI cable? If so, what are the actually usable HDMI ports, 3 or 4?

Thank....must be quite new.

You may have noticed that there is a port for a Stand....which in this case is not in use.

This might indicate that the same platform ‘could’ be used for another configuration of a speakers part and an LG-tv.....maybe sometime.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Yes, we need both a vertical and rotational movement at the same time! :)

Pricing for the 65" Harmony is announced at 13.500/14.500.

It reveals the flexibility of the product: the Soundheart and the stand are the same. Only the LG panel, panel adapter (100 euro) and the fronts are different (500 euro price difference between 65" and 77").

Makes the product very flexible when moving house etc.

Pricing is: 8.100 for Harmony, 540 for the wall/floor stand, 100 for panel adapter, 260 for BR1.

Fronts in wood: 2.000 for 65" and 2.500 for 77"

Fronts in cloth: 1.000 for 65" and 1.500 for 77"

We had ours setup last week. It was not easy to do, especially with the wall bracket.

Nice, I know those guys!

Michael has been to mine many many times!

Cant tell from the angle of the picture, but isn't the TV pretty high up?

Just a question, as I dont know the restrictions of the room.

Yes - it is slightly high up :) and just when it was put up I was a bit concerned - but it’s a very long room, about 18 meters, so actually it’s working out ok (or so I am telling myself :))

Michael is great :)

So does the Eclipse work in the same way that you can change the panel by yourself?
