I need help and opinions deciding between these two BVs.

New to the BV offerings but I do have a BV 7-40 which is great.

Needing a larger screen I’m considering the 7-55 as from what I’ve read it’s up there with the best B&O has made.

However an Avant 55 mk1 is younger and offers easier integration to future additions.

Can anyone offer any help choosing or experiences you can share with these would be amazing

And it comes with a built in Blu-ray player. Does the Mk1 actually have the connections that allow it to play UHD tv? I remember at the time there was a big furore about HDMI specs etc.

Beosound Stage, Beovision 8-40, Beolit 20, Beosound Explore.

One thing which hasn't been mentioned yet is that you can buy TWO 7-55's for the price of one Avant 55....

Value for money wise, the 7-55 is incredible at the moment....

Just my 2 English Pennies!

Firsly , I have the Avant 55 v1 and can attest to its vdieo engine issue, which was fixed under warranty but would normally costs about 1K to fix.

 

The HDMI  issue was sorted in an update so that one socket will handle 4K, and i use outside boxes to stream the content. Very pleased with it.

 

The BV7 55 im sure has a good picture , but those big bezels place it as a TV design for the early part of year 2000 and it looks hopelessly big and dated in my view.

Thanks everyone for their inputs.

With your guidance I’ve decided  on and purchased an Avant 55 v1.

Got this from my local dealer Rob at Danish AV who also delivered it and set it up.

Super happy with it 😀

The large bezel frames the picture perfect, and gives a more cinematic look to movies.
