Now that LG is making oleds in 48. Do you think that we will get an updated Horizon?

I also have been waiting for that. I think it is just a matter of when.

I hope they do, because even though I gave up on my previous Horizon I really like the design. So a 48 Horizon with oled really might get me back into B&O.

You must have missed it, but a prominent UK dealer told me that B&O had prioritised a Horizon refresh as their top priority, aiming for September/October, so it could be very likely you'll see an updated panel soon.

Imagine if it got OLED, and a built in Stage fitted.

It would be great if the current Horizon panel could be replaced by the new one.

I don't think that's going to happen

Then it would be 2x as expensive! And require a complete new remodelling, redesign and months of factory tooling for a complete new model? Do people think things through?

My assumption would be a relatively straightforward panel update.

I would be quite happy with a simple panel switch. Oled picture and LG operating system.

I would sell my organs on the black market for this.  i have been completely in love with the Horizon from day 1. I would love to own one.  I would pay ridiculous amounts of money for it.

 

But not with an old LCD and 3rd-rate audio.

Maybe an Lg oled 48 with the Beosound stage on a nice stand is as close to a Horizon upgrade as we are going to get.
