Hi all,

I'm torn between buying a LG CX 65" with a Stage and buying an Eclipse. I'd much rather have a Beovision Eclipse standing around with the possibilities it gives me, and I could even keep using my Beolab 3's.

My main problem is, that I don't really wanna buy and 'old' Oled panel and be stuck with HDMI 2.0.

I already own a Loewe Bild 4, a TV that has only caused trouble and disappointment, since I bought the damn thing, so I need an upgrade that can last me for many years to come and be better than the Loewe. I do own a PS4 and will indeed get a PS5 (maybe even an xbox) and own a AppleTV. Will also need to hook up my turntable.

A B&O store in Denmark told me, that a new-updated Eclipse would surface later this year, however, can I be sure, that it'll happen? And if so, with HDMI 2.1 and maybe even a new panel?

Will appreciate any thoughts on the subject.

Madness. I bought a GX 55” + Stage + BeoRemote and GX 65” + Stage + BeoRemote for less than an Eclipse 55”, even with a dealer discount 😞

Has it ever been any different? How much did you pay for your 65” Plasma Beovision over the equivalent Panasonic?

The 55 more expensive than the mk1

Only the 55? Why more expansive?

Which is great if you don't have any external speakers. But in my case I have 4 BL 18 and a BL 19. I guess I have to go the Eclipse/Harmony way in order to replace by BV11 but I'm happy to be proven wrong!

I'd happily buy an Eclipse if a) the v2 was ever released and/or b) the Eclipse v1 was reduced to a point where a 2017 panel TV was justifiable.

Neither of those options exist right now. Hence the decision above. Don't regret it either. Would prefer to have external speakers, but the quality of the TV, setup and price point more than justify the purchase. Oh and the fact that the GX is almost flush to the wall, too!

Yes it should be kept to the model 2 eclipse and speculations around that.

I guess it should be similar to the old one but with updates to maybe both how it is assembled and design. But who knows.

I am curious about it no matter what. And more generally I would prefer if they would make it more of a universal product that can be assembled in many ways. See it as a higher competence stage with puc and power link. Hopefully both digital power link as well as analog and wireless.

That product should be possible to buy with a stand, or hanging from the wall on its own with any screen. And in that way make many price ranges available.

Forget “any screen” it will only work with LG panels, any of the tv ideas, for a long time to come

Maybe. But stage DOES work with (almost) any tv but with different kinds of integration as a result.

I saw the GX in store the other day, it's really a marvel! I am renovating for the next 6/8 months so by the end hopefully I will have more choices about which equipment to get.

My biggest regret was....not going for the 77" GX

Why? The GX 65" looks much smaller than the previous BV12-65 (as that has a huge border) and realised, once the GX 65" was on the wall, I could have easily gone for the 77" - it's almost the footprint of BV12-65.

Will be interesting to see what they do with an Eclipse v2. I don't understand how they'll make it more expensive using an off-the-shelf CX though.

Fair point. But what if THAT is exactly what people would like to buy? (like I did) Given the price/perfomance positioning. Just wondering.
