Have I missed something, or has this new TV already been discussed somewhere?

Ok, that looks much nicer with the wood front.

It looks far better than the Horizon!

Fansastic:

I wonder if the frame will be sold separately so we can benefit from a discounted LG panel through bulk suppliers

Also, does this mean the Stage is getting a wood fret?

More seriously though, can I take the 'spare' Stage I have here and use it with this frame and an a panel?

I'm surprised by its depth : as it's a Stage with a LG GX over it, I can't understand what's this big black box in the back : empty space just to hide cables?

That's the downside of a framed panel. However, I'd never put this on my wall. I'd have it on the stand, I think.

Indeed - they seem to be giving little thought to the wall mounters amongst us!

Perhaps we’re / I’m in a minority, but given how elegant products like the GX and wallpaper series look, it’s a bit unfortunate that such solutions/ looks are not really catered for by B&O

Pity it is a tv that makes it absolutely impossible to extend the investment with speakers or controlling external devices. The stage is really too limited.

Its a CX panel.

Correct!

I just bought a 55" GX and an Almando multiplay surround decoder (to run my lab3s and s14) and spent under 3000 and get a stunning modern (3cm thick on the wall) panel that looks beautiful and works with my existing B&O Speakers!

My dealer told me that the Contour does NOT use an off-the-shelf Stage.

ie. you can't buy a Contour frame and drop in an existing Stage. It used a slightly customised version. Explains the oak fret, too.

No you can't. Are you just assuming or have some knowledge? My dealer says this isn't possible.

They take the alu edge off and slide it in the frame, same for the panel. I've seen it yesterday. if this is ''custom'' then I guess yes, but it's literally the stage with out the alu frame and nothing else is different. Even the holes for the front cover are the same, inside it also has the two lights you see on the Stage.

I asked how to built the contour and that's what I was told and also could verify by seeing it Smile

The spec says the TV has 4 HDMI input. Will the Beoremote control them?

In theory you could using HDMI-CEC.
