Looks nice enough

Pretty expensive though compared to a normal 65 inch G series

The movement adapting to the required aspect ratio is cool though

LG was like, thanks B&O for the partnership lets see what we could do ourselves design-wise to what you do :) 

I like LG's thought here, many people don't like the black thing in their living room when switched off.

Truthfully, LG is huge, I'm not convinced there's much of a 'partnership' between the two brands. Or not from an LG perpsective.

I do quite like this, but doesn't bowl me over. I think the fabric part looks a little too big and the movement would start annoying me after a while. Occassionally I accidentally turn off my G1 using my BeoRemote One and turn it on again - almost instant. With this, you'd have to wait for the process to hide and reappear again. I think people who love this kind of stuff have far more patience than me! Big Smile

I absolutely agree, but I don't think I'm upset enough about a blank black screen to need one. As with the Harmony, I suspect it's more about impressing friends and neighbours than of any real benefit.

I assume there is a "park" mode, whereby you can power the TV on/off with the cover left in the extended position - this is where it will spend 99% of its life once the novelty has worn off.

Ban boring signatures!

As the owner of a Harmony 77 I can say that the nicest thing about it is that when it's turned off, the screen looks a lot more discrete.  When the TV is switched on it's huge - and really dominates the room.  Turned off, with the wooden covers over most of the screen, it looks a lot less garish.

I do like this LG - it's very smart. I do wonder if they'll start with wooden fronts, then they'll probably start stealing the potential Harmony buyers from B&O with the price difference.  That's not a good thing...

I also enjoy the function of the Harmony everyday.

It also seems much smaller as it goes down to the ground.

A 55" was max before in my room, now I have a 77" very nice indeed. (Off cause I could have a bigger than 55" but it looked horrible)

When off the 77'' Harmony is nearly 10cm lower than a 55'' bv11 or eclipse and that's very noticeable in my room and that's partially why I love it so much. It's huge when it's on..... Ladies WinkStick out tongue

I honestly think an LG TV with the possible price that will have, has no market.

Who purchased a Beovision does so because of the luxury feeling, that's not given just by the presence of integrated speakers, but also how they look and feel.

And yes in pictures this LG may look smart and nice, but I'm sure that in person it will be much different from the sound center of a Beovision.

Plus, who purchases a Beovision also does that because of the B&O ecosystem integration.

LG has no such thing, and even though they do also sell "hi-fi" systems, soundbars and speakers (lol), they have nothing in common with their TVs.

Beovisions are hard products to sell, but you sell them with design, craftmanship and history of the brand as part of the package and price.

An LG TV for $8500 ? The 65" Eclipse is roughly the same money but looks much better.

Yes, the 65" Harmony is twice the price of this LG, but it's 4x better.

 

Edit: not to mention LG ART90 has an 80W sound system, while a similarly priced Eclipse 450W.

Its an interesting topic.

 

Having just given up on my avant 55 due to the third video engine failure in as many years,i bought the eclipse.

I really miss the quality o fthe Avant in comparison, the perfect menus , the curtains, even the stand had a cast bracket to hold the screen in place. 

The eclipse by comparison has a piece of bend tin to balance the sound centre on; the VISA mount looks poor quality and the plastic covers fit poorly on the rear and i wonder although its  aversion 2 , if in fact even next years G2 will fit.

The picture is good because thats LG- its a pity that B*O could not even be bothered with optimising the picture settings - of getting rid of that awful 'life is good with LG' which is by a hidden menu.

All in all its  significant price for the ability to add additional speakers

Sorry, I am just not seeing the 'quality' and the 'design' in the products.

 

Great for B&O though. they must be making a huge margin on these products now.

I’d also be interested. Not much eco-system left with b&o and the LG will also support airplay, CC and maybe even spotifyconnect.

Curious to see it live as i also have some concerns that it may be a bit too plasticky in real life.

let’s see whether they start selling it outside korea.
