No, that's not a RIAA.  The RIAA just files lawsuits. Stick out tongue What that is, is a Pro-Ject Tube Box S2 phono preamplifier. (MSRP USD 399.)

Oooohh -- the Harmony is in the middle of powering up... Hope your default speaker group doesn't include the 50's!  Otherwise -- torque test!!!  Cats riding Roombas, etc.  Willie keeps saying he'll send you coasters; how about those new chafing dish pads?Wink

Beosound Stage mounted on BV 7-40 motorised floor stand together with LG C9 65" and Beoremote One integration.

Looks really nice for 5K EUR including all parts and installation.

Is the function of the motorized stand to be reactivated somehow?

Thank you all. :)

Few quick comments and reflections after one afternoon/evening of using it. LG C9 is a great TV but for my taste needs a bit of adjustment of tint, brightness etc (this is individual, obviously). Also, my first OLED so I need to get used to the fact it does not shine so brightly like a LED panel.

Beosound Stage looks really fantastic with the BV stand, it is powerful enough to fill in a living room much bigger than mine (35m2). I did not yet manage to watch a movie with Dolby Atmos but few demos I tried sound like it can produce a good enoughh surround effect for me to be completely satisfied. For music playback I changed some settings in the app as it did sound a bit muffled to me at the default. Might be that part of it is due to the fact that it is mounted relatively low relative to the ear level when you walk around the room. Now it is good.

The stand rotates only manually, but it does not require too much force to be moved so that works for me too. Overall the whole setup feels very solid - obviously not as nice as the Eclipse or Harmony, but that is okay as you need to accept couple of compromises for a price difference. Beoremote One integration is really cool, easy to start music without TV being turned on so that Stage can act also as a sound system when you don't watch the TV.

As a summary: if I had 13.500 EUR to spend on a TV I would not regret buying the 65" Harmony. But I did not, and so I am more than pleased with what I have. From what I know today, it should be reasonably future-proof and it looks decent. One more photo to put it into a visual context.

Hi,

I can fully agree, it looks very good. I have mounted my system on the wall and I am very satisfied. in the music field I lack clarity and delicacy. Therefore my 18s including beosound core remain for music. I had previously integrated the 18s via WiSa.

LG and Beosound stage are a great setup and I really like the integration of the Beoremote

Once again ....... it looks really good and the rest of the room looks very stylish.

I wonder if B&O or STB would think about a simple stand option along these lines?

I don't want to hijack the thread but I've always wondered: is it ok to move the stand manually when it is connected to the TV? Like when accidentally pushing it when cleaning?

Very nice integration: makes me think to a Loewe set. Beautiful.

Sure thing: I bought the VESA adapter for BV 7-40 stand from STB Brackets: https://www.stbbrackets.co.uk/en-GB/products/VESA-non-Bang-and-Olufsen-TV

Actually there I bought the Beosound Stage bracket too.

That's a very good and relevant question actually. So I did move it only twice so far - I feel that the STB Brackets' VESA mount is holding the panel really well so I don't believe it should be a problem - but at the same time I do it very gently and carefully, start with a tiny bit of force just to get things moving.

Also the BV7 stand is moving smoothly, did not need to make a very strong push. But I would absolutely advise moderation and being gentle... ...this is in the end more of a "once-in-a-while" kind of solution rather than "three-times-daily". For the real thing you'd need the real Beovision.

I should have been more clear: I was meaning "to manually turn the stand when regularly connected to a regular Beovision, which mean motor is "clutched" and under power. Hence the hijack warning Embarrassed

But to answer to your answer, I've got a a TV on a rotating stand and I move it often, pushing or pulling the TV by its corner. So far I've not managed to make my TV curved Big Smile. I just check the lubrication once a year and of course move it with caution.
