DMacri:
I think I’d prefer an updated Beolab 7.4 with matching lamella to the Beolab 18 on the front.

Or how about a 55" on floor Stand ? - It looks like something we know. Smile

The point of a center channel speaker is to anchor the dialogue to the screen for all viewers. This is best handled by a single point source, not a stereo speaker, or a speaker with a wide horizontal spread of the drivers. So in my thinking, a more concentrated source would be a better choice than a stereo speaker or vertical speaker laying on its side.

The Beolab 7.1 and 7.2 should be considered great stereo soundbars, but not proper center channel speakers. Maybe that’s just my narrow view. Stick out tongue

I understand it can be converted to a summed mono signal, but the fact is you have two speakers separated by about a meter that are playing the same signal. There will be some “smearing” of the sound caused by the distance related delay from that separation that wouldn’t happen if you had a single mono speaker. I just think it would perform better.

@ DMacri

Yes - So until it becomes necessary to change the center speaker, we enjoy the sound of our BeoLab 7- 4.

My BeoLab 7- 4 has now delivered sound from my TV without problems, everyday for 10 years.

BL 7.4, 17, 18, 19.

Millemissen:
So, that is how it finally looks like!
Very nice, indeed - must sound great too.....even with a non-B&O A/V processor.

 
@ Millemissen

So you've finally realized a non-B&O A / V processor can also be used. ( Marantz AV7704.)  Smile  Yes - thumbs up

It is always easy to make things look nice, if you hide away the uncomfortable, ugly things.....including the needed remotes.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

LG 2019 TV's: 8K, 4K, OLED, LCD – everything you need to know . . . . .

Your A to Z of LG’s 2019 TVs 8K, Rollable 4K, OLED and LCD – LG is ticking all the TV boxes in 2019.
So, we've come up with a useful guide to the key models we can expect to see over the next 12 months.

It’s still a bit early to say which are the best LG TVs in 2019 and which should definitely go down on your
shortlist, but we've laid out all the sizes, features and tech highlights for you to absorb.

You’ll find all this information below and we’ll be adding more information to this list as and when we get it,
including prices and release dates. LG 2019 TVs: What's new ?

LG's premium 2019 TVs are powered by the company's new Alpha 9 Gen 2 processing engine. It features
across all five OLED ranges and also powers LG's 75in SM99 8K LCD TV. This latest Alpha 9 chip combines
with LG's two-pronged approach to tackling picture and sound quality on its 2019 TVs.

AI Picture optimises the picture by consulting a look-up table of content and comparing it to the incoming
signal. The TV then adjusts the image automatically to deliver what it believes is the most accurate picture.
It's a system similar to one already used by some rival TV manufacturers, including Panasonic and Sony.

The technology also uses an advanced ambient light sensor which can adjust the TV’s tone mapping curve
based on your lighting conditions. The tech works on two levels depending on the content being shown. With
SDR content it adjusts the overall panel brightness, but with HDR content it can adjust the picture to an ever
finer degree.

LG's AI Sound technology introduces more advanced audio processing to LG's 2019 TVs. It gives compatible
sets the ability to upmix a stereo signal into virtual 5.1 surround sound. LG's sets can also take into account
the specifics of your room layout and acoustics, and tweak the sound accordingly.

As was the case with LG's 2018 premium OLED and LCD models, Dolby Atmos (and Dolby Vision) support
is included. LG 2019 TV features.

The arrival of HDMI 2.1 inputs on LG's 2019 TVs means support for 4K resolution and high frame rates (HFR)
up to 120 frames per second is now included. The sockets also bring with them eARC support and they're
also compatible with variable refresh rate (VRR).

Select LG TVs, including its entire OLED range and premium NanoCell LCD models will have Apple AirPlay 2
and HomeKit support. This doesn't go quite as far as Samsung, whose 2019 TVs will actually boast a
dedicated iTunes app, but LG claims that you'll still be able to enjoy Apple’s 4K HDR content (including Dolby
Vision and Atmos) through compatible TVs. We’ve asked LG for clarification on how this will  work.

For 2019, LG's smart TV system is getting a boost in power. Google Assistant and Alexa support is built-in,
with LG promising more contextual conversations compared to its 2018 models.

Press the dedicated mic button to interact with ThinQ AI and the TV decides whether it can carry out the
command or if it’s one for the Google Assistant. To use Alexa, press the dedicated Alexa button on the remote.

On the audio side, all of LG's OLED and flagship LCD sets are WiSA (Wireless Speaker and Audio) Ready.
The technology allows for wireless streaming of up to eight channels of uncompressed 24-bit audio and also
includes support for formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.OLED TV

At CES 2019, LG officially announced five new ranges of OLED TV – Z9, R9, W9, E9 and C9 – with screen
sizes ranging from 55in to 88in.

The big news is that we can expect to see both 8K OLED (Z9) and 4K rollable OLED TVs (R9) go on sale this
year. Z9 and R9 are due to land in the latter half of the year with the former available in a mammoth 88in screen
size and the latter as a 65in set.

The OLED88Z9 comes with its own stand which carries all the connections and a built-in soundbar. It can also
be wall-mounted. Meanwhile, LG's physics-defying OLED65R9 rolls up into its own TV stand which doubles as
a wireless speaker.

2018's 'G' range has been jettisoned, presumably to make way for the rollable and 8K sets, while E9 continues
LG's 'picture on glass' design, with slight refinements to the amount of glass on display and the speaker
configuration used.

Although it's yet to be officially confirmed, LG hinted at CES that an additional B9 range could arrive later in the
year. This entry-level range usually uses a slightly lower-powered processor compared to its siblings.

Yesterday at the OLED Korea conference, LG Display detailed its future plans for its OLED TV business -
and besides the expected flexible, transparent, rollable and 8K panels, the company also said it plans to
start producing 48" OLED TV panels. This is the first time we hear of such plans, and it will be very good
news to the many consumer who waited patiently for smaller OLED TVs.

As LGD is increasing its production capacity and aiming to be able to produce 10 million TVs by 2021,
it will need to expand its OLED market and this is probably what's behind the decision to finally maker
smaller OLED TV panels. LGD also says it will expand its 8K OLED TV lineup with 65" and 77" 8K panels.

Eh?

There is no 55 inch rollable, not this year.

And almost certainly not next year either

Nothing you have posted suggests otherwise.
