Hi Peter, great thread!

Is there any news on smaller B&O wisa speakers such as for instance a Wisa beolab 3 or a Wisa center speaker?

Placing the beolab 17 as rear surround speakers in our living room is a no go for my wife...

HI pauliander, and thank you.

We can hopefully expect a larger range of WiSA compatible active speakers from Bang & Olufsen.
But at present I have not heard of such an initiative. Personally, I have requested one WiSA center
speaker designed to fit naturally under LG's C9 panels.

A very good idea that Wisa center speaker. It seems to me a gap in B&O’s range of Wisa of speakers.

Do you think that the LG usb dongle will suffice or will we still need a proper Wisa receiver? In other words is there a need that B&O develops a Wisa beosystem 5?

Yes, I think the WiSA usb dongle will be enough with LG's 2019 OLED TV, it's proven, see picture at the end of page 40.
Now, LG's 2019 OLED TV is coming out. Then there will soon be someone testing the WiSA usb dongle connected to
LG's 2019 OLED TV. We need some patience.

Update from tomsguide.com - Click here.

Note this section:

Smart home interaction is vastly improved, with support for all manner of smart home devices.
LG has teamed up with the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), so you'll be able to control
all of your smart stuff — lightbulbs, door locks, smart washers and dryers, and more.
Anything that uses OCF's certification standard can be connected to the TV and controlled
from the comfort of your couch. - Click here.

May 2009 I bought BeoVision 7-40 Full HD, mk III. which also works fine today. I'm happy with that, because this
gives me good opportunity to follow the development of LG's TV, which will be my next TV. Here my setup today.

LG OLED C9 (55, 65 and 77 ") 2019 TV

Model C9 belongs to the lineup of OLED TVs LG 2019 and is the successor to last year's model C8 .  The main
differences between C9 and C8 are: the ports of the latest HDMI 2.1 standard, an upgraded video processor, an
updated webOS 4.5 platform with artificial intelligence functions, support for wireless multichannel WiSA sound,
and improved gaming performance due to VRR support (similar to Freesync). The design of the model largely
repeats last year’s, albeit with some changes.

The C9 model is available in three screen diagonal versions: 55, 65 and 77 inches (model designations for the
market are LG OLED55C9PLA, OLED65C9PLA and OLED77C9PLA).

HDMI 2.1
The newest HDMI 2.1 interface used in C9 provides many times more bandwidth than HDMI 2.0 (48 Gbit / s
versus 18 Gbit / s), which will allow displayingthe image in a higher resolution.  In particular, there was support
for 4K / 120 Hz mode.  In addition, HDMI 2.1 brought support for the Variable Refresh Ratefeature, which is
analogous to the AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync synchronization technologies, and Dynamic HDR will allow
for enhanced dynamic range (HDR) performance at a frame-by-frame level, which should further improve the image
quality on compatible monitors or tvs.  Also, the HDMI 2.1 standard includes Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM)
technology, which automatically determines the optimal delay time for the smoothest frame rate. Inaddition, HDMI
2.1 provides a number of other useful features, including HDMI eARC, thereby providing lossless output and
transmission of audio through the HDMI eARC port. The LG C9 TV with support for the new High Definition
Multimedia Interface 2.1 is backward compatible with the peripherals of the previous version of the standard 2.0,
and also uses the familiar connectors.  However, to connect external devices with HDMI 2.1, you need to acquire
new cables marked Ultra High Speed ​​HDMI.

10 bit color depth
LG C9 TV is equipped with a matrix with a 10-bit color depth.  Today, most modern TVs (with the exception of the
top) use 8-bit matrixes - with a color dept of 8 bits for each of the three RGB colors (red, green, blue) there are 256
shades.  In panels with a color of 10 bits, the number of such shades per color is 1024. Having erected 1024 cubes,
we get 1.07 billion colors per pixel.  If this number is compared with 16.8 million shades with a color depth of 8 bits,
then it is immediately obvious that the difference is quite noticeable.  It is also characteristic that the human eye is
able to perceive much more shades than with 8-bit chromaticity.  As a result, on LCD panels in 10 bits of color look
more realistic. The OLED panel from LG Display almost did not change, but this yearthe TVs received an improved
anti-glare filter.

HDR Formats
In addition to the traditional HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG, the C9 model can now work with Technicolor’s
Advanced HDR format, as well as LG’s own HLG Pro and HDR10 Pro formats. In 2019, LG continues to ignore the
competitive standard in the face of Samsung HDR10 +, arguing that the same effect on its models is achieved
simply using the dynamic mode Tone mapping.  Enhanced Dynamic Tone Mapping's proprietary algorithm allows
LG new products toprocess HDR images dynamically, frame by frame.

Processing dynamic scenes
The C9 model has the same hardware with the W9 and E9 models, built on the second generation LG α9 Gen2
(Alpha 9, "alpha nine") image processor. This processor replaces the previous Alpha 9 solution and features
improved color and motion processing algorithms. To improve the image, in particular, AI Picture machine
learning algorithms are used, which automatically analyze the content (AI Sound is used to improve the sound).

Acoustics
Since 2017, LG has been equipping its TVs with Dolby Atmos , which ultimately has a positive effect on sound.
This feature automatically adjusts to the connected speaker system, whether it is a built-in sound system or any
external acoustics. The speaker system in the model C9 is made according to the scheme 2.2 with a total power
of 40 watts. To connect and transfer audio content of mobile devices in the presence of the function Wireless Sound
Sync. In addition, the TV supports the latest technology of wireless transmission of multi-channel WiSA audio. 
With its help, you can broadcast sound from your TV to compatible WiSA speakers (at the moment there is already
Klipsch, Bang & Olufsen, Axiim, Enclave Audio).  In this case, we are talking not only about the standard 5.1 sound,
but also about modern formats, including Dolby Atmos and DTS: X.  The Summit technology used in WiSA supports
multichannel audio without compression (up to 8 channels). According to WiSA, the sound quality is 20 times
superior to the capabilities of Bluetooh technology and Wi-Fi.

Sure it will work like a charm behind a solid sheet of metal (The TV chassis),- not!

Then again who cares? If you cant cope with a simple wire for a speaker you truly deserve every single problem you will encounter!

You know, Peter Pan has always been an advocate for very simple setups.

Magic Remote
An important advantage is the acquisition of the C9 model with the Magic Remote , which greatly improves
the ease of operation of the TV.  The main features of the LG Magic Remote are, of course, the cursor that
moves around the TV screen when you move the remote in space (a gyro is built into the remote).  In this
case, the remote does not necessarily have to be sent to the TV.

For people who are wondering, the Eclipse has this functionality implemented in the B&O app. Just go to the third screen and there is a virtual trackpad. The left part control the cursor. You move it over the TV screen and with a light tap you select the option. The rightmost part is used for scrolling.

Enjoy,

Jean

Interesting Jean.
What will then be easiest to use. B&O App or Magic Remote. Have an opinion about it.

Very simple: within the B&O environment, the B&O app. It can be used side by side with the Beoremote One. To my knowledge, the Magic Remote doesn't work with the Eclipse.

For a system based on a stock LG TV, obviously the Magic Remote!

For ease of use, that depends of your preferences. The virtual trackpad works like that of a computer. The magic remote works like a Wii controller. One of my relatives has a LG TV (not OLED) and use it.
