Hmm. Would like to see it in person as I'm sure it's more impressive with the movement and the materials etc. in person.

Would also like to see how it looks wall mounted. The size of the speaker vs the panel doesn't look proportionate from the pics but I guess that is a hommage to the older BeoVisions.


Then of course I hope they keep delivering timely software updates that the actual LG branded panels themselves receive.

So I think this is a very nice design and at 3x the price of the basic tv from LG while still expensive, seems understandable and even defendable. I, for one, am impressed.

I wonder if I in the long run would have the patience to wait for the panels to swing into place Smile

Certainly a new take on television / soundcentre though..

Would be cool if the visible parts of the TV panel could be used to present info regarding what is playing on the sound system, but I guess that would require a closer integration with the video part than what is actually done here.

My question is how many "Halo products" B&O need. almost 20K eur for a TV is not for everyone, nor is a screen of this size.

Agree. Assume that to be a fixed bracket. Otherwise the TV have to be quite far out from the wall to enable the panels to do their thing.

Other alternative would be that the panels first fan out and then the TV swing out into position, but I think that in total would take too long time.

It really does. It looks like something designed in 1979 and brought to life in 2019 😳

Don't hold your breath. The other day my dealer (he called the TV "butterfly") told me plenty of dealers are furious because there was no option except the stand.

Hopefully he is wrong!

I'll reserve judgement until I see it in the flesh but it looks clumsy in the pictures, and I can't help feeling the speaker movement is just design for design's sake. I suspect David Lewis would not have approved...

I have to admit the design is growing on me, but 77-inch only is a no-go.

Do You want bigger or smaller than 77 inch? Or both perhaps?

@Sandb: you're fairly spot on, as always. 

The Eclipse and the Horizon were declared EOL last month (March) and B&O is, sort of, exiting the TV market: This is a lift and a speaker system for the 77" and 88" LG TV's. As B&O "lost" control of the totality, mounting options had to be limited to a controlled lift environment: wall mounting or turning a 3. party screen is difficult from an HSE point in todays world (liability). At the first presentation B&O hadn't even decided if the LG TV should be supplied by the dealer or by another party (Dixons a.o.).

For that you get to choose between a combined oak wood/aluminium front or a combined grey melange two-tone fabric/aluminium front,

and you get to decide if you want to employ the included floor stand or wall bracket.

Cool but also a bit odd. I wish they would also introduce a sound center without the tv at all. I want to integrate a projector or wallpaper tv in my home and run it with the finesse of B&O.

Should add that I'm very happy to see that B&O is still focusing on the BeoVision side - and not only releasing headphones and portable speakers. 

The final version of the Harmony is stunning, but at a price point that will not help most B1's - but the sound bar and the other video product to be released later will hopefully increase in-store traffic with their more affordable price points. 

Today, IMHO, B&O is great at the very high end of audio & video - and at the Beoplay end... they are struggling with the middle part that most here are interested in.
