We have talked about it many times before,

And now I have it from good authority, it will start selling in April.

Pricing not ready yet, but guesses is that pricing will be the same as now. Just that you can get the panel much cheaper now, and therefore total price would be much cheaper.

Hi,


Of course delayed by Corona but does anyone know something about release date of Eclipse 2?

And technical features? I heard about LG CX...

Is it all possible to convert an Eclipse v1 into v2 by simply swapping the C7 panel for a C9?

I know this sounds radical, but if we knew, we'd hear about it here. Last thing I was told (by a dealer) was that it's in the works, but it's still in the development stage. He was saying he wasn't expecting it any time soon. 

People aren't keeping the info to themselves, there's just no new info.

Is there any news on this? It seems a bit odd that the old panel that is from 2017 is still sold as it has been replaced already 2018 with c8 and 2019 with c9 that gives us AirPlay 2 and HomeKit compatibility (coming to the 2018 models too, but not 2017). Now we have cx series as well so its really confusing how they can even get such old panels still.

They must have bought a lot of panels back then, it is very unlikely that they have produced any panels for the Eclipse since 2018.

And I also think that is why we havn't seen the new one yet, they have not sold their old stock yet.

Any news, a Dane on another forum have been given a price on the new setup with a GX, so should not be too long.... I also said that when the thread began.....

It's still coming. Last I heard, B&O was planning a more flexible bracket to allow people to drop in a panel update at a later date. Ironically, no-one seems to have complained that this was what dealers promised buyers when they first bought their Eclipse - that B&O would supply an updated panel in the future. Now the CX is out, you'd think this is perfect for original owners.

I don't think they are buying old panels. We've had that discussion, too. The rumour is they bought a large number of custom panels and simply haven't shifted them all?

And the thread said it would come in April :). Well, we don’t know what will happen until it happens I guess but been waiting for an update now for a long while. I have a hard time believing they bought a lot of panels that just sit idle in a facility somewhere. The only real difference to be honest is the back plate and I’m sure LG assembles them as easy as their own ones. I can imagine they do like a run of 100 or 1000 per production as making a much higher bunch at once would be very stupid as it would make it hard to fix potential hardware issues along the way, and would cause a hefty cash investment in a very inflexible way. Remember B&O was not doing super well when that deal was announced.

Anyway, I do hope for the better and that a more flexible stand is on the way. Surely the Stage stand makes me believe that the future is going to be more flexible and I honestly don’t mind the back side that much. If the screen is fixed to the wall it won’t be visible at all really and I guess a cover plate could be mounted on top of the Lg plate if one really wants to hide it.

Actually I would not be surprised if they would let stb brackets also find a solution for a nice back cover for those interested in such. For me flexibility and design both matters but having a possibility to protect and upgrade an investment is always a good thing. For the environment, the user and everyone else.

Not really hard to believe? They have custom panel components and for those to be a) tooled and b) manufactured at a sufficient cost for B&O, there will have been a minimum order. LG won't be producing those old custom panels on demand in 2020 - like Emil says, they'll have stored production stock somewhere.

My understanding is that B&O wants to move away from this for the Eclipse v2 and just produce a stand which allows you to drop in a new panel yourself, later, without any custom components.

The only customized part is the back plate, nothing else. It’s just a plastic cover. Maybe they have a lot in stock but I doubt it. I think they both went into the project to see and learn. And that it’s easy to make a special edition so to say as it’s simply another plastic cover. Even a regular CX panel works flawlessly with the Sound center so I really doubt any components except for the cover is different.

the whole body of the screen on the eclipse is custom, there is no ''lg'' on/off light for once and the rear is totally different and the entire bottom is flat to fit. also the firmware is totally custom, you can't get in to the ''lg'' part of sound nor does it have the standard lg speakers attached. We seem to all be way over simplifying what b&o put in to the eclipse.

Well I do not have one of either, I just assumed the plastic cover is different and not putting speakers or the button in is probably not a big deal. Its a custom model of course but the changes are fairly small. As far as I have understood there is no special firmware, just the B&O app to make the units interact with each other. As everyone knows, a regular LG panel work with both Stage and SoundCentre. Anyway, I hope there will be a new solution soon and that the way they do it is making updates simpler.

It also have 2 tv tuner, the C7 have not, and no it is not an app on the eclipse.

Also it came in a B&O box,

So no not that simply, it is not a C7 it is a Eclipse panel, as much as E7 is not a C7, or actually even more.
