Have I missed something, or has this new TV already been discussed somewhere?

Mikipidia:

They take the alu edge off and slide it in the frame, same for the panel. I've seen it yesterday. if this is ''custom'' then I guess yes, but it's literally the stage with out the alu frame and nothing else is different. Even the holes for the front cover are the same, inside it also has the two lights you see on the Stage.

I asked how to built the contour and that's what I was told and also could verify by seeing it Smile

Yes but in the pricelist I found that you could buy a Cheaper version of the Stage without the Frame, So you don need to throw out frames ;)

Beovision Harmony 77" 2nd Gen, Beolab 5, Beolab 17, Beosound 1, Beoplay M3, Beoplay H6, Beoplay Earset, Beoliving Intelligence

I'll ask him again. I guess dealer's are lacking all the information they need so far. I wonder if they can buy a Contour without the Stage though.

The "naked" Stage is featured in the pricelist as a stand alone item with its own product number, so I guess you can.

BeoSound Stage Floor Stand: 700€

LG CX 48": 1.199€ (or 55" for 1.299€)

BeoSound Stage: 1.500€

BeoRemote One: 300€

Total: 3.699€ or 2.999€ with wall brackets.

Contour: starting from 5.299€ with wall bracket. The aluminum frame is pretty expensive!

48" is a bit too small for me, but I really like Contour's design. I'd take a 55" version over Eclipse any time.

Any info on the Contour floor stand price?

Where are you located? If you can get CX48 for 1.190 you can get the Contour for less too. In the Netherlands CX48 still retails for 1.699.

I'm located in Finland. Just checked the 48" CX price: https://www.verkkokauppa.com/fi/product/24134/nkfdh/LG-OLED48CX-48-4K-Ultra-HD-OLED-televisio

It's the time of year when CX prices (prices of LG's this year's models in general) start to come down as 2021 models are around the corner.

So the floor stand is only ~300€ extra. That's not bad at all.

I’d get a 55 version for my bedroom too, in theory.

But no power link , no motorised wall bracket - too limiting for the price

I fully agree. I think the package look very nice, and it could be seen as a possible replacement of my trusted BV10-40, but the lack of Power Link connections is frustrating, having invested in B&O Lab 18's, 4000's and Lab2 to have surround. Wonder if it is possible to fix this by adding an Almando box to the Contour and still use the built in speaker as center channel ? Spoke to a dealer today advising this was not possible, and he wanted me to buy the Eclipse instead. He may have had his reasons for not telling the full story. Anyone in the forum having any knowledge of whether the Almando box would be a possibility ?? Adding the cost of an Almando box would still be cheaper than going for the Eclipse mk II.

There won't be a 55" version (that's the Eclipse) as it's using the Stage technology, which just happens to be the same width as the 48".

ie. a 55" would require a brand new speaker, which makes the entire project custom and not using existing components. Not going to happen.

Correct... the Contour is 48" only. A 55" would be in the price range of the Ecliple with less features

I'm sure you are correct and that this is B&O's reasoning as well.

However, Stage would fit in a 55" Contour frame: just small spacers at both ends of Stage, inside the frame, and slightly longer speaker covers. I can see how this could be done. Easily, actually.

I’m aware, was just wish casting for the purpose of illustration
