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

KMA:

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.

Guys, we discuss things that just aren't going to happen.

The 48" Contour is B&O's "basic" entry-level TV. If you want to move up to 55" or higher, you have the Eclipse. You won't get a 55" Contour. No clue why we're even thinking it will happen.

It looks great. But seems incredibly overpriced compared to a stage, stand, LG CX, beoremote combo. You don’t get any additional features. B&O seem to have missed a trick in regards to the PL/surround sound capability - the Horizon did it!! Seems like a significant downgrade and a lazy decision to simply plug a stage into a LG tv and call it an “entry level” BeoVision.

It is exactly that - lazy.

Either lazy with respect to the included functionalities, or lazy with respect of pricing it similarly to their previous entry level TV.

That entry level TV had expansion capability, this does not.

Which is a shame, because in certain colour schemes it seems to look pretty nice.

Of course its meant to be stand alone TV - but in that case there are plenty of much better value propositions in the market, for half the price or less.

Not wanting to start the "is it a beovision" thing again but watched "how do they do it" last night where they showed the building of a bv10.

No comparison, not even remotely! (sic)

Ban boring signatures!

One thing I wonder is, wouldn't the picture reflect in the frame when in low lit room?
I thought it was the reason why the frame in the BV 10/11/14 was beveled to the outside and the Horizon frame was dark.

The youtube video seems to answer this a little bit.

Any info on whether the "naked" Stage will work on its own, without the Contour Frame?

Fansastic:

I wonder if the frame will be sold separately so we can benefit from a discounted LG panel through bulk suppliers

Also, does this mean the Stage is getting a wood fret?

You can get a wood fret for the Stage -although not from B&O (yet):

The price would be fine if it included a motorised stand.

Anyone already informed about the pricing of the Contour elements:

- LG CX48

- Stage without frame

- Frame

I tempted to get a LG48 upfront and later get the frame / stand / cover

Thanks

@Fansastic: Please note that sometimes dealers are offering nice bonuses if you buy everything from them at once:

I've been notified by my dealer that if I get the full Harmony (incl. LG GX) B&O is offering 5 years warranty free of charge, and they have a very nice price on the 65GX. so don't hesitate to ask, you may be surprised.

Just a few observations on the Contour

 

  • I like the fact that the aluminium actually looks like that. On the horizon it was always anodized black, which made it look like plastic.
  • It has more bulk, both visually and in actual dimensions, than the Horizon, not to my liking. It's a good deal heavier too.
  • The easel stand has gone by the looks of it. I very much dislike TV-stands and wall mountings as well, so sad to see that one go.
  • Sad to see there's no 40 inch version. I'm probably a minority of one, but 48 inches is too big for me. It's probably no longer feasible for B&O to cater for that market.

@beocool

I hope STB makes an easel stand!

In any case it is hard to find a 40” LCD at all. Let alone a 40” LG with a chip capable of handling the B&O app. I guess a 40” won’t be in the cards. But remember that B&O now offers every OLED size that LG is making (48/55/65/77/88). 48 is pitched more as a desk top gaming screen than a tv. Times are changing.
