Hi there

Looking at marrying up a Stage with a 65 inch OLED TV, and I’m seeing some well priced Sony’s and Panasonic’s. I’ve always heard the Stage being connected to an LG but what would I lose using a different brand?

Regards

The integration of both (via the B&O app on the LG) and the option of using the Beoremote One for everything there.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Chris Townsend:

I have a 2020 LG GX 55" + Stage + BeoRemote + B&O stand which I'm probably going to sell soon if you're interested. It's smaller than 65", but do you really need a 65"?

And, yes, the LG has some software in it's ROM which was developed with B&O to enable you to use the BeoRemote with it. It's...ok. I'd say you still need your Sky and other remotes, sadly.

Cheers.

It’s got to hang on a pretty big wall all on its own in our new Northumberland pad. I think 55 inch will disappear unfortunately. I’m back off to the desert so ironically I’ll rarely even get to see it!

What are you looking for Chris? I might be interested. Email me you price through here and I’ll let you know. What stand is it?

I was looking to buy a decent sized OLED tv to wall mount, and have a stage underneath it. We went to the new Peter Tyson shop yes in Carlisle which is fantastic, but my wife wasn’t that impressed. Maybe the clip they were using as a demo wasn’t her thing as I’ve heard it better.

I’ve got to say, the B&W Formation sound bar was very impressive too. Who knows.Yes - thumbs up

Hi Chris (Townsend) What TVs have you considered? Just curious. I can't decide whether to upgrade or not! I've got the 11-46 which I am more than happy with but I sometimes feel that I might like to change to the Harmony, just not sure that 65" would be too big that's the prob. I like the LG wallpaper (W8/W9) sets too. Also the Samsung Sero is intriguing as its a bit different. Wondering where you're at with your considerations? I think Peter Tyson in Carlisle are fantastic btw, I have done some great deals with them in the past. Simon.

I went to their Newcastle shop today which is coming along nicely. They’re the second B&O shop in Newcastle. I looked at the LG GX 77 today which is a bargain because a newer better G1 model has come out. It’s about £1,500 more and has better brightness etc but I’m not sure I’ll ever notice.

They had a much better Stage display, so my wife is now sold on that. So we’ll probably get the 77 inch GX and a Stage wall mounted. We saw a nice media cabinet in Beo concept in Fenwicks so we will get that to store all the gubbins. Location is NE482EU.Yes - thumbs up

I'm now even tempted with the 77" myself. The huge white wall I have with the 65" looks tiny. I had the 65 on the B&O stand:

Beosound Stage Floor Stand | B&O (bang-olufsen.com)

I think this looked good. In a way, better than it was on the wall!

The 55" Stage is the Bronze Tone version, but the 65" has the Smoked Oak Stage.

I'd be looking at selling either GX 65" or the 55". The 65" has only had days of use though! I'll message tomorrow. Maybe it's worth going for the 65 + Stand + Stage if you were considering the Harmony?

Here's a quick image - this was post-move (I only moved in here March) and it's now on the wall. Ignore the cables. They were temporary. One even goes off to the right.

With this stand, you can hide the cables down the rear. I bought the stand as I knew I couldn't get the TV on this plasterboard+foam wall swiftly. Needed specialist advise. Now it's on the wall. In a way, I kind of miss the stand though. Decent. Reminds me a little of the Horizon stand.

The Stage sounds better on the stand than on top of a cabinet.

Looks great, but the wife had her eyes on a 77 inch wall. We are currently in Bath at the Portofino restaurant near Waitrose if you’re around? Time is 17:42

Both Chris's invited over for drinks at mine if you fancy it. Unfortunately I've already started on the rose wine so I can't jump in my car to drive to Bath to see you guys! Message me on here if interested and I'll send you my details...

I moved from Bath last month! I'll be back there tomorrow though.
