      Hello Beoworlders,

      About to change my 1st gen 55″ Eclipse, I’m facing a dilemma: 65″ Theater or 65″ Harmony?

      Theater Pros: New technology, price tag, easy screen-swap.

      Theater cons: Average design, floor stand VERY expensive.

      Harmony Pros: Pure B&O design and beautiful movement of the speakers.

      Harmony cons: A bit dated, screen swap may be difficult in the future, short EOL delay as B&O appears to drop fully integrated video products.

      Brain votes Theater but Heart prefers Harmony.

      My main concern is about screen-swap, as 1st gen Eclipse owners may imagine.

      The second one, if heart wins, is Harmony EOL in a short term?

      What would you do? Feel free to expose the reasons of your choice.

      Thanks by advance,

      Yann.

        Until my Theatre purchase (with the LG G2 65 panel) ,I had a Mk1 Eclipse 65. The Eclipse was to me a nice looking TV but as you point-out, a Dog with respect to panel burn-in and replacement.

        I do not like the design of the Harmony. Full Stop.

        I think the Theatre is technologically quite a bit a head of the Harmony and I think it offers better value too. Im not sure about Screen replacement on the Harmony (I mean future upgrades and different makes which have the app rather than like for like).

        I voted with my wallet. Theatre all the way.

            I’m hoping to squeeze a few (perhaps many?) more years out of my 1st gen 65′ Eclipse.  It is on its 2nd screen… hoping this one lasts a bit longer.  Anyway, if I were to replace, I’d go with the Theater for the ability to swap the screen and the cheaper price tag.  If/when I finally dump my Eclipse, it’s going bother me that the soundbar will most likely still be quite viable, but it was let down by the panel.  Then again, I’m biased because the Theater is pretty much exactly what I was hoping for from B&O all along, but I did not feel like waiting 5 years for something that may never materialize.

              Thanks Stan,

              What you describe is what I experience with my Eclipse, mine is also on it’s second screen.

              So for the time being, Theater wins.

              Kind regards,

              Yann.
