Bang & Olufsen and LG show off OLED HDR TV with built-in sound bar, motorized stand

  1. If you’re spending a lot of money on a high-end, 4K-enabled OLED television, you’ll probably want a good soundbar to compliment it. At IFA 2017, audio giant Bang & Olufsen has combined both products in the B&O BeoVision Eclipse, the first TV to come from its partnership with LG.

    Available in 55-inch and 65-inch sizes, both 4K sets feature HDR technology and come with LG's WebOS 3.5, which the company says is 40 percent faster than its predecessor. It allows users access to apps and services such as Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Video, and supports Chromecast, AirPlay and Bluetooth devices.

    What really sets the BeoVision Eclipse aside from other TVs is the inclusion of Bang & Olufsen's three-channel SoundCenter – a 450W sound bar attached beneath the screen that features integrated internet radio and music streaming. It can be customized with colored fabrics or aluminum, and if you want a multi-channel surround sound experience, it's possible to add extra speakers from B&O’s line.

    If all that isn’t fancy enough, the TV comes with a motorized stand, allowing it to swivel and move soundlessly around the room using the BeoRemote One BT remote. It can also be mounted on a motorized or manual wall bracket.

    Not surprisingly, all this high-end tech doesn’t come cheap. The 55-inch wall-bracket model will cost $10,990, while the 65-inch television is priced at $15,990. They’ll be available from Bang & Olufsen retailers as of this September.

    Somehow, HDR and a soundbar seem like oil and water.

    Whoever designed that thing needs a drug test, I have made turds more visually appealing than that thing.

    For that price why not buy a real audio system and a TV?

    For now I'll just take your word on that but next time take a snap of it and post it here so we'll know you're not lying. ;)

    11 & 16 K respectively??? Just for a TV... and some soundbar??? OK then, where do I place my order? I'm thinking of putting a much cheaper TV in my toilet because the one I currently have in it, somebody's been leaving bite marks in it instead of just reaching for the Seltzer.

    Imagining the
    "motorized stand, allowing it to swivel and move soundlessly around the room using the BeoRemote One BT remote"
    -hacked- and doing the remote-Roomba for it's richer-than-small-countries but clueless owner.. definitely made me laugh.
