The latest Beovision Harmony TV is new for 2020 and follows-up on 77-inch and 65-inch models first introduced in 2019. The set is based upon LG8217;s Signature ZX Series OLED TV, which was unveiled at CES 2020. It8217;s more than two-metres wide and will offer compatible content at 16-times the detail provided by high definition.
It8217;ll be available at the end of June from $49,000 (around £44,000) and is designed for those who don8217;t want their perfectly crafted living room spoiled by a basic looking flatscreen television.

It8217;ll be available in a number of finishes including brass-coloured aluminium with smoked oak accents, or bronzed aluminium with walnut trim. It also includes those fold-out butterfly wings that partially obscure the 8K panel when not in use. It8217;s a bit gimmicky, but it8217;s the type of thing the folks who8217;d spend this much money on a television would likely enjoy.
Sound wise, there8217;s a three-channel sound system with a built-in subwoofer as you8217;d expect from a company of the stature of B&O. Naturally, the firm would like you to pair the set with its Beolab speakers to create that full 7.1 surround sound experience.
8220;Sound is more than half the picture. Beovision Harmony fuses stellar audio and vivid images into a full-bodied cinematic performance. Behind the front covers hides a forceful Bang & Olufsen sound centre that instantly catches your ears. The 3-channel speaker setup delivers speech-optimised centre channel and powerful stereo performance,8221; the firm writes.
On its website, the company wrote: 8220;Honouring the proud heritage of Danish design, Beovision Harmony speaks to those who believe that aesthetics are just as important as experience. The television is based on mid-century entertainment cabinets that hide the TV behind delicate blinds to fully integrate with the living room.8221;
