B&O BeoVi­sion Eclipse

T3 - - Hype - From £8,290, bang-olufsen.com/en

Damn! That’s one gor­geous TV.

Agreed. In fact, Bang & Olufsen is mar­ket­ing the new BeoVi­sion Eclipse, de­signed with in­put from LG, as “the de­fin­i­tive TV”, thanks to its cut­ting-edge 4K HDR OLED screen tech and what B&O de­scribes as “the world’s best TV sound”. That may seem like a bold claim, but this lux­ury telly is hous­ing some rather im­pres­sive tech goods.

So it’s a TV and a sound sys­tem?

Pre­cisely. The BeoVi­sion Eclipse’s SoundCen­tre fea­tures a 450-watt, three-chan­nel speaker sys­tem serv­ing up a pow­er­ful stereo per­for­mance and speech-op­ti­mised au­dio. As you’ve al­ready spot­ted, this op­u­lent telly pulls dou­ble-duty as a wire­less mu­sic sys­tem – con­nect up to eight speak­ers for a sur­round-sound so­lu­tion that’ll make you drool – with on­board stream­ing sup­port from Ap­ple Air­Play, Blue­tooth and Chrome­cast. You can also ac­cess in­te­grated mu­sic ser­vices, such as Spo­tify Con­nect, Deezer and TuneIn.

What about the pic­ture?

The TV uses LG’s lat­est OLED panel, wrapped in an an­odised alu­mini­um­cov­ered speaker and boast­ing en­hanced HDR per­for­mance and Dolby Vi­sion. It also uses cut­ting-edge pixel dim­ming­con­trol tech to pro­duce deep blacks and an ex­panded colour gamut. Nav­i­gat­ing con­tent is easy with the in­clu­sion of LG’s we­bOS 3.5, pro­vid­ing ac­cess to stream­ing ser­vices in­clud­ing Net­flix and Ama­zon Video, and the BeoVi­sion One re­mote.

When is this TV com­ing out?

The B&O BeoVi­sion Eclipse is avail­able to buy this Novem­ber in two sizes: 55 inches (£ 8,290) and 65 inches (£11,590).

Sim­ply the best

De­signed with the lofty aim of be­com­ing the world’s best TV, the BeoVi­sion Eclipse oozes style and pre­mium sound and vi­sion tech. If you have the cash, this 4K-HDR-OLE D-TV-meetswire­less-mu­sic-sys­tem is a no-brainer

Ev ery­thing in its place

You have a va­ri­ety of place­ment op­tions for the BeoVi­sion Eclipse: there’s a man­ual ‘float­ing’ wall bracket, mov­ing up to 60° from wall, or a mo­torised wall bracket with BeoRe­mote One op­er­a­tion. There’s also a mo­torised floor stand, mov­ing up to 90° ei­ther side
