The big 77” TV mar­ket has just got a new en­trant and the en­tire ship­ment of the all-new Loewe Bild 7 OLED TV has sold out de­spite Indi Im­ports drop­ping sev­eral re­tail­ers as re­sellers.

Launched at IFA the first containers of the new graphite alu­minium Bild 7 have been snapped up by Bose deal­ers af­ter im­porter Indy Im­ports de­cided to move sales from se­lect spe­cial­ist chan­nel re­tail­ers Tivoli, Klapp and Au­dio Trends to a new net­work of re­sellers.

The new TV will also be sold by The Life­style Store in Syd­ney as well as via Rio Sound and Vi­sion in Mel­bourne.

Com­pet­ing up against the $30,000 Pana­sonic OLED TV and more ex­pen­sive large screen TV of­fer­ings from LG and Sam­sung the new TV has been praised by re­view­ers fol­low­ing its launch at IFA.

The TV is the largest screen in the Bild 7 range and con­sists of nearly two me­tres of screen.

Ac­cord­ing to Paul Ri­achi the CEO of Indi Im­ports more than 60 of the new 77” TV’s were de­liv­ered to re­tail­ers this week and that he has back or­ders for ad­di­tional stock which will ar­rive in the new year.

Trusted Re­views said of the new TV “For starters, there’s a lovely metal­lic crisp­ness to ev­ery­thing, from the dis­tinc­tive cir­cu­lar Loewe ‘eye’ LED and IR re­ceiver be­low the screen, right through to the im­pres­sively ro­bust rear panel”.

They added “It’s se­ri­ously well built. Even though the ma­jor­ity of the screen is in­sanely thin in that way only OLED tech­nol­ogy can man­age, I never felt scared of snap­ping it – which is the worry I’ve had with a num­ber of other su­per-thin OLED TVs”.

The stylish top end Bild 7 pre­mium TV fea­tures graphite grey alu­minium on the front, and dark or light grey fab­ric cov­ers on the back to which hides away all those messy ca­bles.

The Ul­tra HD OLED screen mea­sures just 9mm on the ruler, and can han­dle HDR10, Dolby Vi­sion and HLG con­tent. Ba­si­cally, it will play any­thing you can throw at it said Trusted Re­views.

Loewe’s own picture pro­cess­ing tech­nol­ogy works be­hind the scenes to en­sure that what you’re view­ing is pre­sented in the best pos­si­ble way.

Also built in is a sound­bar that pumps out 120 Watts of au­dio from un­der­neath the screen when you turn the TV on.

For those who want to ramp up the sound, the Bild 7.77 has a built-in 5.1 sur­round-sound de­coder, so you can di­rectly con­nect it to speak­ers with­out the need for a bulky AV re­ceiver.

With a TV that looks as good as the Bild 7.77, you’ll want to be able to see it no mat­ter where you put it in the room, or if you get up and move

around. To re­solve this, Loewe has built in a mo­torised ta­ble or floor stand, which lets you move it to any po­si­tion us­ing the re­mote con­trol. Al­ter­na­tively, you can get the wall mount and hang it up like the work of art it is.

Con­nec­tions in­clude four HDMI, three USB and Blue­tooth for stream­ing au­dio to the TV, or back out to Blue­tooth head­phones. There’s also a built-in dig­i­tal TV recorder with 1TB of stor­age space.

The new TV is set to re­tail for sub $25,000 in Aus­tralia de­spite it be­ing Ger­man and Euro­pean Made.
