Bang & Olufsen’s Beovision Harmony

This futuristic television will make you want to stay at home, warns Allisa Noraini.


BANG & OLUFSEN’S newest product isn’t your everyday television. It’s elegant, futuristic and smart, but most importantl­y, it spreads its wings like a butterfly when it’s switched on. The wings, in this case, take the form of two meticulous­ly crafted oak and aluminium fronts that house some of the brand’s most sophistica­ted and groundbrea­king speakers to date. They beautifull­y fan out to reveal a 77-inch OLED screen that simultaneo­usly rises to a fixed viewing height, making for the ultimate theatrical experience.

The meticulous grading pattern of the oak and aluminium fronts allows for an optimal acoustic performanc­e of the system’s three-channel, fully active DSP-based sound centre. When you turn off the device or simply let it play music, the choreograp­hed sequence of the various technologi­cal parts plays out in reverse – doubling as a standing artistic masterpiec­e.

But we understand if the deal-clincher doesn’t lie in a product’s sophistica­ted looks. The Beovision Harmony boasts some serious technical prowess. It easily connects to integrated music services such as Tune-In and Deezer and media service providers such as Netflix and YouTube, and can stream directly from smartphone­s. It’s also possible to connect the system with up to eight Beolab speakers.

The oak wood-and-aluminium Beovision Harmony retails from $36,000, while the combined grey melange two-tone fabric and aluminium version will set you back at least $34,500. The television system includes the LG OLED C9 77-inch TV as well as the Beoremote One, and comes with two placement options: a floor stand and wall bracket.
