New BeoPlay V1 shows up ahead of time, hearts and wallets flutter

We’re more used to phones getting leaked ahead of time, but it’s not always just the latest and greatest handset that sneaks its way into our inbox. Danish website Recordere has managed to get a cheeky glimpse of the new BeoPlay V1 TV from Bang and Olufsen. Pegged as the new “affordable” model from the Scandinavian manufacturer, it’ll come in two flavors: the BeoPlay V1-32 and V1-40 (the numbers representing screen size,) which include DLNA functionality, five HDMI ports, one USB, and integrated 5.1 surround sound, as well as a few other treats. The official launch is the 5th of May, with pricing set at €2,399 and €2,899 (about $3,170 and $3,831 respectively) depending how big the space in your front room is.

Bang & Olufsen debuts BeoVision 12-65 plasma TV, BeoLab 12 speakers

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012
Bang & Olufsen’s TVs aren’t exactly for everyone, but those willing to spare no expense to turn a few heads now have yet another impressive model to consider form the company. It’s just announced its new BeoVision 12-65, a plasma TV that makes use of a so-called NeoPDP panel and some clever design touches that make the 65-inch set appear as thin as possible. It’s also naturally full HD and 3D compatible, and it packs an integrated center channel speaker that can be paired with a surround sound setup. Alongside it, B&O has also debuted its new BeoLab 12 loudspeakers, which pack a total of 480W and once again place a heavy emphasis on style. No word on pricing for either just yet, but the TV will be available this March, with the speakers rolling out in “early Spring.”

Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound 5 Encore redefines ‘affordable,’ looks good doing it (video)

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

It’s certainly been a while since Bang & Olufsen’s given any love to its gorgeous (but pricey) BeoSound 5, but refining self-proclaimed perfection takes… well, about three years. The more affordable $3,350 BeoSound 5 Encore carries over the svelte 10.4-inch LCD / scroll wheel toting controller from its predecessor, but nixes the BeoMaster music server requirement, allowing it to run headless (and in turn save you bookodles of cash). So how does one play tunes if it rides solo? With a bevy of new connectivity options: content can now be slung over USB (be it via a “mobile device,” thumb key or hard drive), from a NAS, over A2DP Bluetooth, or from one of 13,000 internet radio stations. It’ll ship in August, which’ll leave you plenty of time to count those pennies, and perhaps to ponder why it couldn’t spring for finer graphics in the video that awaits you beyond the fold.

Bang & Olufsen’s 85-inch 3DTV comes to North America for $1,000 per inch

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Because the current lineup of 3D capable HDTVs just aren’t exclusive enough, Bang & Olufsen has expanded its lineup with the BeoVision 4-85 plasma which will be available to North American buyers next month for a mere $85,000. While we prefer to save our riches for for even rarer sets like Panasonic’s 152-incher, the BeoVision system does include the triangular BeoLab 10 center channel speaker and a motorized stand that lowers it when you’re not watching. Either way, we won’t tell you how to spend your (presumably ill-gotten) ducats beyond pointing out the specs in the press release below, but those interested in staying one step ahead of the Joneses should remember a refreshed version of the 103-inch edition with 3D will be available this summer as well.

Bang & Olufsen’s 85-Inch 3DTV Is Strictly for A/V Junkies [Video]

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011
If the 85-inch, 3D display on Bang & Olufsen’s BeoVision 4-85 doesn’t turn a few heads, maybe its motorized stand will. Their first foray into 3DTVs, Bang & Olufsen’s BeoVision stand automatically tilts and rises to match your line of sight, giving you an optimum view of the anti-reflective plasma screen, which is housed in a handsome aluminum frame. Pricing is unknown at the moment, but expect to get more details when the BeoVision 4-85 is revealed tomorrow in Moscow. [Engadget] More »

Bang & Olufsen adds WiFi to Beo6 remote control, doesn’t think to mention it

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

It wasn’t easy, but we finally managed to spot a few differences between the old Beo5 remote control and Bang & Olufsen’s new Beo6 that just appeared on B&O’s pages. To start with, the hyperbolic product page for the controller is a word-for-word copy of the old, only with each instance of a “5″ replaced with a “6.” The user guide doesn’t provide much assistance either stating that the “Beo6 is fully compatible with Beo5″ right down to using the exact same menus and controls. So what’s new? Well, the new “wireless setup” chapter seems to be a clue indicating that the Beo6 can connect to your WiFi network to enable 2-way control with other Bang & Olufsen products supporting 2-way communication — naturally, these aren’t listed and any configuration of the controller will have to be done by a B&O retailer. We did manage to dig up an old article from BeoWorld claiming that the Beo6 would feature a touch (not pressure like the Beo5) sensitive widescreen display to show information like cover art and tag data just as soon as B&O’s BeoSound 4 Encore and BeoSound 5 could support it. While this kind of product perplexity would be a knock against any other mainstream consumer electronic remote, B&O owners can rest easy knowing that their man servant will sort it all out.

Bang & Olufsen announces 46-inch BeoVision 10

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Suddenly Bang & Olufsen’s 40-inch HDTV seems like a consolation prize. While the BeoVision 10-40 is making its good will tour of the states, the kids in Copenhagen will be checking out the new standard in the company’s lavish displays, the BeoVision 10-46. Aside from the 6-inch real estate boost, this thing sports “a new and exciting LED-based, 240Hz LCD panel” and unnamed “sophisticated motion compensation technologies” that apparently sport “a yet unseen level of smoothness.” Can you handle all this sophistication? We didn’t think so. To be unveiled on April 14 in Denmark, goes on sale this summer. No word yet on a price, but we’re guessing you can’t afford it anyways.

Bang & Olufsen’s multifunctional BeoTime gets carefully handled

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

It’s rare that we get to see magic wand-shaped remote controls, and rarer still for them to have integrated alarm clocks. The Bang & Olufsen BeoTime is just that sort of exotic specimen, and its $375 touch-sensitive aluminum body has now been tested for our amusement. Being able to turn on your other B&O products by simply grabbing the remote or setting an alarm for the desired time struck positive notes, and those bite-sized displays earned praise too. With automatic backlighting, built-in accelerometer, and full channel readouts, they ensured the minimum of strain for the user (which is probably still pretty high considering they’re tiny!). There wasn’t much to complain about, but at that price point you wouldn’t expect it either. Full hands-on gallery can be found at the read link.

Bang & Olufsen’s BeoVision 10: something awesome in the state of Denmark

Monday, October 19th, 2009

If you’re an HDTV buff with style, taste, and money to burn (and if you’re reading Engadget we have our doubts about at least two of the three) then you’ve probably been waiting impatiently for Bang & Olufsen to make this one official. The BeoVision 10 is a wall-mounted LCD flat screen that boasts 40-inches of real estate, a brushed aluminum frame, and bottom mounted speakers that are available in a variety of colors. As the company boasts, “every aspect of the design is thought through.” It also said something about “vægplacering,” the definition of which we will leave to your imagination. On sale now at the B & O store on Kongens Nytorv in central Copenhagen for £43,495 (roughly $71,000) — not shockingly expensive, as far as this company is concerned, but still far too dear for you. No word on stateside pricing or release date.
