The first Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10 TV just landed in London, and what a beaut’ this designer telly is. We’ve got up close with its aluminium frame, and taken a good gawp at the glossy screen.
What’s more, our hands-on shows you some of the neater design touches. Read on, see the pics and lust after one of the most expensive tellies in the world.
The new Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10 will set you back a cool £6,000, but that includes custom installation, a cutesy remote that’ll come pre-programmed with settings for your various set-top boxes, AV equipment and even home automation kit. All that, and a proprietary frame that’ll let the Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10 swing outwards from a wall from its edge, rather than the usual bulky bracket.
The screen up front is a full HD, 40 inch panel. It’s lit with LEDs from the side, and is astoundingly slim. Up from there’re built in speakers and a subwoofer. There are four 10W amps inside, and one 50W amp for the sub. The Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10 hides them well though, with inter-changeable grilles secured with hooks and magnets.
The screen itself is coated with glass, and has a non-reflective coating, but the real treat is the new Beo5 remote that controls the Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10. It’s like a mini TV itself, packing a circle of keys, as well as a touchscreen display capable of showing channel logos, or morphing to hold functions of other devices.
The remote’s screen senses when it’s being touched, and also clicks as you press down, a bit like the BlackBerry Storm and Storm 2. Check out our hands-on photos of it above. We warn you though, at £500 it’s enough to make your bank manager nervous.
