Bang & Olufsen adds oak option to BeoVision Eclipse OLED TV

27 Feb 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

Bang & Olufsen, the luxury TV manufacturer, has today unveiled the BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition that comes with a handmade speaker cover in oak. The oak cover can also be retro-fitted on existing Eclipse TVs.

Denmark’s Bang & Olufsen launched its first OLED TV in late 2017 through a partnership with LG Electronics. It comes complete with 4K, Dolby Vision, and a bold, elegant design.

The company is now adding an oak option to the speaker cover. It has again been designed by Torsten Valeur, David Lewis Designers, and is handmade. Bang & Olufsen has a long-standing tradition of using wood in its product design. Most recently, the company used oak wood on its BeoLab 18 and BeoLab 50 speakers.

- “We feel obliged to keep innovating the use of a material that has played an integral part in our products since 1925. Oak is a material that patinates beautifully, and by adding this option to our flagship TV we reinforce our commitment to provide people with the flexibility to match our designs to their personal interior style,” said Kresten Bjřrn Krab-Bjerre, Senior Concept Lead at Bang & Olufsen.

The company further explains that the oak cover is made to ensure full acoustic transparency for the speakers. Each cover is made from “seven thin layers of veneer that is combined, stacked, pressure molded and hand sanded in a slight curvature to match the speaker front. The veneer is then covered by one piece of solid oak with horizontal carvings and finished with solid oak strips that are meticulously hand sorted to match by the grain for a natural finish”.

Behind the oak cover is a 450W 3-channel ‘SoundCenter’ that ”surpasses most integrated solutions and soundbars on the market,” the company said. We certainly found this claim to be true when we reviewed the product in October 2017. There is also a 7.1 surround decoder integrated. In addition, it excels in picture quality, building on LG’s OLED foundation. The rest of Bang & Olufsen’s TV line-up currently builds on LCD technology.

The oak cover can be retro-fitted on existing 55 and 65-inch BeoVision Eclipse TVs out there, starting April 2018. In addition, you have the choice of aluminum and fabric speaker covers.
