A Wafer Thin Mint?

The new BeoVision 10 is the latest incarnation of the BeoVision 5 design theme but finally done in the style originally conceived - a TV which emulates a picture in all dimensions - even thickness. The set is a mere 7 cm thick.

A 200Hz Samsung screen with edge type LED backlights offers the best LCD screen yet seen on a B&O set with the advantages of VisionClear added to the mix.

The Beovision 10-40 is the first model in the range of sets designed primarily for wall mounting. To this end, the sets are very slim with a frame design design to accentuate the slimness and lightness of the television.

Sound is provided for by the provision of a 5 way speaker system with twin channels having tweeters and midrange units and a shared bass unit. Special attention has been given to the sound with a tuned bass port provided in such a way that the depth of the television is maintained but that bass performance is up to B&O standards.

As expected, the set offers full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) and a comprehensive sets of connections - 2 HDMI sockets are present and an internal digital connection is also present for the DVB-HD module, which is standard in the UK.

The customer merely has to decide which stand option is required, with either a slim 4mm wall mount which allows the set to be angled 45 degrees to either the left or right. Alternatively, a floor stand which is motorised for side to side motion is available with a manual vertical tilt possible.

Mounting Options

When launched, Bang & Olufsen produced a Motor Floor Stand and a simple Wall Bracket using the hinged device seen previously to position the rear of the TV close to the wall.

Beoworld says:

This is the Avant replacement. A set with style and poise with an excellent picture and good sound. We predict great things for this set, the first of what should prove to be a family of sets.
