  • Re: Does anybody know why B&O has got such a bad name ?

    Surely the bottom line is that whether it be in the audio,or video,arena,a B & O product should not be inferior in performance to comparably priced products. To say that there are no aesthetically pleasing,well built audio/visual products from other manufacturers is somewhat shortsighted. One can be an "audiophile",and be interested in

  • Re: BeoVision 7-40 Mark III - Customer Review

    A really interesting thread. I may well be accused of being biased,but I have a Pioneer LX608. A previous contributor stated that he saw judder on a Pioneer Kuro. Given the extensive user adjustments available on these models,judder would be indicative of an incorrect setting of the Drive mode,or Pro Cinema options.The Pioneer Kuro can handle 1080p24fps

  • Re: Full HD: Beovision 7 40 or Beovision 4 50?

    Mico: Another question is that current Full HD systems (both LCD and Plasma) are not very competent when they are dealing with standard DVB signal. That is why I have not upgraded my HD Ready system to a Full HD one. If you have HD sources this issue is obsolete. I would have to disagree. I found the PQ of Freeview (DVB-T) on the BV9 to be excellent

  • Re: BV7-40 Mark II v BV7-40 Mark III

    I understood the perceived wisdom to be that the benefit of full HD(1080p) on a panel under 50" would be difficult to notice especially as one moved away from the screen to a "normal" viewing distance. Perhaps B & O has given in to the apparent market demand for full HD TVs with the BV7 MK111,rather than release an updated,Beosystem

  • Re: Beovision 7 verses 9

    I have always been given to understand that Manufacturers' quoted Contrast Ratios have been found to be grossly optimistic when the relevent TV has been tested in the lab. Does B & O quote realistic data? The BV7 Mk111 would have to be a significant improvement over the Mk11,which I found to be disappointing in it's PQ,to sway me away from

  • Re: Beovision 7 verses 9

    Notwithstanding the fact that the model has recently been superceded,with that kind of discount,it makes one wonder what the "mark up" is on a BV9. Either enormous,or the dealer needs income quickly. Either way,snap it up quick!

  • Re: Blu-Ray / HD-DVD

    All Blu-Ray Players sold after 31/10/07 must accord with the new Profile 1.1,so one would need to verify that a potential purchase is not obsolete stock. Both Blu-Ray,and HD,DVD Players will play SD DVDs,but whether it would be to the same quality as a high quality standard DVD Player is debateable. HD DVD Players have tended to be substantially cheaper

  • Re: bv7-40 uk price

    I was told by my dealer that there was no increase on the price of the Mk11. However,B & O are now shipping both the BV7 Mk111,and BV9,without a remote control. They have quoted me £150 for a Beo4,and £375 for a Beo5. I feel that given the TV's price a Beo4 should be included as standard,with an option to upgrade the remote control

  • Re: DVB-T Module-- re subtitles.

    Keith, thanks for you advices. My initial post was based on my demo in April of my dealer's BV9. He subsequently advised me that there was a problem with his TV,particularly with recording subtitles,which was subsequently corrected by a software update. Regards, Terry.

  • Re: BV7-40 mkIII 100Hz?

    The Loewe Individual Compose is substantially cheaper than a BV7,and is available in both 40",and 46" size panels,with the 40" model,with floorstanding speakers costing about £3250. The current edition of the UK magazine "What Video & High-Definition TV" has a generally very favourable review of the 40" Individual
