Undisputed Heavyweight Champ

Video experts may debate whether or not Bang & Olufsen’s BeoVision 4 is the greatest television ever created, but it is without a doubt the most spectacular. The 103-inch plasma screen delivers a picture large enough to dominate any living room. When power is activated, the TV rises to a position high enough for comfortable viewing. This motion reveals a BeoLab 10 center speaker, which automatically moves forward so it is directly beneath the screen. The motorized stand tilts and turns the screen to the optimum viewing angle—an essential feature, given the combined 1,200-pound weight of the screen and stand. The TV requires two AC circuits: a 220-volt and a 110-volt. Because of the BeoVision 4’s size, weight, and technical demands, prospective owners must fill out a questionnaire then schedule a site visit by B&O technicians to ensure that the home’s infrastructure is capable of supporting the TV. The wall-mount version is $93,050 and the stand-mounted is $111,805. B&O’s unique Beo5 touchscreen remote control is supplied as a standard feature, and matching BeoLab speakers are optional.
