Measuring 65 inches, the Bang & Olufsen BeoVision Eclipse ($15,000) is the smallest TV on our list, but don’t let that make you think it’s any less worthy as your Sunday centerpiece. Coming from a brand primarily known for hi-fi equipment has its advantages, so it’s no surprise that the Eclipse features audio that is more than just an afterthought.
The 4K OLED television—the Eclipse is the first Bang & Olufsen television to include a screen made by partner LG—features a large sound bar that seems to float, as the screen’s glass stretches below the sound bar, which itself extends beyond the width of the screen. The array’s center channel—which was specifically optimized for reproduction of human voices—consists of a 50-watt central tweeter and a cluster of three 100-watt midrange/woofer drivers. Each stereo channel is handled by a 50-watt full-range driver. All of this means that you won’t need a separate sound system to get the big, room-filling sound you’ll need for a big game get-together.
The Eclipse doesn’t lack in the picture department either. Its OLED screen delivers absolute blacks and supports Dolby Vision HDR for improved color contrast. And no matter where the party is centered, an Eclipse mounted to one of Bang & Olufsen’s signature moving stands can be rotated and repositioned to face the ideal viewing angle.
The Eclipse was released in August and is currently available for purchase.
