Anytime I hear the name Bang & Olufsen; I know the device will be something that costs a lot of money. There are other things you can count on when you hear the B&O name as well, like style and quality sound. Back during CES Bang & Olufsen announced a new series called B&O Play that would be less expensive consumer devices.
One of the first in the series was the BeoPlay V1 TV and today a leaked photo of the TV has surfaced. It shows an average looking TV with large integrated sound bar attached to a rather cheap looking metal curved stand. We have a few details about the set, including that will come in 32 or 40-inch versions.
The TVs will include DLNA functionality along with five HDMI ports. The connectivity also includes a single USB port and integrated 5.1 surround sound. The TVs are expected to officially launch on May 5. Even though this is the cheap series for B&O, the 32-inch screen will sell for $3170 with 40-inch selling for $3831.
