Bang & Olufsen unveils $18k BeoVision 7-55 55-inch TV

Bang & Olufsen is a well-known maker of high-end home theater and audio gear that carry huge price tags. The company has a line of HDTVs for instance that cost many times what you can walk into your local Walmart and pick a set up for. The last time we talked about a BeoVision HDTV it was the BeoVision 10 and sold for almost $9,000.

The latest offering in the BeoVision line is the BeoVision 7 55-inch HDTV, which complements the 40-inch version of the same set already available. The new 55-inch HDTV has a 120Hz refresh rate and uses the BeoSystem 3 video engine for superior signal processing.

The screen is LED backlit and has local dimming for greater contrast. Other features of the TV include an integrated Blu-ray player and a built-in sound bar with digital sound. The BeoVision 7-55 can be had with a low or a high stand that are both motorized. Availability is set for late November for $18,700 including the floor stand and center speaker.
