B&O's Glimpse of the Future

The 1966 sci-fi film Fahrenheit 451 was the first to feature a futuristic, flat, widescreen TV hanging on the wall. Science fiction has now become reality with the release of the Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 5, the first plazma TV to hit the market complete with integrated tuner and speakers. B&O designer David Lewis drew on the art world for his inspiration in packaging the BeoVision 5, encompassing both picture and sound into the unique frame - the form factor enables many diverse placement possibilities, including a wall bracket or floor stand, or simply to lean it against the wall, as Lewis originally intended. Incorporating high quality, active loudspeakers and a Dolby Digital surround sound decoder, the unit offers exceptional cinema quality sound without the addition of further speakers. If you wish to build the full surround sound system, the quality of the internal speakers means you do not require an additional centre speaker. Priced at AUS$39,500, further details from www.bangolufsen.com
