LG has been beating the OLED drum for some time, recently introducing huge and innovative displays that appear like wallpaper, and some that can even be rolled up. Now it has brought some boutique audio expertise in house, teaming up with Bang & Olufsen to produce an unsurprisingly elegant (and pricy) 4K TV and sound system.

The BeoVision Eclipse TV is the first product that LG and Bang & Olufsen have created since forming a partnership in March 2016, and the first TV to carry the Bang & Olufsen name. Since then, two teams of engineers have worked to marry LG's high-grade OLED panels with Bang & Olufsen's much-reputed sound quality.

The 4K, HDR TV looks like a stunner, but also a little bit odd at the same time. It comes in both 55 and 65 inches with a big and bold soundbar bolted on the front. Covered in anodized aluminum, this soundbar packs a 450-watt, three channel speaker system and hooks up over Bluetooth, AirPlay or Chromecast to stream music directly from mobile devices.

And the fanciness doesn't stop with the TV itself. When it comes to mounting, owners will have the option of either a manual wall bracket, a motorized wall bracket that can be remotely swiveled 60 degrees, and a motorized floor stand that can be swiveled 90 degrees to either side.

As is to be expected with anything bearing the Bang & Olufsen name, all this doesn't come cheap. The BeoVision Eclipse TV will go on sale this month and according to CNET, the 55-inch model will be priced at £8,290 and the 65-inch model at £11,590 (US$10,715 and $15,000).
