    I have heard rumors about a new 40" Loewe CRT TV on the way.

    Is this any more than a rumor?

    Considering that most (if not all) manufacturers have problems making a 36" model, it seems strange that Loewe havn't even attempted a 36" model and bring out a 40".

    But in light of the performance of their 32" models, I would certainly be interested.

    Any info appreciated

    Hi Jon,the best info I have found is at www.loewefaq.blogspot.com - and `sensory science` the link is on their site as well.The Loewe sounds real nice :D seems it is a 38" tube,weighs in at 210 lbs :eek: and be all reports is stunning,all manner of connections and scan rates etc,basically what ever you have it will handle,I think US price is around $4500 to $5000 but that i`snt cast iron and I`ve heard of a Jan` release date here,but trying to get anyone to confirm that is :confused: I too am in the market for this bad boy,would just like to see one.

    Hello,the tv is definitely a 40",and was due for release in October.It has been delayed until the new year,according to Linn.Price quoted from a respectable dealer was around £3000-£3500.Will it have a dedicated stand,and will it be a (slightly)retrograde step watching a non-flat screen again ?.

    So are you saying that its not going to have a 'flat' screen.

    I did manage to get hold of 'Linn' who do have some details about it... Well, they know how big its going to be...

    Its 1045(w)x765(h)x635(d)

    Put that in perspective to my Sony FS70 which is already a whopper and thats only 972x613x591

    Its going to be HUGE, as whilst its not that much wider, its going to be 150mm taller..

    They don't know how heavy its going to be.. But if the tube is over 200lbs, it means that its already heavier than the Sony ever without the chassis, electronics, PSU etc...

    I think that I will be giving that a miss!!!

    i must have done this 5 times in the last 15 months!!!!!!!!
    40' thomson high def' tube as used in the usa.
    it looks exactly like the the silver acconda but bigger.
    the tube is quite flat but not flat,flat.
    it will have a proper stand as an option.


    rumours of sony 40' wega coming in may02 still very strong, but still to be confirmed.

    Exactly as MO says and I'll add we believe it's shipping in the UK in mid-November.

    Lack of a flat tube is actually a bonus IMHO. We might actually get some decent geometry.
