    Source - Loewe unveils its first OLED TV, price starts at 4990 Euro - FlatpanelsHD

    Using LG panels and surprisingly inexpensive for a Loewe TV. Given Loewe's prowess with audio it should sound good and their picture processing is normally very good. Hopefully motion handling is an area they have focused on. The TV has an anti reflection coating on the screen. The sound bar is rated at 120w consisting of 6 high/mid range drivers and 4 bass drivers. The UI has been updated after listening to customer feedback but it's hard to spot any significant changes in the above image.

    I am very tempted by the LG E6 but I think I will wait to see this TV in action before I make a purchase.

    You can get a 65E6 for £200 more than there 55" by the time these come out the E6 might even be cheaper an extra £1500 for the same size. I would be interested to see how it peforms however could be a cracker, depends if they get uniform panels from LG tho

    Loewe bild 7 - UHD OLED 4K Display mit Soundbar


    Originaly from Loewe:

    "Perfection of sound and design

    The theatre begins when switching on bild 7, the screen automatically moves upwards on a series of motors unveiling a slim and yet powerful soundbar. With an incredible output of 120 watts, from six drivers and four passive bass diaphragms, the device produces dynamic, precise, room-filling sound for an unprecedented entertainment experience.. Switch off bild 7 and the screen silently lowers back down discreetly hiding the soundbar, leaving just the minimal glass screen visible.



    With audio quality this good and integrated Bluetooth technology, it’s of course simple to stream audio content to bild 7 via a smartphone or tablet.



    The design of the bild 7 is characterised by pure understatement. Aesthetically light and minimalistic. At less than 7 mm thick, the display is slimmer than most smartphones. Manufactured using the finest materials with an exquisite level of finish, Loewe bild 7 perfectly complements the world’s best interiors.

    An elegant fabric conceals the connectors and cables on the rear of the TV allowing bild 7 to look great from 360 degrees enabling a wide choice of placement options with larger rooms.



    The beautifully detailed and considered design also applies to the user interface which features sophisticated modern graphics and strong user centric design principles making operation of the TV a pure delight.





    The new Loewe bild 7 will be released in September this year and comes in screen sizes of 55 and 65 inches with price points of 4990,- and 6990,- Euro. All TV devices are delivered with a wall bracket as standard. . A range of stunning co-ordinated stands, specially designed for bild 7, are available as options including motorised floor and table stands and a swivelling wall Mount"

    Its great to see other OLED's coming to the market soon....not too sure about the price though. Quite abit more espensive than the LG's and no Dolby Vision too i'd imagine.

    Is LG trying to make the ultimate TV by copying what their competitors can do with Oled? They fixed the near black after allowing Panasonic to use Oled. Why does it seem that they only allow one company at a time, it would be great to have Panasonic do another model at a lower price.

    Have LG got the new plant open yet? They need to bring down prices even more especially on the 65" model

    We know nothing !!! about this one. HDR? 3D? Dolby Vision? But it's so beautiful :) ...... and cheaper than that LG E or G series.
    But we all know for Loewe build-quality - it last forever...
    I never had Loewe before, but this is the first time im thinking about it.

    Yes, this TV has really got my juices flowing, like you @Joshy I have never owned one, but admired them from afar - this might just be the model where I take the plunge. Looks really stunning. Just waiting for release information from my dealer.

    The picture at 1.11 timestamp on that video, looks positively 3D woah

    well i have had the individual compose, the slime frame with the contrast screen and recently had the new one 55" but had a few issues with that so now have the art UHD 48" it really has a breathtaking picture.

    The motion handling colours even backlight zero clouding and deep blacks give for a real good movie experience and it's upscaling is beyond words.

    Another bonus is the looks but the sound quality puts alot of these tvs to shame the clarity and bass is amazing.

    The upcoming oled is really going to take it to another level, as much as people rave about the lgs im not a fan of lgs picture processing or motion compensation.

    Loewes latest picture processor however takes movement of motion to a level i haven't seen on no other make of tv, no motion blur razor sharp but natural looking picture.

    this is going to be the tv which will definitely make a mark.

    If my next cz952b is not issue free it's refund time and I will investigate these. Build quality used to be in a class of its own.

    If you've never owned a Loewe how do you know they last forever? I don't know anyone who's owned a Loewe tv and for me they have always been a brand more about form than function: and overpriced for what they do.

    I knew someone who owned Loewe equipment and it was very well build (Bilt? ;)) plus small things that made it easier to use.
    Hence my interest.

    I've been using Loewe TVs for around fifteen years now. Their CRTs were the best of the best. They aren't cheap but that is reflected in the build quality, slim remote control, natural picture, simple to use UI and good built in audio. I still have a Loewe CRT in use with my retro gear.
    I have also owned various Loewe LCDs although I did briefly detour to a Sony but couldn't stomach the terrible sound quality and it was gone within days.
    I've passed on my Loewe sets to family or friends and they are still working fine.
    Loewe also include a five year warranty which shows confidence in their products.
    Form over function is hardly something that can be applied to Loewe stuff it's popular with installers for home automation and the expansion options they offer. Even fifteen years ago you could add Dolby surround, VGA and web browsers to their CRT TVs.

    Adding more options for OLED TVs is good for the market, more choice and more competition.

    Fair points. I have to admit not knowing a lot about Loewe tv's. Apart from reading reviews in specialist magazines and comparing with other brands. I wasn't all that impressed with a Loewe crt vs Sony way back in 1999 when I worked in the tv dept at John Lewis. For the relative specs and performance they seemed, to me at least, to be over priced and under specced. I'm certainly no authority mind you!

    Who wants to own a tv for 10-15 years, i'd rather it packed up after five years so i can go and buy a new one. :)

    Auld retro gamers like me want to keep CRTs around for our consoles and Laserdiscs. I'm hoarding four at the moment!
