You may have mentioned some exceptions but even some of these are part of bigger companies that sell mass market products.
This is an example of what I’m saying. Loewe is using an LG OLED panel just like all the others. The picture difference is negligible for almost 95% of people. Some will argue it’s also better than Leowe. The OS is certainly better in the others. The TV is also supported better by the bigger manufacturers. And yet the cost is a fraction of Loewe.@dr no , I accept quality standalone companies are a rarity these days. I can only speak about my own experience and the Loewe Bild 7.55 produces a superb picture in the three years I’ve had it and I do not regret my decision to spend so much. At the time I was considering an LG OLED but the quality seemed so variable it put me off. I agree prices for some high-end kit seem excessive but that’s been the case for decades.
The marketing speak was nothing more than that. This debate has been had already so we will agree to disagree.@dr no , I don't wish to get into a debate about this but Loewe pointed out that they used specially selected OLED panels and not the standard production line. But the panel is just the end of the signal and how well that signal is processed is important. That could mean the components are of higher quality than LG's. The user interface is excellent and apps such as YouTube are also of a high quality - far better than Sky for example.
Loewe did a cheaper end Bild 1 range: personally I think the range was too large and they should have concentrated on core models with a reduced Workforce. I fear however that overcoming customer concerns that they won’t fold again won’t be easy although the backers do appear to be well funded. Off topic I reckon B&O will pull out of the TV marketYou may have mentioned some exceptions but even some of these are part of bigger companies that sell mass market products.
Premium products should be part of a range that targets a wide demographic.
On the whole high ticket premium products ALONE will not make sustainable business model. Especially as most products, cheap end or expensive end, mostly use off the shelf components anyway these days. IMO
I agree however I don’t think that any old warranties will ever be honoured: this is a new Company
The only warranty would be that provided by the dealer itself that they purchase separately. There is no way a Company like Skytec would take on existing liabilities for the old Co. which went bankrupt (no doubt there is also a lot of suppliers who wont have been paid); mine is in its 3rd year now so main thing is that it looks as if a future supply chain for spares will be created which is good news.So not even the Loewe TVs currently being offered by Loewe Manchester then? Shame. Doesn't apply to me. Mine is now 3 years old and still wonderful.
