EXCLUSIVE: Sub $25K Motorised Loewe 77″ OLED UHD TV Being Snapped Up In OZ
The big 77” TV market has just got a new entrant and the entire shipment of the all-new Loewe Bild 7 OLED TV has sold out despite Indi Imports dropping several retailers as resellers.
Launched at IFA the first containers of the new graphite aluminium Bild 7 have been snapped up by Bose dealers after importer Indy Imports decided to move sales from select specialist channel retailers Tivoli, Klapp and Audio Trends to a new network of resellers.
The new TV will also be sold by The Lifestyle Store in Sydney as well as via Rio Sound and Vision in Melbourne.
Competing up against the $30,000 Panasonic OLED TV and more expensive large screen TV offerings from LG and Samsung the new TV has been praised by reviewers following its launch at IFA.
According to Paul Riachi the CEO of Indi Imports more than 60 of the new 77” TV’s were delivered to retailers this week and that he has back orders for additional stock which will arrive in the new year.
Trusted Reviews said of the new TV “For starters, there’s a lovely metallic crispness to everything, from the distinctive circular Loewe ‘eye’ LED and IR receiver below the screen, right through to the impressively robust rear panel”.
They added “It’s seriously well built. Even though the majority of the screen is insanely thin in that way only OLED technology can manage, I never felt scared of snapping it – which is the worry I’ve had with a number of other super-thin OLED TVs”.
The Ultra HD OLED screen measures just 9mm on the ruler, and can handle HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG content. Basically, it will play anything you can throw at it said Trusted Reviews.
Loewe’s own picture processing technology works behind the scenes to ensure that what you’re viewing is presented in the best possible way.
Also built in is a soundbar that pumps out 120 Watts of audio from underneath the screen when you turn the TV on.
For those who want to ramp up the sound, the Bild 7.77 has a built-in 5.1 surround-sound decoder, so you can directly connect it to speakers without the need for a bulky AV receiver.
With a TV that looks as good as the Bild 7.77, you’ll want to be able to see it no matter where you put it in the room, or if you get up and move around. To resolve this, Loewe has built in a motorised table or floor stand, which lets you move it to any position using the remote control.
Alternatively, you can get the wall mount and hang it up like the work of art it is.
Connections include four HDMI, three USB and Bluetooth for streaming audio to the TV, or back out to Bluetooth headphones. There’s also a built-in digital TV recorder with 1TB of storage space.
The new TV is set to retail for sub $25,000 in Australia despite it being German and European Made.
