Slowly but surely, the BeoVision 8 is creeping up into big screen territory. Bang & Olufsen’s latest iteration, more casually known as the BV8-40, pulls those LCD TV edges out to 40-inches diagonally and features a lush 1,920 x 1,080 native resolution. Other specs include 500 nits of brightness, a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, six-millisecond response time, a digital TV tuner (for those in DVB regions) and a pretty swank set of internal speakers to boot. All we’re told regarding pricing is that the MSRP is “attractive,” but we get the feeling it’s only sexy to those who aren’t concerned with zeros and decimal places.
