For many years, we’ve admired, Loewe as a premium screen brand of choice. Offering high image quality, superior finish with the ability to offer control over Blu-Ray players, CCTV…etc. For those in the know…it’s been striving to fill the space vacated by Pioneer when it withdrew from the plasma market, back in the day.
Now we’re bringing this brand and range into our North East Showrooms. Available to view, test and order from Mid-September 2018.
Let’s introduce one of the latest family member -The Bild 3. It’s the cheapest, premium screen from the brand. The model featured here is the range topping 55-inch OLED.
Loewe Bild 3.55 OLED 4K HDR TV: Design and specification
Loewe televisions typically set a high bar for design. It’s chic and minimal. The screen features a forward facing speaker array, finished in a neat charcoal fabric. Loewe has resisted running it full width. This results in a less cluttered, more streamlined look. The characteristic circular display is used merely to signify power status. Branding is limited to a small tag on the top right of the ultra-thin bezel. The trim is aluminium.
Connectivity is par for the course. All four HDMIs are v2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliant; there’s also micro AV, a trio of USBs, Ethernet and digital audio output. There’s a choice of Freeview or generic HD satellite tuners. Bluetooth headphone support makes a virtue of personal listening.
The remote control is a weighty wand with an attractive hairline finish. It’s a class apart from lightweight TV doofers.
Loewe Bild 3.55 OLED 4K HDR TV: Picture Performance
Image quality is high. All the familiar characteristics of OLED are there – rich blacks and vibrant hues. Image presets consist of Home, Premium (an eco mode), Cinema, Shop and Personal. These become HDR Bright, HDR Dark and HDR Premium, when HDR content is detected. The Home mode has the best average APL, and looks great with both for SDR 4K from Sky Q, and regular HD.
HDR support covers HDR10, broadcast HLG and Dolby Vision. The good news is that the Bild 3.55’s HDR performance is impressive.
Loewe Bild 3.55 OLED 4K HDR TV: Audio Performance
That front facing speaker array pays dividends. The Bld 3.55 offers audio that’s immediately impressive. Power output is rated at 2x40w, while the stereo soundstage has surprising clarity. Inevitably, bass is limited – it’s only active from 100Hz up – but for everyday use, it’s well above average.
Loewe Bild 3.55 OLED 4K HDR TV: Verdict
The Loewe Bild 3.55 is an artful blend of high design and admirable AV performance. Image detail, black level and colour fidelity are all top notch.
