”Sony’s first 48-inch OLED is extraordinarily good.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 Product of the Year.

48 inch OLED – big tech made compact

Widely regarded as one of the finest screen technologies, OLED sets the standard for contrast and black levels that’s hard to beat. The only real downside has been a lack of smaller screens. Until now. With the Sony BRAVIA KE-48A9BU it’s now possible to get a 48 inch version of the award-winning BRAVIA OLED technology. This means you get all the OLED benefits, but now in a TV that fits your room.

BRAVIA OLED panel for the finest picture around
Backlighting technology is a thing of the past with OLED. Instead of using various arrays of LEDs to light an LCD display, OLED uses over eight million self-illuminating pixels for sensational image quality. With self-illuminating pixels, you get outstanding contrast. Blacks are far deeper than LED displays and corresponding whites much brighter. For the ultimate in realism, OLED is where it’s at.

X1 Ultimate with Pixel Contrast Booster maximises the potential of OLED
To extract the maximum potential for the OLED panel, this Sony 48 inch TV uses Sony’s most powerful processor – X1 Ultimate. This processor intelligently enhances the brightness of hundreds of different picture elements, giving incredibly realistic and detailed images. Pixel Contrast Booster maximises the potential of each pixel, getting the most lifelike and vibrant colour.

The smoothest images with X-Motion Clarity
Sony’s X-Motion Clarity is Sony’s flagship motion processor and takes OLED to the next level. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 48” TV offers enhanced realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies.

IMAX Enhanced brings the cinema home
Take the next step-up in picture quality by switching to IMAX Enhanced. Used with IMAX certified 4K HDR content, IMAX Enhanced uses their proprietary digital remastering technology (DMR) to deliver ultra-vivid images. If you want to recreate the look of the movie at the cinema, IMAX Enhanced gets you closer than ever.

Get the best out of Netflix, with Netflix Calibrated Mode
If you’re a movie fan and use Netflix, you’ll love Netflix Calibrated Mode. This setting bypasses many of the TVs processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker’s originally intended.

Sharpen up the sound with Acoustic Multi-Audio and Dolby Atmos
Sony’s unique Acoustic Multi-Audio speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. By placing two, sound positioning actuator speakers at the back of the TV, the sound precisely tracks the image. You get precision of sound, making the audio more life-like than ever. The speaker system is also compatible with Dolby Atmos – giving a more enveloping sound with Atmos recordings.

HDR support, including Dolby Vision
HDR maximises picture quality, bringing detail to the darkest areas of the picture as well as making the overall image look more life-like than ever. As well as HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony is also compatible with Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Very much an industry standard, Dolby Vision continually adjusts the picture for the most remarkable realism.

Smart Android TV
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. The Android platform brings more apps than any other smart TV platform, meaning you’ve got the widest choice of smart TV possible.

Voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony’s compatible, too. Apple AirPlay and Homekit compatibility makes it possible to integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can voice control via your existing Alexa device.

Super-slim, One Slate Concept design
Featuring a flush surface bezel design, the Sony KE-48A9BU has premium style to match its performance. With no visible speakers, this Sony OLED is as discreet as possible and makes the most of its compact dimensions. The aluminium pedestal stand complements the design and has cable management built-in – keeping the design as tidy as possible.

Enjoy the best in OLED TV, in any room, with the compact and stylish Sony BRAVIA KE-48A9BU.

Catch-up TV Apps may vary by region. The function and availability of apps is not covered by the manufacturer’s or Richer Sounds’ guarantee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Confusing software This is the second of this type of TV we have bought. It has the same brilliant picture as well as the annoying message, that can't be switched off, about turning off. This new one now has an annoying software issue whereby it keeps rebooting and won't switch on when the sky box is switched on, unlike the first one we have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sony! I absolutely love my new Sony TV. Great features, fantastic sound quality and a sharp picture. Easy to navigate for someone like me who struggles with tech’. The installation was easy to follow and a couple of clicks I was set up in no time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent picture but ….. Very good picture quality. The sound is ok but struggles with dialogue, to be fair a lot of television do but as this was sold on the acoustic sound feature, it is a tad disappointing. The real problem is Google Play and the Android features which are not intuitive and look outdated. Apple headphones do not seem to work with this tv despite many attempts to pair them. Ok if you are just seeking a good picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Oled tv The set was highly recommended by a trusted source and has exceeded our expectations in the picture quality and there are features yet to be explored. It was so easy to set up even though our existing soundbar was another maker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony at its best Been over a year since I purchased this TV and I could not be happier with it. Incredible picture quality, sound is fantastic and adjustable in many ways. Screen is as slim as it could be and no wasted space with visible speakers. Personally I can not see any possible reason to add a sound bar unless you want to sit in another room. Would I buy this machine again, yes I certainly would.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Picture Bouth this TV a few weeks ago and like all the functions, sound quality and the design. Only downside at the moment is we were told to connect a USB HDD hard drive for recording TV programmes. I bought a new USB HDD drive and have spent hours trying to get it to work. Its formatted but still says its not connected....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best quality TV I’ve had the tv for two weeks now. Fantastic picture and sound. Watching wildlife programmes is an utter pleasure. It is so well built. Excellent quality. Just remember that most programmes will look the same as on your previous tv. You’ll only notice the difference when viewing in HD or UHD. I would recommend this tv to anyone but remember it’s three times tge price of a UHD tv so tge choice is yours. Definitely go to Curry’s and look at the OLED screen next to UHD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture quality Brought the tv for the 2nd room because we had a Sony 2 years ago. This one is some much better, the picture quality is incredibly
Date published: 2022-04-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smart TV Most OLED TV's have great pictures, due to OLED display technology being the ultimate solution. However, sound is often compromised by the lack of volume in such thin display screens. What sets this TV apart from the rest is the innovative use of the screen as the cone of the 'loudspeaker'. The sound is so good that a sound bar is unnecessary except for the most discerning audiophile. The picture is perfect, but the sound quality gives this TV the edge over the competition.
Date published: 2022-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wasn't sure what difference the OLED would make Needed a new TV so went for this based on recommendation from my partner. The sharpness and quality of the TV is second to none. Fabulous for watching films and football ;) The control takes a bit of practice but navigation is easy once you've worked it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture quality and sound First TV purchase in over 10 years and not disappointed at all. Excellent picture definition, and sound for a TV that is so thin! No cables needed except for power, also leaves the room uncluttered

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Exactly the same "footprint" as out 12 year old 40" Sony (which never failed) but now 48" OLED just fits perfectly. Doddle to set up and delivers a great picture and sound
Date published: 2022-04-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expensive and annoying. I can’t fault the picture and sound on this TV but I am disappointed by the lack of UK streaming apps in the App Store. I frequently see adds for TVs with the android system bragging about the thousands of available apps but they haven’t even got BBC iPlayer. Apps not in the store can still be accessed via the built in “Sony select” app or via “YouView” but it’s fiddly and annoying. I sometimes wish I’d bought either the LG or Samsung equivalent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Telly Still new but very happy with picture and sound. Still learning about the features

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No interactive tv My elderly parents brought this TV and my was dad was disappointed that there was no interactive tv to it as he like to check local news and horse racing results
