An OLED screen that looks almost as good off as on, plus an innovative sound system you can’t see – the Sony KD55A1 delivers tomorrow’s technology today


OLED – self-illuminating pixels for the ultimate picture quality

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.

Ultimate picture quality with X1 Extreme processor - whatever the source
Sony's newly developed X1 Extreme processor has an impressive 40% more real-time processing than the already high-performing X1. What's more, this processor is smart enough the know the difference between a 4K UHD Blu-ray, Netflix 4K and USB streaming, to deliver the best possible image quality, whatever the source.

Highly advanced HDR
Object-Based HDR remaster analyses images and enhances both colour and textures for extraordinary realism and depth. Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR further enhances this by eliminating the 'banding' that can be seen on inferior TVs as the tone and shade gradually change. Now a sunset looks just like a true sunset rather than a graduated approximation.

Hear crystal-clear sound without seeing any speakers
Sony’s OLED doesn’t use conventional speakers, it simply makes the screen move with the sound! By using twin actuators at the rear of the screen, the whole surface acts as one, cohesive speaker. As well as improving the looks, it also means the sound is more accurately located to the image, giving more believable dialogue sync.

Powerful bass from built-in subwoofer
For the deepest bass notes, the Sony’s screen gets a little help from a built-in subwoofer. Cleverly hidden in the rear support stand, the subwoofer provides extra punch for action movies and soundtracks when called on.

Be immersed by the picture. Just the picture
Take a look at the front of this Sony 55” OLED TV and you’ll see no stand, no speakers and not even a ‘Sony’ badge. All you see is a finely framed screen, so you can concentrate on the class-leading picture quality with no distractions.

Multi-purpose stand
Supporting the screen is an ingenious pivoting stand design. Inside the stand is not only the subwoofer bass speaker but also all the connection sockets. Once connected, a flush fabric cover sits over the entire section, giving a clean, clutter free appearance that’s, almost, as smart as the front. If you’d rather wall mount the TV, then simply fold the stand flat against the rear of the TV and hang it up.

Android TV
Offering the slick interaction of the best smartphones, Android TV is one of the smartest content managers and providers to date. Boasting features such as GoogleCast, Google Play and Voice Search, this Sony is part TV and part giant smartphone.

Voice Search and Content Bar for effortless searching
Even with such a massive range of content, finding what you want is always easy. Voice Search means you simply say what you're looking for and let Android TV find it for you. The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show or video you're after. Call up the Content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, on demand, downloaded TV shows and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super TV After spending weeks checking out the OLED competition and reviews online I took the plunge and settled on the Sony 55" A1 from Richer Sounds Weybridge and wasn't disappointed with the super resolution, colour, viewing angle, etc. plus the efficient, friendly service and competitive price from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Picture Went in to buy a cheaper 55 inch 4K, but when I saw this TV in comparison I felt the difference in picture quality and built in sound system along with all the other applications you get with it warranted spending that bit much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV. This is the first TV I have bought that was impressive from the moment I turned it on. Blown away with the picture and sound quality, even without making any adjustments. Used it with it's own tuner, SkyQ , PS4 and 4k blu ray, with equally superb results on each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV Purchased this TV just under a month ago and it’s fantastic. The picture and colours are mind blowing. I have it connected to Sky Q and a Xbox One X. The picture on both are superb and the TV also handles the standard non HD channels excellently. Great TV from Sony! Great service from Richer Sounds Too! Ian at the Romford store was first class, thank you!
