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.

The best in vision, sound and style – the Sony KD55A1 has it all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture Sony has a great picture but the sound is not as great as I would have liked. I think unless you have a 4K feed the sound varies. Also a little bit of glare from the window

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a phenominal 55" OLED 4K HD TV: We buy all our electrical products at 'Richers Sounds' and have never been disappointed. We have bought many TV's over the years and our last Sony Bravia 40" is still going strong after 7 years and no problems whatsoever. We just wanted to have a 'life changing experience' and bought this amazing TV which has a mind blowingly good picture and the integral sound system on the screen has to be heard to be believed. Absolutely no regrets and can wholeheartedly recommend the Sony 55 inch OLED 4K Ultra HD. Buy it and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture quality and sound A brilliant TV. Good style and wonderful experience watching programmes. It is worth the price. I would recommend this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bloomin awesome telly Having read some fairly glowing reviews for this item I had high hopes and I've not been disappointed. Having recently bought a 50 inch Samsung TV in the last 6 months that just didn't cut it when it came to fast moving footage (lots of horrible triple image artefacts) I was a little apprehensive. However, I've tried all sorts of stuff inclduing Planet Earth II UHD on a 4K blu-ray player, Passengers blu-ray and good old fashioned Where Eagles Dare on DVD and I'm happy. UHD blu-ray is amazing and you can easily tell the difference between it and regular blu-ray. There is negligible picture judder (the Samsung struggled to keep up, for example, with the Imperial Shuttle landing-in-fields sequence in Rogue One, no such problems with this Sony). SD DVD footage is not as good obviously but still very watchable. Streaming services such as Netflix and Red Bull TV are pretty much impeccable too. Settings out of the box are spot on bar Live Colour which is a tad over the top but easily remedied by dropping the setting a level. The UI is probably this units only weakness, particularly compared to the elegant simplicity of the Samsung, plus there is no NowTV support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all rounder I’ve had this for just over a week and so far so good, great picture and a pretty decent sound from a tv for a change. Android TV a little laggy & I wish the remote was either Bluetooth or WiFi
Date published: 2018-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture (if SD viewing is avoided) For: The picture on this tv is fantastic - great contrast (as I’m sure you’d expect with all OLEDs) and the TVs design looks great both wall mounted (doesn’t sit flat against a wall, but appears to be floating slightly off it) and sitting on its (kick-)stand. Against: Standard definition looks terrible (not sure whether this is due to a subconscious comparison to the great 4K picture) and at times smart features feel marginally slow (for such an expensive TV). Also (surprisingly for an Android TV with Chromecast built in), this TV cannot be controlled by Google Home (but strangely can be controlled by Amazon Echo). Neither For nor Against: The picture isn’t as bright as the QLED Samsung TVs - although personally I find these TVs too bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable picture quality and sound We bought this TV upgrading from a 14 year old 32 inch set. WOW! The sound is amazing. The demo showed people talking and you can hear the sound coming from the mouth of the one talking! Picture quality is excellent. The TV looks good with no frame and can be wall mounted or freestanding with a sort of picture frame stand built onto the back. We had made up our minds on the model we wanted and had looked at the set in Currys. Before deciding to buy my son had recommend trying Richer Sounds where we got the same model for £320 pounds less. Really recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture and sound quality. This is probably the best TV out there currently and the picture and sound quality are excellent, no need for a sound bar.
