”This Sony OLED is absolutely brilliant – it has a stunning design and a unique sound solution.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £1899

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 5 out of 5 by from Shockingly Good This is the biggest, brightest, sharpest, nicest, heaviest telly I have every owned. It replaced a Samsung 48HD telly, which was okay. Now I see what all the fuss was about with OLED, jeepers it is good. I have watched an episode of Star Trek on Netflix and the blacks are amazing, and the lights can be so bright it makes you squint. The depth and detail of HDR is amazing. If you can afford any of the good 4K HDR tellys, buy it, you will not be disappointed. I nearly bought the LG C8, another belter of a telly. WOW It is worth mentioning the sound. I have not plugged it into my hifi amplifier and I am really surprised at how good it is. Honestly, that is a big a surprise as the screen itself. Overall, and after 20 hours of ownership, I love this screen. Buy the best you can, I know I have and I love it. Why did I leave it so long?!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pictures and build quality Whilst I had decided some time ago that my next set would an OLED, I could not make my mind up on the price point I wanted to buy at. Ultimately I chose this Sony over the LG B7 as this set was being placed on a stand in our lounge and in terms of looks and quality of build it is in a different league, simply oozing quality - it looks good from all angle. Probably nothing much I can add to other reviews in terms of technical attributes, I will simply confirm that the picture performance is awesome from almost any source and the sound is very good for everyday watching - news, sport, TV drama and casual movie watching but the set does justifies further investment in an external sound system for the full movie experience in my opinion. One of the initial benefits I have found from the combination of Sony's sound technology and OLED's ability to do proper blacks is that with lights out cinema style, the picture just hangs in space, you simply do not see the bezel in the way you can on a traditional LED with a silver bezel. My value rating reflects the current typical price levels - at the original RRP of £3.5k, I doubt I would have purchased.

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.
