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.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning TV I spent a month debating buying this TV, mainly due to the high price tag but I'm so glad i took the leap. The TV picture is stunning as is the sound and the aesthetics looks great in my modern living room. The Remote is not what i would expect from a £3k Tv but thats a small detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Brilliant There's no other way of putting it, this is an absolute cracker of a TV. The design is brilliant and it's great how all you see is the picture and nothing else, although you may need a wide and deep cabinet to put it on. Picture quality is top draw and the OLED tech does a great job, instantly you can see this beats LED TVs for depth and clarity. The sound is also superb and much better than from rival OLED TVs, it emmanats right from the screen and it really works, with a subwoofer giving it added punch. People have said the Android OS isn't up to scratch but I think it actually does a really good job - well laid out and easy to navigate. Plus the remote does a nice job of combining a traditional layout with the voice recognition. It doesn't look like the most interesting remote but it feels good in the hand. Build quality is fantastic and it feels like this is something that will last, other OLEDs just felt too flimsy and wobbly on their stands. Overall, I can't recommend this enough, it's expensive yes, but is a worthwhile investment and you'll be future-proofed for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful TV but not so keen on A frame stand Love the TV, but not taken with stand. Due to its position on cabinet top, TV had to be on front edge to allow ease of remote use. If pushed back, then remote had to be lifted. Also without normal stand, TV overlapped cabinet and with tilt back, didn't please aesthetically. Hence we bought new cabinet/pedestal stand which fulfilled our preferences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A stunning TV. Went into Richer Sounds not to buy this, but was blown away with the picture on this set. Innovative design, with speaker in rear strut. Outstanding !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing screen, and solid build. My LG B7 stopped working so, instead of replacing it, Richer Sounds very nicely suggested that I can get another product, so I opted for the Sony A1 - the picture quality is about the same as the LG (which is amazing!), but the sound is what sets it apart - the vibrating screen is so cool!..soon after getting this tv, Richer Sounds phoned me to say the price had dropped, so they would refund me the difference..what other company would do that for their customer?? Amazing service guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb image on all sources (almost) The image processing on this TV is the best I have seen. HD looks good and UHD superb. I can't comment on the sound coming from the screen as we use external speakers. I wondered if the "easel" design might be a bit weird with the TV leaning back but it's negligible and you don't really notice it. What you do notice is deep blacks and colours ranging from subtle to vibrant - the TV produces the full range faultlessly. Use it with an HDR source and the picture is detailed and realistic. Two things to be aware of if you are considering this TV. Sony's 4K TVs have suffered buggy updates in the past so it's best to turn "automatic updates" off and only download them once they are reported to be safe. Also the playback through USB - home movies for example - can be very temperamental and sometimes refuse to,play or even see the USB stick and its files. This isn't a deal breaker but it can be very frustrating. Overall a real winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant TV Absolutely superb picture and very easy to set up and use. The sound is very good for a flat screen. Haven't used too many of the features yet so can't comment too much on them. I understand that the user interface may not be to everyone's taste but if you already have a Sony TV it will feel very familiar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best picture quality I’ve seen but a slow android interface. Great tv, comes to life with 4K HDR content. Sadly the Android operating system feels underpowered or not well optimised as it can become laggy to navigate the menus.
