”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.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps. 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 5 out of 5 by from New Sony tv Love my new Sony 48in tv great picture and sound quality very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV This is a great TV - an excellent picture and sound - with many useful features. It was easy to set up and works well with our Panasonic Freeview box which we use to record and playback programmes as an alternative to catch up (which works well from the TV). The TV automatically connects to the WiFi router/hub and tuned in to the available stations without any difficulty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tv but not good for GCN plus viewers Bought the tv a couple of weeks ago and overall we are pleased. The only slight issue is for fans of cycling and who use the GCN app, there is an issue with the tv and remote. Download the app all fine but the remote refuses to work. Contacted Sony support, who said there is an issue with TV and that app. Wish I had known that, as it seemed to work in the showroom locally. The way to solve it was download yet another remote control app to the iPad and use this to control the menu on the GCN app. Great customer service on this, but in this day and age, I expected better for a Tv that came out this year. Picture and sound quality great, but just a bit of a faff having two remotes…

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great looking TV, but disappointing. I purchased this TV 3 weeks ago and I’m not overwhelmed by the picture or sound quality, really disappointed especially as most reviews gave me the confidence that I would be getting a special quality TV for the price. Yes, there are a lot of apps and features to play with, however, after spending night after night trying to perfect the picture & sound quality I have come to the conclusion that it was the wrong purchase for me, nothing special at all. With all the HD TV’s on the market today, I could have purchased one at half the price with the same or better quality picture & sound. I may have to add a sound bar to perfect the sound I’m looking for. It looks great and is the ideal size for my lounge though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant This tv is worth the money as it delivers such great quality. Streaming is perfect and sound quality excellent too. Sony is a well known brand for a very good reason. I wouldn’t buy any other make now as in the past I have had different makes and models but none have compared to this oled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Always My Choice I bought this product because its Sony OLED, a first OLED for me. Had Sony TV's Since 1977, I am not changing now. A fantastic specification, fabulous colours, needle sharp and great sound. Only wish it came with a printed manual at the price. Problem solved online. Wish I could afford the calibration software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture I bought this Sony 48" just over two weeks ago and am very happy with it. The picture is beautiful. Bought this to replace a 40" Samsung that had stopped working properly. My wife is not keen on large TVs so I had some convincing to do but in the showroom the Sony stood out above the other makes and as this set sits low on our TV stand it is not much taller than our old one but it's obviously wider. My wife has come round though as, with the bigger picture, she can read text on screen more easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why I purchased my New Sony I had my old Sony for some years, but at the age of 85 my eyesight is failing and I began to have some difficulty is accurately seeing the picture on my existing TV. At my usual bi-annual eye examination, i asked my consultant about a new TV. Without hesitation he recommended the Oled Ultra HD system. Obviously I purchased Sony once again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sony tv pled Bravia Disappointed that we could not connect the new tv remote control to the tv and Bt box to use just the Sony control. I am also Disappointed with the sound as I was led to believe it would be a lot clearer, that’s why we had Sony.
Date published: 2021-10-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased overall, but some niggles Very pleased with the overall picture quality and build standard of the TV. We have invested in the latest OLED technology but are a bit disappointed to learn of possible screen burn from still images. The instruction manual says quite a bit about this but gives no guidance as to how long this effect takes to occur or if it is recoverable. Hence we do not know whether to watch old programmes with black stripes down the sides. We also think that the set could be improved by having an in-built RF (aerial) to HDMI converter, and also an In-built personal video recorder so that programmes could be easily recorded without the need for a separate unit. Overall however a very good modern TV that's not too large for the smaller lounge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Notably better The quality of the picture is excellent. This is particularly noticeable with wild life, which has a definite 3D feel. Far better than I saw when we owned a 3D Tv. Connectivity is also fab better than our previous (LD). Which caused us no end of difficulty trying to connect to concerts being broadcast by concert halls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent picture quality Sony vision and sound products have always been recognized for their outstanding build quality and performance, and this tv is no exemption. The initial setup was very straightforward using its built-in interactivity features. Picture quality is truly excellent using OLED technology. Sony's through-screen audio is also very impressive, to the point of abandoning my existing sound bar system in its favour. Built-in 'Free Sat' also means I no longer have a need for my existing 'Free Sat' tv box. No longer do I have unsightly cables and power plug's everywhere! A worthwhile power-saving becomes an added bonus. I'm highly delighted with this tv.
