"All of the inherent qualities of OLED combined with the picture processing smarts of Sony equals an utterly stunning television." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £3500.
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.
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.
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.
Please note, when setting up the A1 OLED TV the foot stand has an unlocking clip that needs to be released before it will pull out. If the foot stand is forced out without using this release clip correctly the TV will suffer major damage.
