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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave 121 from Sony at its best Been over a year since I purchased this TV and I could not be happier with it. Incredible picture quality, sound is fantastic and adjustable in many ways. Screen is as slim as it could be and no wasted space with visible speakers. Personally I can not see any possible reason to add a sound bar unless you want to sit in another room. Would I buy this machine again, yes I certainly would.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jograh from Lovely Picture Bouth this TV a few weeks ago and like all the functions, sound quality and the design. Only downside at the moment is we were told to connect a USB HDD hard drive for recording TV programmes. I bought a new USB HDD drive and have spent hours trying to get it to work. Its formatted but still says its not connected....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smart1960 from Best quality TV I’ve had the tv for two weeks now. Fantastic picture and sound. Watching wildlife programmes is an utter pleasure. It is so well built. Excellent quality. Just remember that most programmes will look the same as on your previous tv. You’ll only notice the difference when viewing in HD or UHD. I would recommend this tv to anyone but remember it’s three times tge price of a UHD tv so tge choice is yours. Definitely go to Curry’s and look at the OLED screen next to UHD.
