”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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Colour Range, with Deep Blacks Make no mistake: this is a pricey 48" TV. You can quite easily get 55" for less. What you get for that extra cost is a crystal clear picture with vibrant colours and deep blacks. Connectivity options are pretty standard: 4 HDMIs and a composite (with an annoyingly proprietary mapping to the bands on a standard jack: you'll need something made for Sony TVs). Optical out is an option if you can't make use of the (e)ARC connection for audio, but the sound from the internal speaks is surprisingly good for something so slim. Can't really say much about the smart features, since I don't make use of them, but the configuration options are well laid out. I had to hold my breath a little when actually hitting the button to part with the cash for this, but have no regrets that I did.
