Following in the footsteps of an award-winner, the Sony BRAVIA XR-55A80KU is a winner once again.

Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR just keeps getting better
Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR marries AI to cognitive intelligence for a picture balance that’s best suited to humans rather than just algorithms. The processor analyses every element of the picture to give a sharper image with greater depth and realism. The latest processor features Depth Control and Flexible Colour Contrast Control for even greater depth and colour vibrancy with this Sony 55 inch TV.

OLED optimised by XR
With over eight million, self-illuminating pixels, OLED already offers sensational picture quality. For the deepest blacks and greatest contrast, it’s hard to do any better. Add XR Picture Processing, however, and you get OLED optimised. The powerful XR Picture processing maximises OLED’s potential, meaning you get an even brighter and more detailed picture.

XR Triluminos Pro and OLED Contrast Pro for ultimate colour
XR Triluminos Pro combines with XR Colour to deliver the truest and most natural colour. For the highest levels of contrast and detail, XR OLED Contrast Pro adjusts the brightness to give brighter peaks and more detail within darker areas.

The smoothest images with XR OLED Motion and 4K XR Smoothing
Keeping the millions of pixels in check, Sony’s XR OLED Motion technology keeps the action flowing smoothly. Minimising blur, the powerful processing strikes the perfect balance between ultimate detail and the smoothest motion. 4K XR Smoothing reduces picture banding, giving a more lifelike and natural flow to images.

Picture quality as the creator intended – NCM, Dolby Vision and Calman Ready
Compatible with a wide range of technologies, the XR-55A80KU reproduces visuals, just as the creator intended. If you’re a movie fan, you’ll love NCM (Netflix Calibrated Mode). NCM bypasses many of the TV’s processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker intended. Calman Ready, this TV is also ideal for those who wish to calibrate their TV to truly professional levels.

Acoustic Surface Audio+ for perfect sound to picture sync
Sony’s unique Acoustic Surface Audio+ speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. Triple, vibrating actuators positioned behind the screen pinpoint the sound to the action, heightening the sense of connection and realism. With left and right subwoofers fitted, Acoustic Surface Audio+ gives a bottom-end boost, too.

XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling for enveloping sound
Part of the Cognitive Processor XR, XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling takes a regular audio signal and creates a virtual surround sound effect – making you feel more immersed in the action.

Works with BRAVIA CAM*
The optional BRAVIA CAM (extra cost option), is the innovative new camera that does so much more than video calls. BRAVIA CAM recognises where viewers are sitting and optimises the picture and sound to suit. It also facilitates the use of gesture control. All this plus it still functions with your TV to make it the ultimate device for video calls.

*Gesture control and auto optimisation function due later in 2022

Google TV**
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Sony TV’s smart features a breeze. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watchlist via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV. You can also access the Sony’s picture, sound and other TV settings – keeping all you need under one ‘roof’.

**This Sony BRAVIA TV features the Youview catch-up TV service, which includes BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 & My5.

Hands-free voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. The built-in mic lets you search, hands-free. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony is 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.

The perfect partner for your PS5
Combine this BRAVIA XR TV with your PS5 and get a fully optimised experience. Whether you’re gaming or watching a movie on your PS5, the TV automatically adjusts to optimise the picture and settings. Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode mean your PS5 is served better than ever by this Sony TV.

3-way multi-position stand
Supplied with a 3-way, multi-position stand, the XR-55A80KU is ideal for all types of installation. Dedicated settings are available for use on a narrow support (feet positioned closer together), with soundbar (higher and further apart) or in the standard, low profile position.

Discover the brilliance of OLED for yourself, with the Sony BRAVIA XR-55A80KU.

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 Great Sony TV, excellent unrivalled service Over the years I have purchased a few items from Richer Sounds, large and small, and the knowledgeable, helpful and friendly customer service is always excellent. Steve

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture and sound quality outstanding ! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This really is a very good TV. Let me declare an interest, I am a fan of Sony TVs, mainly because of their picture quality but also their reliability. Our main TV has always been Sony since our (then top of the range) 26” back in the 80s, to the 49” flat screen Bravia we bought about 4 years ago. So, I was delighted to have the opportunity to test and review this model. If nothing else, we wanted to see if the OLED screen in an actual home (not a store) justified all the favourable comment. Short answer – it does! Picture quality is absolutely excellent, very clear and bright. Equally important, the viewing experience is just as good from all positions around the room, not just sitting directly in front of the TV. Sound quality is very good, and I cannot foresee any need to add a soundbar in future. So, on the two most important issues – picture quality and sound – this TV passes with flying colours. Initial set up is easy. The fact that the support/feet have 3 position options (one for use with sound bar) is clever. The overall physical appearance of the unit is very neat and minimalist and should suit any home. Following the on-screen instructions to set up the TV for initial use was very easy (and it is a 72-year-old 32non-tech person writing this) and all channels and relevant subscription services were quickly operational. Particularly liked the small compact remote. Preferable to some of the giant button-laden versions others use these days. Easy mirror casting from iPhone and iPad which allows viewing of photos and videos was a pleasant surprise. I have no doubt I will continue to find additional valuable features as we use the TV more, but initial reactions are all positive – a really great viewing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing thanks Sony to brilliant T.V amazing picture great features we can not fault anything but just one thing we can not access the red button for the news ,local news and entertainment like on the old t.v but hey ho happy days

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Image & sound proved to be beyond my expectations. This was a replacement for a 14 year old top of the range Sony LED TV. I am impressed with the advancement in the design and technology in this TV. It’s a Google TV so has a number of additional features. The design is stunning, as is the quality of the images and sound. The TV worked straight out the box but there are so many areas that can be customised. I like the speech recognition feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV but don’t like Google Intrusion Very easy to set up but Google wants to know far too much about us and what we view etc so have minimised its usage. We use Apple & YouView set top boxes instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I have ever owned [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This new Sony Bravia television A80K is the best I have ever owned. Far superior picture to Samsung. I have the 55 inch and looks amazing, upon delivery easy to set up. Good packaging. Helpful to have bolts to put straight into my wall mount. Excellent to have freesat feature, previously had SKY tv and the cable still in place. Able to set up immediately to give wide choice of free channels many in HD. Having Google TV to display the apps and navigating the Home Screen is amazing. Also the built in acoustic surface audio+ feature is nice, saves spending on a separate sound bar. Just a little more Bass would be better. Overall excellent sound for straight out the box enjoyment. By far the best part of this Sony Television is the picture. Wow the colour definition is perfect. The crispness of the picture blows me away. I wish I had got this Sony TV sooner. A80K TV is a must if you want the best performing television, for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid, well built TV [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my 2nd OLED tv, my first being another brand .. And OMG.. The Sony is far better in terms of picture, sound and build. The blacks are to be seen to be believed, and even the small details like the metal stands make this a class act. Im viewing via a Sky Q box and set up couldnt be easier. This is easily the best TV I've ever owned. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality throughout. Technology and Design stunning [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This TV replaces a Sony LCD TV and the advancement in technology and design are simply stunning. This TV is quality throughout. The packing is well thought out and makes it easy and safe to remove the TV and install it. It has various mounting options and I chose the table top which is also adjustable. The TV is light and easily lifted by one person. Connections are easily accessed and there are plenty of them to attached all the ancillary equipment. Setting up is easy to achieve straight out the box but you can customise the TV to suit your personal preference. I love the Google Assist voice control for accessing the TV. Picture quality is beyond my expectations. Presets for viewing different aspects, sport, cinema etc. Deep blacks and detail in the shadows bright and saturated. Sound is clear and bright and can be customised to suit. I am totally satisfied with this TV and have no hesitation in recommending it. Quality throughout.
