With one of the most powerful picture processors around, the Sony KD55XE9005 makes the most of all your sources, giving stunning quality whatever the source.


Using technology from the range-topping ZD9 for stunning detail

First used on the range-topping ZD9 model, 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.

X1 processor for sublime picture quality - whatever the source
We're now firmly in the era of 4K UHD but Sony realise that not all 4K signals are equal. A RAW 4K UHD signal from a 4K UHD player requires different processing than a Netflix 4K signal or a USB video signal. Sony's X1 processor analyses every signal and optimises it for the best performance possible. Thanks to Sony's X-Reality PRO 4K technology, standard FHD images can be upscaled to near UHD quality, giving the sharpest detail possible from your Blu-rays and other FHD sources.

X-tended Dynamic Range PRO with HDR - High Dynamic Range
The Sony KD55XE9005 is compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range). This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast. Where this Sony 55 inch TV goes even further is in using Sony's X-tended Dynamic Range PRO processor. By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO reveals a brightness range three times that of a conventional LED-backlit TV.

Triluminos display
As well as 4K, this Sony TV also boasts a Triluminos display; developed to produce truer, deeper and more natural shades of colour, with skin shades appearing far more natural.

Motionflow XR1000Hz for super-smooth motion
This Sony is also fitted with Motionflow XR 1000Hz, which works especially well with fast moving action, such as sports events, removing the blur you can see with standard TVs. From a Hollywood blockbuster to a Formula One race, XR1000 makes a significant difference.

Android TV
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.

See all your video sources at their very best, with the X1-powered Sony KD55XE9005.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from apps never work i bought this a few days ago. the guys in the shop were helpful and i'm pretty happy with the screen. however.... When i bought my previous tv i was told the apps would "just work" they didn't. so i specifically asked if the apps would work on this tv, given i did not have an aerial, just virgin cable. no problem apparently, "they just need the internet". well no, they still don't work. when i try to use them the tv insists on scanning for signals - of course it doesn't find one. therefore no apps. i suspect tv companies spin this line to the guys in the shop too - and if they said anything different it shows what a scam so called "smart" tvs are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV I've had this a couple of weeks and the picture quality is superb. It was very easy to set up and I was watching the tv within 20 minutes of opening the box. Good service from RS as usual would have no hesitation in recommending this tv

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV, Android interface is slow. Great TV, but android interface lets it down. For the cost of this TV that should be addressed. Overall, happy with this purchase. The picture is fantastic. Richer Sounds : Lots of issues actually buying this TV and was unable to check if my local store had this in stock without actually picking up the telephone and ringing them. Initially I was unable to buy the television as their payment gateway refused purchase. Problem was not with my card or bank and had to ring Richer Sounds the next day and order manually over the phone (That's a poor customer journey)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning Picture Excellent picture quality. However, the Android TV system is a bit sluggish thus the 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SONY SMART TV XE90 SERIES - BEAUTIFUL TECH This SONY TV is beautifully made, perhaps, the most gorgeous-looking designer panel on the market today. The external power supply is a very clever way to isolate power supply noise. Build quality is like nothing else available. This TV comes packed with SONY techs (microchips) that go beyond what is expected from a modern TV, this is the beast of a TV in itself. Broadcasting vide is being upsampled to 4K, especially, the UK HD channels are immediately improved. The sound is also improved with the SONY DSEE (upsampler) chip, a very unique technology normally available with most expensive items in the market. The 4K chip is very powerful and accurate, probably, the best in the marketplace today. Absolutely make sure to enable the MotionFlow and XDR (extended range) for your video signals - this is what this TV is all about after all. My only observations are that the Android 7 OS which runs all the tech of this set is still slowish and requires improvement. Your remote responsiveness still leaves much to be desired - Google needs to look into their IoT OS strategy asap. Also, the digital sound level output is a bit too low, in my opinion - be sure to use an external SONY soundbar. Hope this helps and I highly rec this piece of art for your home and office. My Weybridge RicherSounds Team is incredible in their customer support, care and attention - they went far and beyond out of their way to make sure that I get all the info and delivery timing right. I am just amazed how much caring and professional this super team is - most likely, best in the country! Thank you, Weybridge team so much - let's do more business.
