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 5 out of 5 by from great tv Amazing tv, the picture is stunning even on standard broadcast material, haven't seen 4K yet, I can't see how it can better HD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture and sound. I recently bought a house and wanted a reasonable size TV for watching Snowboarding videos and movies. So I went for the 55" model I was very pleased! It has nice natural colours, clear imaging and the sound is reasonable as well. But I do have it hooked to my paradigm milleniaone speakers for surround sound though. It has enough connectors at the back which is standard really. If you want a TV for clear images 5 star and the sound on the TV is really good quality for a slim TV 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tv with great features Only been couple of weeks But superb picture Features on the tv are excellent One thing to note is any 4k tv is not good with standard tv channels They are designed for HD channels which is only a few

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture, sluggish interface I've had this TV 2 weeks now and the picture is fantastic. You can get the blacks to go really deep, the colours are stunning in HDR and there's plenty of brightness. I have also been very pleasantly surprised at how superb the 1080p picture looks, a very polished performer in this area. Motion is handled without fuss whether you're watching Sport or a fast paced action movie. The only slight negatives on the picture front are the very slightly dark corners, visible on light backgrounds and washed out look of the picture once you go off dead centre viewing, though this is pretty standard for this type of panel. The one area that does let the TV down however is the Android interface. Don't get me wrong it is laid out logically enough and there are plenty of features and content but oh my is sluggish at times! Even just changing the volume can provoke a second or two delay. I'm still happy I made the purchase because the picture really is stunning and let's face it this should be the main reason someone buys a TV. The service from RS has been great and they honoured a price drop twice, meaning I got the TV for £1099 in the end.
