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 Best quality smart tv so far Having owned a few different brands of smart tv so far this is currently the best. Simple to set up with a host of brilliant features including the ability to integrate with Alexa and link the rest of your AV devices together. Just as important is of course the picture quality which again personally speaking is the best I have had. Blacks and colour are exceptional as is the crispness and lack of motion blur. I cannot comment on the sound as use external cinema set up. The price now also is fantastic plus Richer Sounds five year guarantee makes it a five star purchase for me....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Starting to frustrate me now I've had this TV almost a year now, and although there is no doubt that the picture is fantastic, the general sluggish-ness and bug ridden nature of the interface is really starting to get to me. It is nearly always very slow to navigate through menus or change the volume, sometimes upwards of a 5 second delay between pressing the button and the function actually happening (I'm not exaggerating - I've timed it!). This morning the whole TV had a meltdown when switching from Youtube back to TV mode, switched itself off and wouldn't turn back on for a few minutes. It then wouldn't turn back on for a few minutes and when it did had lost some of the Freesat channels. Also some of the on demand apps only allow you to view if you are using Youview, which I'm not as I use Freesat, which seems a bit silly. It has just an update which seems to make the interface a little quicker but it now crashes more often which it didn't do before. If these problems persist I will be contacting RS for a repair/exchange/refund as it is not what I expect from a TV costing upwards of £1000.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sony KD 55XE9005 Bought this Sony TV two weeks ago after years of loyalty to Panasonic. It is a high spec LED tv packed with features. Paired it with a Marantz AV receiver and spent a good while setting everything up.....but the Sony TV has only lasted 4 days. First the screen went blank and we were left with sound. The next day ... no sound and a screen full of green and white stripes. Not RicherSounds fault....the service at the Newcastle branch at the point of purchase was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Sony product I purchased a 49 inch version in February and needed a replacement set for an 8 year old Sony in the other room, I initially due to price purchased a 50 inch Panasonic tx750eb, this faulted on day one , returned it to branch and after a few days returned and paid the additional £400, to get this 55 inch model , picture is excellent and really find the sound ok, android system is sluggish but worth the pain for the rest of the benefits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony 55 Inch 4K Ultra HD HDR TV Purchased this TV two weeks ago, after seeking advice to find the best image quality for my budget. It was a great buy, fantastic picture, reasonable sound quality, a bit fiddley to get used to the menu and I probably have still not realised all the features, but it gives me what I wanted, an awesome picture, love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture I bought this tv about 3 weeks ago the picture is amaizing especially with the ps4 pro. The android tv platform is a bit slow but hopefully with updates this will improve.

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.
