Sony KD55A8BU What Hi-Fi 5 Star Review

Sony Bravia KD55A8BU 55-inch 4K HDR OLED Android TV

Designing televisions that faithfully convey the creator's intent is Sony’s passion. Sony’s image processing prowess combined with OLED display technology ensures the most accurate, lifelike images possible. Experience truly exceptional black levels, shadow detail and lifelike colours with the awesome Sony KD55A8BU OLED TV. Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by Sony’s X1™ Ultimate picture processor. This incredible OLED TV creates exquisite, unprecedented contrast that reveals more detail in shadows and more depth in every scene.

Acoustic Surface™ Audio

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With Sony’s Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker so what you hear comes from the place in the scene where the action is happening – dialogue from characters, sound effects from all around creating a much larger, wider soundstage than conventional TVs. An integrated subwoofer helps to produce deep bass – ideal for action movies and music.

Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate

With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate detects hundreds of different objects on screen and intelligently enhances brightness, detail and colour so everything you watch is clear, bright and incredibly realistic.

Pixel Contrast Booster™: Maximising OLED contrast in every colour 

See real-world colours, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, colour and contrast are enhanced in bright areas so you can enjoy scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture and the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver. 

Discover every detail with 4K X-Reality™ PRO

Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony’s unique features. The incredibly powerful X1™ Ultimate processor precisely analyses and processes data to enrich 4K pictures with real world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X-Reality™ PRO using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimised by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real world textures.

A brilliant view from any angle

Enjoy superb viewing angles with the Sony KD55A8BU OLED TV, see pictures that are bright and clear from wherever you are sitting, with OLED, you can bring the whole family together to enjoy the screen and they'll all have a great view of the action

X-Motion Clarity™

With pictures created by millions of individually controlled pixels, everything is sharp and clear on OLED. And with X-Motion Clarity™ technology, even fast action stays smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimise blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high speed scenes.

Dual database processing

One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.

TRILUMINOS™ Display

By widening the colour spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by X1™ Ultimate processor reproduces more colours than a conventional television. It analyses and processes data in every image to make colours even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.

Premium design & build

A8’s slim and simple one slate design features an ultra-narrow metal bezel keeping you focused on the screen while blending harmoniously into any room environment. The flexible Metal Blade Stand is also sound bar ready - the direction of this versatile stand can be adjusted so your soundbar won’t block or impede the lower part of the screen. 

Netflix Calibrated Mode

Enjoy studio quality with Netflix Calibrated Mode - this mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix originals and reproduce the same picture quality on a TV as on a studio evaluation master. With Netflix Calibrated Mode, the creator's vision and intent is faithfully preserved.

IMAX Enhanced

This Sony 4K OLED Smart TV is an IMAX Enhanced product, ready to meet high-quality colour, contrast, clarity and sound. Take comfort in knowing you'll be enjoying a fully immersive at-home entertainment experience on this TV that takes full advantage of IMAX Enhanced content

Object-based HDR remaster

With Object-based HDR remaster, the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more realistic pictures.

Smart Android TV with Voice Remote

Access a world of content, apps and games including popular services like Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video* through your TV and with voice search you can quickly find content across different services without the hassle of time consuming text entry.

*services require suitable subscription

Google Play™

Discover movies and TV shows, games and much more from Google Play™. Enjoy a huge and ever-growing choice of apps on your TV in a brand new way.

Transform your viewing with Dolby Vision™

Bring scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colours. Dolby Vision is an HDR solution that creates an immersive, engaging cinematic experience in your home.

Works with Google Home and Amazon Alexa

Connect your Google Home or Amazon Alexa enabled devices for seamless hands-free control of your Sony TV. With Amazon Alexa, you can power up your TV, change channels, control volume and more. With Google Home, you can find and cast your favourite videos to your Sony TV, without lifting a finger.

Super Bit Mapping™ 4K HDR

Super Bit Mapping™ 4K HDR creates a smoother, more natural picture by minimising colour banding. With 14-bit powerful signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of colour of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to 14-bit equivalent gradation, with 64 times more colour levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of faces, sunsets and other areas of subtle colour gradation.

Chromecast built-in

Chromecast lets you cast your favourite videos, games and apps from your mobile device, in full quality, to your TV. Just one tap of the Cast button on your Android or iOS screen is all you need to supersize the things you love. Cast your content then continue browsing on your phone or tablet.
