Sony XBR-55A9G 55″ Smart TV | Sony HT-ST5000 Dolby Atmos Soundbar
Sony XBR-55A9G MASTER Series 55″ OLED 4K Ultra HD Smart TV
Sony XBR-55A9G 55″ MASTER Series Smart OLED 4K Ultra HD TV was the winner at the annual TV Shootout competition. We won’t know until summer who will win this year, but I wouldn’t bet against Sony’s top OLED TVs. Thanks to the company’s most powerful video processor ever, the 55″ Sony XBR-55A9G produces Sony’s finest 4K picture yet, no matter what source you’re watching. That, combined with a unique in-screen speaker system, guarantees immersive picture and sound.
X1 Ultimate — still the industry’s best video processing
Sony XBR-55A9G screen has 8.3 million pixels that can brighten, dim, or power off completely. And each pixel is precisely and individually controlled by the Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate — Sony’s most powerful video processor ever. It’s able to identify, analyze and optimize hundreds of objects in any video frame, rather than applying generic enhancement to the entire frame. So it can make precise adjustments to the color, contrast and sharpness of individual elements, creating a much more natural looking picture.
The X1 Ultimate processor also detects if there is a static image on screen and performs a pixel shift to avoid burn-in or image retention.
Immersive sound, too — the entire screen is a speaker
Instead of using typical tiny speakers, the Sony XBR-55A9G uses the entire screen to generate sound. Sony’s upgraded Acoustic Surface Audio+™ technology uses three actuators on the back to send vibrations through the screen to produce sound. Effects and dialogue track the on-screen action, creating an even more immersive experience. A total of 60 watts of power drives the screen speaker system as well as dual rear-mounted woofers.
A set of speaker inputs is included on the back so you can use the TV’s screen sound system as the center channel in a home theater setup. It’s a clever solution, especially if you don’t have the space for a dedicated center speaker.
You can tell this TV what you want
Sony XBR-55A9G built-in Android operating system lets you easily log in to your Google ID to access a huge collection of apps, games and content from Google Play. Use the Chromecast Built-in feature to stream movies, pictures, and TV shows from your iOS or Android-based phone, or from a laptop.
Sony designed the Sony XBR-55A9G to respond to voice commands, but you’ll never have to worry about it eavesdropping on your conversations. The built-in Google Assistant will only activate when you press the mic button on the remote and speak into the microphone. You can adjust the volume, change channels or inputs, and control other basic TV functions, hands-free. Google Assistant can also answer everyday questions and control connected smart home devices. This TV is also compatible with Amazon Alexa voice control assistants.
One of the coolest new features for 2019 is support for Apple® AirPlay® 2, so you’ll be able to stream content wirelessly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac to the biggest screen in your home.
