SHS The Score - Sony BRAVIA A9 4K OLED TV
Recommended For: OLED perfection on a smaller screen
The A9 gives customers the option of a smaller screen size without missing out on any great features. This 48” OLED offers X-Motion Clarity and Sony’s flagship X1 Ultimate Processor. In an OLED TV, light and colour are combined and outputted from a single source. This means a pixel can create and turn off its own light, resulting in brighter colour and the blackest blacks.
4K and HDR benefit here as the image created is hyper-realistic and will handle contrast between light and dark colours much better than a conventional LED. Differentiation between similar colours is made better too, allowing you to see details that were previously hidden when viewed on a conventional TV.
Available in a 48” screen to suit the size & layout of your room. Read our handy blog on choosing the right screen size for your room here.
SHS Top Sony BRAVIA A9 Features (Explained)
4K HDR OLED TV: OLED screens ensure all colour output is extremely vivid and blacks are even darker as the luminosity of each LED can be tailored exactly to the needs of the pixel they are lighting. 4K and HDR content is even more vivid and detailed when viewed on an OLED TV.
Dolby Vision Atmos: The A9 will perfectly pass through Atmos recorded content via e-ARC into a connected soundbar and Dolby Vision quality picture from connected devices, along with offering a 3D sound experience when playing audio through the TV alone thanks to Acoustic Surface Audio.
Sony X1 Ultimate HDR Processor: Built on the success of Sony’s class-leading X1 Processor, the X1 Ultimate takes image processing to the next level. The X1 will render each object on screen separately to ensure the picture is clear and colour realistic, rather than rendering each frame as a whole. For example, a helicopter flying across the screen is processed separately to the blue sky behind it, minimising blur and boosting colour clarity and contrast.
Smart Features: Access all your favourite entertainment in record time with Android TV, featuring Google Play Store and Chromecast. A separate processor enables all Sony TVs to launch apps, such as Netflix, 3 times faster than a conventional smart television. Works with Apple Homekit and Airplay.
Premium Remote: A9’s premium remote also allows for Hands-Free Voice Search making it easy to control your TV.
Similar TV Comparison
Model Below: Sony BRAVIA A8 - Sony’s most popular OLED of 2020 offers X-Motion Clarity for OLED, Acoustic Surface Audio and Pixel Contrast Booster, making it a worthy competitor against the A9. The A8 is also available in a variety of screen sizes to suit more room sizes.
Model Above: Sony BRAVIA AG9 - Centre Speaker Mode makes the AG9 great for use with an Amp and bookshelf or floorstanding speakers as the TV can be used as the central, vocal sound channel. Available in the smaller size of 55” and 65” along with a large 77” option.
Jargon Buster: Breaking Down The Spec
4K X-Reality Pro: The A9 X1 Ultimate Processor will upscale pixels in any image to bring them closer to true 4K definition. This is achieved through image noise reduction techniques and AI detail enhancement.
Ambient Optimisation: Screen brightness will automatically adjust depending on the light conditions in your room. In a dark room, brightness will dim slightly for a more comfortable viewing experience.
Acoustic Surface Audio: The TV sound emanates from the screen itself with two actuators vibrating the TV imperceptibly and a pair of subwoofers providing deep bass and a more dynamic, 3D sound overall.
Pixel Contrast Booster: Both colour and contrast are enhanced in brighter areas of the screen to add depth and a greater number of colour hues and shades.
IMAX Enhanced: Content that has been specially formatted for IMAX theatres will play as intended through the A9, giving you deeper bass, dynamic audio range, image grain reduction and a wider viewing scope.
X-Wide Angle: Image brightness and contrast won't dim or change even when viewed from side on, making the A9 perfect for positioning in a corner or to the side of the viewing audience.
Best Matched Soundbars
*We recommend wall mounting the A9 if using a soundbar to avoid encroaching on the screen.*
Sonos Arc - The eARC connection on the Sony A9 will pass on Dolby Atmos sound content to your sound bar, allowing Arc to play in Dolby Atmos and use its upward firing speaker drivers for a more immersive home-cinema experience.
Sony HT-G700 - 3.1 channel soundbar and subwoofer package with support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Bluetooth 5.0 for hassle-free connection. Designed to enhance your TV audio with cinematic surround sound and impressive vocals.
