Sony BRAVIA KD55XE8596 HDR 4K TV
For four generations of 4K UHD Sony has ruled the roost of picture, sound and build quality. The 2017 XE series builds on this further and now has one of the most attractive Smart platforms on the market.
The Sony BRAVIA XE series maintains the same exceptional build quality as the 2016 XD series but builds upon the image quality with the X1 4K HDR Processor and the next generation TRILUMINOS display.
Sound performance is not compromised and a cavity remains to ensure perfect acoustics for your living room. The Sony BRAVIA KD55XE8596 4K TV now joins Sony's expanding range of HiRes Audio products. HiRes Audio encompasses all audio played back using higher sampling rates than those used in CD's.
With all this technology housed into one stunning unit, you want to make sure you get the longevity that you would expect from a Sony product. That is why this Sony BRAVIA KD55XE8596 4K TVcomes with a full 5 years guarantee that covers parts, labour and even home visits.
Sony BRAVIA 4K TV with X1 4K HDR Processor
The X1 processor is the missing link from a good to an exceptional television experience. The X1 Processor analyses every signal received to the TV to understand what level of processing is required to the picture. So a RAW 4K Ultra HD signal will be handled differently to Netflix 4K signal to a Sky HD signal to a USB video signal.
The Sony BRAVIA KD55XE8596 4K TV has Sony's fourth iteration of their TRILUMINOS display. TRILUMINOUS brings more lifelike colour and meaning vibrance and colour accuracy is greatly improved providing a brilliant image quality alongside benefits of 4K Ultra HD resolution. Taking the technology a step further is the Precision Colour Mapping process which enhances the blue shades of colour ensuring the full range of the colour gamut is produced.
Sony has once again chosen Android TV operating system as its smart platform which includes the widest range of catch up and streaming services available on any TV in 2017. Anything from BBC iPlayer to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video is accessible from the TV directly providing a wide range of entertainment without the need of an external box.

||It’s a Sony and lives up to the name. Outstanding picture for such good value, a 2017 set as well. HDMI ports at least 3 of them and an optical output were important to me, along with 4K and HDR.|
||Have bought this tv for our extension but is not ready for fitment yet so have temporarily installed it in our bedroom. Very pleased with the operation and aesthetics and ease of use, not fantastic sound but i dont care to much about that.|
||No complaints so far, i watch a lot of stuff via USB no issues loading or with playback all in all delighted with my purchase.|
