Experience unique pictures and realistic sound from the Sony KD55XG8505BU 55 inch LED 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart Television.

This clever set is packed with features that capture the best of 4K perfectly, with upscaling of lower definition content where necessary.

The Triluminos display delivers authentic, natural-looking colours with shades that look pure, with more tones and textures than standard LED backlighting.

Sony's multi-audio system puts the tweeters at roughly the same height as your ears, enhancing the bass reflex speakers so they become one with the screen.

It's powered by the 4K HDR Processor X1, which delivers crystal clear images in real time with impressive attention to detail.

A gamut twice the size of conventional LCD panels can deliver a perfect picture without a hint of fading, from any angle.

It works perfectly with the 4K X-Reality Pro engine, which upscales content down to the last pixel so that objects on the screen are individually remastered.

This is complemented by X-tended Dynamic Range, which produces colour and brightness that's appropriate to each scene through the edge lit back-lighting system.

Frame dimming further tweaks the contrast across the entire screen, bringing out the darkness of blacks and the glow of natural whites effectively.

Motionflow XR 800 can update frames eight times faster than some previous models, which keeps up the pace in fast-moving sequences and is great for live sport.

A home entertainment hub is available through the Super-Sound Android Platform, developed for Sony by Google, with a wealth of apps available.

A host of additional options can be found in the Google Play store, but a good number are already built-in and ready to go.

This model can fully support Netflix's Calibrated Mode, the content provider's own version of studio quality mastering.

Their 4K and HDR specific library is growing fast, with the Sony range's image configuring in the same way content creators calibrate their monitors in post-production.

It comes close to replicating the grade monitors used in their television and film studios for their 'originals' and plays seamlessly.

Google Chromecast is built in and Google Assistant connectivity provides the option for voice recognition, with further speech capabilities through the remote control.
