oled life

In a world of ever-increasing TV screen sizes, is it always a case that bigger is better?

In larger living rooms opting for a big screen TV is never an issue, as a big screen can offer a fantastic cinema-like experience. However, for those of us with small or medium sized living rooms the need to choose a smaller screen shouldn’t prohibit us from owning a genuinely brilliant TV. For that reason, we are delighted that now, for the very first time, Sony’s best ever OLED picture quality is available in a smaller screen size! What Hi-Fi? magazine have stated that it is “simply the best sub 55-inch TV you can buy.”


The award-winning A9 Series OLED combines Sony’s high-end innovations in the fields of picture processing and sound for a striking, robust audio-visual experience encased in compact 48” frame, which is designed to fit even the smallest living room. The 48A9 even holds Sony’s “Master Series” designation, which is given to TVs that meet the strict criteria of Sony’s top engineers and makes beautiful images a reality.

This TV uses OLED technology with over 8 million self-illuminating pixels that are precisely and individually controlled by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate. Simply put, it means the TV creates exquisite, unprecedented contrast. With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate detects hundreds of on-screen objects and intelligently enhances brightness, detail and colour so everything you see is clear, bright and incredibly realistic.

Maybe the cleverest feature on this TV is Sony’s innovative Acoustic Surface Audio Technology that delivers great immersive sound. Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen can often seem disconnected from the picture, but with Acoustic Surface Audio the screen is the speaker! Actuators located behind the panel vibrate discreetly to create sound from where the action is: on-screen! The result: an incredibly immersive and dynamic sound experience.

We also simply love the sleek design of this TV, which would blend harmoniously into a room of any size. A narrow metal bezel keeps you immersed in the picture, while cable management features keep connecting wires hidden from view to complete the seamless look. The aluminium central stand harmonises beautifully with the screen’s elegantly flush surface.

With easy access to all your favourite content, services and devices, this Android TV makes life simpler. With Voice Search just ask for the best TV shows and latest films on Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video and NowTV.
