With a powerful X1 processor at its heart, the Sony KD55XE8596 maximises picture quality.

X1 processor for sublime picture quality - whatever the source
We're now firmly in the era of 4K UHD but Sony realise that not all 4K signals are equal. A RAW 4K UHD signal from a 4K UHD player requires different processing than a Netflix 4K signal or a USB video signal. Sony's X1 processor analyses every signal and optimises it for the best performance possible. Thanks to Sony's X-Reality PRO 4K technology, standard FHD images can be upscaled to near UHD quality, giving the sharpest detail possible from your Blu-rays and other FHD sources.

4K UHD for sublime picture quality
With its UHD screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, the Sony KD55XE8596 is equipped for the 4K UHD revolution. Four times more detailed than Full HD, 4K UHD gives awesome levels of realism are awesome - even when you're sitting close to the TV. Thanks to Sony's 4K X-Reality PRO technology, standard FHD images can be upscaled to near UHD quality, giving the sharpest detail possible from your Blu-rays and other FHD sources.

HDR - High Dynamic Range for stunning contrast
Taking 4K UHD one stage further, the Sony KD55XE8596 is also compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range). This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast.

Triluminos display
As well as 4K, this Sony TV also boasts a Triluminos display; developed to produce truer, deeper and more natural shades of colour, with skin shades appearing far more natural.

Motionflow XR 1000Hz from a native 100Hz screen for smooth motion
This Sony is also fitted with a native 100 Hz screen for faster refresh rates. Combined with Sony's Motionflow XR 1000Hz, this screen gives the Sony super-smooth motion, that's both crisp and steady. Whether you're watching a fast-moving action movie or sports event, the Sony KD55XE8596 remains rock steady.

Android TV
Offering the slick interaction of the best smartphones, Android TV is one of the smartest content managers and providers to date. Boasting features such as GoogleCast, Google Play and Voice Search, this Sony 55" TV is part TV and part giant smartphone.

Voice Search and Content Bar for effortless searching
Even with such a massive range of content, finding what you want is always easy. Voice Search means you simply say what you're looking for and let Android TV find it for you. The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show or video you're after. Call up the Content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, on demand, downloaded TV shows and more.

Be immersed by the bigger picture, with the Sony KD55XE8596.


“If you’re in the market for a quality 4K Blu-ray player, this detailed and colourful Sony is the one we’d recommend” What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017


UHD Blu-ray - the ultimate picture quality

If you've got a 4K UHD TV with HDR, then why not make the most of it with this stunning UHD Blu-ray player. At last, the resolution from films on Blu-ray now matches the UHD resolution of your TV - maximising the potential of every pixel to give super-crisp detail and realism. With a wide range of UHD Blu-ray films already available, you can enjoy the very best in sound and vision from today.


HDR plus HDR to SDR convertor

HDR (High Dynamic Range) offers superior contrast with crisp detail visible within the brightest or darkest colours. HDR makes pictures more natural than ever. If your current TV isn't compatible with HDR, the Sony features an HDR to SDR convertor. Sony's unique technology lets you playback HDR-encoded discs on a regular 4K UHD TV, offering the highest picture quality possible.


Taking streaming to the next level with 4K UHD compatibility

As well as 4K UHD Blu-ray discs, you can also take advantage of the Sony's 4K video streaming services. Already available via Netflix, Amazon and YouTube, 4K streaming takes streaming to another level of clarity and striking image quality.


High-Resolution Audio compatible

Whether you choose to play from disc, USB or stream via a DLNA compatible network, the UBP-X800 is compatible with a wide range of Hi-Res music files. 24-bit/192Hz FLAC and DSD (Direct Stream Digital) files give superb sound quality, meaning you won't need to add a separate network streamer to your AV system.


Play it all

As well as Blu-ray, DVD and CDs, the Sony UBP-X800 plays a wide range of other discs. SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc) and DVD-A discs can be played as well as audio discs recorded using FLAC, DSD, ALAC or AIFF formats. This gives the Sony the ability to excel with High Resolution music formats, lifting its sound quality well above most Blu-ray players.


Anti-vibration construction for cleaner sound

Built to far higher standards than most Blu-ray players, Sony have used construction techniques more usually reserved for high-end Hi-Fi. The casing and drive system feature heavyweight panelling and damping for effective suppression of vibration. Reducing vibration gives the internal electronics an easier life, thereby reducing distortion.


Twin HDMI sockets plus coaxial for easy connectivity

Twin HDMI sockets give you flexible connectivity. The second HDMI lets you run an audio source in another room or use the player with older AV receivers that won't pass through 4K HDR signals. A coaxial digital output gives compatibility with other digital components. Powerful built-in Wi-Fi with multi-antenna, effortlessly links to your system.


DLNA connectivity

DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility makes it easy to stream and transfer music and video from other DLNA-supported devices on your home network. Laptops, PCs, NAS drives and even games consoles can now all easily be linked together.


TV SideView for smartphone control

With the TV SideView app for iPhone or Android you can take control of the Sony with your smartphone or tablet. Use the device as a remote control or as a mouse for web browsing. It also lets you see real-time information about the show you're watching; browse Tweets about the show, share what you're watching and find related videos via the Sony Entertainment Network.

This or the Samsung MU7000 ?


My dilemma exactly but 55MU7000 all day long . I bought it and it’s fanasic TV. Not up there with the XE9005 but well ahead of this Sony. The interface is poor on these Sony and just lacked a punch of Colour the Samsung had. Samsung also run 120Hz and very low input lag for gaming vs the Sony . The pros over in AV forums also recommended the MU 7000 over the 8 series Sony.

I got a free Soundbar with the Samsung as well made the deal even more appealing.

Can you get BBC2 on it?

Depends what you want. It's good value but they don't give away 290 pound uhd blu ray players for nothing.
So if you want a decent 4k TV and not too worried about HDR then this is a good deal.

1600 original price seems steep for this but not bad screen and player for £900. Just ruined by having android TV os

This deal was 850 during black friday btw. But without 6 year guarantee I believe.
Here is a link from AVFORUMS regarding this TV:

avforums.com/rev…184

I would get it over the MU7000.

It has to be said, the comments in this thread are very harsh. This is a fantastic TV, especially throwing in the ultra blu-ray too, which is sold in retailers for over £200.

I picked this TV over the MU7000. Personally prefer Sony as I find Samsung screens (on all devices, including phones etc.) are over saturated for my liking. I much prefer this Sony model over my Samsung 48JU7000T (yes it's older, of course) and find Android TV to be far superior to the interface on my 2 year old Samsung TV. Not an apples for apples comparison, I know. But I have yet to experience any problems worthy of such criticism towards android TV from this model. My old Sony 50W805C model with Android TV, on the other hand, that was an awful software experience!

Same bundle is available for £879 at John Lewis, not sure how to link to it though, if you go to this models page on their site (LINK) its listed underneath

From what I can see the xe90 range is the best deal in terms of value for what you get.
Now if that would go under £1000 for the 55inch it would get seriously hot.

Still in a quandary of what TV to get
B7 - screen burn worries
Q7 - too pricey for what it is.
Xe85 - looks tempting
Mu7000/8000 - also tempting.

Will be watching for good deals in the run up to xmas

Mu7000 any day.


Ks7000 even better. The is range is so hard to find and by all acounts they are far superior to the this years mu range. Take a look at the review of the ks9500 in this months home cinema choice . They rate it as being as good as if not better as this years best new.models.

If you dont want the blu-ray player and are just after the TV, you can call in to RS and they will price match TPS who are selling the TV for £645 + £55 delivery, and RS knock off a further £10 making it a total cost of £690, including delivery and a 6 year guarantee! That is what I have ordered and waiting for my delivery!

Doesn't "look" like that is going to happen for the xe90. I wanted the 49 and got that for 930 (Richersounds price match). Its price has gone back to 999 for some places and 1190 at others. The 55 "looks" like its going to stay around the 1300 mark for a while. I can understand why some would say that for that price you should get the OLED. The xe85 is an OK TV. If I went Samsung I would be looking for last years KS not this year MU models.

Picked up my TV from Richersounds yesterday.

Loving it boys ... fantastic picture quality. I saw the BBC Blue Planet (of course) to see how the HD pictues looked and it looks fantastic.

Android TV is a bit of a drag, and will get worse as Android improves I guess. Something for people to think about.

XBox One S games are fantastic - played Assassin's creed and it is absolutely WOW!!!

IPTv - yet to get netflix, but streaming other TV services, one can notice that the upscaling for standard definition SUCKS!! With most services moving to HD, i suppose this is not a big issue. However Standard TV is like playing DOS games on your brand new PC.

Colours are fantastic and vivid ... ghosting - haven't seem much of that yet.

All in all - very very happy with this TV. Will probably write a more comprehensive review on AVforums once i have the colours calibrated. Honestly when compared feature to feature with the flagship XE9005, this is a great TV for the price i paid. Very happy with the purchase.

It’s a cracking TV which uses a VA panel which lots of people prefer to an IPS panel, this is my 2nd Sony with a VA panel and the blacks are excellent. Cracking picture via an Xbox One X either in games or movie! COD and Forza looks bloody amazing! The choice is yours ultimately, if you sell the 4K player on for a couple of hundred which they are worth all day long so AVForums say, you have a damn cheap TV.

Wow, I'm wondering if this deal will reach 500°
