Sony KD55XD8005 55" 4K Ultra HD HDR, Android TV & Sony HTCT390 Wireless Soundbar including 6 Year Warranty - £999 - Richer Sounds

Noticed the Sony KD55XD7005 has been floating around the £7-800 price point at the moment and was going to take the plunge, before noticing this deal.

The soundbar is on the same website for £299, and this TV alone is £999. So along with the trusty 6 year warranty seems pretty good to me.

You can't order it online, it's by telephone or in store only.

Soundbar is £249.95

Are there user reviews or feedback for this available anywhere? I can't find a thing.

I have the sound bar, not the TV and I like it alot, I will happily answer any questions

Sorry I know that doesn't help with the main part (tv)

Same deal at John Lewis already posted although extra year warranty with RS. No reviews anywhere though!

Does this have a 10 bit panel

The soundbar is around the £200 mark not £300.

only problem I feel about this tv is 400Hz , JL describe it as having 800Hz which is wrong ..

I have the X8505B and the same sound bar. I can answer questions about the soundbar too

please don't ask about X8505B, It saddens me

Edited by: "rand0m" 4th Oct 2016

Is this better than a sony kd55x8509c from last year or should Iook for a good second hand deal on that? I have tried google a lot and only spec comparisons. Thanks in advance

Is the soundbar worth buying on it's own?

Also does it do 4k passthrough like the Sony HT-CT381 as I can't find anything that say's it does but I assumed it was just the colour that was different between the two.

I have the Sony X85C, I'm sure they're both very similar. I'm not a big fan of Android TV since it runs quite slowly which makes it very annoying to use. Although, Kodi works well on it which is good but everything else feels slow and buggy.

Yes, I tested quite a few in currys and also soundbases - this was my favourite within my budget

I did however get it from a local store for £200, they currently have it for £220 Here

Same, can't find any info regarding 4K passthrough on this model...is it then worth buying with 4K tv?

I can get this from Amazon Marketplace for £118 so very tempted but it needs to be able to pass 4k.

Don't think it does pass through as only has 1 ARC HDMI

I realise this is instore only - not sure exactly how it works but Richer Sounds offer a Quidco instore cashback rate of 3% so potentially a further £30 back there as well, although not guaranteed.
I can't work out how you do it as instructions on Quidco page are not that clear
"
In-store cashback rates

It seems this TV is the UK equivalent of the American X800D (Which they only get 43" and 49" size options for)
Review here: uk.rtings.com/tv/…00d
One of the few 4K TV's with an input lag low enough to consider for gaming.

Edit: Nope, this TV is the American X850D which isn't quite so favourably reviewed: uk.rtings.com/tv/…50d

Disappointing

​If you read the item description I actually said the Soundbar is on the Richer Sounds website for £299. The TV model below this is on the internet between £7-800. However, this particular model is on the same website for £999 without the separate Soundbar.

I've also heard that the Sony XD55XD7005 is a 10 bit panel, so I assume this is too. Although don't quote me on that.

This has a much better input lag, for gaming, than the above mentioned TV too.

I tried the 8509 last year and was not impressed at all! Looking at the rtings mentioned on here looks about the same poor quality.

I was considering this but given various reports of all Sony models below the XD93 model having only a HDR approximation (wider colour gamut, but lacking sufficient local brightness) achieved through software not hardware has given me reservation. Plus add to that the juddering issues being experienced across the range remain unresolved. The big positive is that this model (being the most recent release in the range) appears to have improved the input lag. All up in the air until someone gives it a proper review though! Will skip this attractive offer and hope a review lands before Black Friday.

It is, but if you are an audiophile and would like to have a proper home theater setup, I wouldn't recommend it.

But if you are on a limited budget, but want to enjoy movies/music without breaking your bank, this is a perfect addition to your living room.

Thank you. I think I am going to probably go for the lg 55uh850v if price gets down to £800, £900 like previous years model. I like passive 3d and looked good in shops.

I bought this TVs from £754 delivered from the co op
