No reviews yet Write a Review


Last year, many experts called Sony's A9 series OLEDs the best 4K TVs available. For 2020, Sony took some of the A9's key performance features and added them to their lower-priced A8 series. The 55" XBR-55A8H also offers innovative speaker technology, and its HDMI inputs have been upgraded for greater future-readiness.

Videophiles love OLED TVs for their striking picture contrast and vibrant colors. Sony's Pixel Contrast Booster takes that a step further by enhancing color and contrast in bright areas, creating scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, as well as a greater sense of depth. This feature especially benefits HDR content.

Sony's X1 Ultimate Processor Brings out the Best in OLED -
Sony isn't the only company selling OLED TVs, but it's the only one that employs Sony's unmatched video processing. The X1™ Ultimate is the same advanced processor that Sony uses in their 8K TVs. Its two main tasks are reducing the compression noise common in streamed video and lower-resolution sources, and upscaling every source to near 4K/HDR quality. Picture quality with 4K streamed content and Ultra HD Blu-ray is spectacular, of course, but you'll be equally amazed at how detailed your HD and lower-res sources look.

Sound and picture in harmony — the screen is the speaker -
Instead of using typical tiny speakers, the XBR-55A8H uses the entire screen to generate sound. Sony's Acoustic Surface™ technology uses actuators on the back to send vibrations through the screen to produce clear audio. Sounds are localized to what's happening on screen — dialogue actually seems to come from the mouths of the characters.
