Sony XR42A90K 42” 4K OLED HDR Smart TV

Sony knows the process of movie production inside and out, including filming and editing. That expertise shines through in their highly rated TV line-up. Their OLED TVs are especially well regarded, combining the infinite contrast of self-illuminating pixels with Sony’s multi-award winning processing technology.

A TV’s ability to produce deep, dark blacks is extremely important to overall picture quality. OLED TVs, like Sony’s BRAVIA XR-42A90K, absolutely excel at this. Each pixel can turn on and off individually to display absolute black. This creates a contrast ratio that is essentially infinite, resulting in rich colours and an incredibly lifelike image.

Up until very recently this superb technology was only available in larger sizes but now with the XR42A90K Sony has introduced a more compact 42” screen that still offers the unbeatable picture performance of OLED.

Powerful “cognitive” processing

Sony are famed for their powerful processing technology, and they’ve just raised the bar again. The new Cognitive Processor XR™ harnesses the power of machine learning and marries it with a human perspective to create a truly immersive viewing experience. A wide range of elements including contrast, colour and texture are cross-analysed in each frame to detect and enhance key focal points. The number of specific details being adjusted can rise into the hundreds of thousands. Because these focal points are based on how we actually see the world, the image appears to have more depth and is more lifelike.

In short, Sony’s new cognitive processing technology produces a sharp, hyper-detailed image that’s about as true-to-life as a TV can get.

Realistic, vibrant colour

The A90K’s XR TRILUMINOS PRO™ display technology further enriches your experience by providing a wider palette of vivid colours. The additional subtlety in colour variation helps the picture look authentic and natural.

Enhanced by HDR

The A90K also supports the Dolby Vision® HDR (High Dynamic Range) format. This system adjusts brightness and colour levels scene by scene for enhanced contrast and detail with Dolby Vision encoded programs, many of which are available through popular streaming services.

Impressive 3D TV sound

Sony’s cognitive processing doesn’t just benefit the picture — it’s used to enhance the audio as well. Here it works together with the A90K’s unique Acoustic Surface Audio+ technology where the screen itself becomes a speaker. This allows sound to be projected vertically and to the sides, and positioned where the source of a sound appears on-screen. That means you’ll get pretty immersive sound, even without additional audio equipment. The TV even “upscales” incoming audio signals to make sure you’re always getting 3D sound, regardless of your source.

Google TV simplifies streaming

The XR42A90K includes the Google TV smart app platform which consolidates a wide range of streaming services into a single user interface. Watch an episode of Killing Eve on iPlayer followed by The Expanse on Amazon Prime all from one watch list, without having to search around in individual apps.

And if you’re feeling really lazy, you can simply ask the Google Assistant to pull up a show or movie. You can also adjust the volume, change channels or inputs, and control other basic TV functions using your voice.

Premium remote

Sony have completely redesigned their remote for 2022. The new premium remote is easy to use with simplified buttons, a backlight so you can see everything clearly, even in the dark, and a Finder function for quickly locating it by voice if lost. With a compact design and aluminium finish the remote has a beautifully refined look and is comfortable to hold in the hand.

Next-gen gaming ready

The A90K has two HDMI 2.1 inputs, a key feature for next-gen gaming consoles. To take full advantage of the graphical prowess of a PS5 or Xbox Series X, you’ll need those inputs to hit 4K at a crisp 120 Hz. The TV also supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM). These will keep the action on-screen nice and smooth by removing frame tearing and stuttering.

Premium design with 2-way multi-position stand

XR42A90K features a versatile 2-way stand design. The standard setting focuses you on the picture whilst the alternative soundbar setting allows space to position a soundbar without obstructing the screen. Thanks to the adjustable stand, you can also use the TV as a gaming display on a desktop
