The XBR-48A9S is one of Sony's best TVs from 2020. The UK version impressed us with detailed, natural pictures and stunning sound, all packaged in a stylish set.
And, thanks to this early 4th of July deal, Sony's OLED TV is down from $1498 to only $1298 (opens in new tab)...
Sony XBR-48A9S OLED TV
$1498 $1298 at Amazon (save $200) (opens in new tab)
Sony's 2020 Master Series OLED majors on picture authenticity and has one of the best sound solutions of any current TV - hidden actuators vibrate the whole screen to make an excellent sound that matches the on-screen action perfectly. A brilliant buy.
The A9 OLED TV range was one of the best we saw in 2020 and our review of the 48in UK version, called the KD-48A9 resulted in a full house of five stars. It looks and sounds better than many rivals, and has better motion. It’s a fabulous performer with 1080p and SDR content, too.
When it comes to 4K HDR, rivals such as the LG OLED48CX (another 2020 model) give this set a run for its money, but you won't be disappointed with what's on offer from Sony's A9. One minor issue was that it was relatively expensive – but this $200 discount should hopefully soften the blow.
With 4th of July, the NBA Finals and Tokyo Olympics coming up, now's a great time to upgrade your TV. If the Sony XBR-48A9S is right for you, grab one for the reduced price of $1298 at Amazon (opens in new tab), Crutchfield (opens in new tab) or Focus (opens in new tab).
