Before anything else, let’s talk about the design first. Sony’s new design is simple but elegant. They call this design a “Sense of Quartz”. New vision for the ultimate clarity and experience, “Sense of Quartz” is an expression of essential value through genuine materials. They use a monolithic glass slate that appears to float over a ring shaped base or a silver top table stand that can act as a wall bracket as well. This core forms an aesthetic connection forming an intelligent core of elegance and quality design. The composition displays the distinctive silhouette of Sony Bravia.

Now they use an new engine called X-Reality PRO. This new engine heightens the picture quality even though if the original source isn’t that good. You’ll experience stunning picture quality in almost everything that you do. Whether you’re watching TV or you’re watching Blu Ray disc movies, you’ll notice the level of quality that this TV brings.

Thus, restoring beautiful results from any source with more natural detail, richer colors and high contrast. Super Resolution processing optimize images for incredible detail and quality. So each time you watch, you’ll have the best picture quality. There are also certain modes you can choose from. Like Game, Cinema, Sports, Graphics, Animation, these are called scene select. You can choose these pre-sets to enhance your viewing experience. It will optimize the most effective and proper scene quality. Whether you’re playing games or watching sports, scene select helps you indulge into a great viewing experience. X-Reality Pro also reduces noise, this is useful especially if you’re watching low res videos, like streaming, etc. The new engine basically, makes everything better. Vibrant colors and superb level of quality, you’ll definitely enjoy. As with every Sony TV, this also has Motinoflow 200Hz.

Let’s talk about the sound. In this model, you’ll have a Rich bass compact speaker.  This newly designed speaker reproduces rich, powerful bass and low midrange sounds, adding to it an extra punch and depth when watching movies, music and dialogue. This bulkier speaker aesthetic helps in creating the perfect bass sound. It doesn’t make the bass sound distorted or muddy. The TV’s loudspeaker has also evolved and this feature is unique to Sony. This is called a Magnetic fluid Speaker technology. This allows a thinner more efficient loudspeaker that offers faithful reproduction of sounds. This includes crisp mids and highs. You’ll never go wrong with this kind of sound technology.
