XR-Powered Image Quality Features
The Sony A95L is packed with the company’s XR technologies, which aim to provide crystal clear clarity and deep and detailed colour production. The Cognitive Processor XR powers it all by adjusting the dynamic contrast and bringing out colors, replicating “how we see the real world.” This is backed with the fantastic QD-OLED display optimized to deliver a broad palette of shades and hues, inky deep blacks, and 200% more brightness than the previous series.
The Sony A95L Series also supports Dolby Vision, IMAX Enhanced, HDR10, and Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode to provide the best image quality possible for any content viewed on the display.
For SDR content with less-than-stellar image quality, the TV will deploy XR Clear Image technology to reduce noise, bring back lost detail, and use XR 4K Upscaling to get the content to near-4K resolution.
Thanks to the synergy between Sony and PlayStation, the A95L Series TVs feature native support for the PlayStation 5, and it will automatically optimize the best picture quality possible.
It also supports HDMI 2.1 features like 4K/120, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) to provide high-performance gaming at maximum visual fidelity. The support for VRR is a crucial feature as it will allow you to play games (that support it) at their native 4K resolution with unlocked frame rates instead of using the Performance mode that usually down-grades visuals to maintain a high frame rate.
Additionally, the Sony A95L Series is the first television from Sony to feature the native PlayStation Remote Play feature, which allows you to play games directly from your PS5 even if it’s not connected to the television. However, note that the PS5 must be powered on and connected to a high-speed internet connection for the smoothest streaming quality.
Audio Quality and Surround
The Sony BRAVIA A95L Series TV sports a 20W + 20W + 10W + 10W speaker configuration and is powered by Acoustic Surface Audio+, which helps calibrate the precise sound location for an immersive experience. It also features Voice Zoom 2, which analyzes voices and improves clarity – perfect for poorly mastered movies or feature films by Christoper Nolan.
The TV also features XR Surround, which creates a virtual surround using just the TV speakers and is compatible with Dolby Atmos. What’s more, thanks to the Acoustic Center Sync, you can turn both your A95L and your soundbar into a center speaker to get an extra boost in sound quality and audio positioning.
The Sony A95L Series televisions can be positioned in two ways to match your needs. Thanks to its multi-point positioning system, the TV can be set to the standard low profile for immersive viewing or raised to accommodate a soundbar.
Sony A95L Series TV Alternatives
The LG G3 OLED is the best TV you can buy right now. With its new Micro Lens Array layer, it is one of the brightest OLED panels out there. It also supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, and full HDMI 2.1 for 4K/120Hz gaming with VRR and low input lag.
If you are looking for a slightly more budget option with most of the features of A95L, then the Sony BRAVIA 65A80K should fit the bill. With the same XR-powered image quality features and PlayStation 5 support, the A80K is just as good but may not be as bright and will not feature PlayStation Remote Play support.
If Sony or LG is not your style, the Samsung S90C is another fantastic option. With a Pantone-validated OLED panel, Neural Quantum Processor 4K, and a LaserSlim design, the S90C is a stunner in every way. The TV also supports 144Hz thanks to its Motion Xecelerator Turbo Pro for butter-smooth gameplay.
Summing It Up
The Sony BRAVIA A95L Series televisions are undoubtedly pricey. Still, they offer tremendous value for money and pack in enough features to be future-proof for the next 5-7 years.
If you have deep pockets, the Sony A95L Series is a fantastic choice for its excellent image quality, myriad features, and exclusive PlayStation 5 support that should elevate your cinema and gaming experiences up a notch.
Of course, a similar experience can also be had with OLED TVs from LG and Samsung at a slightly cheaper cost, but you will lose out on PlayStation Remote Play and PS5-centric features.
