You're forgiven if you're wondering where the stand and speakers are. Both speak to the innovation of the Sony XBR-A1E Bravia OLED TV. Including the specs that come with being Sony's first* OLED set — eight million self-illuminating pixels, incredible viewing angles, HDR support, and insane black levels — this new TV takes advantage of what's unique about the technology. Like other OLED sets, it's insanely thin, but instead of hiding all the guts in a box underneath, or protruding from the back, it hides its powerful processors, inputs, and a subwoofer in a folding kickstand. As for speakers, it uses the entire screen itself to emit sound, creating a unification of image and audio normally only see in theaters. Available in 55, 65, and 75-inch models.
*Yes, technically, the XEL-1 was first. It also had a screen smaller than an iPad Pro.
As TV resolutions approach the limits of what we can actually see, color is fast becoming the next frontier for image quality improvement. The Samsung QLED TV makes a big improvement indeed. By adding a metal material to its nano-sized Quantum Dots, it makes leaps in both accuracy and efficiency. Indeed, it can express any color at any level of brightness, making for one of the most color-accurate displays ever seen on a consumer set. The TV also uses a single "invisible connection" cable to let you hide all your other devices without clutter. Available in three models with three mounting options: a no-gap wall-mount, a traditional, sculptural table stand, and an easel-like Studio Stand that makes even the most banal programming look like a work of art.
Televisions used to be simple. Just flip on the set and channel surf. And while it's great to have loads of options, switching inputs and remotes can be a real chore. AirTV Player aims to bring back the simplicity of the past while providing all the channels and services you already enjoy. Ideal for cord cutters, it allows you to get local channels without an input switch thanks to OTA antenna integration. It also won't require any contracts or commitments, and is a great alternative to the restrictions you experience as a cable subscriber. Download apps and integrate content sources for an easier, option-packed viewing experience.
