TV buying guide: Everything to consider when buying a TV

Tony Ibrahim | Aug. 10, 2015
Should you buy a UHD TV? What about OLED? Which ecosystem do I want to belong to? Will it work with my smart TV? Does size matter? All this and more answered in our comprehensive TV buying guide.

Sound dictates the design of Sony's premium televisions. They boast a 'peak design', which makes them thicker at the bottom than they are at the top. The extra space on each side is used as a chamber for its mid- and bass-driver.

All of them are treated as exposed showpieces and the two drivers are of the magnetic-fluid variety. This means the speakers can be pushed harder because the magnetic fluid lowers their operating temperature. And because magnetic fluid speakers have a smaller footprint, larger speakers can be packed into the smaller space.

Sony is not only focussing on the hardware; its televisions support its HRA standard for high fidelity audio.

And of course, how big is too big

Buying the largest set available can dwarf an entire room, leave a creak in your neck and turn an immersive experience into one that is uncomfortable.

The rules on this aren't set in stone. In fact, we've written a whole separate guide designed to help you calculate the right size TV for any one room. You can read it all here.
