Although the sturdy construction contributes to its durability, it also results in considerable weight. This can make installation and movement difficult for some people, especially if you plan to mount it on the wall without professional help. Despite the quality of the screen, reflectivity can be an issue in brightly lit environments . In bright environments, reflections can affect.

Connectivity

The Sony BRAVIA XR-65A95L stands as a monument to complete connectivity, offering a diverse range of both physical and wireless options to meet the needs of entertainment enthusiasts. It has two HDMI 2.1 ports , making a more than important difference for video game lovers and fans of high-resolution content.

These ports allow for higher refresh rates and greater bandwidth, ensuring a smooth gaming experience and exceptional video playback. The inclusion of multiple USB ports provides additional flexibility for connecting external devices such as storage drives, media players and peripherals. This makes it easier to play multimedia content.

In addition to its physical connections, it offers complete wireless connectivity, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth . This simplifies streaming content from mobile devices, making it easy to play music, photos and videos quickly and easily. Although it has two HDMI 2.1 ports, some advanced users may want more to get the most out of connectivity.

The layout of the ports on the back may be uncomfortable for some users, especially if they plan to mount it on the wall. A more accessible design could improve the experience of connecting and disconnecting devices . In short, it provides very complete connectivity that exceeds expectations. Although for its price it could include some better options.

Image quality

The Sony BRAVIA XR 65A95L features a QD-OLED panel that combines the best of two leading technologies in a single display. Quantum dots (QDs) improve color accuracy, while OLED technology delivers deep blacks and exceptional contrast. The result is stunning color reproduction and sharp details in every scene, delivering realism every time.

XR technologies , such as Cognitive Processor XR and XR Triluminos Pro , work together to deliver a significant improvement in image quality. The cognitive processor analyzes multiple elements in real time, optimizing the image to offer a more realistic and immersive visual experience. Thanks to the ability of the pixels to be turned off individually, it achieves infinite dynamic contrast.

This means blacks are truly deep, bringing exceptional visual richness and depth to every scene, whether dark movies or bright images. Support for HDR formats such as Dolby Vision Gaming and HDR10 further enhances the viewing experience, enabling wide dynamic range content playback with compatible content.

Brilliant colors and details in the lightest and darkest areas stand out, offering a cinematic experience in the comfort of home. Although OLED technology greatly reduces the risk of image retention, some extremely sensitive users may notice this phenomenon in specific situations. The image quality and technologies come with a significant price.

Sound

The audio quality of the Sony XR-65A95L is a symphony of innovation, power and advanced technologies that elevate the listening experience to an exceptional level. The 60W output power is a statement of intent. It delivers powerful and clear audio, making it an ideal choice for those looking for a home theater experience without the need for external audio systems.

The inclusion of Dolby Atmos takes the sound experience to new heights. Three-dimensional surround audio technology creates a sound field that puts the viewer at the center of the action, delivering a truly immersive and cinematic listening experience. Voice Zoom 2 technology focuses on dialogue clarity, even in noisy environments, which is a big plus.

This feature is especially valuable during intense action scenes or when ambient sound might interfere, ensuring that dialogue is always clear and understandable. XR Sound Position and XR Surround, these advanced technologies adjust the position of sound based on the location of elements on the screen, offering a more immersive and realistic listening experience.

Surround effects expand beyond the physical limits of the TV, creating a feeling of space and depth. Although this model offers exceptional audio quality, discerning audiophiles may prefer external sound systems for an even more personalized experience. This could be considered a disadvantage for those looking for maximum performance.
