Sony 2013 Bravia TVs pricing and availability announced


Distinguished Member
And they're competitive

Sony has sent us pricing details for its 2013 Bravia range of TVs as well as confirming their availability for pre-order.

“Sony continues to deliver pioneering technologies to consumers, providing superb picture quality with rich, vibrant images that bring TV to life,” said Chris Trewhitt, Product Marketing Manager TV, Sony UK “This year, Sony lends its unique audio technologies to the television line, along with engaging experiences such as One-touch mirroring that instantly lets viewers show content from select NFC-enabled phones to the big screen. We invite consumers to go into stores and see it with their own eyes.”

The W series of LED BRAVIA televisions includes the W9, W8, and W6. In addition to being Wi-Fi enabled, all W-series models utilize Sony’s X-Reality PRO picture processor and also employs Motionflow XR which is definitely one of the best interpolation engines out there.


New in 2013, the W9 TV incorporates TRILUMINOS Display LED backlighting by integrating Quantum Dot technology with Sony’s own display technologies, the W9 is therefore said to deliver a significantly wider colour gamut but we'll have to see how much use that actually is in the home, where we have next to nothing to take advantage of it.

The W9 model integrates a 1.2m long duct speaker cabinet design folded into a compact unit that’s hidden behind the TV screen. Though the speakers are hidden, Sony naturally says that the newly-designed speaker cabinet is much better.

All W-Series TV models include screen mirroring via Wi-Fi, with the W9 and W8 models shipping with an NFC remote for a complete One-touch experience. The W8 is One-touch compatible with an accessory NFC remote available. Additionally, all three series are MHL-ready for wired mirroring capabilities.

As for pricing, as per last year, Sony is being very competitive. The W9 model comes available in a 55-inch, 46-inch and 40-inch screen size at a suggested retail price of £1,400 and tops out at £2,400. The W8 model is available in 55-inch, 47-inch and 42-inch screen sizes, and starts at £1000 with the 55-inch model £1,850. The W6 model comes in 42-inch and 32-inch screen sizes and from a suggested retail of £550.

We'll get these reviewed, soon as we have the chance.
