No pressure, no commission — just lots of good advice from our highly trained staff.

Sony's KDL-46EX710 is smarter than the average TV. LED backlighting and Motionflow™ blur reduction work together to keep images looking crisp and natural at all times. This model is also Internet-ready — simply run a cable to your home network to watch movies from your Netflix® Instant Queue, video clips from YouTube®, and more.

Eco-savvy design lowers your energy costs — automatically
LED backlights are more efficient than conventional fluorescent backlights, and the KDL-46EX710 has some other clever energy-saving features up its sleeve. Sony's "Presence Sensor" detects if you've stepped away from your TV and automatically turns the picture off. An "Energy Saving" switch reduces the set's power consumption to zero, which is a handy option if you're leaving town for a few days or going on vacation. And a built-in room light sensor enables the TV to adjust the screen brightness based on your room's lighting conditions.

Connect to all the latest HD sources — and to the Web
Four HDMI inputs let you enjoy the best possible picture from high-def sources like Blu-ray players, satellite or cable TV boxes, and HD game consoles. Connect this Sony to your broadband Internet service and you can use the TV's remote to surf 25+ web "channels" without leaving the comfort of your couch. If you'd rather avoid the clutter of running a wire, pick up Sony's Wi-Fi® adapter.

Video Features

Edge LED Backlight: The Sony Bravia KDL-46EX710 TV utilizes edge LED backlighting for an infinite dynamic contrast, smooth motion performance, and energy savings inside a slim designed cabinet.

Bravia Engine 3 Technology: Bravia Engine 3 is the newest fully digital video processor from Sony. It uses a collection of enhanced algorithms to significantly reduce noise, enhance overall image detail, and optimize contrast so every scene produces sharp, vibrant, life-like images.

NTSC/ATSC/QAM Tuners: The TV is equipped with an analog NTSC tuner, a digital ATSC/8VSB tuner, and a digital QAM tuner for receiving unscrambled digital cable channels. It is not CableCARD compatible. You do not need to connect an external HDTV set-top box in order to receive High-Definition programming.

Native Resolution: The KDL-46EX710 has a full HD native resolution of 1920 x 1080 with over 2 million pixels (more than twice the pixels of 720p HDTV). The TV's four HDMI inputs can accept 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p and 1080p (60/24Hz) signals, and the two component video inputs can accept 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p signals. All video signals from standard definition and high definition are upconverted to 1080p.

HD Video Inputs: The Sony Bravia KDL-46EX710 provides High Definition HDMI and component video inputs.

  • 4 HDMI (ver.1.4) Inputs: The KDL-46EX710 features four HDMI 1.4 inputs (2 Rear/2 Side). The HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) terminals provide an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV and any HDMI-equipped A/V equipment.. The HDMI input will accept 1080 (60/24Hz), 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. The rear HDMI 4 input shares a 3.5mm audio jack with the television's PC input. With an HDMI-to-DVI cable, you can connect the TV to a DVI-equipped A/V component. When connecting to a DVI-equipped component, the 3.5mm audio input is used and separate minijack audio cable must be connected.
  • 2 Component Video Inputs: The two rear-panel component video inputs will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. If needed, Component Video 1 can be used as a composite video input instead.

ARC (Audio Return Channel) Function: The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing system flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. The ARC function enables digital output of sound using the television's HDMI In 1 port and can only be operated when the TV is connected to an audio receiver that also supports the ARC function. When the Input Source of the television is the TV (antenna), the ARC function allows audio from the TV to be heard through a connected AV receiver via the television's HDMI 1 input. The audio is sent from the TV to your receiver via a single HDMI cable without the need for a separate optical cable.

Note: When connecting a digital audio system that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC) technology, connect to HDMI IN 1 with an HDMI cable. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped at 24p. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this television producing images that are smooth and natural looking.

Motion 120Hz Technology: Motionflow is a proprietary technology that displays TV broadcasts at an outstanding high-frame rate. By displaying pictures at a higher frame rate than standard, Motionflow reduces motion artifacts in high-speed sports footage for smooth, natural motion reproduction. This allows you to experience smooth motion detail and clarity using Motionflow 120Hz technology. Motionflow 120Hz technology doubles the frame rate from the standard 60 frames per second and applies Image Blur Reduction technology to deliver a crisp, fluid and realistic viewing experience during fast-action scenes. The Motionflow 120Hz feature has three settings to choose from - High, Standard, or Off.

Infinite Dynamic Contrast Ratio: Dynamic contrast ratio compares the luminance of a 100 IRE (white) signal with that of a 0 IRE (black) signal. When the TV receives a 0 IRE signal the backlight is turned off and the luminance measurement is 0.00 cd/m2. The resulting dynamic contrast ratio is infinite.

Ambient Sensor: The Ambient Sensor automatically optimizes the picture settings according to the ambient light in the room. The television's Ambient Sensor automatically senses ambient lighting conditions and changes the TV's display settings to optimize picture quality. The sensor detects ambient light levels to adjust the brightness and color temperature of the picture. With this feature you can have the best picture quality under your room's lighting conditions. As a result, you get a natural looking picture whether you are watching TV late at night or during the day.

LightSensor Technology: The television's integrated LightSensor technology automatically increases or decreases the level of brightness of the TV's backlight based on your room's lighting conditions. When you dim the lights to watch a movie, the TV's sensor dims the backlight, which also helps reduce unnecessary power consumption.

Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE): The televisions Advance Contrast Enhancer (ACE) automatically adjusts backlight and contrast to the most suitable setting judging from the brightness of the screen. This setting is especially effective for dark scenes, and will increase the contrast distinction for the darker picture scenes. The ACE can be set to High, Medium, Low, or Off.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The television has an excellent picture. The colors are vibrant with very good blacks and
consistent lighting over the entire screen. I have not noticed any "light areas" in the
center of the screen nor have I noticed any blur with the 120 refresh rate. . The thin
design looks great in my family room. The TV sound is OK, but this is not an issue;
the TV is connected to a surround sound system. The price drop made this a great buy.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I thought that all the LCD TV's were the same, but not any more. There is a visible difference in the picture quality on this Sony. I have had other brands up until now and didn't know. I am having a bit of a problem getting the internet function on the TV to keep working though.

I bought this TV for my bedroom and could not be happier. I went from a 720p to this one
and the difference in the picture is unbelievable. I'm ok with the sound. It is not connected
to a surround sound system but for what I use it for the sound is fine. I'm glad I went with
this Sony.
