Item #: 15865X900B
Sony's latest 4K Ultra HD TVs, like the 65" XBR-65X900B, provide a riveting viewing experience, plus a whole lot more. They've improved on the already-stellar picture quality of last year's models, and expanded your options for viewing true 4K video content.
This set's striking design has some major functional benefits. It's wedge-shaped, with the thick portion at the bottom. This has two advantages: it provides space for larger speakers, resulting in richer sound, and it lowers the TV's center of gravity, so it's less likely to tip over. The front-facing speakers are much bigger than those in typical LED TVs, and so is their sound.
The XBR-65X900B's most important upgrade is its ability to play the streamed 4K content available from Netflix® and Amazon Instant Video. Picture quality is, in a word, amazing. This set delivers the accurate, unhyped images we expect from Sony's premium XBR technology, along with the spectacular detail we expect from Ultra HD TV.
To enjoy the highest-quality 4K viewing experience at home, connect this TV to Sony's FMP-X10 4K Ultra HD media player, which makes it easy to download movies for rental or purchase, to watch at home anytime. Sony's Video Unlimited 4K online store already has over 200 titles. The FMP-X10 connects to the XBR-65X900B via HDMI, and provides the best possible picture quality.
The XBR-65X900B's screen contains over 8 million pixels (3,840 x 2,160) — the higher pixel density is easily visible. Equally important to the overall viewing experience is Sony's 4K expertise, which extends from "lens to living room." They build professional 4K cameras and cinema projectors, and Sony Pictures has a bigger catalog of 4K films than any other studio. This end-to-end approach helps ensure that XBR owners can have a truly theater-like experience at home.
True 4K content will be scarce for a while, but that shouldn't keep you from considering this TV. Based on ten years' experience upscaling movies to 4K in over 15,000 theaters worldwide, Sony has developed a processor so advanced it can upscale HD content to near-4K quality. This 4K X-Reality™ Pro chip enhances picture quality by analyzing and correcting images, resulting in impressively natural detail and color. You'll see the benefits of X-Reality Pro on everything from Blu-ray discs to Netflix® movies to video clips from your smartphone. X-Reality Pro enhances detail and reduces video noise by drawing on a database of real patterns, shapes and textures to display a startlingly lifelike picture. You also get Sony's Motionflow™ XR 960 blur reduction, which maintains clear motion even with fast-action content.
The XBR-65X900B has built-in Wi-Fi® so you can stream a variety of HD entertainment straight from the web. You can access an endless selection of entertainment at the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. And connect to even more movies, music and apps by wirelessly mirroring what's on your compatible Android™ smartphone.
This TV comes with not one but two remotes. The new "One-flick" touchpad has several advances over the typical button-style remote. First, it operates via Bluetooth instead of IR, so it's less finicky as far as needing to be precisely aimed at the TV's remote sensor. And the touchpad makes screen navigation and switching between apps quick and easy. The other remote is a standard IR clicker.
Movie theaters have switched to 4K projectors in recent years, and now you can enjoy amazing 4K picture quality at home. Ultra HD TVs with 4K resolution offer four times the detail of 1080p HDTVs. Some major TV makers offer media players so you can download and watch true 4K content for the best possible picture. Netflix® is already streaming some of their content in 4K, and other services plan to offer 4K video later this year.
Wonderful picture, great sound, decent software and simple use make this very good choice. You loose out on a new color enhancement technology, but it is minor given where you start from.
Pros: Features. Picture. Sound
I bought the first HDTV into the USA, in 1984, it cost $3800.00, and was imported from Germany. Since then I've owned Pioneer Elite Plasma, Panasonic Plasma, Sony 4K, and more. I paid The Geek Squad $300.00 to install and calibrate this 2015 TV. They got it unpacked, installed stands, lifted onto stack unit, and downloaded all 2016 firmware in under 5 minutes! Then they checked, brightness, color, contrast, black level etc. Then they compared calibrated, metered settings, with factory settings, and didn't change anything, perfect right out of the box! 2016 model, 900C costs $500.00 more. The $500.00 gets you copyright protection, for Sony, in case you try to pirate 4K Ultra DVD's. They're charging you $500.00 to protect Sony? This TV has a higher rating by Sony, than the new one.
Pros: Spectacular picture, very good built in sound, remote control simple and easy to use. It's the best TV at any price!
Cons: Weighs 150 pounds, 72 inches wide.
tv is a 2014 but the price was so good i deceided to buy it the picture is so clear and sharp the color fantastic and the sound probly equals a decect sound bar. ,the tv is very sleek and looks great on my bello black lacquered stand.tv came in perfectly boxed and quick deliyery. thank you crutchfeld.
Pros: great deal. great picture and sound. really doesent need a soundbar
Cons: nothing yet.
This is a superb TV. The picture quality is beyond excellent. Speakers are rockin. Love it. Here are some things you have to know regarding ownership. Be prepared to purchase a high dollar HDMI. It will make a huge difference on this set. I plugged in my stock OPPO 105 HDMI, which is an excellent stock HDMI cable and the picture quality was transformational. I am certain an Audioquest Vodka, or other high end HDMI would be a worthwhile investment. The old adage, you are only as good as your signal source\carrier applies here. It needs high end cabling. As for adjustments I am still learning, This is without a doubt the nicest TV I have ever owned. Thank You Crutchfield!!
Pros: Steller Picture and Audio Performance
I've had this TV for over 6 months now and i still say its the best. Easy to use and easy to set up. The picture and sound are awesome! i like how it works seamlessly with the PS4. and if the need arises you can use the speakers as fronts in a surround setup. all in all an unbelievable TV!
Cons: none that i can think of!
Very nice pic and sound top notch
Outstanding picture and sound quality. Very easy to set up with my cable and home sound system. This 4K TV is a replacement for a 12 year old Sony 50 inch and the improvements are unbelievable. A little expensive, but well worth it.
Pros: Beautiful picture and sound quality.
The quality of the picture is matched by no other (4K or other). The sound is incredible coming from a TV. At times I forget I have not turned on my Home Theater system. It makes watching television a visionary experience. The outward appearance of the system itself is sleek and my wife likes it, too. I went from a 55 inch LG (which I loved) to this 65 inch 4K Sony and it blew my mind. I have done a lot of research and found for the money that this is by far the best buy for the money.
Pros: Picture quality, Sound and Applications
I have been researching 4k displays for over a year and have been consistently impressed with the Sony XBR 65X900B. I have purchased from Crutchfield several times over the past few years so when it was time to purchase this Sony display I did not hesitate to go online with Crutchfield and place order. I placed order on a Saturday and received shipment the following Tuesday afternoon. The delivery was smooth and painless. Also, as Crutchfield and Sony suggest I had a friend help me unbox and set up the display, took less than 30 minutes and we were viewing a very impressive picture. I mainly watch Bluray content and the 4k upscaling provided by Sony is amazing. Thank you to all Crutchfield team members who made this transaction effortless and worry free. Nick
Pros: Amazing 4k upscaling, black levels and contrast is awesome, ability to move legs closer together to accommodate my furniture, very useful apps included.
Cons: Lack of currently available 4k content
The first one that I ordered from Crutchfield was a huge disappointment. It was broken... The only viewable area was about a 6 inch wide column on the left side of the screen. The rest of the screen was a series of colorful spaghetti-lines, and black. I called Crutchfield customer support. She quickly apologized and offered to ship me a new TV, with instructions to box up the broken one and let the shipper take it back. I waited a week for delivery of the second TV, and who'd of "thunk it" but when I set it up, number two was broken, or damaged or whatever. There was a 6-8" black bar the went up the right side of the screen. I called Customer service again, and again they apologized, and sent a third TV for delivery another week down the road. It arrived and I was almost afraid to unbox it, but the box was different so I assume it came from a "different lot" or something. Third time IS the charm because it looks just fine. But the TV is working and the picture is really beyond expectations. The 1080p content seems to be much more sharp than it was on my previous 1080p. The TV apparently up-converts 1080 to 4K quite well. There's not a whole lot of 4K content yet, but what I can see is really GOOD! Sony did a super job with this TV
Pros: Superior picture quality
Cons: Quality control...shipping me two defective sets. The price is still a bit steep, but its going to come down

Ultra 4K Resolution: See more on TV than ever before with over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160) compared to about 2 million (1,920 x 1,080) on your 1080p HDTV. Advanced picture processing also ensures that every single pixel displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail. It's the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced on a TV.
Note: Add a Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player (FMP-X10, sold separately) for exclusive access to the Video Unlimited 4K service, which hosts the largest selection of feature films and TV episodes in 4K Ultra HD for the home. Choose to download new releases and classic films for rental or purchase. Or choose from a vast library of included 4K videos.
HEVC Codec: Sony's 2014 4K Ultra-HD TVs are optimized to support the new HEVC codec that is needed for a variety of current and forthcoming 4K video services from Netflix and other providers without the need to buy additional update kits. The Sony Ultra-HD television also supports the latest HDMI 2.0 to connect external media players (sold separately) and 4K/60p playback for viewing 4K sports in the future. Current available 4K content includes:
4K X-Reality Pro Engine: Sony's new 4K X-Reality Pro Engine enhances Ultra-HD, HD, and SD images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and astounding color. This 4K television upscales your favorite TV shows, DVDs and Blu-ray movies, even video-on-demand content, and smartphone videos to Ultra-HD quality. The 4K X-Reality Pro Engine breathes new life into everything you see with phenomenal 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution.
Dynamic Edge-LED w/ Local Dimming + X-tended Dynamic Range: Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes that pop with vibrant color. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture. Sony's exclusive X-tended Dynamic Range technology produces the ultimate contrast for an LED-LCD TV. You'll get the peak brightness that LED TVs are know for as well as deeper blacks previously only associated with Plasma TVs. Keeping the light areas bright while keeping blacks truly black makes a huge difference in picture quality with greater detail in dark scenes and a more vivid picture in brighter scenes.
OptiContrast Panel w/ TRILUMINOS: The Sony Bravia XBR-X900B series television utilizes OptiContrast panel technology for improved brightness, deeper blacks, less reflection, and overall better picture accuracy. Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors; just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with natural skin tones. It's all thanks to a new TRILUMINOS display that gives images a heightened sense of depth.
MotionFlow XR 960 Technology: Sony's MotionFlow XR 960 technology feature a precise backlight control that is synchronized with the liquid crystal movement from frame-to-frame creating clearer, sharper moving images. MotionFlow XR 960 combines 120 frames-per-second with the TV's advanced LED backlight system to simulate a 960 Hz effect. MotionFlow XR 960 provides smooth and precise detail during fast-action scenes for fast action movies and sports by reducing blur caused by quick camera movements, enhancing image sharpness, and overall creating a clearer picture. You can select between various settings.
Automatic Intelligence: The TV's built-in Light Sensor automatically adjusts the picture brightness based on the amount of light in the room. As a result, you can enjoy automatic customized picture brightness and save energy without lifting a finger. 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.
Video Inputs: The Sony XBR-X900B series TV is equipped with HDMI (2.0), Component, and Composite video inputs. A back cover has to be removed to access these video inputs.
Note: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners with an RF-coaxial input, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
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.
MHL Compatible: The HDMI 2 and 4 inputs are designed for the connection of select mobile phones and other portable electronic devices using the new MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) standard. Simply plug your MHL compatible smartphone into the TV's HDMI 2 or 4 (MHL) input using the HDMI cable that is included with your mobile phone. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on the Sony TV from your mobile smartphone. The TV's IR remote can be used to control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Stop, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Menu navigation). Your MHL compliant device will also charge while connected to the TV's HDMI 2 or 4 input. To find MHL-certified devices, go to www.mhlconsortium.org.
Active 3D Technology: The Sony XBR-X900B series TV gives you the option to enjoy 3D (three-dimensional) pictures and graphics. You can enjoy an immersive, realistic movie and gaming experience in Ultra-HD 4K using the included active 3D glasses (two pair included). Enjoy 3D content from the TV's built-in network apps, or your HDMI connected Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, or gaming console. When using the active shutter glasses, the on-screen image is precisely synchronized and delivered with the full high-definition image intact, for an optimum 3D viewing experience. Sony's 3D technology displays high speed synchronized left- and right-eye images to deliver an amazing 3D experience. And since each frame you see is shown in high-definition, the 3D action still offers razor-sharp detail. You can adjust the following 3D settings.
Wide Mode: The Wide Mode feature allows you to select the screen display which fits the current video image and TV screen best. Based on the original signal source, you may see black bars around the picture or just on the both sides of the screen. Sometimes you will see the picture fill the full screen.
|Wide Mode||16:9 Original Source||4:3 Original Source|
|Wide Zoom||Enlarges the picture to fill the screen with minimal distortion.||Enlarges the center portion of the 4:3 picture proportionately, while the left and right edges of the screen are stretched to fill the screen.|
|Normal||Displays a 4:3 picture in its original aspect ratio when the original source is 4:3 (available for 480i or 480p sources).||Displays the 4:3 picture in its original size with black bars at the left and right sides to fill the screen (available for 480i or 480p sources).|
|Full||Displays the picture at its original size.||Stretches the entire 4:3 picture horizontally only to fill the screen.|
|Zoom||Enlarges the picture proportionately, both vertically and horizontally.||Enlarges the entire 4:3 picture proportionately to fill the screen (useful for watching Letterbox movies).|
Automatically changes screen settings base upon incoming video signal and content.
Picture Adjustments: The TV's picture adjustments can be made for a particular A/V input or for all inputs. You can also lock the television's picture adjustments to prevent the TV's Picture Settings from being changed.
PIP & PAP: The Sony LED-LCD TV offers PIP (picture in picture) and PAP (picture and picture).
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in the television's HDMI 1 input enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection, and USB input can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI IN 1 port. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.
Audio Outputs: The Sony HDTV offers analog and digital audio outputs. A back cover has to be removed to access these audio outputs.
65-Watt Speaker System: Unique to Sony TVs, Magnetic Fluid Speaker technology allows a thinner, more efficient loudspeaker that offers faithful reproduction of high-fidelity sound. The front-facing speaker system directs sound right at you with 65 watts of power.
Note: The speakers of this TV provide different sound images according to how you position the television. You can select between "Table-Top Stand" or "Wall Mount/Floor Stand" to provide the best sound quality based on the television's placement.
S-Force Front Surround: S-FORCE Front Surround provides a virtual surround experience made possible using just two front speakers. S-Force Front Surround simulates 5.1ch surround sound, with an enlarged sweet spot that everyone in the room can enjoy. You can active a 3D mode to generate a virtual three-dimensional sound effect to match your 3D video.
Preset Sound Modes + 7-Band EQ: The TV offers five preset sound modes (Standard, Music, Cinema, Game, Sports). The TV is also equipped with a 7-band EQ (100Hz, 200Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 5kHz, 10kHz). You can adjust the level of each band between -12 to +12 dB.
Advanced Audio Settings: The TV offers additional audio adjustments to enhance the television's sound.
Optional Wireless Sub: You can use Sony's optional wireless subwoofer (SWF-BR100, sold separately) to extend the bass response of the TV's sound. Simply connect the wireless transceiver supplied with the SWF-BR100 wireless subwoofer to the TV's analog audio output and USB port.

Miracast is a "screen mirroring" function which lets you wirelessly send the display from your compatible Windows 8.1+ or Android 4.2+ device (with support for Miracast) to the Sony TV. This allows you to view practically any content that is playing on your compatible Windows or Android device on your TV screen; no wireless router or access point required.
Note: The TV also supports one-touch NFC pairing for select Android devices (like Sony Xperia) with MiraCast. Simply touch your compatible Android mobile device to the Sony' TV's NFC logo for instant "screen-mirroring" from the mobile device to the television.

These adapters must be installed into the 4 threaded screw inserts in order to attach a wall-mount bracket to the TV; this is due to the wedge-shape design of the TV and the space needed for the TV's rear-panel jacks. The wall-mount adapters will accept M6 (6mm) screws. The TV weighs 101.2 lbs without the stand.
Note: When mounting the TV on the stand or a wall (with optional bracket) leave 4" of clearance on each side of the television and 11.875" above the television for adequate ventilation.
Attached AC Power Cord: The television if fitted with an attached 5' AC power cord which is terminated by a straight two-prong AC plug. The AC plug sits 1.6875" from the wall.

Latest reviews [ Kervin Dec 26, 2015 ]
There is no way to connect that TV to this receiver to use its speakers for any of the audio channels in a surround sound system. Also, we don't recommend doing that even if you had a different receiver who could send audio to the TV. TV speakers don't mix well with theater speakers and the quality difference would be glaringly apparent. [ Paul Jan 30, 2016 ] Staff

There is a lot going on with these models. To much to put into this area (better suited for shorty answers). I recommend calling an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 for this comparison. [ Paul Jan 25, 2016 ] Staff
