If you’ve had your eyes on Sony’s gorgeous new A1E OLEDs but wished there was a 77″ version, today’s announcement is great news. Pre-orders for the Sony XBR-77A1E ($19,999) begin today, and delivery plus in-store sales will begin in late July, which is mere weeks away. The 77″ A1E will be available from Best Buy, Amazon, and other authorized Sony dealers.
This is Sony’s largest OLED, and it offers stunning picture quality.

You can expect to see spectacular imagery when watching the XBR-77A1E thanks to its 4K resolution and support for HDR with wide color gamut. Four HDMI inputs with HDCP 2.2 allow you to connect multiple HDR sources. Currently, this TV plays HDR10 content Sony will issue a firmware update in the future that will add support for Dolby Vision.
Other input and connectivity options include three USB ports, an optical digital audio input, Chromecast built-in, support for Miracast, and even composite video inputs for old-school analog video.
Of course this TV, like the 55″ and 65″ A1E models, comes packed with smart features including voice search and a plethora of streaming apps.
OLEDs excel at reproducing ultra-deep blacks. Their emissive design allows each individual pixel to shut off completely. This makes for a truly stunning viewing experience in dark rooms, especially when it comes to movies with a lot of dark scenes. If you want one of the greatest viewing experiences money can buy, the XBR-77A1E promises to fulfill your AV wishes in style.
