Brunzy: That’s an older model, a standard wall mount will do.
Just be aware of the optical and Ethernet plugs, you either need 90 * adaptors or a bracket that sits out more from the wall

 

 

 

I can loose the Ethernet but I need the optical

FYI anyone else with a Sony , here is a list of models and their compatibility, you will see that some 2013 2014 are not suitable for standard brackets without adaptors etc.
The bottom holes are not on the same surface as the top holes , so you cant use a normal mount.

Yours will work fine with a generic bracket. Just get one that says it is for TVs 32-55". It will have screws in it that will fit the screw holes on the back of your TV.

 

If you cannot find a right angled optical cord (here is one at AliExpress or one in NZ here), you may just need to use the spacers that will be included with the bracket to make the arms of the bracket that attach to the back of the TV stand off the TV (as opposed to being directly on the back of the TV).

just buy a wall mount that suits a 200x300mm VESA configuration.

 

the mount will likely give you plenty of room for your cables in the back unless you go for the slimmest one available.

 

Most you are able to move the TV round on a little to make the cables fit.

When I put my 46 bravos on wall in new house 1918 Villa, discovered previous owner hadn't drilled into any of the studs only 100 year old plaster board!

Use a tape measure to find out the vesa hole distances then head off to mitre10 or Noel lemings or similar.

Buy a stud finder.

  Stud finder vs the old knocking trick?

I got combined stud finder and electric power finder.

Old houses may have atypical power cord placement. Was also useful when I started drilling holes and opening walls to lay Ethernet cable.

this is the wall mount I use on all my tvs (2x 2017 sonys  55" and 65", lg, samsung, veon).  I get them because

 

  • theyre cheap $19.90
  • they are very close to the wall but not too close I cant plug in a power plug
  • they are small, only requiring 2 holes in the wall
  • very easy to level
  • very easy to put the tv on and take it off (ive wall mounted 55" tvs by myself with this one)
  • very secure
  • since only a single bar easy to place around power sockets etc (the big bulky ones can be a PITA).
  • using these on 40" all the way up to 65" (have a smaller version for my sons 32")

 

 

Ive gone through a few different wall mounts (I have about 5 in boxes here of different brands) and now always just get this one.

 

your tv has standard VESA screw holes in it, take 5 minutes to mount.

As I mentioned earlier a standard wall mount will work, I had this TV mounted in guest room and I have the KDL-60W600B mounted in its place now. Both used standard wall mounts.

The stand it comes with is not a wall mount.

Both TVs I purchased brand new from JB Hifi a few years ago and neither had wall mounts inside

why not mount the TV and see if you actually NEED the right angle adapter?
