Sony A9G OLED TV – Hands On at CES 2019

Sony’s OLED TV lineup also gets a refresh for 2019, with the Master Series A9G coming in 55-, 65-, and 77-inch sizes. These new models are thinner, and when combined with Sony’s SU-WL855 wall-mount system, the company claims they can reduce the distance to your wall by half, as compared to last year’s models. There’s a new, Sony-built panel controller, with “Pixel Contrast Booster,” for more color and contrast in bright areas of the image. Also improved is HD and SD content up-scaling. The OLED panel-as-speaker tech has been upgraded, and is now known as Acoustic Surface Audio+, and features two actuators and two subwoofers. Similar to the Z9G, the A9G can act as a center channel speaker too.

Both the Z9G and A9G models share the following features:

Android TV, with Google Assistant, and compatibility with Google Home, and Amazon Echo smart speakers
An RF-enabled smart remote
Of course, Sony’s got new non-Master Series updates as well, in both OLED and LED flavors:

A8G Series Bravia 4K OLED TVs in 55- and 65-inch sizes, get the new 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme, for better HDR performance, and IMAX Enhanced.

X950G Series 4K LED TVs in 55-, 65-, 75-, and 85-inch sizes, get Picture Processor X1 Ultimate for similar improvements to HDR performance, full-array local dimming backlight with X-tended Dynamic Range Pro, Netflix Calibrated Mode, IMAX Enhanced, plus both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

Last but not least, Sony is also updating its Blu-ray player offering, with the new Sony UBP-X800M2. It’s a slender and sleek UltraHD unit, with support for three flavors of HDR: Dolby Vision, HDR10, as well as the up-and-coming HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma). It will play almost every physical disc media out there, including SACD/DVD-A, and has built-in streaming options for Netflix and YouTube. There’s passthrough of both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, and word has it that the X800 does a pretty great job at upscaling non-4K content, just in case you’re non happy with how your 4K TV handles the task.

    I absolutely love Sony products I'm a massive fan. The only comment I have is they always downgrade their products ever so slightly, no HDMI 2.1 and also only 2 acoustic whilst the 2018 model had 3. I know LG invented this technology but even they are going to have 5 in their tv's which will a more realistic approach to Atmos sound. Sony just needs to be one more step ahead of the game as even Panasonic have their new tv with the new speaker firing up to give a more realistic atmos sound effect. As I say myself and my father are true Sony fans and have the majority of their products over the last 2 decade's. The pattern we have seen is they always just miss out 1/2 key points and then on the next version they add these features. They have done this for years now, so I can only think they are doing it to make more profit. This is a real shame if this is the case, they would make their loyal customers happier if they had these features from the start. The only other company I can see who do this is LG who must be a massive competitor within the industry. I also remember when Sony dominated the TV industry but did believe in flat screen technology and then all the other manufacturers followed this path and Sony was left behind. This was when the likes of Panasonic were the best with plasma Tv's and then Samsung came out from nowhere and took over the TV market. I am still a loyal fan Sony and love the pictures you produce on your new screens (LG) but please stay ahead and make a true impact from the competitors. You have made a comeback with the PS4 but please don't make the PS5 just miss out on something the XBOX X 2 has already, again you did this PS4 pro. I believe in you Sony as you have great creative ideas and software, just make that hardware 100% future proof so you stand out from the crowd every time.

    Don't clammer for HDMI 2.1 when you literally won't be doing anything with it, let alone know it's features people. I expected Sony to show something at CES but they literally just released new tv's just a couple months ago.

    Wish they'd ditch the back panel subwoofer and make the electronics a separate box like the Samsung connect. I don't need it to have an integrated speaker or food processor or toilet – I just want the TV please.
