Sony A9F TV

 

The Sony A9F is an outstanding OLED TV, one of the best we have ever tested. Like all OLEDs, it delivers perfectly deep blacks, and has wide viewing angles. HDR looks great thanks to the excellent wide color gamut, and the best color volume that we've...

Excellent dark room performance ; Near-instantaneous response time ; Image remains accurate when viewed at an angle

Could experience permanent burn-in ( ; ) ; Brightness is limited in white scenes.

Sony A9F Master Series 4K UHD OLED TV review: A top-notch TV with the best sound in the business

 

Sony's XBR65A9 65-inch 4K UHD OLED TV offers great color, excellent blacks, and wonderful HDR. It also offers the best sound in a flat-panel TV, bar none. The only problem is that there's a significantly cheaper, but highly worthy competitor in the...

Rich OLED color and deep blacks ; Excellent HDR with more than 750 nits ; Great sound (for a flat-screen)

Some slight moiré during detailed pans ; Significantly more expensive than the competition

The A9F is an excellent TV—one of the best out there. You could buy it and never suffer a minute of buyer’s remorse; unless of course, you looked around at the significantly cheaper competition, which includes a couple of TVs from Sony.

Sony AF9 OLED Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Sony AF9 review: Sony's Master Series OLED is absolutely stunning, but it certainly doesn't come cheap. Is it worth it? In short, yes.

Superlative image quality ; Above average audio performance ; Premium design and finish

Prepare to pay a high price

With the AF9, Sony has created something epic.

Sony AF9 (KD-65AF9) hands on review: price, release date and a first look at the Master Series OLED 4K HDR TV

 

We got up close and personal with Sony's latest high-end display, and the OLED poster boy does NOT skimp on the wow factor

Powerful performance from a new X1 Ultimate picture processor ; Great sound from Acoustic Surface Audio+ ; Oreo TV OS is the best Android smart TV offering yet

No Freeview Play ; 'Lean back' design is still a bit Marmite

Sony KD-65AF9 hands on

 

Sony's just taken the wraps off its new Master Series TVs, the AF9 and ZF9 - and we've already had our hands on the AF9 OLED.

It's impossible to draw firm conclusions from manufacturer-controlled demonstrations at an event such as this. But on first acquaintance the AF9 is very impressive, and almost certainly a step up from the much-loved A1.

Sony KD-55AF9 4K HDR OLED TV review

 

Unveiled with much hullabaloo earlier this year, the Sony AF9 nonchalantly sets a staggeringly high benchmark for OLED picture quality. Boasting Kubrickian styling and a feature roster even the jaded will lust after, this TV is, quite frankly, an...

Sony Bravia A9F OLED (XBR-55A9F) review

 

Sony's flagship OLED TV drops jaws and empties pockets

Nuanced UHD HDR images ; Impressive upscaling ; Audio+ sound system ; Android Oreo smart platform

Lean back design ; Reworked image presets ; Black level crushing

A shiny new X1 Ultimate image processor, and the arrival of the Android Oreo TV OS, makes this a panel every 4K enthusiast will be lusting after. Even better, as it's coupled with an enhanced version of its Acoustic Surface Audio technology, it sounds...

Sony Bravia AF9 (KD-65AF9) review: One OLED to rule them all - now for less

 

Stupendous image quality, fantastic sound and one-of-a-kind design – the AF9 gets frighteningly close to OLED perfection

Outstanding sound quality for a TV ; Class-leading upscaling, motion and gradation ; Excellent HDR10 presentation due to dynamic tone-mapping

Dolby Vision looks too dark ; Tilt-back design divides opinion ; Youtube app doesn't support HDR

The Sony AF9 is a very worthwhile upgrade over the AF8. Offering four full-bandwidth HDMI 2.0b ports, lower input lag, a more responsive Android TV interface and some dramatic picture quality improvements, the AF9 shows just how far OLED technology has...

Sony KD55AF9BU television review

  (Rating Hidden)

We've already reviewed the lion's share of Sony's 2018 line-up, but it decided to surprise us by releasing a new OLED, the 55-inch KD55AF9BU. It's part of what Sony calls its Master Series, which has the very best image technology Sony has created,...
