Thanks for the detailed info!
I’ve just moved country and am in the pleasant situation of having an excuse to buy a whole new setup; I was planning the C9, but seeing as the Sony just came out and reviews of previous generation looked pretty damn good - ended up ordering the A9G today. My previous set was also the ZT60, so pretty curious to see the differences and hopefully few disappointments.
Not to flog a dead horse; but the game mode thing seems a bit odd to me. On the ZT60, I had everything connected via AV Receiver, and the TV would detect game content and automatically enable Game Mode. That’s a 5-6 year old set; seems odd newer sets cannot do a similar thing (Well other than ATTL or whatever which seems few or far between). Bit of a step backwards.
It seems differences between A9F/G are minimal? Different stand (does the A9G sit more upright on its own stand?) and remote; whereas everything else looks the same?
Sounds like possibly some minor improvements to A9G, but no reason they couldn’t be backported as same processor + panel as previous model?
Seems like weird approach by Sony *shrug*
That said; looking forward to taking delivery of this and putting it through its paces + looking forward to hearing feedback from others before mine arrives.
