I have no idea, but I only use 2 tower speakers in stereo.
And a downgraded image processor (according to Sony's own nomenclature).
Your recommendation costs $700-1700 more, and have 3x worse contrast ratio!
Future proofing is great and all, but in your case if you're >100 miles from the targeted cities, I don't see how spending $500 extra could be worth it. Plus, 5 years from now, any ATSC 3.0 tuner you could buy will probably be better than the one integrated in the 900H; the first gen is never the best, and it might be missing features that come out over time.
My 900e has the same “downgraded” X1 image processor and the upscaling is excellent and the contrast is rated higher than the 900f which supposedly has a higher level processor.
