LG's first allocation of 48" CX series are arriving the week of June 1st.

Also wanted to mention that Sony's A8H has less aggressive ABL vs. LG's C9 and CX.

Likely due to Sony's concentration on preserving the power and peak luminance for a 2% window size to show off the specular highlights in HDR content and to reduce the ABL.

Robert- Given your comments on the ABL differences between the Sony and LG, would you recommend the LG CX for a bright room application over the Sony or are the ABL differences not that significant?

Good question. The difference is moderate, but when watching HDR content the overall screen is slightly brighter on the CX than Sony's A8H, but when a HDR scene has high peak luminance specular highlights the A8H is brighter and has more detail and color volume.

With FHD/SDR content they look similar to each other. Low luminance areas of the image are also more detailed on the A8H.

We studied this at our last side-by-side evaluation and testing of the A8H and CX.

Here's the full 2 hour raw recording, no editing.

Re-reading it, not directly, no. That is probably just a leap my brain made after reading their CX review and their side by side. They do have a bit of a complaint about the ABL on the CX, and then their side by side shows a higher peak brightness in HDR for the C9 vs the CX, so probably where my brain the connection between the two. Though in general they rate the C9 higher in several individual tests (HDR movie and game scores. Brightness. Color volume), despite the same overall score, and a slightly high post-cal accuracy (and a notably higher out of the box accuracy).

I'd almost be tempted by the Sony based on what you mentioned about volume and specular highlights. But, for some reason Sony skipped HDMI 2.1 for this year (though I'm assuming/guessing there will be an A9 announced with such)

I don't see any need for HDMI 2.1, unless you are a serious PC gamer or for a 8K TV.

Sony's did add aARC and that's a HDMI 2.1 spec that is compatible for HDMI 2.0b inputs if the TV manufacturer wants to upgrade to eARC, which Sony did for the A8H.
