Thanks to the adjustable stand with aluminium centre plate, users can place the TV and soundbar on a desktop so it can be used as a gaming monitor.

Hi Robert,

When can we expect the A90K 48" to drop? I am very interested in this panel.

@SpinDoctor, Sony's new 2022 A90K is only available in 48" and 42". You are correct that for larger Sony 2022 OLED class TVs you have the new A80K series and the carryover A90J.

If you are interested in 55" or 65" class you have Sony's new A95K Master Series QD OLED TVs that we just started shipping today.

Question A question for Robert

https://www.techradar.com/news/firmw...2-and-c2-oleds

Already topping our list of the best LG TVs you can buy, the new 03.20.24 system software for the flagship TVs brings a number of key improvements, the most significant being the addition of Dolby Vision IQ Precision Detail technology.

The feature is an all-new picture enhancement system that aims to reveal extra details in especially dark scenes.
Will the Sonys, particularly the A90K, be getting this Dolby Vision update at some point?

Thanks

Does anyone have any tips for how to remove motion processing on these? I can turn off Cinemotion, Motion Flow And BFI, but that doesn't entirely fix the problem. Movement looked better with BFI on, but the flickering quickly drove me crazy.

Upgrading isn't without drawbacks it seems...

Was it just 24p content you were having issues with? I noticed you tried Game Mode to help, which I don't think should be necessary. I wonder if there's an issue with the player to TV chain?

Also looking at the specs, it's a 100hz panel, so there's always going to be some interpolation.

Interesting. Yeah, I did put it in game mode which seems to be the best adjustment so far and the setup is pretty straightforward. I'm just playing back Blu-rays from a Region-free Sony BDP-S3700 with a direct line to the TV itself. Movement seems to be the most noticeable on Raiders of the Lost Ark, but I do want to put in Jaws tomorrow and run through some spots to see if anything stands out.

It is telling that the problem doesn't seem to crop up as often with streaming using the TV itself - only discs being played on the blu-ray player.

If you can try some 24hz content from a USB stick plugged into your TV.

I was thinking about returning my LG C2 and getting the a90k. The LG is really nice but is giving me headaches with all the inputs and audio. Plus I seen the 48"on display at at a high end store and the A90K looks and feels more premium and better built than the LG. The picture looks more natural and life like. What are your thoughts?

I would get the A9S instead if you don't care about HDMI 2.1 or any gaming features. It's cheaper, brighter, has a better screen finish, better remote, and it's not run on Google TV.
