The A9F’S most out­stand­ing fea­ture is its 4K UHD (3840x2160) OLED panel. There’s noth­ing in the Led-back­lit LCD uni­verse that can match the blacks and over­all rich image of OLED, though there are those who pre­fer the bright­ness that can en­able a good LED TV to make high dy­namic range (HDR) ma­te­rial re­ally pop. The view­ing an­gles are very wide, there are no light­ing ar­ti­facts, and screen uni­for­mity is nigh on per­fect. And ac­tu­ally, the A9F truly sounds good enough that you should wait on buy­ing a sound­bar or other out­board au­dio sys­tem un­til you’ve un­boxed this TV and lis­tened to it. The A9F sup­ports most of the sur­round-sound for­mats with the ex­cep­tion of Dolby At­mos, and the A9F is the first OLED to sup­port EARC (en­hanced Au­dio Re­turn Chan­nel), with its abil­ity to trans­mit eight channels at 192khz.—
