2.2 Channel Acoustic Surface Audio+

These new 4K TVs from Sony feature speakers built in inside the screen itself. Sony calles it the acoustic surface audio+ technology. Company’s official statement read, “Sound comes directly from the screen in the Master Series A9G. Sound-from-Picture Reality faithfully reproduces the position of the sound on the screen so when actors are speaking, the sound appears to be coming directly from them and not from a speaker at the bottom of the screen.”

It continued, “Acoustic Surface Audio+ with two actuators and two powerful subwoofers deliver multi-dimensional sound that immerses you in a captivating audio-visual entertainment experience. In addition, a TV Centre Speaker Mode provides choice to use the TV as the centre speaker when utilising a home theatre system to unleash an immersive cinematic experience.”

Netflix calibrated mode

These latest Sony 4K TVs also features a picture mode developed to enjoy Netflix Originals called the Netflix Calibrated Mode. Sony said that this mode reproduces the same picture quality on the TV as the creators intended.

Sony’s official statement read, “On A9G you can also experience the cinema thrills with Dolby Vision that brings scenes vividly to life for authentic viewing, while Dolby Atmos fills the room with immersive surround sound. In addition the TV comes with eARC HDMI input to connect and enjoy Dolby Atmos content on supported audio devices.”
