Sony Reveals Prices, Availability for  New Master Series TVs

With 3 HDR

Sony's much-ballyhooed Bravia Master Series OLED and LCD displays, to be demonstrated at CEDIA Expo 2018 next week, now have starting prices and ship dates.

Announced in July, the new Android-powered TVs include the A9F OLED series and Z9F LCDs. They feature several “firsts” for Sony and the industry, including HDMI eARC, the technology that enables pass-through of high-resolution soundtracks over a single HDMI cable.
