These TVs are engineering marvels that are meticulously designed with the latest and greatest proprietary TV technology. The MASTER Series TVs deliver Sony’s best picture quality, no matter what you like to watch.
    • Intelligent processing, ultimate realism.
      Simply put, our proprietary 8K HDR Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate is our best processor, ever. Object-based rendering happens in real time at lightning speed to remaster and upscale everything you see to near-8K HDR quality. Everything on the screen is identified, analyzed and optimized individually to adjust the overall contrast, sharpness and color for a picture that looks nearly identical to the real thing.
    • Experience a more natural picture with 8K X-Reality PRO & Object-Based Super Resolution
      Every object, accurately displayed. With Object-Based Super Resolution in combination with 8K X-Reality PRO™, you’ll see lifelike detail, textures, and clarity in everything you watch. Leveraging intelligent 8K database, pictures look cleaner with less on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by Sony’s best 8K HDR Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate.
    • Enhanced brightness, incredible contrast with Backlight Master Drive and 8K X-tended Dynamic Range Pro 20x
      Sony’s Backlight Master Drive dynamically changes the light levels in sections of the screen depending on the content, resulting in a dramatic increase in contrast and brightness. Add in 8K X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO 20x which gives the screen 20 times the contrast range of a conventional LED-edge lit TV. Backlight Master Drive’s calibrated beam design accurately send light only where it is needed for more accurate contrast. Balancing the light output across the screen, darker scenes get darker brighter scenes get brighter.
    • An immersive audio experience
      Four front facing speakers across the chassis of the TV create wide, authentic sound that seems to come from where the action occurs. With action and sound precisely aligned, your viewing becomes so much more immersive, no matter what you’re watching.
    • See the big picture with 8K HDR, IMAX Enhanced and Dolby Vision
      High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. 8K resolution and HDR video content combine to bring dazzling detail, color and contrast to everything you watch, while keeping a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. IMAX Enhanced™ makes movies feel larger than life. Dolby Vision™ brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colors. Whichever format you choose, Sony TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience.
    • Every seat is the best seat in the house
      X-Wide Angle technology gives the Z9G vivid real-world colors from any angle while retaining more color and brightness than other LED TVs. Enjoy a great picture with incredible color from anywhere in the room.

      Scenes appear as they do in real life with X-Motion Clarity™ technology. This revolutionary, best in class technology from Sony refines action on the screen in real time with an incredible refresh rate for action that is brighter and clearer than ever before.

  • During this pandemic, this store has done an absolute amazing job of caring for the store. There are many employees available for every customer. It is also so wonderful how professional each employee is.
