      "Also, the AF9 has a centre speaker mode that allows the Acoustic Surface Audio+ to be used as the centre speaker of a home theatre system."

      I am no cheerleader...
      No 55 lcd...so the question is 55af9 or a 65zf9 plus a divorce !!!! Hmmmmm
      To be honest, I love both so far...

      Waiting for proper spec...looking promising even if no 55 in lcd is very annoying...have no energy to wait for xf93 in q1 2019...no way.

      If you waited this long maybe would be smart to wait little longer and buy 2019 model with hdmi 2.1 wich will be way more future proof....

      I imagine these TVs will be decent, but this article reads like pure marketing. Did you write it, Phil, or was the text provided for you?

      Some updates regarding the ZF9.

      It will have a full 21 point greyscale and 6 colour 3 axis CMS
      All HDMI ports will be full bandwidth.
      Every ZF9 set will be factory calibrated for uniformity.
      Viewing angles are like IPS but contrast is like VA. Much wider than usual.

      Yes, I just noticed this: “Here are the press announcements from Sony in full...”

      I’m not sure why I missed that the first time.

      The ZD9 didn't come in a 55" so I never expected the ZF9 would either buddy. No portables in that range...:laugh: Your source was definitely telling porkys..

      Guess it's a 55 AF9 then...:p
