Sony A90J OLED Owners and Discussion Thread

Orders in and some owners expecting delivery in the next few days.

The A90J has a new XR OLED Contrast Pro feature which has a number of technologies implemented to assist with improved image quality. First of all, is a Laminate aluminium sheet which is applied to the panel for heat radiation. This is then complemented with temperature distribution helping to cool the panel and produce higher peak brightness thanks to the XR processing and WRGB elements emitted fully.


Sony A90J Oled

MASTER Series A90J (83”, 65” and 55” models) OLED TV features:​
  • Cognitive Processor XR understands how humans see and hear, providing a revolutionary experience that completely immerses viewers in their favourite content
  • XR OLED Contrast adjusts brightness for higher peaks in glare and deeper blacks in shadow while XR Triluminos Pro enables a wider palette to reproduce each colour with the subtle differences seen in the real world
  • XR Motion Clarity technology controls moving images precisely to minimise blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high-speed scenes
  • BRAVIA CORE™: In collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE), BRAVIA CORE™ is where entertainment meets technology and was developed to add value and showcase unique Sony experiences.

I want to order the 83 inch (price permitting, may end up with 65 inch), but seeing as the G1 77 evo is reported to be $4300, I don’t know what to do.

I will end up with the Sony I know it.

G1 77 £5499 here, a bit more than usa but still 1.5k less than the a90j...
BUT.. beautiful sony processing and a slightly larger screen :love:
I think it's tomorrow some embargo is up and they will be some g1 reviews kicking about... (your usual tech youtube reviews)

Hmmm, 65A90J or 77AG9?
It’s a tough one, but being the tight git I’ve gotten to be, it’ll likely be the 65E6 for another year :D
Hoping you all get a good one and looking forward to the reviews :smashin:
Size wins for me

We may see the G1 go for £4999 here.
I think we shouldn't clog up this thread any more with price talk of LG etc. We should keep it over on the 2021 oled thread :blush: :D:blush:🥊
Duly noted.
Any firm delivery dates yet from you guinea pigs?
I need your feed back as im quite torn still about which way to go.
77" A80j
65" A90j plus a pedestal stand
75" z9j - if its not priced too silly

These are real world problems and causing me STRESS :thumbsdow

I still don't think its as bad as one first thinks it is.
Maybe i didn't explain my argument very well
Base cost in UK with VAT removed is £4582
Base cost in the US is $4300

You cant look at the exchange rate as a blame against the manufacturer under the rip off britain guise.
The manufacturer generally dont give a stuff about the $ to £ exchange as it has no effect on them What they are much more interested in is the repatriation of the sales back to the currency where they are based. So LG may be much more interested in converting their dollar sales back to Korean currency, Sony back to the Japanese Yen etc
Similarly their Uk sales in pounds need to be repatriated back to Japan, Korea or wherever they have "based" themselves for corporate taxation arrangements.
Its this repatriation currency exchange that affects the pricing as much as the mantra "how much can we get away with on our pricing in this market"

Yes agreed you can go to a low sales tax state, buy it (and benefit from the relatively good exchange rate). Ship it back and then pay UK import duty on your purchase and you might be a few quid better off but not by much.

I still don't see it. It would mean pre tax (removing all gov tax, leaving only what the manufacture is charging), the exchange rate comparing the US to UK would be 0.93 dollars to the pound making the dollar stronger than the pound? That just isnt right, variance between currencies is not that much.

A90J 65 inch =
UK £2915.83 pre tax.
US $4000 pre tax

That works out about 1.37 rate, that is correct and in line with global exchange rates.

Anyway I digress.

When is the 83 inch A90J due to launch?

My 5 year warranty is up on the 65E6
Time to replace and I'm thinking of this one as well
Considering this mainly because everyone is crowding around it
Used to be a Sony fan in the past so hope they've upped their game
Will need to refresh my knowledge of current TVs and tech first.
Been out the game a bit in recent years

I would start here which gives a great summary of the tv after a calibration.

Think we've got to read between the lines "still room for improvement" end of the day, white point is calibrated at the factory, the only reason to calibrate this TV is for peace of mind, knowing the DE's are at their lowest. A90J will absolutely not need a calibration, VE make a living on calibrating in-store, hence why they are so coy on the subject vs A90J :rotfl:
