Sony has the very first allocation/shipment of the new 2020 Z9K 8K Master Series MiniLED HD TVs picked and palletized for delivery to our store. If all goes as scheduled we'll receive the shipment this Thursday or no later than Friday.

I spent a lot of time with the Z9K at Sony's US HQ and spoke with the engineers and product managers about the Z9K so I have some good knowledge on this new TV.

I scheduled a YouTube video of the unboxing, set-up and 1st impressions for this Saturday, but I'll get back here sooner with some pictures when the Z9K delivery arrives. I'll position the Z9K next to the X95K so we can compare them side-by-side with the same test patterns and content.

Seeing HDR content without the need to tone map gives you the full dynamic tonal range and full color volume to the screen and brings out all of the details in the highest peak luminance that I have never seen before on any TV. The images look real to life.

So the value and benefits of a premium 8K TV is not because of the higher resolution, but it is a very welcome side effect of having 400% more pixels that deliver much higher peak luminance and better color saturation and color volume. The naturally higher contrast ratio and full color volume of Sony's Z9K makes the images look sharper and more detailed.

Here's a nice Z9K YouTube video from Brian's Tech Therapy channel that Brian and Shane from SpareChange shot in our new Broadcast Studio at Value Electronics.


Yeah, I watched the video earlier today on You Tube. When will that new Broadcast Studio be completed?
