“However, switch to a 1080p Blu-ray and the A9G is second to none. There’s no HDR to undersell here, and the Sony absolutely makes the most of any SDR signal it’s sent. Our Fargo disc looks lovely, with a pitch-perfect balance, beautiful colours, crisply defined edges and lots of detail. That detail carries through to even the darkest parts of the picture, ensuring that all of the film’s moody drama remains intact.
Drop down to 576p and, while the picture is inevitably less exceptional, it is at least as clean and controlled as that produced by an LG OLED and is also a little more vibrant. If you still watch DVDs, the A9G is overkill of the best possible kind.”
