The judges have granted the 2022 TV Shootout© award for Best 4K Home Theater TV (SDR Reference Mode) to Sony A95K.
SDR, or Standard Dynamic Range, is currently the standard format for home video and cinema displays. When testing for this Reference Mode setting, the judges prevented any outside light from entering the viewing space, essentially blacking out the room. Doing so made for a very theatrical experience, with the TVs on display shining brightly in the dark room.
After inspections of multiple video samples in this setting, the judges voted and decided that the Sony A95K is the best of today’s 4K TV selection for this specific mode. Consumers interested in creating a strong home theater experience in a dark room should be very interested in the Sony A95K.
See the Dealerscope homepage for more TV Shootout news and award updates. Tomorrow, the judges will focus on this year’s 8K competition.
Thanks to the TV Shootout’s sponsors, Sony, LG, IFA, Austere and Metra AV!
