In a year that’s already thrown up an almost unfair amount of outstanding TVs, the Sony 75X9405C makes a strong claim to being the best yet. Its colours are stunning, its handling of native 4K and, with a little care, upscaled HD content is exquisite. Its combination of mostly first-class video processing, large screen size, extreme contrast and incredibly potent audio add up to a remarkably cinematic performance.However, Sony's set still feels a bit like a work in progress at the time of writing thanks to its lack of YouView support and HDR playback – both due to be added via firmware updates at some point. Also we remain unconvinced about the usefulness of the Android TV smart system. But if simple picture and sound quality are what matter to you most, then the 75X9405C is nothing short of glorious.
