A:AnswerHi burntrubber, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, no. Currently, the BRAVIA Acoustic Center sync mode of the HT-A9 is only compatible with 2021 BRAVIA TV models such as the Z9J series, A90J series, A80J, and X95J series.
However, you can still connect your A9G TV via HDMI ARC/eARC connection to output the sound from your TV to the HT-A9. Hope this helps! -Sam
A:AnswerThe Sony HTA9 should be available on 09/20/21. Of course, there is a possibility that it could be delayed until the end of September or beginning of October 2021. Just be sure to keep checking back.
A:AnswerHi RacerChris, Thank you for your inquiry. For this, we recommend not to place the speakers in a shelf or right below the ceiling so as not to block the sound output from the top of the speakers. Also, do not place metal objects near the speaker system. Wireless functions may become unstable.
For more information on how to properly install the HTA9, please check our help guide link: https://helpguide.sony.net/ht/a9/v1/en/contents/TP1000029207.html
I hope this helps.
