it sounds that you are watching starfields all day long
its mostly at such scenes you will need "tremendous amount" of zones.
i would say that for 95% of the viewing even 2016 edge lit tvs are good enough to comepte with the oleds.
on bright and medium apl scenes its hard to see any difference between edge lit/fald and oled except maybe for the slight higher contrast on the oleds.
if 95% of the content on an edge lit/fald set is close enough to oled for picture quality.
how many % of the blocky noisy mess near black do you see on the oleds ?
and how many % of the details near black gets lost on the oleds?
in the end overall i still think todays lcds produces an more accurate picture with less issues than the oleds does.
the tradeoff is "slight" lower contrast.
i say slight because 2016 lcds has really bumped up the perceived contrast compared to last years models.
just to bad that the ZD9 dont have the oled like antiglare filter that the new KS models has (moth eye)
if it had blacks/colors and contrast would look even better than it does.
