Summary: I'm not an audiophile and just use this as a small second television, so the warnings about poor sound quality didn't deter me. Wrong! I've adjusted the customized options and still end up with such poor sound that it annoys even me. I also find the "self adjusting" picture intensity is problematical. I'm still playing with the custom settings in an attempt to fix that. Strangely, in addition to the usual manual, the television comes with a CD to explain how to use it.
