Summary: Having studied the reviews and consumer reports extensively and comparing to other similar models, I finally decided this was the tv for me. I wish I hadn't. The sound is horrible--even turned all the way up, I can barely hear it 6 ft away.
Summary: I thought I had completely checked this out. I was wrong. This tv does not have an audio output... none, not even a headphone output.... I should have just returned it immediately. Now I have to separately route everything thru the surround sound..
Summary: Everything looked fine at first, but after watching this TV for a while the sound started echoing. It had to be turned off and on again to stop the echo which always returns after the set has been on for a while.
