Summary: I purchased 2 of these tvs for Christmas. I was very dissapointed. The picture was good but the sound was very bad. The sound worbled at a low and medium range and you could not get a loud volumn range at all. It was very difficult to understand what was being said.
Summary: Spent considerable time redesigning/rebuilding bookcase to accommodate our new upsize/upscale TV. Nice. Except that even with the sound turned up full we are left straining to hear. Incredible to me that a major brand could be so slipshod with so important a part of their product.
