Summary: I love, love love this tv. The sound is great because the speakers are in the front and project out from the tv. I can hear tv again after having a Samsung that the speakers were in the bottom and went down into the cabinet. I wish this style with front speakers was available in larger models also. It sure beats having to buy an additional sound bar just to hear the tv. Many times the Samsung was at 100% volume and I still couldn't hear soft sounds.
