Which LCD TV has the best sound quality?
I am looking to buy a 46 inch LCD TV for my family room. I don't want to add external speakers for surround sound and deal with a mess of wires etc. Which TV do you all think has the best sound quality? I checked out the LG LH90 and SONY XBR9 and they both were quite disappointing!

The one that is hooked to an external sound system.
Flat panel sound is generally not satisfactory for anything more complex than dialog. Most don't even work well as center channels.
Most modern televisions offer volume controlled RCA outputs so using a simple sub-sat computer speaker system is often a welcome relief from the flat sound.
Personally, I would be far more concerned with picture quality when choosing a new HDTV. Of course, that rules out LCD for the most part. You can get some decent wireless surround sound systems.
Wrong reason to buy a hdtv, if you are looking for GREAT sound.
You can add a sub. and soundbar that is simple fix. I have it in a smaller room and works great.

Honestly MOST people don't want tvs with audio. They use immersive surround sound systems. MY whole audio system was less expensive than a Bose 123 and sounds much better too.
