Yes, most televisions have terrible audio quality, which is why the stereo and soundbar was invented. Fortunately, Mitsubishi is a step ahead with the LT-249 series that includes a soundbar at the bottom of the display.
You would think that every TV would have a soundbar, but I suppose the display industry doesn’t really have much pull in the audio industry. The LT-249 series has some other pluses too, such as interactive Vudu and Pandora features. All in all, lets hope Mitsubishi will set a standard for TVs next year.
