You get what you pay for

I looked for something with really good, involving sound that didn't fill the room with speakers or just amplified explosions and I found it.
A really good product which is more subtle, rather than in your face, but still impressive. I have it sitting on a low cabinet with the TV mounted on top of it. I bought it because the sound from mewly acquired Sony KDL 42W805 is not very good. Great to look at, but to listen... Let's not go there! Run it in and take some trouble getting the right setting. You can choose from 3 positioning modes to optimise sound - in a cabinet,, on a cabinet with TV on it or on a cabinet with the TV wall mounted. I also prefer the Stereo option to the Surround option. You still get a good soundstage, but bigger rooms may benefit from the surround setting. Having said it was subtle, it can still get up and slap you in the face for action movies etc. Music fares very well having listened to some great performances on Sky Arts including Jeff Beck and Gary Moore with the volume wound up. No lack of sync or anything either. Finally, don't be afraid to buy an Amazon warehouse deal version to save yourself some money.
