questionscan anyone recommend an inexpensive sound bar?


No personal experience, but based on the reviews, this one is decent at $100.

If you're on a bigger budget, have the space, and don't mind having to hookup some components, then go separate with some bookshelf speakers and a $19 Lepai amp. $50 total using these + cables will sound much much better than the TV's built-in speakers already.


I have the Vizio one that every online outlet has for $60 refurbished and let me say it is way better than my LCD's speakers, but it is very picky. The part that holds the optical connector in broke within 2 months (more of my kids fault though) and the remote is a complete disaster, but if you don't use the remote and don't have destructive kids it works fine.
