Recently we bought a cheap Hidef TV Set. The picture is excellent but the sound sub standard. This I am told is common. Connecting an expensive so called ‘sound bar’ can fix this, but we found a $29 pair of speakers did the trick quite well. We used a logitech Z 150 set from JB HiFi
Until I read your post Ray ,I hadn’t heard of a Hidef TV ,that was a very clever move on your part ,the speakers. Our TV ,given by a friend who had 3 TV’s when leaving town, is ok but the picture also sound ,for ? reason tends too breakup ABC TV Sundays, when Songs of Praise is being shown.
