I like the idea speakers on the Sony 900. They give you the option of just using TV speakers to watch the nightly news or using your HT speakers for Blu-Ray. Honestly, surround sound is wasted on most of my TV viewing.
The Samsung is a great choice, but don't toss the Sony under a bus just because of the speakers. It seems to me, your TV choice should be based on the whether you like the video or not. I happen to like the Sony video a hair more than the Samsung. However, that was on the 65" models. The 79" Sony uses e a different panel, so it may not have as good contrast as the 65". However, it will also offer a wider viewing angle and a few other benefits of IPS panels.
Edit: I actually don't know if the Sony 79" TV has different contrast or colors. I just glanced at the big screen, saw the price and moved on. I spent a lot of time comparing the 65" models and really liked the Sony more.
