I am looking for a 60"-70" TV for my family room. I do not plan on installing a surround sound. I have a 40" sony in my living room that provides acceptable sound by my standards. Which models would you guys suggest have the best sound from the built in speakers.

Thanks

Joshua

For a largish room--none. That being said, if you can afford a 60-70 inch set you can easily afford a decent sounding sound bar solution that will be a vast improvement over the set's internal speakers, won't involve stringing wires all over the room, and will be totally transparent in operation.

The issue I'm having is I have about "40 above the mantle for the TV. Maybe there is a small 2 speaker system that I can put on either side, if I do not like the way the TV sounds.

Sharp makes a couple of soundbars (HT-SL70, HT-SL75) with very slim 26mm bar and separate powered subwoofer. The long thin bar actually splits in the middle and the two sections can be wall-mounted vertically on either side of the tv.

Alternatively a 2.1 system comprised of a fairly entry level HDMI AV receiver, two compact speakers hung on either side of the tv, and a powered sub could meet your needs. This would also mean you could plug all your source devices into the AV receiver and only have one HDMI cable going up to the tv.
