You'd be surprised how many people AREN'T willing to buy anything for sound when they buy a new TV. Especially people buying stuff anywhere in the $2000+ range. The most common responses I get from customers are "Doesn't the TV already have speakers?" or "I'm not into all that theater stuff." To which I usually politely counter that a soundbar is definitely a step up from the built-in crap on most TVs without going overboard. Still, many go with the tin cans built into the TV, which I'll never understand. Some people are just not like us here at AVS. That being said, I'm not a huge fan of the speakers, but if they'e anything like the ones on the 84" they'll sound fairly decent -- which is good for those not wanting to go external. Just too bad they're not removable like they are on the 84".
