The sound is soooooo good on this TV. I've got mine on a stand about 5 inches from the wall and the bass is magnificent, I can actually feel it vibrate through the floor. I forgot about the stand/wall mount setup option, I'll have to change that and see if it gets any better/worse. The surround sound effect is absolutely stunning too.
I've loved proper 5.1 for the longest time, but I've seriously thought about getting rid of the whole darned lot and just keeping the TV. I would have if it wasn't for the bluray reviews I do for thedigitalfix.com (shameless plug) for which I need at least a 5.1 system to appraise the audio side of things. (If you're an audiophile whose system cost as much as a family car then feel free to scoff all you want, you dig your kit and rightly so. But having super-duper sound with speakers up the wazoo has become less and important to me over the years, which is why this TV fits the bill so well, it's got more than enough quality to keep me happy.)
And while the merits of the LCD screen wearing in are perhaps anecdotal at best, there can be no argument about the sound, because speakers need to 'wear in' to sound their best and after a year this thing's singing like a bird.
