I WAS WONDERING
...about the speaker system
on the E601i-A3.
What do you guys think was the audiological theory that compelled Vizio engineers to put the speakers on the back, facing away from the listener?
Wouldn't the sound be much more richer, clearer, and distinct, and the surround sound more realistic, if they were facing toward
the listener instead of bouncing off and subsequently dispersed by whatever is behind the set?
It wouldn't bother me if the base at the bottom of the frame was higher in order to accommodate the speakers, perhaps even eliminating the purchase of a sound-bar, as some are want to do?
(actually, I don't find the sound from the Vizio speakers, by themselves, all that bad, but I do use my Sony Home Theater system as my main audio source, which, when used in conjunction with the Vizio speaker system, sounds pretty good)
