The Sony Plasma that this 65/900 replaced had a built in subwoofer that was pretty darn good. That, up to the 900 was the best sounding TV I owned. When I had previous XBR's they were surrounded by more grile covers than you could imagine, but I still used the TV speakers for general viewing, Morning background TV, afternoon talkers, local and national news etc.
I'd then turn on the amps for evening drama or DVR, VOD viewing.
Same things now, but the 65/900 speakers sound better than anything before.
I do have a pair of Paradigm's I have tucked in for surround, so in essence, I do end up firing up an amp for serious programs.
Who needs Wendy Williams in 7.1?
