These aren't intended as hi-fidelity, hi-definition home theater tuners. On a typical old TV they work really well.
If people are so worried about using it to feed a home theater with surround sound they should step up and buy a proper tuner. I have seen full HD tuners with component or HDMI video and optical audio for under $100.
In this day and time, electronics being as advanced as they are, decent audio should be a given, even for a $60.00 tuner.
I have a 14" RCA stereo televison, purchased from Wal-Mart two years ago for $85.00, with better audio performance than the Zenith converter.
If LG had a problem designing decent audio into the converter, then they should have released the product with monaural sound only.
