Yeah, this opens another can of worms.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with built in TV speakers. They serve their purpose same like using CVS earphones vs let’s say B&O.
Not everyone requires absolutely best and fullest sound and quite frankly most of us can’t take advantage of one.
Especially those living in bigger cities with paper thin walls can’t appreciate 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound without somebody calling the police when sound is too loud.
I didn’t invest into crazy sound setup myself, started small with a Sonos soundbar (which it’s great “for me” on its own) and added additional speakers for a 5.1 channel audio.
I can’t even appreciate them with my current apartment room sandwiched between two others and anything over 10-15% of sound generates either knocking or “shut the fu.... music” though the wall
At times I revert to good pair of spatial headphones and see that trend more popular with “personal” viewing or listening experience using VR headsets.
So let’s stop criticizing built in speakers, cheap-o EarPods, soundbars or dedicated HTS and enjoy what we have :-)
In the end, don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to be arrogant or ignorant. We all invest into what works for us and this forum is all about it - choices. Not only the high end ones!
