Despite the promise of SRS WOW enhancements, the sound from the Toshiba 32C3030D Buy this for £0.00 at Dixons

is unimpressive. In general, there is lack of resolution, reduced dynamic range and muddy bass. The FOCUS, SRS 3D and TruBass, in my opinion, fails to improve the sound quality from mediocrity, which it usually does with other models. Speech seems to suffer the most with reduced mid range clarity and explosions (or any other sonic embelishments) fail to surprise or engage. At this price point, something has got to give.

I sort of liked the stable sound feature that limits high volume levels on theTV speakers, preventing the extreme changes in volume that can occur when channels are changed or a programme switches to a commercial (You must have noticed this rude `wake up call' if you watch SD broadcasts).

You get the option for digital sound and subwoofer output, which I am sure some users will find useful.
