speaker system is rated at 20W RMS like the C series, except that it's in a much bigger enclosure this time. I know it's totally subjective, but the audio sounds a lot bigger this time and certainly more expansive.

will do for your usual programming. With SRS WOW enhancements and 3-range basic equalizer adjustments, you've got some room to mould the sound into something you will like. For bass nuts, you get to play with TruBass and bass level control to pump a little more juice out of the low end. Or you could try to connect an external bass unit to the subwoofer output that comes with the TV.

I liked the stable sound feature that limits high volume levels on the TV speakers, preventing the extreme changes in volume that can occur when channels are changed or a programme switches to a commercial.
