Improving the audio experience

The Creative A120 I just bought for half the price.

Do you also put additional speakers to your television just to improve the overall audio experience when watching from it? In most LCD/LED TVs today, there is already an audio setting for different watching experience. There's the Sport, News, Movie, Music, etc. There is also additional setting for the woofer but the built in speakers isn't enough to give out that deep bass. So I just bought a 2.1 speaker on sale and I'm planning to install it in our TV to have a better audio experience since we're watching movies more often than of the local channels. It just feels better for us when hearing the sound effects clearer as well as the movie soundtracks when they start playing because we love listening to music too. So are you satisfied with the TV's built in speakers?

When we bought our current HD TV to replace the previous LED TV, we were advised not to use the TV's built-in speakers because the vibration caused by the speakers (especially when you're used to high volume) is the reason the screen gets easily damaged. Therefore, I attached our TV's audio to my computer's 5.1 Altec Lansing speaker system's auxiliary input.

Is it a good marketing strategy po? Hehe! Samsung's TV built-in speakers are quite okay even without those extra speakers.

@wiLLmaH Our previous TV was a Samsung LED TV and after about 4 years, lines started coming out of the screen and a friend also gave me the same reason.

@aeisle Yes, it's not a marketing strategy because the appliance store personnel knew I had Altec Lansing speakers. I'm sure you know better than me because you're a technical person but that's what my friend (who owns a computer store and shop and was a Dean of Computer Sciences and also an IT professional) said. Our listening pleasure has greatly improved with the current set-up though it's sometimes cumbersome to be using two remote controls (one for the TV and the other for the Altec Lansing) aside from activating the AVR from where my Altec Lansing is connected to.

When I am still staying in my parents' house, I do have TV and home theater. Now that I am married, I am not fond of TV shoes now. We have a TV but we only switched it on, I think for past years, not more than 20 times? haha!

We also have a home theater back in my parents. Now we are just starting to have one on our own little by little starting with the TV and now the speakers just recently. So what makes you busy now if it has nothing to with the TV?

No not really satisfied with tv speakers. I actually need to have at least a booper so I could enjoy my movies. Good bass and treble. My room is sound proof anyway, and I want my movies very loud so I can have that theater ambiance hahahahha

Wow! That's awesome! How did you sound proof your room? It is from paint or did you really have sound proofings materials installed in the walls? I think you should also have surround speaker but you need to have a compatible movie that can produce that effect too. Now that would be real theater experience! and don't forget to turn off the lights.

I bet it will sound much better. I am very satisfied with the sound of my tv and since I don't watch it so often I won't invest in good speakers.

Yes the speakers are already good. Maybe we just want that theatrical feel at home when watching movies since we don't go to movie houses that often. The speakers were not really a significant investment from our part because it only costs less than a week's worth of daily Starbucks. . Unless maybe if you will get from the top brands of speakers.

The speaker in my little TV is not good. But I don't watch TV for an audio experience. I have a dedicated vintage stereo that is very good. Right now I am using vintage Acoustic Research AR-3a speakers and a conrad-johnson amplifier with an NAD preamplifier in my audio system.

I only use the build in speaker. Loud sound of music is not really my favourite. I feel uneasy being in loud places.

I'm thinking of buying speakers myself, but they are expensive that's for sure.

I prefer less volume on watching tv or even playing music. I don't appreciate to connect with external speakers. I feel only irritated and annoyed with the high volume.
