Television sets have come a long way in recent years, the large bulky TV sets of yesterday have been replaced by modern thin flat screen LCD models.
One thing that generally has not improved with modern televisions is sound quality. The new fangled digital signals that bring us our programmes these days generally deliver high quality audio signals, but the thin television bodies mean that tiny speakers have to be incorporated and this can lead to thin underwhelming sound coming out. Those old bulky sets did at least have room for a reasonable size loudspeaker to be fitted.
I have a 32 inch Samsung UE32EH5000 LCD television, a great bit of kit for the price I paid, but the sound did leave something to be desired. To solve this I decided to try hooking up a set of 2.1 speakers, the sort you normally attach to a computer. A bit of hunting around and I found the “Powercool Pro Audio 150 2.1 Speakers, 20W RMS, with Wood Subwoofer” speaker set up on offer at Amazon.
Simply plugged into the televisions headphone socket the improvement i sound quality is obvious straight away, everything sounds fuller. The Powercool speakers I bought were only a cheap set, no doubt better ones would give even better results.
