A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
The equipment consists of  several speakers for a sound power of 10 W.

In conclusion, the sound of this TV will put you at the very heart of your movies. Immersive and impressive.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.
