So, I have 2 flat screens in my house, 1 in the kitchen and 1 in the bedroom. The speakers on both, if you can call them that, are tinny and harsh sounding, not at all like the speakers in older CRT TV's. I will add I don't really care that much about great sound from a TV, as none of my TV's are hooked up to any of my stereos. My guess is I will need to add a receiver of some sort if I want to add better speakers for the audio on my 2 flat screens. If anyone can offer any guidance, I would appreciate it.
