HDTV’s have become the norm for most U.S. households. And according to research done by the Leichtman Research Group, 75% of U.S. homes have at least one HDTV.
The majority of these televisions are likely to be of the flat panel variety. This design leaves very little space for audio speakers that are able to produce full-bodied high-quality sound. In fact, most flat-panel HDTVs produce mediocre or poor sound quality.
However, you do not have to live with this inferior sound reproduction. Two options for better sound include soundbars and pre-matched surround sound systems, also known as Home Theaters in a Box (HTiB).
