The best TVs for sound deliver great picture quality and dynamic, room-filling sound to go with it. This might seem like something you’d expect from the best TVs on the market. But as the picture performance of TVs advances, sound tends to suffer. 

As TVs have gotten thinner over the years, there is less space in the display’s physical frame for adding speakers. The end result—in some cases—has been sound that’s as thin as the TV itself, which makes hearing voices particularly difficult, especially when they are mixed with music soundtracks and movie sound effects.
