The sound on most TVs is just not up to scratch. Sure, it'll do the job, and you'll be able to hear what's going on, but it's nowhere near as good as it could be. That's where home theater components can make a real difference. Throw a few speakers into the mix - a subwoofer here, a couple of floorstanding speakers there, some surround sound gizmos and perhaps a soundbar, add a receiver to tie them all together - and you'll be amazed at how good your sound suddenly becomes.
