We don't know how even one person stated the sound was OK on this television. It's absolutely horrible and even with the options it has to change the bass and treble in order to balance it, it's STILL horrible. There is no way to correct it. It has a preset "soft" setting, another preset "Dynamic" setting, and another one called "User" that the owner can adjust and set, but again, no matter which end of the sound spectrum you set for the bass and the treble (the two factors it allows the user to change), it still sounds tinny, hollow, harsh. The picture is nice and there is an "Aspect" button on the remote to change the ratio of the picture depending on the program you're watching on T.V. or if you're watching DVDs you can alter the picture ratio too (older DVDs vs. newer DVDs need to be adjusted picture-wise), but there is no way to enter multi-digital stations either. We still use a t.v. antenna and don't subscribe to cable or satellite, but since T.V. went from analog to digital there are more stations available... sort of "sub-stations" of the old two-digit analog. That is, we can punch in "12" for a local station, but can't punch in "12-2" for the second station at that number. We can only use the up arrow or down arrow after entering the initial two-digit station. We know the technology is out there, OUR OLD T.V. from 10 YEARS AGO allows us to punch in digital stations like 12-2 or 9-3, but not this one. So, we have to return it. We won't be able to tolerate the lousy sound or the inability to get to the station we want easily, even though we paid less than $200 for it (including tax and disposal fee). Evidently it's still true that "you get what you pay for" but these days you really have to pay even to get features from T.V.s from 10 YEARS AGO! We're VERY disappointed in RCA since we were replacing an older RCA with this one and thought it would be BETTER quality not WORSE!
