I got us a new telly few months ago (of course courtesy of hukd) and the picture is great.
The only issue I am having with it is that audio is complete rubbish, the problem seems to be that the background noise is super loud while conversations are too quiet. (if anyone has a tip on how to fix it I would be grateful, googling and trying obvious stuff got me to think it is simply a problem with poor built in speakers)
I have never owned a decent sound system and really know very little to nothing and this site is always full of people who not only know their stuff but are also mindful of the cost.
- My budget would be 500£ for both av receiver and speakers (if that makes sense),
- If it makes sense I might be persuaded to go for an av receiver and a pair of speakers now and then add more latter.
- I don't really need a playback device as I have an xbox one s for that purpose.
- Surround (more than 5.1 doesn't make sense in the room) and I don't even care that much for 5.1, 2.1 should be ok, but would be nice if I could add more speakers in the future.
Many, many thanks to everyone.
