BUILT-IN SPEAKER PERFORMANCE( TEST SUMMARY REPORT)

Built-in Speakers: Decent sound for casual TV watching, but lacks depth and punch for movies, music, or gaming.
Voice Clarity: Dialogues are clear and natural, but might lack some crispness at higher volumes.
Distortion: Minimal distortion at moderate volumes, increases slightly at higher volumes.
Frequency Response: Lacks deep bass and high treble extension, resulting in a somewhat narrow soundscape.
Bass: Limited bass presence, not suitable for music or bass-heavy content.
Soundstage: Sound comes primarily from the TV itself, lacks expansive or immersive feel.
Immersion: Can create a decent sense of immersion for casual content, but not comparable to a good soundbar or home theater system.
Dolby Atmos Support: Supports Dolby Atmos passthrough via eARC, but limited by built-in speakers' capabilities.
Audio Passthrough: Supports a wide range of audio formats via eARC, including Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, DTS:X, and DTS-HD Master Audio.
