- TV Sound – 2x10W OK?
Time for the CRT to go. Currently use my old ‘stereo’ to beef up the tinny speakers on the TV, but its a big old beast and combined with the TV is taking up too much space so is also ‘off’
Buying a 2nd Hand TV so cannot be too fussy. Currently looking at a 5 year old Sony and the biggest negative seems to be 2x10W sound which I have seen (ref another set) described as a ‘joke’
Will it be really poor? Will I need to spend more money on boosting the sound? If so what kind of budget options are there bearing in mind it hurts to pay £180 for a TV (that’s £120 more than I have ever paid for a TV in my life)

I found you get used to it pretty quickly (as long as the speakers are fairly balanced and don’t rattle at even moderate volume), when I splashed out a few years ago on a new TV it was about 6 months before I got some speakers. There is a noticeable difference though with half-decent speakers (I just use a soundbar so very far from an audiophile) so worth getting some eventually if you watch films a lot – can’t see it’s really worth it for sport/daytime TV/soaps sort of stuff.Posted 6 years ago
Not really sure what’s worth having at your budget though, best off looking for second-hand stuff and hoping it’s still working…
