great picture, terrible sound!

it has a great picture and was easy to set up and pulls in antennae channels well, but the sound is terrible. we bought a Sanyo sound bar at Walmart for $50 which makes the TV worth listening to. we also got it on sale, so the additional cost for the sound bar still made it worth while.
