Samsung UN46ES6500F 3D LED LCD HDTV Review$1,729.00
- Audio Quality
The Samsung UN46ES6500 comes equipped with two speakers that are 10W each for a total output of 20W. There are additional options for surround sound (called SRS TruSurround HD) and for voice enhancement (called SRS TruDialog).
The sound quality is just average with this TV. Since there is no subwoofer built in, low-end sounds take a hit and are noticeably dull. Samsung attempts to rectify this with the SRS TruSurround HD setting. When toggled on, there is a slight bass boost. The other sound option available is called SRS TruDialog, which attempts to make dialog and voice more noticeable without lowering the other sounds. Similar to SRS TruSurround HD, SRS TruDialog simply boosts the mid-range frequencies which gives speech a slight volume boost. If you require more frequency boosting, there is an equalizer option that lets you boost or lower frequencies in the 100Hz, 300Hz, 1kHz, 3kHz and 10kHz ranges.
The best sound that we managed to produce from the Samsung UN46ES6500 was with the movie setting turned on. Ambient noises that were not present with the standard setting were clear and audible with the movie setting. We recommend turning this on for added depth.
