Like most flat screens (especially budget models) it's audio output levels are pretty sad. In fact this might have the worst speakers I've ever heard on a TV, my laptop puts it to shame.
Now I was planning to get her some kind of permanent solution for this for Christmas but I cannot decide which road to take.
1)Soundbar: Sleek, simple, and made for this very purpose.
2)2.1 Speaker set: More affordable, adaptable for other uses if need be, much better sound quality/$
Basically that's what I've gathered from what little I've looked into it, I'm basically looking for either specific product recommendations or general advice on what I should get??
Budget is $100 or less, doesn't have to be mind blowing quality and if I could get something under $50, I'd get two and buy one for her family since watching movies at her house on their flatscreen is pretty lousy too (but still much better than her TV)
