Question

How is the sound quality?

My understanding is that the buit-in speakers are at the bottom of the TV set, facing downward. Is that true?

Is this working for customers? Is the sound bar required for acceptable sound quality?

Yes, the speakers are downward facing on this TV. The sound is very good but, for an awesome experience a sound bar is always a great investment but not needed.
