I haven't noticed any difference when going to different channels. Its nice because the volume stays the same doesn't get louder. I bought a Vizio soundbar to go along with the tv. Its an added bonus to the all ready great sound.

Thank you for inquiring about our product.

This TV offers SRS StudioSound HD™ which delivers immersive surround sound, deep bass, clear dialog and level volume. It is not going to stay the same volume all the time but this helps to level it out.
