Integrated Speakers, nah!

At just 10 watts apiece, the meter tall side-mounting speakers feature a small woofer at rear which gives them a little bit of Bass to liven up the sound.

The sound quality of the two speakers is good, but not a replacement for a decent home theatre audio set up. Each of the speakers are connected to the LTM405W with really thin speaker wire that is not more than about one meter long.

The speakers are mounted directly to the frame of the LCD TV with a few metal brackets and screws. This ensures wall mounting really does leave the table top absolutely free from any other objects. The speakers arrived in a separate box, along with stands so there is also the option of having the speakers free standing.

There are no integrated speakers within the LCD television panel itself.

The Samsung LTM405W's on screen menu system allows keen users to set sound options control options including a few presets like; music, speech, movie, standard and even your own custom settings. The speakers are good for what they are, and I don't think the sound is bad by any means - but it is certainly not as sweet as you would hear from a full set of decent stereo speakers. The beauty of them really is for environments where the plasma display hangs on a wall, or no stereo equipment is present.

Audiophiles will undoubtedly want to bypass these satellite speakers and pump the audio directly from a separate DVD player, or HDTV tuner to the amp. Incidently, there are four audio inputs round back, but the only outputs are the wire connectors for the side-mounting speakers themselves.
