Sony KDL-46EX700 LED LCD HDTV Review
By all accounts, the Sony KDL-46E700 is one of the better HDTVs we’ve reviewed.
The Sony KDL-46EX700's built-in speakers aren't great, but then again, most TVs don't have great audio quality. Voices were clear enough, but overall the sound was a bit tinny and muffled.
If you feel like fiddling around with your audio, there's an equalizer, surround sound, and sound enhancer you can toggle; none of these features seem to have much of an effect on the sound, strangely enough.
The KDL-46EX700 features a PlayStation 3-like design. Pressing the menu button will bring up a horizontal string of icons that expand vertically when highlighted. The menu is attractive, intuitive, and not that dissimilar from any other Sony menu system.
The KDL-46EX700's manual is average overall. It has a table of contents and a very sparse index, both of which should help navigation to a certain extent. There's tabs on the edges of the pages to aid in browsing to a particular section. The font in the book is a good size but coud be slightly bigger. The pictures are a bit on the small side and tend to be busy with arrows, but the descriptions are good enough.
