The sound of the LENCO TFT-1038

For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two loudspeakers with 5 W at output.
The sound quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.

Our conclusion on the LENCO TFT-1038
The finish shows some small deficiencies (visible cables and visible screws), but the technology is mastered and the image rendering is at the expected level.
What more can we ask of a product in this range?
Negative point on this TFT-1038 is the absence of smart tv. It’s surprising in this day and age. But since we’re in a low-end product, why not.
The HD resolution has been chosen on this TV. A sufficient choice and well adapted to everyday use. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. By then Ultra 8k prices will have dropped.
From this new LENCO we can retain 3 positive points:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
