This - especially if you buy a Sharp ROKU Smart TV. These TVs are designed so that the TV speaker points down thus sending the sound into the TV stand / floor instead of forward to the audience. Sometimes even maxing the volume doesn't help to decipher what is being said on the TV. I am convinced that this poor design is intentional so that ROKU can upsell you on their proprietary wireless speakers (which run about $200).  I ended up buying the ROKU wireless speakers since I wasn't certain about soundbar compatability with other manufacturers and they have been a good purchase. I just think the design issue is kinda shady.
