Introduction

We took a look at the Mitsubishi LT-46148 46-inch LCD back in August and felt that it was a good TV with some potential for improvement. Mitsubishi jumped back at us with the new LT-46149 and asked us to review it. While the features, video section and menus are nearly identical, the 149 series offers a brand new sound projector to deliver Dolby Digital 5.1 surround from just a bottom-mounted sound bar. We dialed in this television and it actually did a pretty bang-up job of sending surround sound to our ears - all from a single speaker.
