Hello martin , welcome back to justanswer.

Not sure what type of external speakers or sound you had in mind but there are a couple of options here with this model.

There is an optical audio out at the back of this tv that could be used either with a soundbar or home theater system , soundbar would be the easiest in this case.

if you have nothing fancy in mind but just better sound then a good pair of computer speakers (or soundbar) connected in the headphones jack on this tv would do the trick.

I will be in standby for your questions

I was thinking about the Bose Solo.

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Nice choice then and I could not better that unless you wan to get into soundbars with wireless subs for example., this would fit perfectly with this tv .
All you will need with this is an optical cable

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

So its just a simple plug in to the optical audio port? And the Bose Solo is a good unit?
