Yeah, it's horrible how bad the sound on the original ipad was. I dunno about the ipad 3 though.

What? Not sure if serious. My A500 has surprisingly good sound just from the built in speakers, and sounds darn good when run through my AVR.

Samsung Galaxy Tabs have Wolfson WM1811AEs, which will rival some $100+ headphone amplifiers.

You're saying if I want to put on a TV show to watch while I cook in the kitchen I should wear headphones?
For me good speakers are very important that's why I bought a Iconia A510. The dual speakers facing down and as far apart as it can really go work fantastically. I never understood the rear facing speakers. The Note 10.1 which will be my new tablet has speakers facing forwards much like the Archos 70 tablet I use now for most of my streaming.
Speakers are important.
