Are there TVs available where a significant proportion of the cost is not the sound capability?

A lot of manufacturers seem to be emphasising the sound capabilities of their TVs e.g. Sony and using actuators to vibrate the screen. This implies that a significant part of the cost of the TV is the sound capabilities.
Given that I have a surround sound system, the sound capabilities of the TV are of no interest to me. Therefore can anyone recommend a TV where the picture is as good as other TVs in a higher price bracket - because money has been saved by not including expensive sound capabilities? e.g. is there a £1500 TV out there with a picture that is as good as the class leaders in the £2000 price range but doesn't include £500 worth of sound-producing technology?
Thanks

Which size TV are you looking for?

Usually, if you check the specs, the difference between the flagship model and the model below it (or even a mid range model) is mainly audio with exactly the same panel. Choose your TV carefully accordingly.

I am trying to find 65-inches for you and found this deal:


You could try price matching with John Lewis.

You would need to fill it the price match at John Lewis online the never knowingly undersold bit. And link exactly to that price I found on the Panasonic.
