The difference between dynamic and static contrast ratio is a result of the way they're measured. Dynamic ratios involve the difference between the darkest black and whitest white on different frames, where static is on the same frame. Sharp produces a higher dynamic ratio through the use of a backlight that changes depending on the overall brightness of the picture.
Speakers are located inside the thin speaker strip on the bottom of the set. For most people which have a television of this caliber and use a separate speaker system, the speaker strip is detachable leaving only the display part of the television.
