Question: In search of a Windows laptop with sound quality of a Mac

Yes, I know I can run Windows on my Mac, but I'd rather just get a secondary laptop with windows for when I need it. Question: is there a PC laptop with the build quality of my MacBook Pro that has sound/speaker quality the MacBook has? The reason I am a loyal Mac user is that Apple doesn't make junk and the PC world is full of "so-called" premium laptops that are all glitz and no build quality. I recently purchased a Dell XPS 9360 and was sorely disappointed with not only it's sound/speaker quality, but it's build quality overall. I don't care how pretty, thin or light a pc laptop is. I just want something that can measure up to MacBook Pro's sound/speaker quality. Thanks for any suggestions.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016, 2 TBT3), macOS Sierra (10.12.1)

Thanks. I have listened to a couple of HPs. The Pavillion was good and Elite was not as good. I haven't yet heard their premium laptop the Spectre. All of the PC's have audio software improvements, but the hardware/speakers are no where near the quality of a MacBook. I can't understand why no PC laptop maker hasn't approached Mac Book quality. All of the reviews I read say "you can't get quality sound from a laptop" and that may be, but I get high-quality sound from my MacBook for speech and music.
