Recommendations for a small room
FYI, I'm a HT newbie.. so please be gentle.
Just moved to a small apartment with hardwood floors.
I picked up a 65" TV and was planning on getting a Vizio 4051 soundbar with wireless sub/satallites.
However, I'm curious if I am making a mistake with the soundbar all-in-one deal. (And I have concerns after reading negatives about the minimum volume/constant hum on that subwoofer)
I'd rather not spend more than $300, but I could rationalize a little more if it meant significant improvement to sound quality and features.
Also, my TV stand has room on either side of the TV, and a soundbar might not actually fit on top of the TV stand.. So narrow/tall speakers would look great there.
So, all of that being said, here's what I'm looking for:
1. ARC so that I don't need a separate remote.
a. This does not limit my ability to do 5.1 sound does it? Are there any drawbacks to this or a reason why I shouldn't use this?
2. Wireless sub+satellites - Not willing to run wires to the back
3. Setting that uses all four speakers so that I can fill the room better with music.
Anyway, I'm totally willing and capable of doing this piece by piece, but that wireless requirement might make that tougher..
Thanks in advance!
