Well there are sound bars and then there are sound bars.You have the cheezy plastic and cardboard HTIB type, and, then you have the real speakers............
Leon, Atlantic Technology and Paradigm all come to mind (I'm sure there are others) when discussing the sound bar as a single long narrow wall mountable enclosure housing LCR speakers, with dedicated inputs for connection to outboard amplification and processing. Never installed one but have been contemplating the possibility for my great room with a bad layout due to fireplace and window placement.
Saw a really impressive install Leon did at the Univ of Michigan. Impressive because it was very inconspicuous but delivered.
I get the feeling the Leon and Triad lines are cut from similar cloth in terms of level of craftsmanship and customization offered.
