I'm delving into a new plasma tv setup & been on the hunt for either using the plasma (panny 58v10 is my hope) sound or maybe a soundbar.
Some friend's just bought a bose CineMate Series II speaker system along with a 55" sammy lcd-led 6000 panel. To me, I think they have good sound & the bose seems to give it a surround sound "effect"; however, I know just being on the avsforum boards for a couple of weeks researching, the bose name seems to be not highly regarded.
Which leads me to what my main intention is:
is there a 2 speaker, 2.1 speaker system or sound bar system that will give some surround sound effect??
I've been looking seriously at the Vizio soundbar with wireless sub ( that is a great affordable setup for me - it appears / without hearing it though ). And over on the Aperion section, they are releasing a new soundbar in '10/this year ... and I like my older Aperion speakers that I have so I'm comfortable with that brand.
Money is an object - I don't care to spend a whole lot but I could wait on this and buy later if it makes sense. ie, I don't really want to spend $499-$599 like what a bose cinemate system costs... the $200-$300 for the Vizio sound bar seems reasonable to me.
