Hi All,

I hope I'm not about to ask a dumb question here...

My upstairs TV/movie/music setup is a work in progress. I'm dealing with a wife who does not want obtrusive speakers but wants to be able to stream music from around the house (primarily iTunes).

I'd like to reuse some existing components, including an older Sony DTR receiver.

Ideally, I would like to have a wireless music streamer hooked up to the receiver; the receiver then connecting to a compact/minimally obtrusive soundbar (2.1 or 5.1 is fine by me) that is equally good with music and movies.

The likely choice are the ZVOX compact speaker systems. However, none of these have optical input! What gives? Am I just being particular here? Should I suffice for an optical-to-mini adapter?

I have read all of the positive comments on the Vizio sound bars but they appear to be awfully deep for my tastes. I will have the sound bar below an older Samung DLP with about 6 inches of depth and 5 inches of height to work with. Ideally, I would have the soundbar in a 18" wide by 11" tall shelf in our media cabinet.

I'd really love a good, compact "mini soundbar". Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'd appreciate it...thanks.
