I'm looking to get a decent soundbar for a medium sized bedroom. I have the following components:
TV - LG 32LE5400
AcerAspireRevo With XBMC
All are hooked up to the TV and I use the TV to switch inputs and it works great. The only problem with the TV is that it's speakers are terrible, much worse than the Samsung 26" TV that I had before the LG.
So in looking around, I have pretty much decided on the Boston Acoustics TVeeM20B sound bar with wireless sub-woofer. I picked this because the TV has optical out that can feed directly to the sound bar, I can use my existing directTV remote to control the volume (since it learns your existing remote), the TV has the ability to turn off it's internal speakers, and because it has a wireless sub-woofer I can put anywhere in the room.
It seems like a good fit, and the prices on it are dropping on many of the sites like Amazon, so I can get a pretty good deal on it.
My question is, will I be happy with it. I don't see people talking much about it in the forums and wonder what owners of it think. The amazon reviews are pretty good. Will it work okay with the optical out of the TV (using the TV as my main "switcher")? Does it learn remotes well? Any gotchas I haven't considered?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
