Hooking it up to a 54G20 Plasma Tv.

Limited space, it will be in a Bedroom, not sure I want to go with a HTIB because of all the speakers and wires.

Also hooking up a DMP-BD80K Blu-Ray Player.

Question is what would give me best sound ?

I assume if I go the ZVOX route the Blu Ray player will be hooked to the HDMI 2 on the TV and using analog audio output jacks to the TV to hook up the ZVOX .....if I go that route will the sound from the Blu-ray still be heard on the ZVOX set?

If I go with the Sony soundbar I believe which 2 or 3 HDMI inputs on it so I could directly hook the Blu-ray to that, is that correct?

Will either way still give me good sound, or is one better then the other?

In answer to you connection question, yes, with the ZVOX 525 you would connect all devices, including Blu Ray player, to your TV, then connect the audio output of the TV to the input of the ZVOX. You use the TV as a switching/control center, which is was made to do. Regarding sound quality, we suggest you read reviews on Amazon and CNET, and buy where you get a return policy.

Is there any tax or shipping fees?

FWIW, I just returned my 525 for the Yammy YHT-S400. The 525 just wasn't loud enough for my needs.
