I have moved my receiver to the garage and my wife has the living room cleanup of my surround sound speakes. I am looking for a soundbar that needs no extra speakers and can deliver a good optical digital sound off my HDMI Direct TV receiver. Is there one out there? Even a Walmart refurbished one would do as it would not be used but only for sports events and movies from a DVD player.
YAMAHA, has the Yas 101 available at most WalMarts for $198, it does have two built in 3.5 inch downfiring subs which are ported to the sides, also has optical input. The bar is about 9 lbs to accomodate the subs and it is slightly deeper than most bars due to internal amp. There is a sub output if you want to add a stronger external sub in the future.
