That's a great question, Fekish!
I'm going through a "simplification phase" in life where I'm considering NOT upgrading my 13+ year old Marantz/NHT amp driven 5.1 system. Instead, I'm considering the forthcoming SoloCinema XTR for our small, but open townhouse floor (where we sit near a corner and face the open area along a wall).
I've only been looking at soundbars a short period of time, so I don't know if (m)any come with basic room correction. I don't like the idea of sound drifting off to the right, where it opens up.
Like I said, it's probably just a phase!
I look forward to monitoring AVS for education and advice.
