$2500 is quite a bit for a soundbar. My assumption is that you have an aesthetics issue, not an actual space or placement issue. That being said, I would take my time and listen to most of the brands. Yamaha, Bose, B&W, Martin Logan, Boston Acoustics, Paradigm's Shift line etc all offer soundbars. My strong advice is to buy a soundbar that utilizes a subwoofer, which many have a wireless option. Start from the top of your budget and work you way down. While great products can be had for low prices, its typically the exception, not the rule. Starting from the top will keep you from having to demo 18-25 soundbars to only about 8-10. Good luck.
