I am in the market for a new soundbar and am wondering what to ask Santa for. Keep in mind that we live in an apartment and, out of respect for our neighbors, we would like a soundbar without a sub. This is my TV:
I was looking at some Samsung models but their lower end subless model doesn't come with an optical input and, since my TV doesn't support ARC, that would be the way to go for digital sound. This took me to looking at some Vizio models:
While I don't like the bulkiness of the Vizio, they seem to do the job for the right price. My main concern is being able to mount it properly. I would like to mount it on the wall and directly behind and about the TV. Is there any flexibility in the mounting bracket to do this? I know someone else that has the VSB200 and they have theirs mounted underneath a shelf right above the TV so I might have a problem unless there are mounting options that will allow it to be attached to the wall with the speaker facing out.
My last question (I promise) is if anyone has any recommendations for another relatively cheap subless soundbar that sounds good, has an optical input, and can be mounted on a wall above the TV. Ideally, it would be long and skinny rather than fat and bulky.
Thanks in advance for your help.
