I am looking to put an A/V system together for a house I am building. Unfortunately, my wife despises audio gear, and speakers in particular. I think I will end up with a 3.1 system with a passive LCR soundbar and a small-footprint subwoofer. I have considered these soundbars:
Triad Mini LCR 3.0
Atlantic Technology FS-5000
Goldenear supercinema 3D array
PSB Imagine W3
I realize 2.0 music playback is not a strength in this category. Any opinions on whether any of these has an advantage in music playback?
I would also consider the Triad Mini LCR 3.0 or Mini LCR 3.0 SE, they use 4" drivers and a bett comparison to the AT 5000. Both are good choices, I haven't used the others. Aesthetically Triad is a good choice as you can get the speaker a custom width to match your flat panel. it will give a little more stereo separation as well but that is minor unless you have a very large flat panel.
