So, I've already got my media room set up and now just need to get the family room tv sound up to something that's decent and doesn't hurt my ears!. I have a Panasonic ST-55 plasma that has those god awful speakers (despite the beautiful picture). I have Directv service and I plugged in my Velodyne 10" sub from the RCA out of the DVR and got the low end sounding good, but just need a sound bar for mid's and highs. I want to keep this set up very simplistic (w/o Receiver and all). DVR box has optical and digital coaxial out, so there has to be something that would fit here. Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Rob

I don't think there are any sound bars that have a digital connection. All the ones I've looked at have regular speaker wire connections. Does the Velodyne have speaker wire level outputs? With a built in XO. If not you will have to get an AVR to connect the sound bar.
The sound bar I like is the Revel LCR8.

Probably the Yamaha YAS-101 / ATS-1010. It has optical and coaxial inputs as well as a subwoofer output.

I thought about that as well. I had the pleasure of hearing it at Costco and, even there, it sounded great.

I have a YAS 101 hooked up to my 42" upstairs and it sounds good for not having a sub!

My Velodyne sub does have wire speaker outs, so maybe a standard center channel or R and L would work??

Any opinions on the LG models? They have optical inputs as well and one model has 3" "subs" in the bar itself.
