I just purchased a condo (my 1st, woohoo) and I want to lose my old 5.1 setup for a clean, minimalist contemporary condo look. Hence, I started looking into soundbars. I've spent countless hours doing research and my head hurts and still no definitive champion. i want a powered bar with a sub (or that has built in decent woofers) that can also play music really well in addition to movies. I don't mind spending up to $1000 and I've narrowed my choices down to the following contestants:
Polk Audio SurroundBar® 9000 Instant Home Theater (not a lot of official reviews of this system but I am leaning toward it because of the specs and the success of the 6000. I just wish it had bluetooth. But apparently the virtual surround is one of the best)
Outlaw Audio OSB-1
Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30 (like the bluetooth)
Yamaha YHT-S401 (friend has this one and it sounds pretty nice)
Atlantic Technology PowerBar-235 (great reviews and no need for a separate sub means more room space)
If anyone has any of these and could help me decided on which one to get, please do! I am losing my mind over here, haha.
Thanks in advance!
