Hi guys..
This is my first time on this forum and I am looking currently to purchase SOUNDBAR. I narrowed to Atlantic Technology H-PAS PowerBar 235 or Speakercraft CS3.

I am looking to get some good sound for movies BUT also to listen music. I love the option of bluetooth on Speakercraft but it is not a deal breaker.. I just want make sure I will buy the right speaker.. I'm over BOSE speakers.. been there, done that and its time to move on.

Any ideas, advice welcome. Thank You.

just wondering if you've ever picked between the Atlantic technology and Speakercraft. Reading from the reviews those both are very good sounding soundbars? did you ever get a chance to listen to both?

The CS3 comes with a Gefen TV decoder box which you may have to use if you utilize your television for OTA channels or streaming services such as Netflix since the sound pedestal cannot decode Dolby digital by itself. For me that's a deal breaker, for $600 it should be able to do that internally and not require a separate box that also takes up an outlet.
