I am in the process of getting the Bose Cinemate 1 SR sound bar ( i like it and I want to get rid of my Home Theater system).
I have a few components like a PS3 , Apple TV and a Cable Box and I am told to connect all of them to my TV using HDMI and then use the optical TV output to the Bose 1 SR which makes sense.
My Panasonic manula indicates however that when an equipment is connected to the TV using the HDMI the optical TV output will switches the system to 2CH audio.
Therefore does this means that i will lose all the qualify and effects that this sound bar produces.
Bose is suggesting that I get the Cinemate 135 since I would be able to connect all my components to the sound bar receive however i don't want to pay another 1,000 $ for that ..it just does not make sense.
So based on the above do you think there is a danger in getting the 1SR with regards to sound quality
