I liked this for a small living room and I want something similar in the sense of HDMI x2 or more, TrueHD/DTS-HD support, a large sub like the CT-100, and bluetooth would be nice as long it's for Android also. Budget less than $400 please but maybe sales will pop up if near my price. Any input is appreciated.

I'm in a similar situation. I've looked at everything and can't seem to find something. The CT100 has been mediocre, but lacks in volume and sound fidelity. Definitely need something louder and would love to stream BT.

After exhaustive research, I think I've settled on the Yamaha YHT-S401 soundbar. It's $599 regular priced (can find cheaper), but has everything (3 HDMI inputs, bluetooth, wireless sub). That's at least what I'm getting...

Thanks for the suggestion. Out of curiousity where is it cheaper? Also I didn't see it having bluetooth at least not on Amazon's page. It does have a USB.

Yeah, you're right - no BT. I saw it cheaper at Costco, but didn't realize it was Costco in Canada. So, it's not cheaper anywhere else.

I've decided to use my receiver and get the BIC FH-56 soundbar instead. I need something substantial, and nothing compares to that beast.
