I am trying to find a Soundbar to replace my Sony CT100. My main TV is in a echoey room that makes it hard to hear dialogue from TV shows and movies. The room is 20' x 20' with a 20' ceiling, and has a couple of large openings to other rooms. I am working to soften the room, but I really need a Soundbar that will produce clear dialogue. I also want to use the Soundbar to play music in this room. My Soundbar budget is <$800 or so. I have been reading about the Yamaha YHT-S401 and YSP-2200--both sound like they might do the trick. What Soundbars should I be considering.
Also, I going to using Sonos Connect:Amps to distribute music through my house. If I used a Sonos Connect to drive music through my Soundbar, would I be able to play music through all my zones at the same time, or would the music coming through my Soundbar havea slight delay when compared to my other zones?
