I'm getting a 42" Panasonic plasma TV for my 15' by 20' living room and would like to get a soundbar for better sound. I'm not expecting miracles, just something with some more kick.
WireCutter had me thinking Vizio VHT215 , then I thought maybe a Panasonic would integrate better. I've tried searching, but I think I'm just complicating my search and confusing myself, so I'd like to ask for a recommendation or two.
Here's my criteria:
1. Around $300.
2. I won't have a receiver, just a cable box, AppleTV and maybe an Xbox. I'd like something that's basically plug-and-play and will automatically turn on/off with the TV and switch to the right source without hassle.
3. I don't care if it requires power.
4. I'll probably need a wireless subwoofer.
5. Less than 40" wide would be ideal. I'm working with an in-wall cavity, hence why I'm settling for 42".
Thanks for any help offered and sorry if I left our some vital information.
