Not sure I want the sonos playbar( I know it's more $$) but I am looking for a sound bar that can be used with a sub. It will be for music and movies. I have 9' ceiling an the room is about 25'x25'. Will get the sub separately after I buy the soundbar. I will want to control my 5.1 system wireless(speaker don't have to be wireless) from iphone, ipad etc. but I believe that the wireless control portion has nothing to do with the speakers but the AVR or AMP.

I've been through six different soundbars within the last 3 months and finally found a keeper. I've tried the Sony-CT260, Speakercraft CS3, Pioneer Elite Soundbar, Haier SB40 and a couple others. The one which ended up as a keeper is the JBL SB-400. It really has everything I was looking for. Great sound, great bass, Bluetooth, lots of connectivity including 3 hdmi in and optical straight to the tv. I really am amazed at how good the surround effect is with this soundbar. The bass can be adjusted on the subwoofer itself as well as the crossover. It can get very very loud if you want it to.

It's priced at $550 on Amazon but I bought mine from a local Fry's electronics store. It may not be on your radar but I think it's definitely worth a look if you want above average sound for both music and movies. Let me know if you have any questions.
