We're turning my "man" room into our master bedroom (another story all together). I'm going to be replacing my 5.1 separates with a soundbar (yet again another story). Due to space constraints, I'm wondering if there are soundbars out there that can effectively replace my Onkyo receiver? I see a number of soundbars with 3 or 4 HDMI inputs (I have 4 components that use HDMI, but can use a switch vs. having all the inputs on the soundbar if necessary, I may end up doing this anyway since due to placement of the components, ie, only have one HDMI cable running to the soundbar). Since these have hdmi inputs, can they effectively replace the receiver?
If I'm correct, do you guys/gals have any recommendations? I can easily do a 5.1 soundbar system as well since I have rear speaker mounts and cable ran already. Preferably around $500, but can go all the way up to $1000 for the right system.
