As I've aged and technology has progressed, I've become more and more clueless on electronics.
So, we have an approx 6 year old 32" Sony Bravia tv (32" is largest size that will fit in my wife's "cabinet") in our small living room area. Tv only has 1 HDMI imput, so we use a splitter between blue ray player and PS3. We are not enthusiats, but use tv for watching sports, movies, tv shows and kids' PS3 gaming.
Thinking about upgrading the quality of sound and like the ease of a soundbar.
I am by no means an audiophile, but have 2 Bose Acoustimass systems in other parts of the house ( 1 system is 20+ years old), and have always enjoyed the sound of Bose products. I have read enough reviews to know that many people dislike Bose and believe they do not make quality products, in addition to being overpriced.
We listened to the Bose Cinemate 1 SR at store yesterday and both my wife and I were very impressed. I know the in store experience is not the same as the in home sound, but compared to everything else we heard (most other products were in $300-$500 range), the sound quality seemed better.
I love the sound, but $1,500 is a lot of $ and is more than the tv is worth at this point. Also, I've read the 1 SR does not have any hdmi connections, and also lacks bluetooth.
Any thoughts, suggestions or direction you can offer are appreciated.
