1. Is there a big difference between 2.1 and 5.1 soundbars? I'm hearing a lot of good things about the Pioneer SP-SB23W, but it's only 2.1. Shouldn't 5.1 always be better than 2.1?
2. Is it possible to connect my PC(has HDMI) and TV to one soundbar? If yes, how? Most soundbars I've looked at doesn't have HDMI ports.
"Supposedly" a NEWER version with HDMI in/out is supposed to be coming out. But it has been expected forever, and it is still a no show.
There are a TON of 2.1 bars. The Pioneer is overvalued IMHO. The Sony HTCT-260 is an awesome 2.1 soundbar at $249, sometimes $50 less when on sale. It's bigger brother, the HTCT-660, has the HDMI inputs you want, but is about $70 more than the htct-260.
I would go with the SONY or VIZIO. You want surround, the VIZIO is your only option at reasonable cost.
Hi may be a little off topic but I'm thinking of buying two soundbars. One for the living room and one for the den does anyone know if I can connect via bluetooth to both soundbars at the same time and stream music?
I would say no because you actually have to pair the device with the soundbar. AFAIK, you need to terminate the bluetooth connection with one device before you pair with another.
