I like the idea that the men should have the final say in the home theater system.
But, that just won't work in my household.
I "wear the pants" on alot of issues, but what goes on the walls in our great room is not one of those, unfortunately.
After discussing it for quite awhile, my wife likes the idea of the sound bar best.
So, now I am looking at a sound bar for the front, left & right, which will sit on the mantle, and use the existing in-ceiling rear speakers for surround.
So, does anybody have any experience with the sound bars used only for the front 3 channels.
I was looking at the Monitor one HD, and the Definitive Mythos SSA 50.
The Definitive Mythos SSA 50 would give me the added option of running 7.1 by using the sound bar for 2 of the surround channels.
