I'm debating (and open to suggestions) between getting the Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-SSA3 soundbar
or Polk Audio Blackstone TL250's. These will be replacing older Polk Audio satellite speakers. I have a Polk sub.
For the time being, I only intend on using the Front Left, Right, Center and Sub. I may or may not add two surround speakers in the future.
The speakers will sit on a credenza for now. At some point I'm mounting my TV and assume the soundbar would look better than three satellite speakers.
Would the soundbar sound better or at least as good as having the polk set up with the back speakers?
I'm trying to stay under $800. I know polk has a non powered soundbar but not sure if the Polk Audio Soundbar 400 is better than the Mythos mentioned above? I do like the fact the polks give you the option to use LCR mode or 5 channel mode (not sure I would use the fake surround mode).
Thanks in advance, appreciate any insight.
