Soundbars ARE rather poor in most cases.
I suggest the following:
Get a pair of Pioneer BS-22 speakers from Amazon for around $100.
These are SO much better than any other speaker you can get for under $250 that it makes them a steal.
Then get a Onkyo TX-8255 receiver for around $140, and you will have some very nice sound.
Does your old TV have analog audio outputs, or just a digital output?
If it has only a digital output, you will need to get a digital-to-analog converter, which only costs around $20 from Amazon.
