I understand that this thread is almost
a year old but the topic is the same so figure I'd update it.
The Polk Audio SurroundBar 360° is now selling for $399 and I'm wondering how good a deal this is and if it can meet my needs. I'm trying to set up my first HT (everything still in boxes or hasn't arrived yet): Panasonic 54G10, HK 247 AVR, a 5-yr old standard DVD player, BIC F12 subwoofer, Polk Audio CS10 center speaker along with a pair of Monitor 40 bookshelf speakers. I paid $204 for the Polk CS10 and M40s. Haven't decided on rear speakers since I'm getting ready to finish my 12x19 basement.
Looking for a nice, simple, and budget-friendly HT. Not even close to being an audiophile, just want something decent to listen to. Given my current set-up would anyone do anything different now that the Polk Audio SurroundBar360° is $399 or should I just hold onto what I have. Also wondering if I need to use the DVD player that comes with the SurroundBar or can any player be used. Any advice, friendly or harsh, is appreciated.
