Another thought/question I had is whether there are worthwhile benefits of having an AV Receiver as part of the soundbar setup, i.e. getting a soundbar that requires the receiver. I know it adds cost and work, but: (1) are those types of soundbars "generally" better performing or higher quality than the powered soundbars (I know it greatly depends on the particular product, but with otherwise similarly priced and spec'ed units), and (2) will the Receiver also provide other benefits (like having only 1 longer HDMI cable running to the TV rather than multiple cables for each component - STB, Blu-ray and game console) that are worth the investment. Thanks again!
