I have been going back and forth with what to do for the family room. Buy a receiver and speakers for a 5.1 or but a Soundbar that emulates surround sound.
Soundbar is a good solution where there are few wires and no need to run cables etc, which wife does not want anyways.
So i went to the store and listened to the Bose 1 SR which had some great reviews over at AVS forum and I was impressed, and i have never listened to Bose products in the past and they are not considered very good, but I was impressed with this sound bar.
I also listened to the Yamaha YSP 2200, I think it was not properly set up coz I did not hear the sound effect as people have claimed it has.
I came back home and started doing some research and Sonos came up.
Now I am very interested in this set up if possible.
So will a Playbar and sub and 2 Play 1 or play 3 be a good 5.1 option.
Will i also have the flexibility to move the play 1 or play 3 into a different room when not using them as surround in the family room.
I don't know much about sons, so any advice here would be helpful.
I want it for mostly movies and tv, but also like the fact that I can stream Spotify wirelessly.
I have read that the play-bar has only limited connectivity so are they planning to introduce a new sound-bar anytime soon as I can wait if its a matter of few months.
I have a LG tv if that matters and will be using NAS to stream movies to the TV.
