Appreciate helping out a newbe for soundbar suggestion
We recently purchased a LG OLED 65B7A TV. After discussing with my wife, we decided to keep the TV our bedroom where our family spend most of our TV time. Anyways, after upgrading the TV, I am thinking my current 3 years old Vizio S4251w-B4 soundbar may need to be upgraded as well. We also updated our Netflix subscription to take advantage of Dolby Vision and Dolby atmos from the build-in LG Netflix software in the TV.
I am looking for the following in a soundbar:
1/ Ability to receive Dolby Atmos via HDMI ARC
from the LG TV (lossy is fine, understood the limitation of ARC vs the new eARC).
2/ Soundbar only OR Soundbar + Sub setup
. No surround speakers needed. The current soundbar setup that we have has soundbar + sub + 2 surround speakers. We turned off the sub and 2 surround speakers 99% of the time. The sub is too loud for our 6 years old and 10 months kids who spend most of their time in our bedroom.
3/ I am thinking I should stick with a LG soundbar from the compatibility perspective. I am not sure the differences between the SK9Y vs SK10Y
. It is about $100 difference in street prices. Is that the right direction? which one?
4/Money is definitely a factor
, unlike most of the rich folks here at the avsforum
. As it is, I will have some convincing to do with my wife, so if there are cheaper alternatives that will meet our needs, I am very interested.
Thanks in advance for helping us out, we appreciate it
