Need soundbar with inputs on SUBWOOFER - recommendation challenge!
Good day. I have a Sony HT CT150 (soundbar + sub) which has 3 HDMI inputs and sounds decent in my opinion. However, I am rearranging my setup and the 10' cord from soundbar to the subwoofer with proprietary ends is just not long enough. Instead of splicing into this proprietary cable or purchasing a spliced one, maybe now is the time for a cheap upgrade if possible! Do any of you audio wizards have recommendations that fit my criteria?
-Soundbar will go above my projector screen, pointing downward a bit (It will be about 8' high, with 1' of clearance to the ceiling)
-I need inputs in the sub, not the soundbar. (I don't want to run a mess of cables up above the projector screen)
-3+ HDMI inputs
-I plan to do all input switching with the soundbar, and only have 1 HDMI cable going to a projector
-Bonus points if the soundbar is wireless
-Dialogue quality for TV/Movies is important, so a dialogue mode or adjustable center channel volume adjustment preferred
-Bluetooth is nice, but not required
-Price range about $200 (Ideally would sell the Sony HT-CT150 on craiglist for about 100-125 and do cash for the balance)
-I don't mind refurbished or even banged up as I will probably be camouflaging it in a box with fabric on the front
-Regular infrared remote, not RF (I LOVE my sideclick that I currently use with my Fire TV remote)
-Only need 1080p (no interest in 3d and not likely to go higher than 1080p any time soon unless 4k projectors drop a lot in price)
