Buying a Soundbar....Can't Believe It
I'm looking into a Soundbar. Can't believe I'm saying that. I've had an Energy Take 5 system for nearly 20 years. Its time. Initially I thought I'd get another 5.1 system, but for the past two years we've only been running a 3.1 Now with an 8 month old, don't want cables running everywhere and a Soundbar seems the most logical.
A few questions:
1) How would a soundbar and sub compare to the Energy Take 5? The sub is the 150 watt 10" if that helps.
2) The Receiver I have is from 2013, a Pioneer SC-1522. Its a 9.1 system with DTS HD Master Audio, Dolby True HD, but no atmos. Would I plug a soundbar into it? Or would I get rid of the receiver altogether? I imagine I could sell it for $200 ish maybe?
3) What do I even look for in a Soundbar? I'm literally 60 minutes into beginning my research.
4) Do people get a soundbar and sub separate? Or go for the package deal?
