I haven't been very active in the speaker / HT game, so I don't know if:
- The Infinity TSS 3-in-1 is good enough
- It's important to buy a system where all the parts were designed to work together
- The tech has advanced to the point where HT speakers from 10+ years ago are obsolete
- I'm missing some other factor
It's a good idea to have matching or at least same family model line speakers (especially with immersive audio) and it might be difficult to pair anything with an older speaker like that. Besides, compared to good "normal" speakers and a sub, a sound bar is just not good enough IMHO.
What is your budget? Is it flexible? What are your three room dimensions? Open floor plan? Music and movies, or mostly movies? What kind of stuff do you listen to? Expect pulse pounding volume levels with thunderous bass?
Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!
