Bedroom sound - should I go sound bar or Receiver 2.0?
Here's my situation: I have my better TV, C8 OLED in my bedroom, and I wanted some good sound to go with it. I really don't want to clutter the room up with too many components or speakers, but I wanted the best sound possible as I would do most of my movie watching here.
I already do have some speakers from the living room I could use, Bowers and Wilkins. In the bedroom Currently I have 2 Apple Home Pods in there that are OK for Apple TV, but not enough.
1.) Do I get a sound bar? Was thinking either a Bose 700 - but possibly that Nakamichi as I'd like Atmos and it seems really well reviewed for the price. Did consider the Sony ones as well.
2.) I could get a slim receiver like the 1609 Marantz, and use a few of my existing speakers from another setup. I have a pair of the BW 685 S2, and M1. (With center channel/sub too)
I didn't want to use all of those speakers in my bedroom, though - so I thought if I would be happier with a good sound bar, or just using 2.0 - maybe 2 Bowers and Wilkins 685s.
I don't want a subwoofer, don't want too loud of a system in there so I'd be OK with 2.0, maybe 3.0 with some virtual DTS X/Atmos simulation.
