I just moved into a new house and the only real place for the TV is over the fireplace. My Polk Audio RTi10's floor speakers and CSi5 center channel will not work in this setup. As such, I am looking for another solution. I am considering a soundbar and have a couple of questions:
How much am I...
Anyone have experience with the Polk Surroundbar 400 CHT? The reviews for it are very sparse, but mostly positive.
The reason I ask is I have one on the way from Crutchfield but just found out today that I can get a Definitive Mythos SSA-50 for only $50 more than the Polk. I know the SSA-50...
I am considering to buy either Bose Cinemate 1SR (powered) soundbar, or Mythos SSA-50 that will require a receiver but provides a little more flexibility. Has anyone listened to both of these soundbars and can provide any comparison of sound quality?
I just received the SSA-50 and since I have 2 more speakers and subwoofer, was thinking of setting up a 7.1 system. Has anyone else done something like this? If so, how did/do you like it?
Realize it depends on what I like, but would like input from others that have tried this.
I have to find basically the best sound bar for my father in law. He favors music over movies. It will sit in the middle of a 17ft long wall a 17 X 12 foot room.
Which one would you choose?
Definitive Technology Mythos SSA-50 Speaker
Atlantic Technology FS-7.1-GLB Surround Bar...
Most soundbars I've seen have a subwoofer, but I'd like to avoid having one since I don't have a good place to put the subwoofer. Also, in my case the main reason for getting a soundbar is not for e.g. experiencing impressing sounds during explosions in movies, but for improving dialog...
