  12. Soundbars
    I have a budget of $700 for a L/C/R setup. I'm leaning towards a Soundbar for the simplicity of it, but I'm interested in a passive soundbar since I already have a Sub (HSU STF-2) and Receiver (Arcam) which I'd like to utilize. I want the Golden Ear, but it's too much $$$. The speakers must...

    I recently began building a budget 5.1 system to replace my 10+ year old Bose Acoustimass 15 system (Bought when I was in high school and didn't know any better.
