Nakamichio Shockwafe Ultra 9.2.4 Ch VS. N950 VS. Q90R

Looking to spend around $1,200 or less.

TV - 55" Sony XBR-900E

Devices - Blu Ray Player, Amazon Fire TV Gen 2, Game System

Have leaned on my Techie friend and he has told me the following are all excellent choices:

Nakamichio Shockwafe Ultra 9.2.4 Ch ($1200 on Amazon)


Q90R (Walt's TV offered me the Q90R for $970 shipped)

Would you pick one of these three or something different? Originally the wife and I looked at the HTZ9F from Sony, but at $899 it doesn't even include the rear speakers.

Question - The Q90R only has 2 HDMI inputs and is capable of eARC, my TV can only do ARC. Should I get a HDMI 5 port switch and plug everything into that and run that HDMI cable to the Sound bar then Sound Bar to TV? On the 900E only ports 2 and 3 are 4K capable @ 60hz, and one of those ports (3) is ARC. Can anyone advice the best SB under $1,200 and the best way to route it?
