Sonos beats in-ceilings any day. Not even close.Moving into new house and I want to set something up for the living room. The room is open concept so there's no left or right wall and putting speakers around will just be odd and people might trip over.
I have 2 options-
1. Sonos route with arc,2 ones on the back and a sub. Total around 2k i think.
2. Get sub, receiver and install ceiling speakers - 4 or 6? Maybe 2k plus installation?
I am coming from listening audio through TV so either is a step up. The latter probably will cost me ~1k installation fees.
Not sure which is better choice. Definitely 1 is less intrusive and minimalistic. If I go with 2 what can I get in terms of receiver and sub and speakers? I think sonance, bw and Logan are some popular brands.
However, if you have $2K you can get an EXCELLENT 3.1 or 2.1 system ... skipping surround speakers means no tripping hazards anyhow.
