    I am in the process of deciding whether to keep my current speakers (PSB Stratus Silvers) which are very large (left, right and center) or switch to a soundbar. I do listen to music, but I wouldnt go as far as calling myself a true audiophile. My room size is 18' wide by 25' deep and my TV (a 70" Vizio LED/LCD) will be hung on the wall shown in this photo. Is there a soundbar option that will provide good capabilty for music reproduction as well as for watching movies, sports, etc.? [​IMG]

    No. Keep the speakers, or if you want smaller speakers, buy them.

    I agree with Jim, the speakers will sound better. If you are dead set on a soundbar, the Atlantic Technology Power Bar 235 is pretty decent. The Martin Logan Motion Vision sounds pretty good too.

    Separates all the way. Easier to upgrade quality in the future.

    You'll appreciate it.
