It was part of the house. May be you are right, it might be more work than he anticipated.
I think this all boils down to what is your ultimate goal.
If it's to simply improve the sound over the stock TV speakers, and the sound bar provides the audio quality that you desire, then I agree that the 921 is just a waste of device. Sell it and use a remote controllable HDMI switch as Sam suggested.
If your ultimate goal is to have a theater-like surround sound setup, then the 921 is a good piece of equipment to keep on hand, and the soundbar is not really going to help you achieve your goal.
Essentially, an A/V receiver like the 921 and a sound bar like the one you have are each intended for different end goals. It's generally not cost-effective to try and combine the two.
I agree with both of you Sam & Jason. Probably I will keep my 921 and get passive speaker system some time in future and move the sound bar into one of the bedrooms. In the meanwhile based on the set up I have, is there any improvement I can make to get better sound without adding any additional stuff?Thanks to both of you for your input.
Your sound is only as good as the weakest link. If you don't like the 660...Try another soundbar. The only tweak there is with a soundbar is box it up, return, pick another one.
Sorry I should have been very clear. I like the soundbar for sure as it performs way better than my TV speakers. my question is more towards is there any better way of connecting with my setup using 921 as a switcher?
Nope.The way you have the 921 connected is a complete and total waste.
Thanks Sam. I got your point. I am thinking of using 921 in my bonus room or selling it. Can you please point me to very good HDMI switcher which can be controlled using my harmony 900 in a closed cabinets.
There is also the 280710 with 5 inputs, but isn't 3d.
