Hey folks, this is my first post... I've done a little reading on here and similar sites, and I keep coming back to the same problem. I'm trying to set up a relatively casual home theater setup in my living room. Currently I've got 3.1 channels, and am in the process of finishing wiring in-ceiling speakers for the rear. TV is mounted above the fireplace, with a center and two bookshelf speakers on the mantle. Now... my wife hates having all those speakers up there. The TV speakers sound horrible, obviously, and I rather enjoy watching movies/concert blu-rays/whatever on my tv. Are there any soundbars out there, that when paired with my powered subwoofer, and run through my pretty decent Onkyo receiver that will be any good? Or am I stuck between a rock and a hard place? I don't really want to spend the time/money/effort in mounting speakers in the wall, as the actual 'home theater' will be upstairs, and we aren't really even planning on staying in this house all that long anyway. It's already got rear channels in the ceiling (though, one needs to be moved, unfortunately), so I'm trying to do as little as possible to get the best possible sound. I've used one of the Yamaha soundbars before, and it was only marginally okay - though, being a powered unit, it wasn't run through a receiver, and we used a subwoofer with it... which sounded okay. I like the idea of the polk being unpowered so that I can use my good receiver to process the sound, and pair it with my powered subwoofer. And then I just came across this: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=252-400 Is this a horrible idea? Or a moderately okay one? If I went with that, I could wire the 'rear' channels on the soundbar to the side/fill-in channels on my receiver and have a half-assed 7.1 channels total with the in-ceiling rears. I guess mainly what I'm asking is are there any soundbars that put out a decent sound image? I'm not going for top-notch theater quality... just decent, clear sound that isn't too terribly muddled together, as this would be the tv we watch 90% of the time, and use the bigger system/tv upstairs to watch movies and such. Thanks in advance for the help!
