Ok so here is the deal I finally joined a forum after months of searching and looking and being confused as heck about what to buy! We are replacing our tv with a 60" Samsung smart tv 3D, we currently have a Visio sound bar that was bought for us as a gift. Before that we had a Panasonic sound bar/DVD player. Neither one of these devices are great but the Visio one while it has its merits is really bad at voice clarity as was the pano. Connecting to...Apple TVDirect TVWiiSamsung tv unsure of model at the moment..Wants....Great voice clarity.Good all around sound.Network connectivity/AirPlayDon't want....Huge speakers.Budget...would like to stay around 500 might go more if its really worth the extra cash.So... Ideally in a perfect world I would want the smallest amp and speakers with the best sound quality for voices. My better half has a very hard time hearing voices from tv shows and movies as the background noises are always over powering with these soundbars and built in speakers of the tv. Neither one of us are huge audiophiles so if it has decent sound and great voice rendering that's all that matters to us. We do not watch but maybe one DVD a year and that goes in my MacBook Pro and streamed through the Apple TV. Everything else comes through DTV, Netflix via Apple TV, so DVD and bluRay is not important.Some of the info I read was about a year ago and most of the stuff recommended isn't available anymore.Someone said the Klipsch C1 was the best at the time for voice clarity. The amp, several said a Denon amp, or marantz. But I researched these suggestions and while most of th remodels they recommended are not available they are also probably outside my comfortable spending zone...as when I added up the suggestions it was well over $1000. Also I am still learning so my questions might be crazy stupid to many.. Sorry in advance. I am also not opposed to a box system but I saw they don't have great voice clarity at least from what I read in several posts. However, if you guys know of a great system, I am not opposed to giving it a go. One more thing a subwoofer is not required or even really wanted. But I know they typically always include them with box systems now.
