Sound bars vs. Surround system (Home theatre)
Okay, so I'm looking to add a little bit of sound to my set up. I have a Samsung 32" Flatscreen connected via HDMI to xbox and a DVD player.
So bear with me because I'm not overly knowledgable in terms of home theatre/sound and such.
My room is 10x11, and my roommate shares a wall and sleeps a lot so I don't need anything toooo extravagant. Nor can I really afford it. But I wanna add something for a little bit of sound...you know some discernable bass, ehanced subtleties and the like.
I'm looking at a $250-300ish Samsung surround. But I've been looking into sound bars as well, from what I'm hearing due to the limited space I need to fill with sound and set stuff up in, is that they might be a good option.
Does anyone have experience with these? Pros/cons vs. surround units (particularly in that price range). Recommendations and deals are also appreciated.
