Cambridge Audio Minx 200 or Sonos Playbar?
English

Hello, I am new here.

I would like to update my sound system and keep it to the minimun.

I need a new set of speaker or just one speaker (soundbar) for my living room to watch TV (also for Apple TV) and listen to music from computer (airplay) or iPhone.

My question is:

Would Cambridge Audio Minx 200 be ok for these purposes? I was thinking of connecting my TV to Minx or Sonos Playbar and also my Apple TV to a TV.

Would it work for both of the instruments or just for one? Which one would you recommend? I don't want to buy an Airplay enabled speaker and a playbar separately, I just want one device.

 

Thanks

I would recommend the Playbar. I demoed it over the weekend, and it does sound very impressive.

The Playbar is more purpose built for TV sound, with dedicated left, right & centre channels. It will also have a good stereo separation for music due to the same reason.

Will Sonos Playbar also work nicely with Apple TV? Sonos has only one optical connection to the TV. So, if I connect apple TV to TV (Samsung) via HDMI and then TV to Playbar, if I start streaming via Apple TV the sound will go automatically into the Playbar?

Yes that is correct.
