I am moving house and will be investing in my first LED HD (probably Smart) TV but am unsure what I need to go with it to get the best sound out of it and to hook up to blu ray, laptop, etc.
We are not huge film/addicts and we do not want clutter, so no large number of separates or masses of wires. Appearance is important.
So my inclination is to stay away from Home Cinema systems. However, we want good quality so the picture, sound and versatility is most important.
Is a high quality TV plus a good quality sound bar the solution? I would like to add a Blu Ray and be able to run a laptop through the TV for pictures, etc. and maybe one games console, but that is about it. A Smart TV will provide me with the other applications I need.
Or do I need an AV Receiver (which is what I am being sold)?
If it is just a sound bar, what do you recommend? If this could be wireless, so much the better.
