AVR & 5.1 speaker package or soundbar?
I'm trying to help a friend decide what sort of sound system to get for his projector room.
This room will be purely for movies. He has another room for general TV.
The room is about 3m x 4m
The screen is on one of the 3m walls with the projector hanging from the ceiling at the opposite end.
The door to the room is right near the corner on one of the 4m walls and opens onto the wall with the screen.
This is making it difficult to work out where to place front speakers (as the door will hit one of them) hence thinking of a sound bar for convenience.
Budget about £500.00 but can go a bit higher if it makes a big difference.
What would you do?
Would a £500.00 sound bar be as good as a £500.00 5.1 system?
Would a system with small satellite speakers be better overall? Small speakers could go in the corners or on the walls without the door hitting them.
I have already advised demoing some kit but he wants some suggestions first to narrow it down.
