How best to connect to a soundbar
I am considering downgrading from a 5.1 system to a simple soundbar. The surround sound speakers have done little more than collect dust as the TV is not connected to the analogue amplifier, since upgrading the TV and I have little time to watch DVDs.
As I have a Samsung TV it seems to make sense to go for Samsung soundbar, in my opinion, to avoid any compatibility issues. However, the soundbars only seem to have one input ?!?!? This seems to be alot less than my amplifier with 4 digital and 8 analogue inputs.
How does one go about connecting up a blue ray player, TV and satellite receiver. Do I have to connect everything to the TV first then connect only the TV to the soundbar? Does this effect the sound quality opposed to connecting the blue-ray separately to the soundbar?
I understand the soundbar is not a replacement for the separates to which I am used to, but it will clear up the clutter (perhaps I'm getting old ). Does anyone have any other comments?
