Soundbar for large room?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm in the process of refurbishing my 6mx6m listening room and I've added a 65" TV on one wall.

I'm not interested in having lots of crap little av speakers but I'd like a decent sound bar for 5.1.

Any recommendations? I'd prefer used.

Personally, I’d go Sonos.

maybe there’s a few 2nd hand soundbars going around as people trade up to the newer Arc?
Start off with just the bar, or maybe a bar & a couple of Sonos 1’s for the rears & then add the sub when funds allow.

Yamaha would probably be the only other bar I’d be tempted by, but I used to have a Yam2700 bar & the Sonos is miles better.

Can you remember what speaker combination they were running? Going by the Canton website one of the strengths of this may be that it can be run in lots of configurations, from the soundbar on its own through to basically a 5.1 system where it acts as the center channel:

They had a some speakers running wireless behind me if I remember rightly.The soundbar 9 was also on display .A cracking setup though would be dear to purchase as a 5.1

At the 2018 Bristol show I was similarly impressed by a set of Canton active floorstanding speakers that they were demoing partly for AV use. These I think:

My £70 YSP-1000 sound bar is phenominal- going to eventually move it into my study for 2CH office music.

Does anyone know if this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Docooler-Omnidirectional-Microphone-Condenser-Conference/dp/B0757K3P77/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=3mm+microphone+omni&qid=1610558652&sr=8-13

would work in lieu of the yamaha DSP omnidirectional measurement microphone?

They are £35 new and this is a half the price
