So maybe a simpler, less amperage solution! Maybe I need one here in my 'office'!


It would work especially in a smaller room, if you don’t have a lot of components, and there’s enough connects in the TV itself for whatever components (including cable/satellite) you do have.

The TV then becomes the hub rather than an amp and you have to do some menu switching to bring in a component.

I am a tad wary of soundbars because I have seen them used – dictated by décor – in larger rooms where they’re lost. However, since soundbars are near-field having one in a small room where space is a factor makes sense.

The only TV I’ve owned that I used the internal speakers was the Mitsubishi and that set was designed to have a good internal speaker system (it also had outboard speakers that straddled the set). However, since then and having flat screens not once. I have used my present TV’s speakers once as an experiment and never again. Once again, too small a speaker for too large a room.

I’d go for the soundbar and subwoofer for the main system. Depending on how that works out (and it should) maybe another for the office system.

OT: got the third season of Justified and I spent last night watching episode after episode. Settled back on the sofa, beer in hand, and enjoyed the mayhem until well past midnight. Life is good.
