Out of curiosity, what is the cubic volume of your TV room? You have said in the past it’s a smaller room but how small? The soundbar you’re getting could be the perfect answer if it’s a smaller room. Like to hear your feedback if you decide to buy.

Made me look! 20x14x8 so 2240 cubes! Split about in half by the kitchen counter at the 10 foot mark... I've decided, just haven't made the trip up the road to pick it up... Disadvantage of not getting the RX-V673 along with it is the calibration it would offer with their YPAO setup... But I think for the savings I can manage...

Then I'll have to see if I need one here in the 'office'...

Smaller rooms have a faster reverb than larger and that’s why the Yamaha soundbar would work well in that room since, essentially, it’s a near-field speaker set suitable for smaller spaces. Coupled with the powered sub you’ll have, I believe, good sound.

The kitchen counter makes the reverb time even shorter. I would try an experiment of covering the face of the counter with a blanket to see if this affects the tonality of the soundbar and sub.

Basically you have an area 14x8x10 (1120 cubic feet) and while the area behind the counter adds some capacity my guess is it won’t add that much to the room’s echo characteristics. It’s a tight room – but then again I’ve seen similarly sized editing rooms and they work.

As for the ‘office’, you really really really need a soundbar for your TV there. Get two and be done with it and save an extra trip.
