We switched to a Sonos sound bar and subwoofer Archived Message

Itís been a total game changer. What you lose in sound quality you make up for in convenience. |
L and R are pretty decent bookshelf speakers, so no need for subwoofer. Thatís what we did in our last house and I liked it.
Havenít listened to a soundbar before, but I canít imagine the give the same sense of spacing / depth of field (width?)
Why not just get a nice sound bar? Do you have a full surround setup?
Looking to buy a new receiver (old one was 20 years old).
New receiver has HDMI inputs. How does that work- I plug the Apple TV HDMI into the receiver? And then an HDMI out from the receiver to the TV? Or do I need some kind of HDMI splitter? Or is HDMI on the receiver irrelevant and I leave the Apple TV alone, but run audio from the TV to the receiver?
