    yea....i've got a devon A/V receiver that's like 7.2 capable...it's old now...but still is pretty sweet.
    I'm just running two towers mostly for music...but it does pretty good for home theater...really want a center channel (for dialogue track)...and a sub...but those somehow always get kicked to the bottom of the buying list.

    For sure man. I'm an audiophile from way back but I do almost all my music through cans or buds. So for the TV audio I've always been fine with a 5.1. Then I just made the mistake of actually looking at how far TV audio has come in the last 10 years. That lead me to needing, not wanting, Dolby Atmos. That's gonna require at least a 9.1.4 system and I'll most likely get that Samsung at 11.1.4.

    The TV will support it natively but having a sound bar that has a chip capable of upscaling just also became a need. I could go the AV receiver route and I still might. It just seems sound bars with Atmos support have come very close to being able to replicate true ceiling mount speakers. To do a proper AV system puts me in the attic pulling wire. An Atmos sound bar avoids all of that.

    From all the reviews I'm reading the Samsung seems like it's the best choice.

    Vizio also has the Elevate which is cool but my old Vizio bar likes to lose the satellites in the middle of a damn movie.

    There's also the Nakamichi Shockwafe at 9.2.4 but I'm not sure whether I want to deal with 2 subs.

    I kinda answered that above but here's a more complete answer.

    Will even an 11.1.4 soundbar with a sub and 2 satellites match a true AV receiver with reference speakers and an amp? Fuck no. Will it make everyone but true audiophiles go "Holy shit"? Fuck yeah. lol

    yea...plus i do see the allure of a 'simpler' and (less $$$ all in) set up for sure...
    even two bookshelf speakers and sub will go a long way...
    now you've got me thinking about a soundbar hahaha

    This is the best deal I've found. Seller has a 100% satisfaction rate and free returns. It's 23% less then Big A. Plus I get 5% cashback from Discover if I use PayPal to buy it. Going to find a quarter now. Heads I buy it. Tails I don't.

    13 tails to 4 heads. There's a 1.81% probability of that happening. It's just not meant too be. lol

    Now I need you to buy it anyway and see what happens. Will it not arrive? Be used? Suck? Translate everything into Russian? Or start a fire? Shouldn’t we find out what happens when you go against the coin?

    I've been using the coin toss to make important life decisions since I was 10. I don't question random chance. lol

    So, instead, I make another random chance event happen. Right now it will get ordered if the NASDAQ is green at close tomorrow. 50/50 still. lol

    since we're on audiophile shit. Those L82 s in blue would be in my possession if i had money to blow rn. Smaller L52s were announced a month or so ago. I know probably better stuff for what they cost but style is also essential imo and what other company has speakers that look that good old or new?
    Somebody gimme calls that could net $2500 asap hahah

    I bet the bullet and replace my onkyo 5.1 this year because of the Lack of eARC Ended up with a sony after lots of research on price vs performance. The biggest issue I have with the eARC is audio sync problems it seems like it randomly happens various times with various sources. Just be ready to have to try to figure out how to fix it by either switching Dolby auto or manual or using delay built into the receiver.
