Don't forget the line of computer speakers if you need smaller size without AVRs (comes in tiny M1, M2 and M3s) with small sub too.

I "cut the cord" a long time ago, and use only a Roku and the apps on the TV. I will eventually add the blu-ray player back in.

All the suggestions given here are what I WISH I could do for the best sound possible. However, I think the soundbar with a wireless sub is the best I can do given my space. With the popularity of soundbars nowadays, it would be cool to see Axiom make one. I'll bet they could design something really awesome.

I would like to note that the Axiom system will be in a dedicated home theater in the basement as soon as it gets remodeled. It might be awhile though.

No matter what, moving beyond the TV's speakers is going to be a meaningful improvement. I'm glad you'll eventually be able to use your bigger system. In the meantime, make sure you come back with pics of your setup when it's up and running.

I'd consider moving the on wall fireplace to the left wall, that would open up some room for speakers and audio equip, etc....

Just to throw my $0.02 in, my father needed a new TV so we ended up getting a Samsung 55" 4K and a Polk Audio Soundbar with wireless subwoofer. Initially I was sceptical about the sound however upon setting up the system I was pleasantly surprised how good it sounds even though the room is large (12' x 20'). I am going to add the same soundbar to my 65" Panasonic plasma in the games room for my son's Xbox system.

Can you share the model? I've decided against the Sony ST5000. I just can't justify $1,500 on a soundbar. I don't even think one can realistically reproduce 5.1 let alone Atmos. I've decided I'm going with a 3.1 soundbar. The reviews I've been reading on soundbars is overwhelming. What's interesting is the most expensive ones don't get any better reviews than the cheaper ones.

I think I'll order this one...the soundbar for the rich. wink Seriously, who is this for? At that price, it can't be for the average consumer.

Mary, have you looked at Kef's soundbars? they look pretty sleek and appear to not need much space heightwise. Usually Kef speakers get half decent reviews, for the most part.

Wow that's crazy.
Not sure how that can compare to actual placements and room lay outs with speakers of traditional/new techs.
Maybe it's like those reflective up firing atmos. speakers?
