    I am seeking a soundbar make/model recommendation.

    I have 2 existing in-ceiling high-quality prewired rear speakers and subwoofer.

    I want a soundbar to receive optical digital out from my TV and then have 2 rear speakers powered from this soundbar. (in addition to subwoofer preamp out)

    This one is a possible solution but it comes with speakers/subwoofer that I don't need and I don't like the connector.

    Prethanks for your responses.

    Soundbar with Wired Surround Speakers - that is going to be a very short list.

    Speakerbar - have you considered an AVR plus a Passive Speakerbar? Again a relatively short list of options.

    Joe, I appreciate the feedback.

    1. AVR has been completely ruled out due to other restrictions
    2. Other than the one I listed do you know of any soundbar that fits my needs?

    (i. powers rear wired speakers, ii. accepts optical iii. has a sub pre out)

    Still hoping to hear of another recommendation for a soundbar that can power 2 wired rear speakers and a sub pre-out.

    I found this one but I prefer standard speaker out connects

    Sony 5.1Ch Sound Bar with Wired Rear Speakers

    Does anyone know of any other?

    Hey guys as described, I have 2 high quality in-ceiling rear speakers that I need to power. Can I buy this unit and use all of the components except for the rear speakers it comes with? I could cut the speaker ends of the connecting wires, strip the ends and use them on the traditional connections of my ceiling speakers right?

    I just wanted to follow up on the solution that I implemented. I purchased this soundbar that includes subwoofer and wired rear speakers. I simply used "speaker wire to RCA" adaptors to plug in my existingin-ceilingg speakers to the sub instead of the included surround speakers. The results are nothing short of amazing. The sound seems to come from every direction and movies are a completely different experience. In addition, it is simple to flip the vizio over to bluetooth to listen to music from my phone.
