    I have an Onkyo amp connected to some wired speakers but I want to get a soundbar so I have no wires. Can I still use the amp to send my PS3/sky to TV via one HDMI and connect the soundbar to the TV directly for audio or does the soundbar have to connect to the amp?
    Thanks for your help.

    It depends what soundbar you have in mind.

    Most soundbars actually are an amp and speakers built into the one block. So whether or not you can do what you want depends entirely on the unit you have in mind and what inputs and outputs it has.

    As a Style option , soundbars are OK , they are certainly better than the speakers built into most of todays screens , but even the best unit wont be anywhere near the quality of a separate amp with wired speakers.

    Thanks for the reply. It was the Samsung HW-D450 soundbar I was thinking of.
