On the look out for a 5.1 soundbar with rear speakers.

Hello all.
I'm on the lookout for a great 5.1 soundbar that packs a wallop for movies streamed from my Plex and decent music playback from the same source. I don't own a bluray player so I'm not interested in Atmos, but a good sense of horizontal immersion. Its got to have decent bass and have rear wireless speakers and sub that stay connected. I used to own a Sammy Atmos soundbar a few years ago but I sold it as it kept disconnecting both the rear speakers and sub, and I've had bad experiences with other Sammy products over the years so I'm not interested in Samsung. So any other manufacturer please. Any ideas? I'm on a budget of £1000 so there must some half decent options available. LG, Sony etc. Its going with my 65" Sony Bravia in a fairly small front room.

Many thanks.

I would go with the Sonos beam 2 setup. The sub packs a punch and there are no issues with disconnections.
