Recommendation replacing MS650 sound bar with amp


Active Member
Hello all,

I'm a bit out of the loop on AV stuff at the moment, need a recommendation please.

My downstairs TV has my PS4 and Sky running through a Yamaha RAV 241 5.1 amp, which although it's many years old, still seems great for music, tv, surround etc. On my upstairs tv I thought i would short cut that setup buying the samsung MS650 soundbar, which is good, but really needs the separate sub to get decent bottom end. The sub is £360, the soundbar was around £250, so all of a sudden it's not such a cheap setup.

Now I'm thinking sell the soundbar and just buy a decent AV amp with a sub as I'm sure something equivalent to the yamaha RAV would be cheaper and probably better?

What do you guys think?
