    Hi all,
    I have been looking at a minimalist system, polk soundbar and polk psw pro 400 sub. Does anyone know how this performs? Are there better alternatives? Standard 5.1 is not an option. :)

    I know you asked about a soundbar, but have you considered the KEF Five-Two series? It will give you a 'virtual' 5.1 system and all in a minimalist package?

    Just a suggestion.

    Hi all,
    I have attached a very simple layout. If I can persuade her indoors to go with the best system for £1000 to £1500, which is best? If I can't win that argument, which 3.1 or soundbar system is best? Please help as i am confusing myself. I have 50" plasma, blu ray, sky hd, pioneer vsx1018.
    Thanks for helping:)

    Yamaha YSP-40D if you want everything built in.

    Have you considered something like the Monitor Audio Radius speakers instead as looking at your room layout I am not sure why you can't go with satellites for 5.1 ?
