Which soundbar to suit corner sofa?


Active Member
Hi guys, hoping one of you experts can help and thanks in advance.

I have been researching soundbars for a couple of weeks & it is a minefield, so hoping someone had an idea of best fit for my room.

I have a 55” Philips oled tv and want to have a good soundbar, sub and rear speakers, however, my room limits where the rears would need to be.
Room is 3.7m x 4m x 2.3m high

Sub would be next to the tv in the corner marked red and speakers can be on stands marked red or on top of the corner sofa marked green if it was the detachable rears.
I may at some point wall mount, but for now this would be the only option.

I have sockets available at each corner of the room

I’ve been looking at these;
HW-Q990b - This would be around Black Friday. I have the money but would hate for it to drop £500 a few months after buying
HW-Q950a - honestly not a fan of the fabric
JBL BAR 9.1 - I like the idea of the detachable rears, but not sure the would suit in the position shown
Philips Fidelio B97 - is it a good idea to get this with it been a Philips tv?

Are any of these suitable to be positioned like the picture?
Or are there any others that would work better?
