So I'm looking into getting a YSP-5600SW as a replacement for my (not kidding) Logitech Z5500 set that is currently hooked up to my LG B6. As I moved last year my new room setup lacks the practical space to place separate speakers in the rear for starters as wires currently run everywhere and the dog has managed to take one of them down on more than one occasion (I also may have helped once or twice). So I want to go for the one big black box fits all solution and this one seemed the best for my needs (well, wants is more like it). But there are two issues that I'm trying to solve: 1: The case of the missing HDR 2: The placement of the whole thing. So the HDR question: as there is no HDR pass through and it sounds like it is technically not possible to patch it in can I use my current solution: I have everything hooked up to the TV, and use the optical out to pass the encoded bitstream directly to the Logitech set. Is this possible or does everything need to be hooked up to the soundbar via HDMI? And the second question: The thing is huge and I like the clean look of just the TV panel, so I was hoping to place it in something like this: Looking at the angle the up firing speakers are placed on the Yamaha site I think it might work if placed directly up front but I'm not sure. So, anyone has any experience with these issues?
