In MHO, they are half-way decent. Unfortunately, the half part that is missing is the surround part. Face it, the surround sound is coming from the front. Even when you delay it, and adjust the phase response so it has a diffuse and directionless quality, such as a reverberant field, it doesn't sound like a surround field.I'm thinking of getting a soundbar for my bedroom for the simplicity, does anyone have experience with them? Are they have way decent?
It ends up being a lifestyle decision. If you don't want to run surround speakers, then you should consider soundbars, but you absoultely should audition them, or buy from a vendor with a good return policy. The latter choice may be better because sound bars are pretty sensitive to your listening room and the setup details.
