Are there any soundbars capable of providing the quality and depth of sound we know get from our full size 5.1 Infinty Alpha speakers? I also wonder if I could use my present subwoofer with a sound bar. FYI, all of my gear runs through my Denon AVR

Sound bars are a compromise just as in wall speakers are. There is no substitute for real speakers in all 5 or 7 locations in a room properly placed.

Not likely as good as your speakers but they can sound pretty good. You just cannot expect too much...

SoundBars will not beat the real thing - these will work with a receiver.
They can be table or wall mounted, and used with a seperate sub.

I have listened to some Vizio and Yamaha sound bars. They both sounded decent (cant turn volume up too much on these sound bars). They connect directly to the TV.
Or, if you have a receiver, Polk makes a more powerful soundbar with a wired subwoofer that sounds pretty good as well. And I agree with everyone that you cant beat real surround sound.

If you are using receiver there is even less reason to use sound bars IMHO. If speaker size is important it may be possible to find a set of gallo nucleus or similar for the same price a decent sound bar costs.
