Interested to hear this too, comparing it with nose 300
Is sonos playbar without sub worth?

any other recommendation?

Will be replacing my current samsung hw-751 sound bar.

my usage is a mix of music, gaming and movie.

Not aware of any with this feature.. but I don't have much contact with soundbars... I bought a Yam for my MIL, and I tried the Denon Heos, that's it.
Just remember, the more functions it has for the same price, the lower the sound quality.

Seems Sony lowered the prices of some soundbars. http://www.sony.com.sg/microsite/promotions/hav/

Would i be better off with the CT800 at 649 or should i stick to the YAS207

Between HT-CT390 and CT800, which one has a better mid range?

I'm not sure as I did not test it out. I think ultimately you have to test for yourself in their showroom as everybody's taste is different

More or less the same just change the voice type.
If you are playing music just get a separate HIFI, Soundbar
are more for movies/videos than music.

Hi there Audio gurus, need some advise from you guys.

I am intending to buy the LG 55C7T TV and thinking if I should get a sound bar together and try to get a better deal.

Lets say if I am working with a budget of $500 bucks for the sound bar.
What sound bar should I get ?
My usage is just mainly youtube, tv variety shows, music and movies (from streaming and netflix).

Initially I was looking at the Sony CT-290 cause I just wanted a cheap one.
But later on I think LG having some promotion.
So I was looking at the LG sound bars. SJ-8 in particular.
For the reviews I read, LG sound bar are like just so-so.

Hope to hear some advise from you all.
Thank you very much in advance !
