Thanks for sharing. I have an old school 5.1 system but must wire up.....ha ha ha.

Looks like the modern 2.1 sound bar isnít the improvement for tv sound that appeals to me.
If you want best surround experience than yes a 5.1 setup will be ideal
but you need to deal with cabling.
That is why these days most opt for soundbar, easier.

Cheapest 5.1 is the Onkyo HTS-3800.

Not say poor sounding.
I guess you have never heard a 5.1 setup before?
Soundbar the speaker are all squeeze together in one bar.
If you want wider, more fuller surround effect 5.1 setup
would be better.

Not to mention directional audio like people walking past you
can hear it as if you are there.
Soundbar is difficult especially with those 2.1 speaker design one.

They just create a virtual surround so directional audio can be
not accurate and hard to hear.
Not to mention AVR tend more wattage, power per channel (From 100 watts)
thus the sound is even more powerful and punchier
than soundbar.

For a movie lover like myself who play Blu ray disc, soundbar doesn't suit me.
I have a soundbar setup but that is used for gaming.
My 4K Setup is with a Onkyo 5.1 $699 so far so good.

For best sound, your source is important.
Blu ray still win hands down, Netflix and etc. doesn't appeal
to me as they are using Dolby D or DTS which are compressed
formats.

Blu ray have either DTS Master Audio/X, Dobly TrueHD/Atmos
loseless surround sound format.
Can feel as if you are at Cinema.
Currently use a cheap 5.1 first later than upgrade to Dolby atmos
setup as need to do cabling and mounting which sought of blow my budget.
Well, technology made the different. Close enough especially if you have limited space and do not have the capacity to wire up the surround speaker to the back of the room. Sound bar become a easy choice.

Xiaomi box is more flexible. You screw up the firmware, all you lost is $100 +/-.
You screw up the TV, then you have to make sure dealer still allow you to claim warranty.

Got my Sony TV but realized the Google play store apps for Android TV is limited.

Dun even have VIU TV.

Browsing the internet is slow and cumbersome.
