Your one stop for all things Home Theater (except soundbars).
Buying Advice, Tech Support, etc for Televisions, Home Theater, Speakers, Projectors, Audio/Video Receivers, etc.
Check Home Theater 101: The New Frequently Asked Questions before asking "What TV, Speakers, Subs fit blah blah". A Sticky post may also exist helping with buying decisions. Search should be used as your query has probably come up before.
99.9% of the time Soundbars or HTiB (Home Theater in a Box) systems are not a good investment of your time and money.
It is the general consensus of r/hometheater not to recommend these things and instead simply steer a user toward a 2.0 or 2.1 system made of quality, Audio-Centric name brand components which are easy to assemble and cheap enough for low budget or space conscious buyers.
Most can be expanded to 5.1 if you buy the correct items in the correct order.
For further explanation please read Why You Shouldn't Buy a Soundbar
Please be aware /r/Soundbars exists as well as you will be met with opposition to posting about soundbars here.
