SWMBO mentioned about getting a new TV soon (yay) but in truth it'll be "budget" such as a Veon (Heard good pic but sound crap), so Im going to try to swing in a sound bar as well, something semi-decent as we like our music and like to hear movies at a reasonable volume.
Current setup is an aging Samsung HTIAB system, and while it does have digital in (and have the Xbox connected), its not quite doing the job.
So looking at something similar to these.....
But I'm fairly green when it comes to the sound specifications/standards around there days. 5.1 I understand, but then throw in AC3, DD, DTS, Atmos etc etc and thats where I start going a bit pale.
Most of our media is streamed from Plex, TVNZ Ondemand etc....
Our main issue is that a lot of stuff via Plex is fairly low in volume when played via the current setup, especially speech via the centre channel. Ive checked for sound tweaking options on the DVD player and there appears to be none. If I play a DVD, the sound is so much better.
So Im guessing its something along the lines of the format the video audio is presented, potentially something better than what the HTIAB can deal with...... so will one of the above help ?
Help ? :)
No rush, wont be looking until well into the new year :)
