Best Sound Bar for a 55 inch Flat Screen?


I'm looking for the best sound bar for the money. I don't want a room full of speakers, just one sound bar that will give me good quality sound for at least 5 to 7 years, I have a medium size room with two large entry ways to other rooms. Right now I'm considering the Power Bar Elite LINK . I did not want to spend this much but from listening to different models at Best Buy this seems to sound the best at this price range. Thoughts?

I'm springing for the Panasonic Viera 55" TC-P55VT50.

A clown at Best Buy told me the Panasonics are really good. I'm happy with mine. Don't have the resources or layout to do surround sound, just need volume for football games and movies. I will say that I can't tell the difference between a couple of the settings.

$600 for a soundbar sounds a bit absurd

Bunk, Are you saying you are not using an external Sound Bar and your are just using the sound from the Panasonic Flat Screen?

I've got the Bose two speaker system and it is pretty damn good.

No, I have a Panasonic sound bar with sub. The sound bar was like three or four hundred bucks.

Thanks Bunk! I'm hoping someone will suggest a model that is in your price range or a little lower. Just not sure, I hate listening to these things at best buy because the room is so large compared to my room.

The Polk Surroundbar 6000 is going to be a better bargain at around $400

The LG soundbar at Best Buy is pretty awesome.. i love mine and it was very affordable ($300) and the wireless subwoofer is badass. Very cool features that come on that one

Definitive Technologies SSA50 is what I have along with a Polk powered 12 in sub and they sound incredible. That soundbar puts out serious bass at bass levels higher than the crossover is set. ITs expensive ($1000), but it sounds as if you have 5 speakers around the room since it does some type of aural spatial thing with the mids.
