Sony 3.1 Ch Hi-Res Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer and Dolby Atmos
A:AnswerSomeone may have already answered this, but in general when using a 5.1 set up with rear satellite speakers, the audio content coming from the rear is predominately for effects and "off screen" voices... the main voice channel and content comes from the center speaker on the soundbar. On the remote there is a button called "Voice" which has three levels of enhancement specifically for improved clarity or hard of hearing. I would suggest trying the settings on this first.
A:AnswerIf you do not have a 4k tv with an hdmi arc this would not be worth your money. You can’t get atmos sound without 4k content and with out hdmi arc you will not get the full effect as this bar acts as an av receiver as well
A:AnswerNo it will not impact performance. This Soundbar uses Vertical surround, instead of Dolby Atmos, the speaker actually arch the sounds to you instead of bouncing off the ceiling, and you can set the exact distance it is from your seating area to give you the best sound, also highly recommend the rear speakers. The setup is a breez you configure you room using an on tv setup that uses really simple pictures and diagrams, I absolutely love this Soundbar it’s amazing, if you own a Sony tv I would stick with the Soundbar, in my experience pairing like branded sound bars with TV always gives you way better performance, other wise the Samsung HW-N850 or HW-N950 save the money and get last years models, they are nearly identical to this years samsungs
