Any decent soundbars these days? I have a 5.1 system but live in an apartment so don't really get to use it as it should. I'm also moving into a new place where rear speakers might not really fit with the layout, so was thinking about a soundbar or just using the front three speakers alone. I do have a receiver that is Atmos capable, and looks like there are Soundbars that are as well but super expensive. I honestly don't watch much TV or movies anymore and for gaming for anything that needs immersion I just used a headset.
For the price this is nice.

Price range?
Maybe$300-400 range although maybe not worth it at that price. I've never really spent much on speakers. Current speakers were from a Denon/Boston Acoustics HTIB and was maybe around $600 total. I've since upgraded the receiver for 4K HDR and the subwoofer since the original went bad.

I purchased a Sonos beam soundbar for the bedroom for $329. It's the best stand alone soundbar I have found in that price range. You don't really need a sub with it.
