    With limited HDMI inputs on the HT-A9, how would you go from an AVR with 8 HDMI inputs to the HT-A9? I do not see a way to do that. We currently have the 55" Bravia A90J with Marantz NR-1606 powering Klipsch Quintet, with Klipsch SW-350 sub, and using Sony SS-CSE Atmos add-on speakers. Our room is smaller with the TV and the corner and have to give up a dedicated home theater room with a 60" Pioneer Elite Plasma FD-151FD running an Elite AVR with NHT VT-2, and VS-2s for center and rears. We used separate NHT amps for the VT-2's subs. It looked and sounded great. Technology has progressed since but I still want great home theater sound and my current system feels lacking. Our ceilings are nine feet and I have the Sony SS-CSEs on stands right behind the Bravia with a five-foot distance to the ceiling. When running the level adjustments the sound is right behind the TV I do not hear anything bouncing but that might be test tone? So the big question is it worth going for the HT-A9 system to get superior sound? Your review suggests this might be the case but there is the HDMI port question as well. Thanks

    I wonder why your review of 7000 soundbar is dramatically bad comparing to other non sponsored reviews. Would be so kind and consider updated review late this year with SA-RS5 and the latest firmware upgrade to soundbar itself? I think you could may have preproduction device. Thank you. I am a big fan of your channel. Sincerely.

    great video, very helpful. I think the future is very much processing. it's a bit like how smartphone camera's have evolved to use AI to give stunning results from a seemingly underpowered system. for me, i think for the price sony is charging, they needed to include a dedicated centre channel speaker, as for less money you can pick up something like the Klipsch 5.1.4 for around $1200 which arguably will be better quality speakers and include the sub, then add another $600 for a 9ch AVR and you're still $700 cheaper than the sony system and you will get a dedicated centre channel. Is the sony worth the extra $700 for the processing and convenience of placement without having to run speaker cable to the rear speakers ?? well i guess that down to personal choice. I think i would accept the $700 price difference if the Sony came with a dedicated centre channel, but without it, the $700+ difference is a bit much

    I wonder how the Nakamichi Shockwave Ultra 9.2.4 compares? The Nakamichi has better specs and much better connectivity.

    I can get the Bose soundbar 700, sub 700 and surround speakers for 1800 Cad or the Sony system for $3000 is it worth the extra $1200?

    Ht a9 with sw5 sub sells for 2.7 times the price of hw q950a. Can you please advise if it is worth that premium.

    Edited Update in the Comments

    Just bought it and I'm underwhelmed.
    Volume is not great and bass with the sub is not great.
    I'd give it a 4 out of 10. Should have went with Sonos 😔

    Andrew I think processing power is key for driving software and data rates audio rates. The faster the processing the less likely it is to have audio sync issues.

    Lets also not forget that individuals may have an older TV with slower processing power.

    So device setups really is ideal to have similar internal processing components to work efficiently and in synergy if that makes sense.

    Loved the review.

    Regards
