New Onyko 707 with Polk Surroundbar
Has anyone tried the either the original Surroundbar or the 50" Surroundbar with one of the newer receivers (i.e. Onyko 707) that have front wide Left/Right and/or front high left/right (I guess I mean 9/1 or 11/1 receivers).
The reason being I have three existing pairs of Polk speakers, two that could be utilized for surround left/right and surround back left/right, so perhaps I could utilize the surroundbar surround speaker connections for my front wide left/right instead of surround left/right?
I will use other pair of Polks I have for the front high left/right to complement the Surroundbar.
Anyone tried this, or would this screw up the SDA tech?
CSR, can you provide some answers?
We have a discussion on SB at digtalhome.ca, could you provide an answer if a different DVD player con be hooked-up to this product or if Polk has proprietary connectors for the DVD?
Most soundbar with built in amps will usually include a built in player and if you want to use the full capabilty of the new audio codecs, this is the route you should take otherwise, as 57 mentions your audio will simply be downgraded. I do not know about the other brands but when it comes to Polk, the Instant Home Theater provides you wireless subwoofer technology, I am not sure if the SB 360 provides for the LFE but otherwise, your solution would be to go with an external AVR to power your SB and control your subwoofer as this should allow you to use your old player with some effciency.
According to this short review http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...oundBar+360%BA
, the 360 doesn't need a sub.
No Subwoofer. No Rear Speakers. No Messy Wires.
. I wonder if you could plug in your own DVD player instead of the one that's supplied with their equipment. Check what is available with other brands and I would suggest you contact their CSR if the documents provided don't give you the full answer to your question(s)
