    Sound bar with no receiver possible?

    Hello all. I appreciate you looking at my post. I am thinking about buying a tv to put over the fireplace. I would like to connect it to a sound bar. Is there one where I would not need a reciver? I want a clean look of a mounted TV and a soundbar on the mantle. I don't want a receiver to be seen.

    Thanks for any help you could provide!

    First off, welcome to HomeTheaterEquipment.com. Good to have you.

    Actually, most of them don't need a receiver. The ones I am talking about have amps and some type of decoder, usually Dolby, built in. The ones that don't have the amps and processor are called passive.

    HomeTheaterRevew.com has a lot of reviews. Soundbar review, Soundbar reviews, Top soundbars, Best Soundbars, Sound bar review

    I don't have much experience with them but hopefully the reviews will help.
