I haven’t had a PS+ sub in a couple of years. Are any of the games on sale worth it? Their rows of three on the store front making navigating the sale of hundreds of games a huge pain in the ass.

I already have atmos and dts:x for my headphones.

I don't have headphones for atmos, does it actually sound good?  I have a wired system. 

 

For anyone looking for a soundbar with atmos, I'd recommend you check out the Sonos or the JBL Bar 9.1.  The JBL is far more cost effective since it's a soundbar upfiring speakers and rechargeable surround speakers that could also be plugged in with USB permanently plus the subwoofer all included.  With the Sonos you have to buy everything separately.

I got the LG SP8YA.  Not the shiniest sound bar, but sounds pretty good for what I need.  I can't test atmos until I get the tv as mine does not have eArc.

Make sure you download the Atmos app onto the Xbox.  It's got some demos on it that sound good.  I'm not sure just how good for a 3.1.2 system but you need the app for atmos regardless.  You have to update a bunch of settings on the Xbox as well.  Additionally, make sure you make note of the settings changes on your TV.

Just put in an order for the LG C1. It should be a nice upgrade from my Vizio M558-G1. I'll have it on the 21st!

Anyone have opinions on soundbars? I know most don't really support some features like 120hz or VRR. eArc should go around that issue, but from what I've read, there is a good chance there is a very bad delay in sound if you use atmos?


Look into the Sonos Arc. As far as I know, it’s the best sound bar available. You can also add their One SL wireless speakers as surround speakers. As far as I know, you just plug them in and connect them wirelessly and there is no need for an external amp to power them.

 

edit:
Fixed product spelling.  Auto correct changed Sonos to Sonia for some reason.

I haven’t liked any Ubisoft games. I won’t even play this when it’s free on game pass. I’m sure it’s like assassins creed with cars.
