Personally I would return this setup
p and go focal dome flax with a receiver and a rear amplifier with a wireless transmitter
This sony st is never going to sound great
i design theaters
@audiotroy , I have this HT-A9+sub in my bedroom. Spouse and I use it to watch tv/listen to music.
Just curious...Have you heard it set up correctly? Or are you bashing it without hearing it? You could be quite surprised if you heard it (keeping expectations realistic, of course)
IME, it is very non-intrusive and sounds quite good in a room with strict WAF requirements for non-intrusive gear....sounds a whole lot better than lousy soundbars...Sony's 360 SSM is a breakthrough for above mentioned purpose.
I also have at least one cost no object category hifi rig and a no compromise multichannel rig... Pretty sure i have a point of reference...
