Is the one you ordered HDM 2.1? Why did you choose Lyngdorf ?
They emailed me that they may have an upgrade to 2.1.
Mostly I got it because:
- It looks good (WAF stuff… but I did not even consider to ask her if I should)
- It does room correction
- I had no the idea what to get as this is my first foray into HT
- I need to mate a TV with bad sound with an existing 2.1
- I am hoping that using a good center channel will allow me sneak my speakers into the room so that the low WAF factor of the L/R speakers, can be offset by hearing the dialogue with the matching center channel.
But mostly I just liked the look of it, and I found a used one that saved me a bit coin.
As I am putting together a beginner system around a new LG 65” OLED, it seemed like it should be enough. (we just usually stream Netflix or similar and a small Intel NUC is the player… Not a big BlueRay machine.)
So I am no expert, and I just am hoping that it may also stream the music and possibly be OK as a preamp. But if not then I’ll run into the preamp so regular music is 2.1 and 5.2.x is using the L/R of the existing 2.1 stereo.
The fact the Mrs did not like the screatchy sound of a few sound bars that we heard gives me hope for my plan.
Last month she said, “we are getting a new TV”, and selected a 55”. I said, “don’t waste our time, just get a 65” or it will be thrown out (or become too small) in a year or two.”
And then said she didn’t want to pay that much for a TV… anyhow my CC seemed to do the trick and it seems like a good size. Just the dialogue sound is < “not too great”.
I certainly have no evidence that shows I know what I am doing with HT, nor with anything bigger than 2.1 … so this is all truely opinion stuff, and little in the way of provable facts. Basically I just like the looks of it more than a Sonos bar..
