Best sound bar for dialogue?

I have a Samsung 65" F8500 and I cannot understand what people say when I am watching a movie or streaming from Netflix, etc. I end up using the closed captions a lot of the time. Can someone please recommend a sound bar that is excellant for dialogue? Thanks

You would actually do better with standard fronts/center

That way you can adjust the center channel volume appropriate where most of the dialogue is. Sound bars don't usually excel in this arena.

Never heard of such a thing.

However there are claims that setting audio to Stereo can help.
