Question

Where did all the home theatre surround sound systems go?

Jan 6, 2017 3:06PM PST

It seems like both LG and Samsung haven't released a new pure home theatre set up in the past 2 years with nothing at CES 2017. It's all sound bars now.

Can sound bars actually go toe to toe with rear speakers now in a 5.1 setup? Or have consumers just gotten over wires and it's a convenience thing.

Right now I have a 2013 Samsung home theatre and love it but was looking out for a 2017 model that also played UHD 4k bluray to match a new 4k TV purchase... looks like i'm out of luck.
