Hi, Arin with Pinnacle here. The purpose of a SOUNDBAR, including ours is to dramatically improve the sound quality from todays super thin and "ACOUSTICALLY CHALLENGED" TV's. Todays TV's are not designed nor do they deliver any serious high fidelity sound. The SOUNDBAR category of product, including ours are designed to replace and improve upon the lost sound from the new TV's, depending on the quality of the SOUNDBAR. However, they are not designed for loud music playing at parties. For normal TV or music watching it adds a dimension of sound that has been eliminated due to the ultra thin TV format. If your plans include party volume music, the better choice is a home theater system, which by design is for both movies, music and in our case, designed for more aggressive listening when needed So, we suggest MB 9500+ or MB 11500+
To recap, dramatic TV sound improvement, go with SOUNDBAR, even better go with SOUNDBAR+SUBWOOFER FRONTROWSYS8210),
For high performance caliber of music and movies with strong volume capability would require a Home Theater system such as MB9500+ or MB11500+.
SFITTWR 1050, SFITCTR 350 and PSSUB 225 would deliver the best acoustic performance for music especially at louder volumes. So it all depends on what your uses are.
I hope this helps
