We are looking at putting new sleeker furniture in the living room, which includes a much longer tv unit. i want to get rid of the floor standing front speakers and clunky center speaker.

the plan was to get a soundbar for the front and some satelites for the back, however, all the soundbars i can see are active 2.1s with few hdmi inputs. i like the amp i have now and it is set up with all my inputs etc.

is there such thing as a passive soundbar. basically 3 speakers in a sleek soundbar style case?

Yes there is. Paradigm have one called the Cinema Trio. I assume other brands have them too. I've had one for about a year or so, but haven't gotten around to installing it in my living room. Still in its box.

Lol.. Not so important anymore now that I have a dedicated HT room.

You might get better bang for your buck with in wall speakers?
