Scott joins Leo to help Doug from Albuquerque, NM figure out what TV to buy. Scott says that the "spousal acceptance factor" is high on big flat screens, but not on speakers all over the house. So for Doug, a soundbar is probably best. As for the TV, Doug's living room is in a bright area, with plenty of windows, so Scott says an LED LCD TV is going to be the best option.
dolby at home
Tom heard about Dolby Atmos at Home coming to the Apple TV. Is there a sound bar that will support it? Leo says that Atmos at Home works by bouncing sound off the ceiling. This simulates speakers mounted from above. But a sound bar would only give him a hint of it. It won't really give him the same experience as an Atmos at Home Theater system. There is a listing of sound bars over at the Dolby site though, and Leo likes the Vizio.
