Hi guys,
Just got a new tv and my HTPC parts are on their way. Right now I have my gaming rig temporarily hooked up to my TV. One thing that is bothering me is the sound. The sound is GOOD, however, I am getting frustrated with the clarity of voices. I'm sure you have all experienced this before. Wall-rattling action scenes where you have to jump on the remote to turn it down, and whisper-quiet dialogue where you have to jack the volume way up to hear anything. I have improved things by messing with the EQ but it's still not ideal.

If I want to control everything through my harmony remote, I am guessing the best option would be a sound bar, correct?
What do people think?

I am not looking to spend much, and i share a wall with my neighbours so alot of bass is out of the question. Here are some options i came across:
