The Bose is very impressive
Get it when it’s on sale
I like the HK Enchant 1300 too

Currently using the Sony HT-ST5000 soundbar and quite happy with it for its minimalist design and sound for both movies and music.
Good compatibility with most sound format including ATMOS and paired seamlessly with my Sony Bravia 65" X950G.

Panasonic's recent launch of Atmos/dts-X 3.1ch soundbars in UK and Australia are truly 3.1ch soundbars that do Virtual Atmos/dts-X processing without connectivity for wireless surround channels!

If you're looking for a soundbar to deliver a home theater experience without the need of multiple speakers and cabling, the Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar could be the option you're looking for.

13 drivers to deliver a 5.1.4 experience in one housing, and yes with Dolby Atmos, 4K video-passthrough and eARC to name a few of today's requirements and also being a What Hi-Fi? 5 stars award winner.

But how does it perform? I do believe the end result is an engaging movie experience with realistic surround sounds.
The Ambeo mode is where the soundbar shines even further, brings the cinematic experience at the comfort of your home and even without an external subwoofer you still have your low end.
Of course the option is there if you wish to connect a sub for all the bass!

Sonos finally in atmos.

https://www.theverge.com/2020/5/6/21248430/sonos-arc-dolby-atmos-soundbar-announced-features-price-date
Anyone pre-order the Sonos ARC? The price is $1499 and is cheaper than Sennheiser AMBEO($3890) & Creative X-Fi Sonic Carrier ($5999).

Thinking of getting the SONOS ARC, but there’s only 1 eArc input, my TV Sony KD-55x8500c which only support Arc and using UBP x700 uhd player. Wonder would it support Atmos??

1. TV need to support Atmos. The 8500c i think is a 2018 model. Not sure whether this model received the Atmos update. If u have Netflix on it, maybe do a search for atmos, click on the movie and if you see a Atmos logo, then tv should support. I used to own a X700 and I remember the Netflix app on it don't support Atmos, in case u are thinking of using that.

2. Even if the TV support Atmos, it will be lossy (DD+).

So I guess to be 100% sure, better get a Atmos soundbar that has hdmi inputs, then u can connect the X700 or other devices into it.

Hope it helps.
