The ATS-1080 has hdmi 4k, stereo, optical and bluetooth input. The stereo sound stage is not bad in compare with book self speakers in the same price range, watching movie with surround sound is quite engaging too.

Looks like they got rid of the inpost option. Used to be free to ship to those.

Is there anything else comparable at this price point?

fyi. doesn't work with netflix if you're using the shield. i think its because netflix output is DD+ and this only supports DD
i had lots of problems trying to use ARC/CEC with this. sounds great though

Buy these Edifiers instead for $62, way better performance and bass plus 2yrs replaceable Warranty

standalone bookshelf speakers are not the same as a soundbar. People usually choose a soundbar for different reasons then the Edifiers, I think they pretty much attract two different crowds due to placement of either or.

Virtual surround sound is a gimmic ...
I disagree. Notable difference for your average person, i'd say... At least for this average person.
Can you spare some cutter, me brother?

How well would it work on a computer for gaming?
I use a soundbar for my computer, with a lot of gaming. I really like it.

A soundbar will work just fine for gaming, but you are probably not getting the most out of it either. A lot of soundbars are engineered with the assumption it is going to be used at a certain distance (say a tv to a couch). The sound is dispersed (especially surround sound) based on that assumption and is most realistic towards a certain sweet spot (5-7 feet away for example). Too far and too close it will sound just fine, but not optimum.

I tried this myself with my Vizio soundbar, it worked fine enough I thought but when I got some Logitech Z623s I moved it to a bedroom tv and noticed a large difference in how much the sound enveloped me. More wider, more atmospheric.

probably not but I got it for $25 from the local buy and sell, and it replaced my aging speaker system that had wires everywhere.. Good enough for me!

I have the 2.1 Vizio soundbar from Costco - $129

https://www.costco.ca/VIZIO-SB362An-F6- ... 55923.html

Sounds awesome, but will not pair to an Apple TV via Bluetooth. I use optical, from an HDMI-SPDIF splitter between it and the Apple TV and projector. Works great. I like the look of the Edifier bookshelf speakers, but no optical input is a downer.
