A few thoughts:
1. If you have not already done so, do an online search on the words "sound bar" (with a space between the words). There are several online reviews available looking at products currently on the market, done by people who have had a chance to evaluate several products at a time - as compared to most of us, who may have seen or heard at most one or two products.
2. There is a fair bit of subjectivity in the evaluation of speakers - what sounds good to me may not sound good to you. It is essential that you audition several products, and decide on what sounds best to you.
3. Be realistic about how much "better" your sound experience will be with use of a sound bar. These speaker systems work best in a relatively small room enclosed by four walls. In a large open-concept room - not so much.

I'll preface by stating that the bose price does reduce to 1349.99 when purchased with a sound bar. You can even beat the system by purchasing an entry level 15" dynex, or alternatively a TV that would suit other needs.
The Yamaha YSP2200 ( 10174493 ) retails 999.99. In my personal opinion, has a higher sound quality than the bose -- a more flat frequency, less embellished. Further, it also is capable of reproduce a 5.1 audio system by means of a directional mic and calibration.

I agree the Yamaha YSP2200 Sound Bar must be one of the best sounding bars on the market, probably because it has a separate subwoofer for the low bass sounds, so you get a real kick when watching action movies or gaming.
