I have a smart TV (yeah, smarter than me) in the basement hooked up to Netflix youtube etc Trouble is every time the blower motor on the furnace runs, I punch the tv volume up to max (100) and still struggle to hear what is going on. So, a soundbar is the way to go. no? Good. Started looking at them today and there are many different options.....from $35 on up. I expect it to sound good but most of all, I need it to be easy to connect to TV and start up. Am I correct in understanding that I will need to purchase some sort of cables to connect the soundbar to the TV? I don't think I'll pay more than $100 as this TV is only used intermittently during the snow months here. Please advise! Thanks!
