Roku is releasing a Smart Soundbar for $180 for this fall

Seems to be product equivalent of Fire TV soundbar for $240 also being released in November

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...d_i=8521791011

TVs are getting ultra cheap, but their sound seems to suck. Any thoughts on which way to go?

I would like a Roku TV with ethernet port like they have on Roku Ultra streaming device. I like the option of using a wire, because my home (90 years old) has a lot of plaster, concrete and steel.

I assume however, that if the speakers sound excellent, the soundbar will also sound excellent.

Wireless worked well in my previous home built in '32. From the basement to the 2nd floor.
Friend just bought a Roku TV for $180 at Best buy. 42".

Well my home was built in '29. I understand it is the metallic mesh in the plaster walls. But there is also a lot of I-beams in this home, and metallic mesh that holds up a concrete courtyard in the middle of the house.

I only have two wireless devices, and I don't expect them to work in the entire home. The other six devices are all wired including an old Roku.

The prices on the Roku TV are very low, and I like the idea of eliminating all the wires, but I am just afraid it won't work.
