High end atmos soundbar or entry level 5.1 speakers with amp ?

    hi, i'm planning to kit out a small room with a large tv and decent sound system, mostly for watching movies.

    For the sound system, I'm undecided on whether to go for an entry level 5.1 system (Q-Acoustics 3010i 5.1 with av receiver) or spend roughly the same on a large soundbar (Samsung HW990B - 11.1.4 with 8 inch subwoofer).

    I've never tried an atmos soundbar, but i'm sceptical that such small speakers, no matter how many they cram into a bar, will give a full bodied rich spacious sound with clear voices.

    Any opinions on premium atmos soundbar vs entry level separates system?
