Is Playbar compatible with a BenQ W1070 projector?
I bought a BenQ projector (http://www.amazon.com/BenQ-W1070-Theater-Projector-Silver/dp/B00A2T6X0K) and now need a sound system. The room is rectangular, ~ 18-feet by 12-feet. Directv and blu-ray at one end; projector nearly at the other, throwing the picture onto third wall. I'd like the sound to emanate from beneath the picture but i don't want to rip apart the ceilings/walls to hide wires. so wireless is appealing. Is the playbar right for this situation? can it work with a projector? can it work with a projector and DirecTV and a blu ray player? Do i also need a receiver? any advice much appreciated. 🙂

Hi, we're sorry you feel this way. Is there anything we can do to help?
For the projector in question, you could do it by putting in an HDMI to optical converter in between your video sources and the projector. Something like this might work.
Of course, you also then have the problem of getting an optical cable wired from the back of the room to the front of the room where the Playbar is...unless you want the sounding coming from the back or something like that.
If you want a projector for video and higher quality sound, there are probably lots of different ways you can do it. I don't know that Sonos makes the most sense, but it depends on what you want, how knowledgeable the installer, whether you're building out the walls, all sorts of scenarios.
