Play 5's VS Sound Bar?

In general I'm suspicious of generic sound bar's appropriateness for "music". Interests are: Music is #1, home theater #2. How 'bout 2 Play 5's, but may also need a Play 3 for center?? Just trying to ensure music is good, but, naturally, want ability for theater atmosphere. As an aside, I currently have 4 Play 1's.

My advice is:-

Buy the Playbar and Sub and either use 2 of your Play 1s as rear surrounds or buy 2 more. Once set up ensure the setting is "Full" - A pair of Play 1 s with the Sub are exceptional.

No doubt a pair of Play 5 would also be exceptional for music BUT they are significant overkill for surrounds. Also no such thing as a Play 3 (or 1 or 5) as a Centre - that cannot be done.

Hope this helps
Thank you for your input--greatly appreciated. Like your explicit input on 'no such thing as.. etc.' Thanks
