How does this compare to Monitor Audio ASB-2? I am mainly listening to music with an occasional movie once a week or two... I really want to avoid wires so a regular speaker system is a no go for me :)

I haven't reviewed or demoed the Monitor so I can't assess its sound quality. Perhaps a reader who has tried it would like to say something? At a glance, it does cost several hundred more, and has AirPlay, whereas the Sony has only Bluetooth. Amazon is currently selling the Sony for $798. I'd call that a good deal for a high-end (in relative terms) soundbar.
