Following up on Steve's receiver question:

[forums.macresource.com]

My near 15 y.o. Samsun HTIB is starting to show some wear and tear. The BluRay no longer works, it has no HDMI/ARC in. One of the Optical In no longer works, the connector appears to be physically broken.

And I'd like to upgrade to a DolbyAtmos soundbar.

BUT...

I would need one with at least 2 aux/rca/analog inputs, one for a Record Player/PreAmp and one for an external radio tuner, since I still listen to my local college station pretty much all day (Non NFL) Sundays.
I suppose I could hook both up to one using an RCA Y adapter. Any pros/cons on that?

I listened to Polk soundbar and a Samsung and was pretty impressed.

Could you stream your radio station online and then use AirPlay or Bluetooth to get to the soundbar?

I have, but the sound quality drop is noticeable when streaming online.
