I just bought a Roku soundbar + subwoofer and I'm planning on getting the two wireless rear speakers as well. I've tried to research my question but can't find a hard yes or no answer.
So I've seen a lot of people online asking about having the whole home theater set (Soundbar, Sub, Rear Speakers) and discussing 5.1 support but all of them seemed to have a receiver with their set. I don't have a receiver, I just have a TCL 6 Series, the soundbar, and the sub so far.
But my question is, do I absolutely need a receiver in order for the sound to be considered "real" 5.1? If I just get the wireless rears, will the 5.1 automatically be set up within the soundbar?
