My Bose AV48 9.1 speaker surround has given up the ghost after a solid service - it turns on but won't boot up completely which is a shame as it wasn't cheap and sounds very good! 

I'm going to have to replace it and think a soundbar with additional sub/wireless rears might be a better option nowadays. Anyone have any experience or recommendations please?

If you've already got some Sonos stuff, the Sonos Playbar (with additional Play 1s and the sub) can be worth it. However, I wouldn't buy them all at once - the total price would be eye watering!

Otherwise, I think that Yamaha are generally regarded as the best soundbar manufacturer. I can dig out some recommended model numbers, if you'd like.

9.1? I thought I had a lot at 5.1. 
I need to get out more. 

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Actually, I take it back regarding Yamaha. I’ve just had a look at the Which review scores and no Yamaha soundbar scores particularly well. The Sonos ones do okay though.

I'll echo what @Bravo73 says about the Yamaha soundbar, I bought a Yamaha MusicCast Bar 400 and it's spectacularly shit. The sub is good and the MusicCast 20 wireless speakers (for rear sound) are okay, but the soundbar is a major disappointment coming from a 5.1 AV setup (my previous AV amp slowly degraded and all digital inputs failed). What was so bad with the soundbar? The sound stage was so narrow, muffled and no real volume to it at all. I'm putting up with it until I get another AV amp later.
