Why Buy:

  • Affordable entry into the world of soundbars
  • Compact and easy to fit into a small space
  • Supports Dolby Audio
  • Supports Bluetooth for streaming from your phone as well

This 2.0 soundbar is the ideal affordable partner for your TV. In our Vizio V-Series’ 2.1 soundbar review sibling, we praised its excellent price point, variety of EQ adjustments, and impressive sound quality for the price. If you’re after a simple, easy-to-use upgrade to your TV audio that won’t break the bank, this is the option for you. Vizio is known for its value for money, and this soundbar is no exception. You’ll find a compact soundbar that’s easy to fit into a small space, with two speakers that offer Dolby Audio and DTS Digital Surround to fill a room in all directions, making your sound more immersive — which is especially great for watching movies.

The soundbar has plenty of connectivity options as well, supporting HDMI and ARC inputs as well as dedicated 3.5 aux and Bluetooth as well. The Bluetooth is especially handy as it makes it easy to wirelessly connect to the soundbar from your phone as well as your TV, so you can use the soundbar to listen to music when you’re not watching the TV. It’s a great choice for spaces like kitchens or small studio apartments where you want your TV to pull double duty as a stereo system as well. Finally, you can control the soundbar from a distance with either the included remote or with your voice through voice assistants like Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant.

TCL Alto R1 Roku TV-Ready Wireless Soundbar — $100, was $180

Why Buy:

  • One power cable, that’s it
  • Perfect for Roku TVs
  • Supports Bluetooth for streaming from your phone as well

The idea behind the TCL Alto R1 is total simplicity. From the setup (which only requires that you plug the R1 into power) to the way you control its settings (you use your existing TV remote), it’s hard to imagine an easier way to get much better sound from your TV.

The R1 is no powerhouse, but it does have very good two-channel stereo sound, which is really all you need for smaller rooms. The caveat is that the R1 only works with TVs that have the Roku software built-in (so-called Roku TVs). They don’t have to be built by TCL — any Roku TV will do just fine — but it does have to be a Roku TV.

The connection is entirely wireless, using TCL’s proprietary Wi-Fi technology. Amazingly, there are no audio sync problems, and you can get the soundbar to automatically enhance dialogue and lower the volume for commercials. Not bad, especially at this incredibly low price.

LG 2.1 Channel 300W Soundbar with Subwoofer — $130, was $280

Why Buy:

  • Includes subwoofer for more powerful bass
  • Dolby Digital decoder
  • Supports Bluetooth for music streaming from your phone
  • Comes with bracket for wall mounting

If you’re willing to spend a little more on a soundbar, one noticeable upgrade will be to get a soundbar that comes with a subwoofer, like this LG 2.1 soundbar. The separate subwoofer provides more power in the lower frequencies, giving additional punch to the bass. That’s not only good for listening to certain genres of music, like hip hop or EDM, but it’s also great for action movies where the amped-up bass adds excitement to bangs and booms. This subwoofer is wireless too, meaning you can place it wherever you need to in the room for maximum sound without adding messy cables everywhere.

As well as the subwoofer, you’ll get a two-speaker soundbar, each speaker of which is rated at 50W, with connectivity for HDMI and USB as well as wireless options. You can use Bluetooth to easily connect your phone or another device to the soundbar and play music, meaning it acts as a speaker as well as a boost for your TV. And if you’d like a sleek look, you can hand the soundbar on your wall with the included bracket.

Klipsch Cinema 400 Sound Bar + 8-Inch Wireless Subwoofer — $249, was $329

Why Buy:

  • Comes with subwoofer for powerful bass
  • 5.1 for virtual surround sound
  • Dialogue enhancement for clearer TV audio
  • Easy setup with single cable and single remote

If you’re after powerful, cinematic sound with easy setup and no fuss, then the Klipsch Cinema 400 soundbar might be just what you’re looking for. For those who want a high-quality sound experience but don’t want to be messing around with cables and complicated setup, then this is both simple to use and offers great sound. It needs just one HDMI cable to link up the soundbar, then use the included remote to control both the soundbar and the wireless subwoofer. Oh, did we mention the subwoofer? It comes with a chunky, powerful sub as well as the soundbar to give you that booming bass experience which is great for exciting, immersive movie watching.

The Klipsch Cinema soundbar has useful software and hardware to project sound out through your entire room, making it ideal for a larger space like a big living room. And it has 5.1 decoding to give that virtual surround sound that will make you feel like you’re at the cinema. But it’s not all big and booming, as there are also precision options like dialogue enhancement which will help dialogue sound better and be easier to understand. That’s all wrapped up in a stylish, attractive package made with materials like real wood for a classy finish.

Why Buy:

  • Extremely high-quality sound
  • Comes with powerful subwoofer
  • Creates immersive surround sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
  • Even better sound when paired with select Samsung TVs

If you want a TV speaker that fills the room and creates a virtual surround sound experience, one of Samsung’s new soundbars with Dolby Atmos could be for you. This HW-Q600A model is a 3.1.2 system with both a soundbar and a subwoofer, and the combined 360 watts deliver a huge improvement over the speakers that are built into your TV. The subwoofer is wireless, too, making it easy to place where you need it without worrying about wires. In addition to the Dolby Atmos, it supports DTS:X and has upward-firing height drivers to help project sound throughout even a large space, so this could be the best choice for a home theater room.

It includes an HDMI input, which can pass through 4K video in HDR10+, plus there’s Bluetooth support, so you can quickly and easily pair the soundbar with your phone or other devices to play music as well. If you have a compatible Samsung TV, you can take advantage of the Q-Symphony feature, which lets the soundbar take over the TV’s built-in speakers for greater clarity, especially for on-screen dialog.

Why Buy:

  • Dedicated, wireless surround speakers
  • Powerful wireless subwoofer
  • Creates immersive surround sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
  • Amazon Alexa built-in

To get the most out of Dolby Atmos or DTS:X, you need a set of dedicated up-firing drivers in order to bounce sound off the ceiling and back to your listening position. This Samsung HW-Q850A soundbar can do that and much more. It’s packed with 45o watts of total power, and can stream your favorite music over Wi-Fi when using the Samsung mobile app, or via Bluetooth from any device.

The HDMI input means you won’t need to sacrifice one of your TV’s few HDMI ports, and its HDMI eARC compatibility ensures that you’ll be future-proofed for years to come, even if your current TV doesn’t have this feature. Meanwhile, automatic systems take care of making dialog more intelligible, and its Game Pro mode provides perfectly synced sound with all of the on-screen gaming action.

The subwoofer and rear speakers are wireless, too, which means no unsightly cords marring the look of your home theater system.

It also offers smart features like adaptive sound, with the sound output optimized for your room and the content being played, and there’s wireless connectivity through both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth so you can connect to the system with your phone or another device, as well as plug it into your TV. Overall, this package offers 3D sound that is perfect for enjoying movies and sports and feeling like you’re right in the center of the action.
