How to choose a soundbar
There’s no shortage of soundbar deals available. In fact, the problem today, if there is one when it comes to your shopping experience, is just how to choose the right one for you. But fear not, Digital Trends has your back. We’ve compiled our list of best soundbars for 2020, which you can use to help you select the very best kind to buy. Overall, when it comes to bang for your buck, we like the Sonos Arc, which combines the very best of the legendary Sonos functionality and that truly untouchable Dolby Atmos sound. We love how totally easy it is to set up and to use, right out of the box. The sound quality is frankly great and it seamlessly incorporates itself into your Sonos configuration. And on top of all this, not only does the Arc apply up-firing drivers to re-create Dolby Atmos sound, it can be combined with other Sonos speakers to create a full 5.1.2 surround-sound configuration.
But because not everyone is as besotted with Sonos as we are, we need to explore some other options. Want some versatility, not just for your soundbar but for your dollar? Look no further than the Yamaha YAS-209. It’s inexpensive; it has voice control options (it has Alexa built-in); it connects to everything; what else do you want? Now, if you’re open to a single-speaker soundbar (and you should be), and you can afford to spend a lot more there’s the Sennheiser Ambeo; its acorn-to-oak Ambeo technology creates a magnificent swell of Atmos sound. Additionally, it offers three HDMI inputs bearing the latest in eARC technology, which support all major HDR formats. If your concern is less sound for visual entertainment and more music, we heartily recommend the Bose Soundbar 700; it provides incredible depth to your favorite music and can compete with Sonos. Finally, if your concern is something that will mix seamlessly with your virtual assistants, like Alexa and Google, look to the Bose Smart Soundbar 300; what it lacks in power, it makes up for with convenience.
How much should you spend on a soundbar?
Soundbars are generally a more affordable alternative to fancy speaker systems. Still, there is a range of prices available depending on what features you want and how discerning you are when it comes to audio quality. For a cheap soundbar, for example, to use in a kitchen or to simply improve the sound from a TV you use occasionally, you can find plenty of options in the $100 to $200 range, with some available even cheaper than that. But if you want a fantastic audio experience for a home theater system, you could spend up to $500 or more for a high-end soundbar.
Are any soundbar deals too good to be true?
When you’re browsing online, you might be tempted to quickly grab the cheapest soundbar deal you can find. But you should be careful when shopping Cyber Week sales. You’ll want to do some research to ensure you’re buying a good quality product from a reputable retailer, in order to make sure you’ll be happy with your soundbar once it arrives.
That’s why we only recommend deals from well-known retailers who you can trust to send you a good quality product. Some retailers will try to rush you into a decision with techniques like ticking countdown clocks on their websites, but don’t let these gimmicks push you into making a decision before you’re ready. Take your time, check out your options, and feel good about the product you decide to buy.
