Best Soundbar Deals for Prime Day
No 4K TV is complete without a reliable soundbar. As such, Amazon has been discounting them alongside televisions since the first iteration of its online shopping bonanza back in 2015. And guess what? Amazon Prime Day 2019 is no different.
In terms of savings, everything from mainstream soundbars from the likes of Samsung and Sennheiser to more niche offerings from brands like Polk Audio and Yamaha have been discounted by as much as 64% — and that’s nothing to scoff at.
How to Choose a Soundbar
We’ve long said the secret to bagging an unmissable deal on Prime Day is planning ahead, but with the event now in full swing, that’s no longer an option, so we’ll need to turn to our second-best piece of advice: Play it simple for the best results.
Soundbars are more complicated than they seem, with each bundling a different set of features — some rely on optical cables, which limits the different audio formats you can take advantage of, while others can be hooked up using a standard HDMI.
It’s worth noting that the all-too-common HDMI interface supports more audio formats than optical — including Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS:X — which effectively means you’ll get higher quality sound that’s a lot more immersive.
With that in mind, we recommend ensuring the soundbar you’re adding to your cart has an HDMI input. If you’re only just starting to spruce up your entertainment setup, you might also benefit from one that comes with a subwoofer in the box.
Those in the market for something a little different, like a new iPad or maybe even a smartwatch, ought to check out our list of the best Amazon Prime Day sales. We’ll be updating it from now right through the end of Prime Day, so it’s worth a bookmark.
