Amazon's own annual sales event typically goes big on Prime Day headphones deals and Prime Day TV deals (check out those pages if you don't believe us), but this year it hasn't overlooked the increasingly popular Dolby Atmos soundbar.

In the last of the Amazon Prime Day sales, two budget TCL Dolby Atmos soundbars are currently reduced by up to 35 per cent. There are also Prime Day deals on more mid-ranging Dolby Atmos soundbars from Sony and Denon.

The 2.1-channel TCL TS8111 2.1 soundbar has dropped from £199 to just £129, while the 3.1-channel TCL TS9030 soundbar and subwoofer is now only £239, down from £349.

We haven't tested either of these TCL models, but if we had they would be among the cheapest we had tested. The Sony HT-G700 has proven that Dolby Atmos can be done well in a budget soundbar, however from models of such size, driver count and price, you shouldn't expect Atmos movie soundtrack effects to sound as if they're flying over your head – as they might from a premium Atmos soundbar or proper Atmos speaker system.

What you should reasonably get is a wider, and therefore more immersive, soundfield with – we'd hope, but cannot ourselves verify – an enhanced sense of height compared to a 'standard' soundbar. Naturally, we would also hope for decent clarity for delivering vocals and, especially from the TS9030, a prominent bass presence.

If you're looking for a compact soundbar on a budget, we might just say these Prime Day-discounted soundbars are worth a punt. Got a slightly bigger budget? Keep scrolling!
