Originally tested at £150 and now available for less then £100, it's a fine budget option with a punchy and rich sound.

Yamaha has proved time and again that it knows how to build a decent soundbar. Take the Award-winning YAS-207. It creates a hugely effective virtual surround sound experience which defies the bar's physical proportions.

Add 4K HDR support and Bluetooth streaming and you've got a convincing, convenient package, now available with a tidy discount.
- Expansive, immersive sound
- Clear dialogue
- Atmos speakers work well
The SK10Y won't be for everyone because if its sheer size, but for owners of 55in TVs and above it could be a fine solution. It's a relatively slender design that squeezes in a 5.1.2 speaker set-up which includes a pair or angled, upfiring drivers to help deliver a convincing Dolby Atmos experience. The soundbar's audio has been tuned with the help of British hi-fi stalwart Meridian, and delivers a clear, clean and punchy sound. The Sony HT-ST5000 listed below might be our favourite at the money, this discounted LG is worth investigating.
- Excellent integration
- Fine detail
- Suports Dolby Atmos
If you're looking for a fuss-free way to get Dolby Atmos into your home, this is the best we've seen so far. The Sony is fantastic - pairing a real sense of height with sophisticated sound quality. It's easy to set up, use and comes with a useful selection of 4K HDR-compatible HDMI inputs, Bluetooth connectivity and streaming support for Spotify and Tidal among others.
In the grand scheme of soundbars, this Sony might not be the cheapest, but it now boasts a big discount which should add to the appeal. We've no hesitation in recommending the HT-ST5000.
