If you like a lot of tech for your money, you will appreciate this epic soundbar deal. It gets you the Sony HT-S40R for just £279 – a tasty 20 per cent discount on the £350 RRP.

You'll need to hurry, though. This deal is part of the 48-hour October Prime Day sale, so it won't be around much longer.

The Sony HT-S40R package includes a soundbar, two wireless rear speakers and a subwoofer for just £279. If you're after an affordable 5.1 system for movies and music, this could be a cheaper alternative to building a system.

Sony makes some of the best budget soundbars on the market right now, so the 5.1-channel HT-S40R looks to have plenty going for it.

The sleek system promises 600W of power, Bluetooth for music streaming, support for Dolby Digital audio (you don't get object-based Dolby Atmos, but that's understandable given the ultra-low price).

The subwoofer and soundbar share a single power connection and those with a Sony Bravia TV that supports "TV wireless connection" can beam audio between the TV and HT-S40R wirelessly. 

Sony provides four sound modes – Cinema, Music, Standard, and Auto. There are also Night modes, which aim to provide clear dialogue at low volume, so you don't disturb the rest of the household or the neighbours. Connections include HDMI ARC, a USB port, plus optical and analogue inputs.

We haven't tested the HT-S40R but, on paper, it offers a truckload of bang for your buck. If you're after an affordable 5.1 system for movies and music, £279 sounds like an absolute steal.
