Cyber Monday won't last forever, so if you're still holding off on snapping this top-notch Dolby Atmos soundbar up, you might want to pull the trigger and complete your purchase. It's remained one of the best soundbar deals this Cyber Monday, not because its the cheapest, but because its a genuinely excellent deal on a five-star soundbar. 

Often overshadowed by the Sonos Arc and Sony HT-A7000, the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar Plus is a brilliant Dolby Atmos soundbar that truly impressed during our initial review just under a year ago.

The one gripe I had at the time was that its price point didn't do much to help its position against the competition at the time, which has since become more of an issue now that Sony and Sonos are subject to more frequent price cuts.

However, the Sennheiser might be in for a new lease on life this Black Friday, as it's down to £899 at Sevenoaks (and Richer Sounds). That makes it a fair bit cheaper than the Sony right now, making it a worthy five-star alternative. In the US? You can also save $500 on this speaker at Crutchfield or Amazon.

Sennheiser's Ambeo Plus impresses with a wide, spacious sound field, excellent musical ability, and a fine spread of useful features and connectivity options. HDMI inputs are included as are a number of different steaming options, from Bluetooth to Spotify Connect. The Ambeo Plus sits among the best Dolby Atmos soundbars at this level. 

At £899, the Sennheiser has had a whopping £400 lopped off its usual asking price, making this one killer Black Friday deal. Sony's equivalent soundbar is £100 more at £999, and while it is an Award-winner, the Sennheiser is an equally adept five-star soundbar.

So what do you get with the Ambeo Soundbar Plus? Inside this svelt and stylish soundbar are seven full-range aluminium drivers and a pair of dedicated woofers, resulting in nine total speaker units. Two of these drivers are upward firing to provide the overhead Dolby Atmos sound, and it certainly shows how spacious the Ambeo sounds. In our initial test, the Soundbar Plus impressed us with its dramatic height and scale of sound, giving it true cinematic appeal. 

It's also talented musically, as vocals are given a welcome touch of sparkle and depth, and orchestral movie scores are presented with the necessary grand scale that we look out for. Overall, the Sennheiser delivers a warm, punchy and big-scale sound, which means it can go toe-to-toe with its rivals comfortably. 

The Ambeo Plus is also well stocked in the feature department, with an automatic calibration setup that tailors the sound to your room. This is all controlled through the Sennheiser Smart Control app, which you can also use to stream music through, as well as adjust volume and select sound presets. There are also two HDMI passthrough connections, which is initially good news, although these are only HDMI 2.0 sockets, meaning no ALLM or VRR - sorry gamers. 

So, if you're in the market for a Dolby Atmos soundbar this Black Friday, should you buy the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar Plus? I certainly think so, especially considering that it spends most of the year in the shadow of its competitors. This is easily one of the best soundbar deals we've seen during this sale period, although we're keeping our eyes peeled for an equivalent Sony deal.
