Want a cinematic experience from the comfort of your couch? Why, of course you do! Whether it's the latest Hollywood blockbuster or a binge-worthy Netflix series, a decent soundbar will improve your viewing immeasurably and (just as importantly) it'll do so simply and cheaply – especially with these Black Friday deals and the Cyber Monday and holiday sales imminent.
Soundbars and soundbases are an easy and space-efficient way of boosting your TV's sound performance without cluttering your lounge with multiple speakers and a chunky AV amplifier. Just put a soundbar in front of your TV (or below it if you're wall-mounting) and you're good to go!
Here's our pick of the best early Black Friday deals from online retailers on a number of sound-boosting soundbar solutions. Oh, and don't forget, we've also got a dedicated Best soundbars buying guide, and a special feature which will show you how to choose and set up a soundbar, so there'll be no issues when it arrives.

Sonos Beam (white)
$399 $299 at Crutchfield
One of the best performance-per-pound products Sonos has produced, the Beam is a blinding little soundbar that is musically capable of doubling up as your go-to wireless speaker. And the white model is now $46.48 less than our 'tested at' price. View Deal
LG SN5Y 2.1 ch. soundbar DTS Virtual:X
$280 $157 at Amazon
A soundbar and subwoofer combo with Bluetooth and optical connectivity plus hi-res audio (24bit / 96kHz). And with a stonking $103 off the asking price (yes, really, we checked!) it's a downright outrageous bargain. View Deal

With built-in Amazon Alexa and both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections for music streaming, this Bose soundbar and subwoofer combo is a multi-media mogul. There's proprietary audio room calibration, HDMI ARC and coming soon is AirPlay 2.View Deal
Yamaha YSP-5600 MusicCast
$1700 $1600 at Crutchfield
We're big fans of this brilliant Yamaha soundbar. It's not cheap, but it does deliver exciting and impressive overhead surround sound and plenty of great features. This handy $100 saving should soften the blow. View Deal
$699 $599 at WWStereo
Yes, it's recently been superseded by the brand new Sonos Arc, but we loved this five-star 'bar under review, praising its "wide, deep, detailed and dynamic soundstage". There's no HDMI connection, but if that doesn't bother you, this is a great little deal. View Deal
$899 $700 at Best Buy
This is the more expensive of Sony's two 3.1-channel soundbar systems. Dolby Atmos provides virtual surround sound, while there's Bluetooth and wi-fi for wireless music entertainment. Oh, and did we mention the $200 Black Friday discount? View Deal
$599 $400 at Best Buy
The cheaper option from Sony still has a great $200 saving. With a wireless sub and Dolby Atmos on board, it still packs plenty of features for its new ultra-low price, too. View Deal
