When you watch TV, would you like to experience a more powerful cinematic sound? Why, of course, you would! Whether it's a dialog-heavy indie-flick, the latest Hollywood blockbuster or a binge-worthy Netflix series, a decent soundbar will improve your viewing immeasurably.
What's more, you don't have to drop thousands on a fancy, bespoke home theater set-up with 13 channels and more subwoofers than chairs to enjoy a powerful cinematic sound – you can do that with a soundbar, too. Soundbars won't usually break the bank either, especially with a deal.
Here's our pick of the best deals from online retailers on a selection of sound-boosting TV 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.
Black Friday is also well underway, with savings to be found for every size, shape and style of soundbar. So if you want an Atmos-equipped home cinema speaker or a simple soundbar to enhance dialogue - then we have you covered.

Sony SF100 soundbar
$128 $100 at Target (save $28)
If you're looking for a simple, constructive step up in sound from your TV's in-built speakers, Sony's SF150 offers a significant sonic enhancement for little outlay.

The Ray is Sonos' only non-Atmos soundbar. Instead, it focuses on delivering crisp stereo audio in a compact shell, opting to ditch HDMI eARC for optical in the process. It's a simple, yet efficient soundbar, and ideal for someone who just wants hassle-free improved TV sound.

Samsung Q700A Dolby Atmos soundbar
$698 $430 at Walmart (save $259)
We haven't tested this step-down model from the Q800A (above), but Dolby Atmos soundbars at this price don't come up very often. Like its big sibling, this is a 3.1.2 system with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support and the same excellent connectivity. The main bar is even the same size as the Q800A, but the sub is slightly smaller, indicating the low-end performance may not be as punchy. If you're not all about the bass though, this could be the perfect bargain.
Best soundbar deals $500 to $1000

Sennheiser Ambeo Max: was
$2500 now $1700 at Crutchfield (save $300)
