Best cheap soundbar deals live now: Sonos, Bose, JBL, more

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.

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 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.

The best budget soundbar deals live right now

Sonos Playbar $699 $599 (save $100) 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Yes, it's recently been superseded by the brand new Sonos Arc, but we loved this five-star 'bar under review, praising its "wide, deep, detailed and dynamic soundstage".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

Bose Soundbar 700 3.1 soundbar $1498 $1398 (save $100) at WWStereo
We know, we said budget. But 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 and we thought you should know. There's proprietary audio room calibration, HDMI ARC and coming soon is AirPlay 2.View Deal

Yamaha YSP-5600 MusicCast $1700 $1600 (save $100) at Crutchfield
Another not-so-super-cheap option, but 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

Sony HT-ZF9 $900 $700 (save $200) 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

Sony HT-G700 $600 $400 (save $200) 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

Harman Kardon Enchant 1300 soundbar $1000 $400 (save $600) at Crutchfield
Want a little more? The Enchant 1300 is packed with 13 speakers (10 x 2" woofers, 2 x 1" tweeters, 1 x 3/4" tweeter) and comes with all the features of the bar above, including Chromecast. Not one we've tested, but this is a mega discount. View Deal

Bose Solo 5 TV soundbar $199 $165 (save $34) at B&H
At just 55cm long and 7cm tall, the Bose Solo 5 has to be one of the most compact soundbars we’ve ever seen. And look at the discount! This makes it perfect for those looking for a deal on something low profile enough to slip under their main TV, or want to boost the sound of a smaller bedroom set.View Deal
