Newegg offers the Samsung HW-N550 3.1-Channel Bluetooth Soundbar for $239.99 shipped. Note: You may have to select “request price” first if you’re not logged in to a Newegg account. That’s good for a 40% discount from the going rate at B&H and Samsung direct, is $39 under our previous mention and comes within $12 of the Amazon all-time low. Touting 380W of power out, Samsung’s Soundbar features a 3-channel speaker array that is backed by a wireless subwoofer for added bass. In terms of I/O, you’re looking at both HDMI and optical inputs alongside Bluetooth connectivity. If you’re still relying on your TV’s built-in speakers, this soundbar is a notable way to upgrade your movie-watching experience. Rated 3.8/5 stars.
Update 4/9 @ 4:30 PM: Fluance Audio via Amazon offers its AB40 High Performance Soundbase Home Theater System for $209.96 shipped. You’d usually pay $250 for the soundbase, with today’s offer saving you $40 and returning the price to match the previous price drop. For comparison, it comes with $10 of the Amazon all-time low. Thanks to a 5.1-channel audio array, it offers virtual 3D surround sound. Rated 3.9/5 stars.
Alternatively, consider bringing home the VIZIO 28-Inch 2.1-Channel Sound bar with wireless subwoofer for $130 shipped. It lacks the room-filling accomplished by Samsung’s 3.1-channel speaker array, but is a budget-friendly way to upgrade your audio.
If you’re looking for an Alexa-enabled soundbar, we just recently went hands-on with Polk Audio’s Command Bar, which leverages superb microphones to let you ditch the remote for Alexa.
