Amazon is now offering the Philips B8905 3.1.2-channel Soundbar with Wireless Soundbar for $299.99 shipped with this deal matched at Best Buy today only. Normally going for $400, this 25% discount marks the first notable price drop we’ve seen for this sound system. With a maximum total system output of 600W, this soundbar and subwoofer combo will “fill the room with rich, nuanced soundtrack and thunderous effects.” You also get Dolby Atmos support with this system as the soundbar has two upwards firing speakers to create virtual height channels so you can hear action happening above you with the ability to expand the setup with DTS Play-Fi-enabled speakers for a true surround experience. Spotify Connect, built-in Chromecast, and Apple AirPlay 2 will allow you to stream content from your mobile device with ease, plus Alexa, Assistant, and HDMI eARC support present to boot. Head below for more.
If you’re on a tighter budget, you could instead go with the Samsung HW-A450/ZA 2.1-Channel Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer for $128. This more entry-level sound system still comes with a wireless subwoofer to add extra dynamics to the sound produced but lacks Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support. You can connect the soundbar to your TV over Bluetooth or an optical audio cable with the ability to control your Samsung TV and sound system with just one remote, reducing the complexity that can come with bigger setups. Just like the option above, you can pick up some rear channel speakers at a later date to make a surround sound system from this soundbar and subwoofer.
