If you’re looking for a sound bar that sounds good for yourself or your loved ones you don’t need to spend much. The SB3621n-E is a CNET Editor’s Choice and from 11/16 – 11/26 it’s less than a hundred bucks. Crazy recommendable at this price.
Vizio SB36512-F $300 (save $200)
It’s only just arrived in stores but Vizio’s first Atmos sound bar will be on sale for Black Friday. At $300 (Costco/Sam’s Club)/$350 (Best Buy/Walmart/Target) it’s the cheapest you’re going to see a sound bar like this for a very long time.
Klipsch R-10B $280 (save $220)
The Klipsch R-10B debuted back in 2014 and while we fell in love with the sound — it beat out our sentimental favorite, the Pioneer SP-SB23W — we didn’t love the $600 price tag. Now, the Klipsch is on sale for half price and is $100 cheaper than the Pioneer, making it very recommendable.
Samsung HW-N650 $280 (save $220)
Flutes, and gaming. Two things that don’t necessarily go together, unless you’re talking about the Samsung HW-N650 sound bar. This gamer-friendly speaker features a series of a holes across the top to make left-right panning more seamless. We haven’t tested the Samsung but it’s roughly half-price right now at $280 and it includes HDMI connectivity and a subwoofer.
