I loved this Sony soundbar when I reviewed it, and it’s 40% off in this holiday deal

The best soundbars take the experience of viewing movies at home to the next level by punching up the clarity of dialogue, sound effects, and music and adding a layer of bass that the built-in speakers of even the best TVs aren’t capable of providing. You can spend lots of money on elaborate Dolby Atmos soundbars with wireless subwoofers and surround speakers, but even a compact all-in-one model can make a big difference.

A good example of the latter is the Sony HT-S2000. In our Sony HT-S2000 review, we found that it delivered an impressive level of immersion given its basic 3.1-channel speaker array and compact form factor. At its initial $499 / £449 list price, the HT-S2000 was a just-average value. But since then its price has dropped to $298 at Amazon in the US and £329 at Amazon in the UK. Those are both excellent deals, and ones well worth pursuing if you need a soundbar for yourself, or are seeking a special gift for a movie fan on your list.
