That's great news for anyone looking for a soundbar with both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support, along with a dedicated center-channel speaker to deliver clear dialogue. This deep price cut is quite likely to remain after Black Friday, but there's no reason not to grab Amazon's deal now.

Samsung HW-C450:$197.99$137.99 at Amazon

Samsung HW-C450: was $197.99 now $137.99 at Amazon
This smaller soundbar is suitable for TVs of 42 inches and up, but promises a big punch. It connects over optical cable, so doesn't use up an HDMI port, and has some smart features, including dialogue boost mode, Bluetooth for music, and virtual surround from DTS:X. This is the joint-cheapest we've seen this model, which was released early in 2023.

LG SQC4R:$399.99$179.99 at Best Buy

LG SQC4R: was $399.99 now $179.99 at Best Buy
This 4.1-channel surround-sound setup delivers stereo front channels from the soundbar, and then two rear channels from speakers connected a wireless module, so there's no cable from front to back.

Sonos Arc Dolby Atmos soundbar: was $899 now $719 at Sonos
This 20% off deal at Sonos is in-line with the cheapest we've ever seen the Arc, so we wouldn't wait on it. For the money you're getting a punchy, powerful Dolby Atmos compatible soundbar that also sounds sensational for music. Setup is incredibly simple too. This is Sonos, remember, the firm that wrote the book on multi-room audio for your home. Will it drop by another $25 this year? Unlikely.

What’s most unique about the Bar 9.1 is its detachable battery powered surround speakers, which give you true wire-free surround sound.

Bose’s soundbar also has Amazon Alexa built-in for voice control, and it supports AirPlay 2 and Chromecast for wireless streaming of music over Wi-Fi. Deals this deep on a Bose soundbar are rare and we don’t expect it to go any lower, so this is one deal you’ll want to jump on this Black Friday.
