Want to go all the way? You can also save when you buy the HT-Z9F with the wireless rear speakers, which combined with the subwoofer and soundbar, creates a full cinematic sound system.

The Sony HT-Z9F is a a 3.1-channel soundbar that can virtually create a 5.1.2 system, without taking up precious space. Plus, with a wireless subwoofer included (and rear speakers if you wish), you should get a powerful sound with thumping bass. 

Virtual Dolby Atmos means that you also get an immersive cinematic soundstage that makes you feel like you're in the heart of the action, whether you're watching TV shows, movies, or playing games. 

The HT-Z9F isn’t just about movies, though. It’s compatible with hi-res FLAC 192kHz 24bit and DSD, and the result is more engaging than you might imagine. If you have low-res audio sources, Sony offers DSEE HX plumping.

We awarded the Sony HT-Z9F four out of five stars in our review, thanks to its support for virtual Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, though you may find a more convincing performance from soundbars with upfiring tweeters like the Sonos Arc

It's worth bearing in mind that Amazon Prime Day is kicking off soon, and while we don't think this particular soundbar will drop much further in price, more recent models could be discounted heavily. But, if you want a compact soundbar that can deliver an immersive sound, this deal is worth snapping up.
