The HTX8500 gives you access to Dolby Atmos, albeit via virtual decoding, to a maximum of 7.1.2 channels, clear dialogue and a built-in subwoofer. It's an all-in-one bar for those looking for a neater solution and right now, Amazon is selling this soundbar for 50% off, taking it down to $200.

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 Dolby Atmos soundbar:$499.99$399.99 at Best Buy

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 Dolby Atmos soundbar: was $499.99 now $399.99 at Best Buy
Bose’s least expensive Dolby Atmos soundbar is now even more affordable with this $100 off Best Buy official Black Friday deal. In our Bose 600 review, we praised its great dialogue clarity and spacious presentation of Dolby Atmos soundtracks. Bose’s soundbar also has 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 even before Black Friday tomorrow. 

Samsung HW-Q800C Dolby Atmos soundbar:$999.99 $689.99 at Best Buy

Samsung HW-Q800C Dolby Atmos soundbar: was $999.99 now $689.99 at Best Buy
This Best Buy official Black Friday deal takes $310 off Samsung’s HW-Q800C 5.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos soundbar system. In our Samsung HW-Q800C review, we liked both its DTS:X support and the sense of immersion delivered by its upfiring speaker drivers. The HW-Q800C also supports Q Symphony, which lets you combine its output with the built-in speakers on a Samsung TV for even better audio immersion. Even if you don’t own a Samsung TV, this deal is a no-brainer. 

Sony HT-A7000 Dolby Atmos soundbar: $1,399.99$998 at Amazon

Sony HT-A7000 Dolby Atmos soundbar: was $1,399.99 now $998 at Amazon
The Sony HT-A7000 is a Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatible soundbar with a crystal clear dialogue and a host of connectivity options including two HDMI 2.1 ports for games consoles. In our Sony HT-A7000 review, we said it was a "powerful, room-filling soundbar". There are optional surrounds and a sub you can add in for the extra oomph, but this deal at Amazon taking the Sony HT-A7000 below $1,000 gives you an all-in-one Dolby Atmos soundbar option.

UK deals 

Samsung HW-Q600C Dolby Atmos soundbar: £599.99£284.85 at Amazon

Samsung HW-Q600C Dolby Atmos soundbar: was £599.99 now £284.85 at Amazon
One of the entry-level soundbars in Samsung's 2023 range, the Samsung HW-Q600C gives you Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatibility across 3.1.2 channels and has Q Symphony support, making it an ideal budget choice for those with a Samsung TV. This deal at Amazon takes an incredible 53%, or £315, off this incredible Samsung soundbar. 

Samsung HW-Q930C Dolby Atmos soundbar:£1,149£594.99 at Amazon

Samsung HW-Q930C Dolby Atmos soundbar: was £1,149 now £594.99 at Amazon
This is simply incredible value. 9.1.4 channels of immersive sound for this price, with totally wireless rear speakers, are extremely rare – and Samsung's audio quality for its soundbars is second to none. You've got HDMI passthrough and wireless music playback as bonuses too. This has been £579 in the past, so it may fall to that price again or a little cheaper closer to Black Friday, but we'd be amazed if it went lower than £569 considering it's already half price!

Samsung Q990C 11.1.4 channel Dolby Atmos soundbar:£1,599.99 £919.99 at Amazon

Samsung Q990C 11.1.4 channel Dolby Atmos soundbar: was £1,599.99 now £919.99 at Amazon
Samsung’s HW-Q990C soundbar is selling for under £1,000 at Amazon? Sign us up! The HW-Q990C, Samsung’s flagship Dolby Atmos soundbar system, is equipped with 11.1.4 speaker channels for the ultimate in Dolby Atmos (and DTS:X) immersion and delivers it using 656W of power. In our Samsung HW-Q990C review, we found much to love about its performance, specifically the robust bass and truly cinematic surround. The only thing we didn’t like was its high price, but with this deep Amazon Black Friday discount, that’s no longer an issue. 

In the US, there's a good mix of soundbars across the board from various manufacturers. The Sony HTX8500 is not one we've reviewed ourselves but it is one I have experience with from my days in AV retail. It's a punchy soundbar that does a good job with Dolby Atmos and for under $200, it's a steal. 

The Bose Smart Soundbar 600 gives big Dolby Atmos audio from a sleekly designed soundbar and for under $400, it's a real Sonos Beam rival. The Samsung HW-Q800C is one we called "the best value Dolby Atmos soundbar in town" in our review, and that value has got even better as its price has dropped to $689.99 and for that money you're getting a lot of soundbar. 

Finally there's the Sony HT-A7000, which still carries a premium price even with the $400 discount, but for that price you're getting beautifully clear dialogue, a wide soundstage and accurate Dolby Atmos sound. There's also the two HDMI 2.1 ports to connect your consoles to and thanks to an update, it supports 120Hz gaming.

In the UK, all the best deals are Samsung soundbars and that's simply because they are among the best soundbars around. The Samsung HW-600C gives you Dolby Atmos sound with a separate subwoofer and dedicated height speakers in the bar itself for under £300. 

Now, the next two bars are the Samsung HW-Q930C and the Samsung HW-Q990C. Both are excellent soundbars with plenty of channels, 9.1.4 and 11.1.4 respectively. These soundbars offer big, powerful sound, a wide soundstage and real Dolby Atmos immersion. In our Samsung HW-990C review, we said it gives you an "exceptionally immersive and full surround sound expereince" and it's hands-down one the best Dolby Atmos soundbars on the market. There's a £400 difference between these two with what appears to be little difference, but they're both here to suit any budget.
