Best Soundbars for the Budget-Conscious

HAVING A HIGH DEFINITION TELEVISION IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT A SOUNDBAR.

BECAUSE AS ANY CINEPHILE WOULD TELL YOU, GOOD VIDEO QUALITY IS USELESS IF THE AUDIO QUALITY IS POOR.

Simply put, you can’t replicate the cinematic experience at home without a high definition TV and a sound system that pumps out true-to-life audio.

Gone are the days when you’d need to spend hundreds of dollars on a home theater system. Sound bars are compact, all-in-one speaker systems capable of delivering high quality sound. The most common design is a bar– long and thin and often complemented by a sub woofer.

Sound bars can be mounted on a wall or placed in front of a TV.

Sound bars aren’t that expensive.  In fact, you can get one for less than $100. Check out these budget-friendly options for people who don’t want to break the bank:
