If you find yourself constantly turning up the volume just to hear any sound from your old TV, it may be time for an upgrade. Heck, even the latest OLED TV’s built-in speakers typically leave a lot to be desired. But thanks to soundbars, you can get serious upgrade your viewing experience without dropping hundreds on dollars on a new TV or a surround sound system. It’s even sweeter when you can find one of these sleek home theater upgrades on sale.
The Polk Audio Signa S2 is the best soundbar under $200 that we’ve ever tested. Right now, you can get it for just $179 on Massdrop, which is $20 off its usual price. This is also the lowest price we’ve ever seen outside of Black Friday and the holidays, making it a great time to seriously consider upgrading your TV’s sound.
We especially love this soundbar because, for around $200, you’re getting a reasonable soundbar/external subwoofer combo that still manages to look sleek and sound incredible. It also has Bluetooth (naturally), different modes for movies, music, or night audio, and three different “Clear Voice” settings to make TV show and movie watching more enjoyable whether your hearing isn’t as sharp as it used to be or you have noisy kids or you live on a busy street.
Basically, using a soundbar makes it easier to immerse yourself in the newest episode of Game of Thrones or the latest baseball game. While you may not be getting the full surround sound experience, we still think these devices are a great option for most people, especially with this discount.
To access this sale, you do need to make an account with Massdrop, but it’s free and will only take a few minutes of your time. You should also note that the Polk soundbar won’t ship until May 8, so you’ll have to wait a bit before enjoying an insane improvement in TV sound quality. But for this low price point, we still think it’s worth the wait.
This deal will be good until Wednesday, April 17, and with a limited number of units for sale, you should act sooner than later to snag this deal.
