You're not still using your big screen TV's built-in speakers, are you? Granted, not all built-in speakers sound terrible on some modern TVs, but almost without exception, something as simple as adding a decent soundbar can significantly upgrade the audio quality. If that is the route you are considering, check out Samsung's HW-N650 Panoramic Soundbar, which is on sale right now.
Amazon has Samsung's HW-N650 Panoramic Soundbar marked down to $339.90. That is 32 percent off its regular $499.99 list price—a delightful discount, especially considering that it hit a day ahead of the 48-hour Prime Day sales event.
There are some notable features that make this an intriguing soundbar. One of them is what Samsung calls Acoustic Beam technology. According to Samsung, this "mixes and delivers the sound via a set of precisely placed openings at the top of the soundbar, so sound appears to come from where the action is happening on screen," as shown in the image above.
It also boasts a Game Mode. What this does is automatically optimize the sound based on the game you are playing, while utilizing the directional ports on the top.
This a 5.1-channel soundbar includes a wireless subwoofer. It has a total power rating of 360W, a 4K pass-through, and Bluetooth support so you can beam music from virtually whatever streaming service you prefer.
The soundbar is also upgradeable, in that you can add Samsung's Wireless Rear Speaker Kit (SWA-8500S) down the line (it's priced at $72.92 on Amazon, versus Samsung's $129.99 MSRP).
