If you want decent audio for movies, TV, and games but without having to get a home theater system, get a soundbar, like the deal on this one from Polk Audio. For Black Friday Amazon is taking $50 off the price of this Polk Audio Signa S2 soundbar and subwoofer combo, a deal that brings the price down to just $150.
It can support wireless and HDMI connection types. Plus it supports optical and comes with its own HDMI and optical cables. Meaning you have a couple less things to buy to get this up and running with your TV. The wireless connectivity is Bluetooth, while the HDMI plugin is HDMI ARC. There’s also a 3.5mm aux plugin, and the standard TV optical.
With support for Dolby Digital plus the inclusion of the subwoofer, you’ll have room filling sound for any of your entertainment. It’s also designed to take up less space, and features a low-profile design. So you should have some extra room under your TV. Or, you can choose to wall mount it instead, as there is support for that too.
Another benefit of something like this compared to more complex audio equipment, is the ease of use and setup. It should only take you a few minutes to get this plugged in and connected to your TV. Then you can get straight to watching or playing something.
Moving back to the Bluetooth capabilities, this makes for an easy connection to smart devices. Which in turn makes it easy to stream music and other content from services like Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music, Pandora and more.
This does come with a compact remote for controlling everything. Which has buttons for volume, bass, TV, aux, Bluetooth, power, muting the audio, and swapping between a few different modes. Although, there are some buttons on top of the soundbar too that allow for adjustment of some of the same things.
