No wires for you! (Well, a few wires actually).

Update: New versions!

Depending on your living situation you might be able to lace your wall with speaker cable, but that’s not an option for a lot of people, including me, and it’s a pain. Enter the Vizio S4251w-B4 5.1 Soundbar, a very cool product with a terrible name. The Vizio has all the trimmings you’d expect from a budget soundbar, but pulls a Roku 3 trick by connecting the rear left and right speakers to the wireless subwoofer, effectively giving you actual 5.1 surround with a soundbar system. It’s kind of cheating, and kind of brilliant.
